Technical insulation refers to the term used in polyurethanes to describe the reduction of heat transfer between various objects and insulation properties in several applications. Its typical applications include water heaters, refrigerated transport, discontinued panels, thermal boxes, and others. Technical insulation is the most effective and least expensive material for the reduction of carbon dioxide. The materials should meet the following requirement such as thermal conductivity, fire behavior, mechanical stability and other such factors. The materials are generally used in buildings to prevent heat transfer and sound mitigation. Technical insulation in terms of material is categorized into hot insulation, cold flexible insulation, and cold rigid insulation.

Covid-19 scenario analysis:

  • The demand for the technical insulation forms is expected to decrease in 2020 due to lockdown imposed by the government and low demand from various industries.
  • Coronavirus has affected the import and export of construction materials. China is the largest exporter of construction materials globally. Negative trends in the economy of China are anticipated to reduce the global import and export throughout the globe.
  • Demand for new construction materials have witnessed a massive negative shift since the corona outbreak in December 2019, with manufactures and investors fearing an excessively receding economic growth.
  • Travel prohibitions around the globe have affected the trade of construction materials. Thus, the supply and demand for construction materials are almost halted throughout the globe.
  • Construction materials manufacturing companies located in China, are the major sufferers of from the virus outbreak, owing to lockdown and unavailability of logistics in the region.
  • The major hindrance for the global construction materials market comes from the orders of home quarantine by respective governments, which has led to the discontinuing of production of construction materials.
  • Decreased consumer demand and consumption has led to reduction and slowdown of sales of construction materials all over the globe over the course of the current economic year.
  • Therefore, technical insulation market is expected to be negatively affected in 2020.

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends , Drivers and Impact Analysis

The increase in demand for green and sustainable construction to reduce the carbon content in the environment, disaster resiliency, and heating & cooling benefits is expected to boost the growth of the technical insulation market. The rise in demand to preserve energy in automated plants by increasing the efficiency of plants boosts the market growth. The moderate thermal conductivity, noise reduction, corrosion resistance, and low water absorption are the features of the insulation materials required for technical insulation. Thus, these properties are expected to boost the growth of the technical insulation market. The increase in demand for the man made mineral fibers such as technical insulation materials, which are used in insulated pipes owing to the optimal temperature control in the hot and cold pipes is expected to propel the growth of the technical insulation market. The increase in demand for the power and energy due to increase in industrialization creates demand for technical insulation in power generation industries. The U.S holds the largest market share in the technical insulation market owing to the increase in green buildings and developed infrastructure. However, the high cost of technical insulation materials is anticipated to hamper the growth of the market.

The global technical insulation forms market trends are:

New launches to flourish the market

There is growing focus on technical insulation foams. For example, in October 2019 one of the global leader in technical insulation Demilec Inc., has launched a spray polyurethane foam insulation. Further, in March 2019, Weidmann industries has announced the launch the technical insulation T7 transformer board. The product is specially designed for the transformer manufacturers having a lower density and increased elasticity.

High demand from applications :

The demand for high quality technical insulation construction material in various industries such as oil & gas, food processing, power & energy, and other industries boosts the growth of the technical insulation market. Technical insulation is used in discontinuous panels water heaters, cool boxes, reefers, refrigerated transport, and commercial units. For example, in food processing industries, the cold rigid polyurethane material is required to assist chilling and refrigeration of foods. Further, in food transport vehicles discontinuous panels are installed to control the temperature of the food materials. Moreover, the storage and production of the hot water in insulated boilers is an important application of technical insulation materials. Technical insulation materials such as pre-insulated pipes play a major role in the chemical & petrochemical industries as these facilitate the flow of materials and energy. Other applications of technical insulation include pipe & tanks insulation, insulation of livestock buildings, vehicle construction, insulation during industrial equipment construction, and others.
