Aerogel is chiefly referred as a strong insulator, with its better thermal insulation
capacity than conventional alternatives. However, due to relatively higher prices, its
mass adoption was limited to sophisticated applications in oil & gas industry and
aerospace. Nevertheless, due to advent of various cost-efficient aerogel manufacturing
techniques, it has now emerged as a better alternative in many applications such as
automotive, healthcare, chemicals, electronics, and building insulation. With multitude of
favorable drivers such as supporting policies pertaining to green infrastructure in
European and Middle Eastern countries, the market is anticipated to have widespread
adoption, especially in building insulation segment. In the meantime, the need for
efficient and easy to install thermal insulations, higher thermal resistance, thinner &
lighter solutions for industry purposes, and reusability has been other primary factors
elucidate the market growth.

Silica, carbon, and alumina have been the prime sources of manufacturing aerogel where
others (polymer, chalcogels, and seagels) are scarcely being used. Silica aerogel is
projected to be the most promising segment, mainly due to efficient insulation properties
and lightweight solutions. Others aerogel segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 52%
during the forecast period. The substantial growth of other types is mainly attributed to
polymer aerogel, which is emerging as an efficient and cost effective heat insulator.

The aerogel has its application in building insulations, oil & gas, acoustic,
aerospace, chemical, electronics, healthcare, automotive thermal management and others.
The others segment includes applications in agriculture, cryogenics, apparels and power
generation. Oil & gas segment leads the global aerogel application market in both in terms
of value and volume through 2020. Acoustic Insulation, building insulations and
electronics applications segments are also expected to witness significant growth rate.
Various upcoming green infrastructure policies across the world, especially in Europe and
Middle East are expected to drive the building insulation market during the analysis

Geographically, the market is segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe,
Latin America & Africa, and Middle East. Though North America currently leads the global
market, Europe will outperform North America in terms of revenue. The early adoption of
aerogel technology in these regions primary drives the market, especially in the fields of
aerospace and building insulations. However, due to plenty of scope in Europe for using
aerogel in building applications the region is expected to contribute largely to the
overall growth of the market. However, Asia Pacific is forecast to be the most lucrative
regional market, growing at a CAGR of 37.3% from 2014 to 2020.

The report analyzes top winning strategies of prominent players in the market. The
companies profiled in the report includes Aspen Aerogels Inc., American Aerogel
Corporation, Cabot Corporation, Dow Corning Corp., Svenska Aerogel AB, BASF SE, Airglass
AB, JIOS Aerogel, Active Space Technologies and Acoustiblok UK Ltd.
