Region :Global | Report ID: FBI102358 | Status : Ongoing



Microporous insulation refers to a composite material contained in the form of fibers or compacted powder distinguished by an interconnecting pore size equivalent to the normal free path of atmospheric pressure air molecules. Microporous insulation generally contains opacifiers for reducing the amount of radiant heat transmission. Microporous content is fully shielded, and content is entirely inorganic, making it non-combustible and ideal for passive fire protection applications. Microporous insulation materials are less dense, and thus makes them suitable for use in high-temperature applications such as aerospace, low-temperature cooling, and cryogenic applications, and other industrial applications. Microporous insulation products and materials are a combination of fibres, silica, and specially formulated infrared opacifiers, which is capable of reducing the cycle of heat transfer by absorbing and reflecting the radiant heat.

Up Arrow

Key Market Driver -

Strong demand in aerospace & defense and automotive industry drives the microporous insulation market.

Down Arrow

Key Market Restraint -

Implementation of stringent environmental standards imposed by law-makers around the globe, in response to the toxic nature of certain insulation materials has restrained the market growth.

The global microporous insulation market is witnessing considerable expansion globally, with a significant CAGR anticipated throughout the forecast period extending to 2032. In the aerospace application, the market for microporous insulation is growing due to the increasing demand for lightweight materials, which in turn saves the fuel consumed during aircraft operation. Additionally, the use of microporous insulation delivers high performance and helps to meet the aerospace industry space and weight requirements. It is the sector which is most demanding in terms of performance & reliability due to operational and safety reasons. In the automotive industry, in cars, microporous insulation materials are used to minimize surface temperature, friction, and resistance to vibration, which helps improve acoustic performance and decreases design costs. These are used in exhaust systems, catalytic converters, and filters for diesel particulate matter. Besides, the demand for microporous insulation is increasing as it improves fuel efficiency.

However, the presence of stringent regulations regarding the use of insulation materials that comply with Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) can hinder the microporous insulation market growth.
