Global Thin Insulation Market: Overview
Insulation needs to be thick but in certain cases space is as issue hence thin insulation is needed to tackle such problems. Different kind of plastic foams is used in various applications of the thin insulation, which includes polyimide, polyisocyanurate insulation, XPS, polytetrafluoroethylene, EPS, phenolic foams, and polyurethane foams. These plastic foams possess excellent thermal resistivity hence they are widely used in automotive, construction, and oil & gas industries. Commonly preferred plastic foams size is 10mm to 20mm in thickness; it may assist in resolving space and reliability issues in the construction industry.
Global Thin Insulation Market: Growth Factors
Plastic foams are extensively used in the automotive industry owing to their excellent thermal resistivity coupled with developments in building thermal applications and growing infrastructure development activities. Increasing use of plastic foams in various industries such as automotive, oil & gas, and others are fuelling thin insulation market demand in the coming years. The buildings that have thin walls or timber constructions need additional insulation support for a better result thus increasing the demand for thin insulation. Thin insulation in automotive sector will offer improved braking performance and prevent sound and heat transfer in the vehicle which in turn will improve the growth of the market.
