Global Industrial Insulation Market Highlights Over 2022 – 2031

The global industrial insulation market garnered revenue of approximately USD 2,400 million by the end of 2021. The market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of ~6% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. The growth of the market can be attributed to strict regulations by the government that mandates industrial insulation for energy conservation purposes. Various industrial operating standards are established by agencies such as the United States Department of Energy, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), the European Environmental Bureau, the European Commission, and others that require industries to insulate their premises. Additionally, industrial insulation makes the production process more effective by improving the performance of machines by eliminating heat transfer which is expected to contribute towards market growth in the upcoming years. Industrial insulators terminate the need for a heating system as well as reduce the cost of industrial operations which is anticipated to further propel the growth of the market.


Global Industrial Insulation Market Trends, Industry Analysis




Insulation is a green choice for industries as it helps in environment protection by reducing heat transfer and energy loss. Moreover, industrial insulation also provides safety to the employees working in the industry by balancing the temperature and minimizing burns and damages that may occur while working on metal equipment. Industrial insulators act as a barrier to harsh sounds generated by machines that negatively affect the workers. Thus, industrial insulation carries great importance in industrial operations. However, huge installation expenditure and frequent fluctuations in the cost of raw materials that are used to make insulators are expected to adversely affect the growth of the market.

The global industrial insulation market is segmented on the basis of material type into mineral wood, ceramic fiber, calcium silicate, and others out of which the mineral wool segment is estimated to hold the largest share of the market over the forecast period. Mineral wool has high thermal conductivity and is non-flammable, as well as it can be recycled completely. Besides this, these wools also have a broad range of other industrial applications, which is expected to contribute towards the market growth during the forecast period.
