According to a new study by Future Market Insights (FMI), the Thermal Insulation Materials market is set to grow steadily at a CAGR of over 4% through the end of the forecast period in 2031. Increasing demand for temperature control and energy efficiency from the construction and automotive industries is expected to drive demand for thermal insulation materials.

Global demand for thermal insulation materials has rapidly gained momentum due to concerns related to energy conservation. Strict government regulations related to emissions from the construction and automotive sectors will boost demand over the long term.

In construction operations, thermal insulation also provides benefits in supporting ancillary building structures, including roofs and floors. Niche applications in aerospace structures are driving investment in research and product development alongside investment in smart city infrastructure, with a focus on materials and design.

End-user customization of product offerings based on density, thermal conductivity, thickness and more will influence market developments for the foreseeable future. The growing demand for thermal insulation materials, especially from emerging economies, offers important growth opportunities.
