LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global aerogel market report. This research report also lists five other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The automotive segment is a key application area for aerogels and accounted for a 4.9% share of the global aerogel market in 2015. The segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 28.06% during the forecast period. The demand for aerogels is growing from the automotive segment owing to their unique properties like excellent thermal resistance, enhanced acoustic insulation, light weight, reduced thickness, and fire and water resistance.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global aerogel market is consolidated with the presence of few large global vendors and the competition is high. These players have vast geographical presence with production facilities located globally. Apart from these large vendors, there are few small regional vendors with significant shares in the market.

Although aerogel is priced at a premium, the material has a wide range of applications. Commercialization of a new aerogel production technology, which uses rice husk as raw material, is expected to change the market dynamics by lowering prices. Vendors are investing heavily to find new production methods and aerogel variants for diverse applications,” says Swapnil Tejveer Sharma, a lead plastics, polymers, and elastomers analyst from Technavio.

Many patents are filed by vendors in this market for applications such as thermal insulation, adsorption of oil spills, new devices for drug delivery, and composite fibers. The number of patents related to aerogels has increased by more than 500% over the past 20 years. This drastic increase provides evidence of the extent of research and investments being made in the industry.
