The report finds that North America has been the largest market for silica aerogel. The ongoing research and development programs are propelling the regional growth in of silica aerogel. NASA, along with key industry players, has explored the use of diverse types of aerogel for multiple applications. With the financial assistance of NASA’s Fundamental Aeronautics Program (Hypersonics and Subsonic Fixed Wing Projects) and the Exploration Systems Mission Directorate, NASA’s Glenn Research Center has established methodologies that transform aerogel technology. Europe is expected to come out as the fastest growing region for silica aerogel during the forecast period. The European market is propelled by the building insulation industry and the European Union’s energy efficiency policy mandates for all buildings to cut their energy consumption by 20% (generally known as 20-20-20 energy policy) till 2020.

The raw materials used for manufacturing silica aerogel materials are environment-friendly. Silica aerogel materials are similar to naturally-occurring minerals (silicates are abundantly available minerals on Earth) that do not emit or possess harmful chemicals. Silica aerogel sponges are recyclable, and therefore, are cost-effective and eco-friendly. These features increase its applicability in various industries such as aerospace, oil & gas, electronics, healthcare, electronics and building insulation.

Silica aerogel is a reusable solid that can be used consecutively for a chain of applications and disposed of safely. For example, silica aerogel blankets used in buildings for insulation can be recycled, by being processed as additives or composites for other applications such as plasters and coatings. Most of the conventional insulating materials are non-recyclable and non-biodegradable.

The key companies operating in the global silica aerogel market include BASF SE, The Dow Chemical Company, Cabot Corporation, Aspen Aerogels, Inc., Aerogel Technologies, LLC, JIOS Aerogel Corporation, Svenska Aerogel Holding AB, MAERO TECH SDN BHD and Ocellus Inc.
