Thermal Insulation Coatings Market Segment Analysis - Process

Plasma spraying process is widely used in the thermal insulation coatings market. In the past decades, the requirement for improved fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions from diesel engines has been a driving force for the automotive industry. Using plasma spraying to apply a thermal insulation coating on parts of the combustion chamber of the engine would be one way to achieve this. Suspension plasma spray (SPS) is a thermal spray method to offer coatings with appropriate properties. In this work, SPS, which uses liquid feedstock for the deposition of finely formed ceramic columnar coatings, was investigated for use in light-duty diesel engines. Also, plasma-sprayed (PS) thermal insulation coatings made of yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) are still the coatings of choice for the metallic components of the hottest part of aeronautical and utility gas turbines. These coating systems delay the onset of thermally induced failures by reducing the temperature and the oxidation rate of the metal substrate.

Thermal Insulation Coatings Market Segment Analysis - Fillers Type

Radiative thermal insulation coatings are highly preferred filler types in the thermal insulation coatings market in 2019. Radiative thermal insulation coatings are a series of special fillers capable of converting the absorbed energy into molecular vibration and rotational energy, so that the absorbed energy can subsequently be transmitted in the form of thermal radiation into outer space. Based on these, the object filled with thermal radiation film can radiate more energy to outer space than it absorbs from the solar at a certain wavelength; as a result, the radiative thermal insulation film can cool the shielded object effectively. The radiative fillers displayed excellent potential for thermal radiation when the earth's outer surface atmosphere is controlled as a "window”. Fillers with good absorption in the band from 8 to 13 μm are therefore the answer to coatings in order to satisfy higher film emissivity. The main factor in achieving excellent thermal radiation in coatings is radiative fillers, so the production of new radiative fillers has promoted the thermal insulation efficiency of coatings in recent years.

Thermal Insulation Coatings Market Segment Analysis - Density Requirement

The density of 20 to 24 Kg/m³ between 20 to 25°C includes about 0.0245/0.0211 ((W m-1 °C-1) / (kcal h-1 m-1 °C-1)) of thermal conductivity owing to which the demand of polyurethane thermal insulation coatings in roof and wall acorss buldings and construction tends to increase the market growth.The density of 30 Kg/m³ between 20 to 25°C includes about 0.0225/0.0193 ((W m-1 °C-1) / (kcal h-1 m-1 °C-1)) of thermal conductivity.Owing to which the polyuretahne foam come up with good thermal insulating properties, which tends to increase its applicatrion across different sector. Also, the polyurethane foam with density of 40 Kg/m³ and 80 Kg/m³ between 20 to 25°C includes about 0.023/0.02 ((W m-1 °C-1) / (kcal h-1 m-1 °C-1))  and 0.04/0.34 ((W m-1 °C-1) / (kcal h-1 m-1 °C-1)) of thermal conductivity respectively.The polyurethane foam of such density have little high thermal conductivity as compare to others, but, the recent innovations have decided to lower the formulation level of this type of polyurethane foams, this step comes up with better results. These factors tends to increase the growth of the market.

Thermal Insulation Coatings Market Drivers

Growing demand for energy saving coatings

The surface temperature of the material increases due to the accumulated heat as it absorbs solar energy, and the high temperature caused by solar radiation causes many inconveniences and even problems in industrial development and daily life. A large amount of energy is consumed to maintain the proper temperature of the object. The production of reliable and economical thermal insulation materials is the key to meeting the urgent energy saving and pollution mitigation needs. Due to its good thermal insulation efficiency, economical, simple to use and adaptability to a wide range of substrates, the thermal insulation coating is increasingly common in the face of a variety of choice of thermal insulation materials. With the thermal insulation functional fillers in the coating system, the film shows a certain thermal insulation effect by reflecting, radiating or insulating heat. As a result, the surface temperature of the material will be substantially reduced when protected by thermal insulation coatings.  The growing demand for energy saving coatings will tend to increase the market growth of thermal insulation coatings.

Increasing development of advanced thermal insulation coatings

Researchers and manufacturers are looking at effective and advanced thermal insulation coating material to reduce the energy consumption. Over the past few years, a number of ceramic materials, mostly oxides have been suggested as new thermal insulation coating (TIC) materials. Numerous industries are incorporating the thermal insulation coatings at industrial level to attain the energy saving needs. As an example, in heavy duty gas turbines continuously increasing hot gas temperatures leads to increased thermal loadings of the hot gas path materials. In this scenario, thermal insulation coatings come into important role as they provide reduction in the super alloys temperature and cooling air needs. It has been estimated that the thermal insulation coating material with increased temperature capability enables the next generation of gas turbine with >60% combined cycle efficiency. Thus, the growing demand of advanced thermal insulation coatings will lead towards the growth of the thermal insulation coatings market globally over the forecast period.

Thermal Insulation Coatings Market Challenges

Fluctuation in Raw Material Prices and its availability can restrict the market growth

Raw material costs play a critical role in determining the total cost of the finished product. Currency fluctuations are likely to result in unpredictable prices for raw materials. Another aspect that is expected to slow market growth is the high cost of coating formulations. Factors responsible for fluctuation in raw material prices are capital involved in synthesis and manufacturing which is basically a whole value chain. As an example, Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) nano-clusters are synthesized by a sol–gel process. The synthesized powders of Yttria-stabilized zirconia are characterized by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, thermo-gravimetric analysis and differential scanning calorimetry, and Raman spectroscopy.  These characterization processes involve excess capital which makes the end product expensive. This in turn fluctuates the overall price of thermal insulation coatings when the raw material is sourced/manufactured or procured expensively. 

Market Landscape

Technology launches, acquisitions, and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the thermal insulation coatings market. In 2019, the market of thermal insulation coatings has been consolidated by the top ten seven players accounting for 27.4% of the share. Major players in the thermal insulation coatings market are AkzoNobel N.V., The Dow Chemical Company, PPG industries, Inc., Sherwin-Williams Company, Mascoat, Jotun Group, Nippon Holdings Co.
