The insulation coatings market is estimated to be USD 8.5 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 11.3 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 5.8% between 2020 and 2025. Protection of equipment, pipelines, and other components from harsh environments to make them energy efficient are the major drivers of the global insulation market during the forecast period.
Insulation coating prevents the transfer of heat, sound, or electricity from one surface area to another. These coatings help in personnel protection, saves energy, and contribute to the improvement in the overall process efficiency. They are manufactured using various materials such as acrylic, epoxy, polyurethane, mullite and yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ).
