Aerogel sponge can be used in many verticals such as oil & gas, aerospace, healthcare, electronics, building insulation, and such others. The global aerogel market was valued at $221.8 million in 2013 and it is estimated to reach $1,896.6 million by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 36.4% during the forecast period (from 2014 - 2020). With ongoing advancements in innovation of the materials and discovery of new application areas, market is expected to build more strength with time.

            Based on raw materials, the market is segmented into silicon, carbon, aluminum and other aerogel. In 2013, silica aerogel was the largest revenue-generating segment and this segment would experience substantial market growth in the coming years. Silica aerogel has a wide range of application that contributes to its market growth and they are building insulation, acoustic insulation, oil & gas, automotive thermal insulation, chemical, cryogenics, health care, and so on. Other aerogel is the fastest growing segment with a CAGR of 52.0% during the forecast period, largely due to smaller base.

            Blankets, particles, blocks and panels are the major forms in which aerogel is currently being used. In 2013, blanket constituted the largest segment in the aerogel market and is expected to experience substantial growth in coming years. Panels segment is the fastest growing with a CAGR of 41.0% during the forecast period. Due to its lower thermal conductivity, aerogel panels are used in a wide range of applications such as skylights, sloped sunrooms, conservatories, greenhouses, curtain and interior walls, walkways and canopies. In addition to that, the recently launched polyurethane aerogel insulating panel is very thin and has an easy production process. This factor is triggering the growth of aerogel panels segment.

            Aerogel have a number of applications such as building insulation, oil & gas, aerospace, automotive thermal management, health care, chemical, electronics, thermal & acoustic insulation, and such others. In 2013, building insulation application generated the largest revenue and this market would experience substantial market growth in coming years. Acoustic insulation application is the fastest growing application segment at a CAGR of 46.3% during the forecast period. The high porosity of aerogel dampens the sound velocity within it, resulting in high sound absorption capacity. This characteristic of aerogel promotes its use as an acoustic solution.
