  • Blanket emerged as the largest form segment in 2016, accounting for 70.3% of the global revenue. Monolith, particle, and panel together made up for rest of the global revenue.
  • On the basis of end use, the building and construction sector is slated to hold the largest market share by 2025 in terms of revenue. Space heating consumes most of the energy in homes and efforts are being taken to increase the usage of aerogel for insulation
  • By technology, supercritical drying was estimated to be the largest segment in 2016, accounting for 78.1% of the global revenue
  • Europe was the second-largest market, driven by projects such as AerSUS (run by a group of companies and research institutions to develop new aerogel applications and products for the aerospace industry). Such initiatives are expected to result in the further expansion of the aerogel market in Europe
  • The global aerogel market is highly competitive with a handful of key players such as Aspen Aerogels and Cabot Corporation holding a majority share of the market.
