The Aerogel Market Will Enter A Stage Of Rapid Growth. In 2022, China's Consumption Will Reach 51 Thousand And 600 Tons
The aerogel market will enter a stage of rapid growth. In 2022, China's consumption will reach 51 thousand and 600 tons.
Aerogel is the world's smallest density and nanometer size solid. There are many kinds of solids, such as silicon, carbon, sulphur, metal oxide and metal. It was first made by American scientist Kistler in 1931, and it was only in the last 10 years that small-scale production began using supercritical technology.
At present, the domestic aerogel market has just started. There are few production enterprises, and the main products are relatively elementary. They are basically producing powder aerogels, which can produce composite materials, such as Nano High Tech Co., Ltd., Guangdong Alison high and New Technology Co., Ltd., Zhejiang Tong Rui new material technology Co., Ltd. A few companies have an annual capacity of about 26 thousand tons.
With the transformation and upgrading of China's economy, the continuous promotion of energy saving and consumption reduction policies and the implementation of nanomaterial strategy for many years, aerogel materials have been widely concerned by government, academia, business circles and investment circles in recent years. Aerogel is one of the high technology and products that China is showing almost synchronously and highly competitive with the world counterparts. In a sense, the development of aerogel industry in China will have a greater impact on the development of the world aerogel industry. Data show that in 2016, the output of aerogels in China was about 18 thousand and 300 tons, with an average annual growth rate of about 25% in recent years.
The domestic market started late, mainly in the early stage of overseas aerogel products sold, the price is more expensive, and the market promotion efforts are also small. In recent years, with the gradual increase of domestic aerogel enterprises, the strength is constantly increasing, the cost is declining and the scale is expanding. Thanks to the implementation of the policy of energy saving and emission reduction and the rapid expansion of economic volume, the aerogel industry has entered a fast development channel. In 2016, the output of aerogels in China was about 18 thousand and 300 tons, with an import volume of about 21 thousand and 800 tons, and export volume was very small. Domestic consumption was about 40 thousand and 100 tons.
With the reduction of aerogel process cost and the continuous expansion of industrial scale, some emerging applications have been continuously developed, and the aerogel market has become increasingly mature. As an emerging economy, China will increase rapidly at a faster rate than the international average in terms of market growth, and will enter a rapid growth stage in the next few years. It is estimated that by 2022, the output of aerogels will reach 220 thousand tons and consumption will be 51 thousand and 600 tons.
According to the China thermal insulation materials industry "13th Five-Year" development plan, it is estimated that the output value of thermal insulation materials will reach 150 billion yuan in 2020. According to the application status, aerogel materials will be widely applied in the fields of industry and equipment in the year of 2015~2020. About about 50,000,000,000 RMB in the market. It is expected that aerogel insulation materials will start large-scale application in the field of construction starting in 2020. In 2025, it will replace the traditional building insulation materials in an all-round way and share the domestic market of about 100 000 000 000RMB per year.
At present, the domestic demand for military products is mainly concentrated in the fields of aerospace, weapons and warships; petrochemical, rail transit, electric power industry, underground mine life-saving cabin and urban heat pipe network have formed a certain market scale and continue to grow rapidly in the civil field; special clothing and tents, LNG pipelines, building energy-saving applications Also began a small trial, the late market is huge.
