is a mesoporous, solid material derived by replacing the liquid component of gel with gaseous substitute to form interconnected nanostructure with high porosity. Aerogel is solid in state but its porous nature makes it extremely light weight and exhibits high thermal resistance, low density, and low thermal conductivity making it one of the most suitable material for insulation purposes in various end-use industries. Globally aerogel is used in various industries such as oil & gas, building & construction, transportation, performance coating and many others. Growing demand for superior thermal resistive material and superior performance over conventional insulation materials is driving the increasing demand for aerogel in various end-use industries. Increasing demand for light weight and fuel efficient vehicles is expected to pose a huge opportunity for aerogel market in the near future. However growth for the aerogel is expected to face hindrance due to higher cost as compared to the conventional insulation materials.
