Aerogel – The World’s Lightest Solid – Finds Application Across Various Industries, With the Most Noteworthy Growth in the Transportation Sector in Recent Years

Fri, 20 September 2019 11:34

Aerogel finds an array of applications in aerospace, oil and gas, automobile, marine, and construction, among various other industries. The material exhibits low density, high porosity, and high thermal and acoustic damping. Moreover, aerogels are good substitutes for thermal insulation while being cost-effective; these factors are projected to drive the global aerogel market during the forecast period, 2019–2026. 

The silica aerogel segment is gaining traction in the aerospace industry, owing to the material’s lightweight and superior insulation. Furthermore, in the construction sector, silica aerogel is used in glass units, architectural panels, and tensile roofing systems. Silica aerogel has low thermal conductivity, low density, low refractive index, high transparency, and low sound speed, which makes it suitable for applications in various industrial verticals.
