Insulation materials are considered as a basic and significant requirement aircraft industry dealing with various heat transfer unit operations. These materials are intended to retard the rate of heat flow in order to prevent/minimize the change of temperature of the system or the space. Also, aircraft insulation materials are mainly used to provide thermal, acoustic, anti-vibration, fire-barrier and electrical insulation in order to maintain passengers’ comfort. In addition, these materials also function to optimize external temperature changes as well as excessive noise generated by the aircraft in the passenger cabin and on the flight deck. Numerous insulation materials are available in a wide range of forms ranging from Foamed Plastics, Fiberglass, Mineral Wool, Ceramic-Based Materials, and Other. These are particularly suitable for thermal insulation in steam pipeline, hot water line and other industrial applications such as high performance insulation in the aircraft industry.

DuPont Launches DuPont Nomex XF for Aerospace Industry:
Company has launched DuPont Nomex XF, a unique solution for flame barrier applications in the aerospace industry, as part of a focus on protecting people. Nomex XF is a novel material that helps protect aluminum fuselage aircraft by providing a robust, durable and lightweight flame barrier that can help prevent outside fire from penetrating an aircraft cabin, allowing passengers additional time to escape such a hazard.
Drivers for the Global Aircraft Insulation Materials Market:
According to current market condition, increasing commercial aircraft deliveries, growing demand for lightweight insulation materials and growing demand for advanced acoustic and fire-resistant materials are some of the factors that are fueling the growth of the aircraft insulation market globally. Additionally, to provide more safety and comfort to the passengers, aircraft OEMs and airlines are using different aircraft insulation materials aboard the aircraft, which is driving the market growth currently.
Opportunities for the Global Aircraft Insulation Materials Market:
Foamed plastics are extensively used in aircraft for flight deck pads, cabin walls and ceilings, service-class dividers, overhead stow bins, composite cores, tooling board, aircraft prototypes, honeycomb edge closeout, vacuum-form dies/mold patterns, etc. These help to reducing noise, heat, and vibration in aircraft. Moreover, emergence of light-weight materials would bring major opportunities for the aircraft insulation materials manufacturers creating room for innovation.
Restrains for the Global Aircraft Insulation Materials Market:
The major challenge faced by the global aircraft insulation materials market is the composites or paints or chemicals manufactured by the aircraft insulation materials have low shelf life. In addition, these materials are also required to be replaced at regular intervals. This factor is expected to hinder market growth in the near future.
Region Wise, Global Aircraft Insulation Materials Market Analysis:
Region wise, global aircraft insulation materials market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa. Among all, Asia Pacific leads the global aircraft insulation materials market share due to the reason that most of the region lying in the hot, tropical zone, even the operators of general aviation aircraft in the region use different materials for thermal insulation to make the travel comfortable for the passengers. Asia Pacific region is followed by the North America and Europe.
