Phase change materials (PCM) are kind of materials whose phase change, from solid to liquid and vice versa. These are used to store and release the heat. The energy stored in PCM's can be use later. The PCM's property of absorbing and releasing large amounts of heat in a controlled way can be utilized to improve the thermal performance of various end use products to which the PCMs are applied.
Phase change materials (PCM) can be categories by type into organic and inorganic. These materials are sub classified as paraffins, salt hydrates and fatty acids. Eutectic liquids are used for cooling of deep frozen applications. Salt hydrates contain inorganic salt and water. It has favorable material costs, high latent melting heat, good thermal conductivity and non-combustible. The organic PCM's come from plant oil or animal fat. The range of melting temperatures is wide and lie between -30 °C and 150 °C. The latent heat is good and most vegetable fats derived from fatty acids have better efficiency than salt hydrates and paraffins. Phase change materials (PCM) has wide area of end use industry applications including building & construction, HVAC, cold chain & packaging, thermal energy storage, textile, and electronics. Phase change material (PCM) such as paraffin can be incorporated into textile materials through spinning dope, and mixing it into the insulating foams or coating, so providing a thermal regulating function. It is also used in building and construction industry for regulating the heat. It can also can be applied in solar energy storage, smart housing, agricultural greenhouses, temperature-regulating textiles, heat management of electronics, telecommunications and microprocessor equipment, and biomedical and biological carrying systems.
The global phase change materials research report sheds light on the market circumstances by carrying out primary and secondary research for more than 320 hours. As per the report, the global phase change materials market is growing at a fast pace and increasing its geographical footprint rapidly. The global phase change materials market is valued at US $ xxx million dollars in 2019 which is forecast to grow at CAGR of xx% and reach a massive US $ xxx million dollars by the end of 2024 in value.
The growth is comparatively higher in Europe region due rise in demand from end use industry. The major driving factors for the growth of phase change materials is the rising housing construction and HAVC sector as it's a non-flammable materials. Also, technological innovation in PCM based fabric design is propelling the growth of phase change materials..
The raw material price volatility is the major impediment to the global phase change materials market growth.
Phase change materials enjoy wide usage across all major regions in the world including Europe, APAC, North America, Middle East, Africa, and South America.
