The Chinese thermal insulation material market has entered a stage of steady and rapid development, with output up to 4.928 million tons in 2011, more than double the output recorded in 2005.
Following the propulsion of energy conservation and emissions reduction in China, especially the development of building energy efficiency in both depth and breadth, China's thermal insulation material market in 2012 is expected to outnumber 5.5 million tons.
The Chinese thermal insulation materials market, based on the material, can be divided into organic, inorganic and metal thermal insulation materials.
Among organic thermal insulation materials, polystyrene foam and polyurethane foam have always occupied the dominant position, however, due to flammability and toxic substances released by combustion, the former is gradually being replaced; the latter, despite excellent thermal insulation properties, has frequently caused fire because of low (B grade) fireproof performance.
Relying on the advantages in fire prevention, thermal insulation and price, foam glass has achieved mass production in regions including Jiaxing (Zhejiang Province) and Lanzhou (Gansu Province), and representative enterprises include Zhejiang ZhenShen Cold Insulation Technology Co., Ltd., Zhejiang Dehe Cold Insulation Technology Co., Ltd. and Lanzhou Pengfei Heat Preservation Co., Ltd.
