Cellular Glass Market: Innovating Newer Strategies and Propelling towards a New Height

Cellular glass is a glass foam formed from a reaction between carbon and glass at elevated temperature. It is a glass material with cellular that offers enhanced insulation, lightweight and durable insulation to materials. Because of its thermal properties, it is widely used as a thermal insulation material in various chemical industries. Also, its high compressive strength makes it a suitable material for insulating roof tops covered with bitumen and other heavy materials. It is also utilized with adhesives and in membranes that require barrier to air and liquid.

Factors Enhancing Growth of the Industry

Insulation materials are those that are used in construction process for providing thermal insulation. Rising urban population has enhanced the construction activity around the world. Cellular glass is also used as an insulation material in construction of floors, walls, and roofs by the end-users. With the rise in urban population, the construction of new homes, commercial buildings, and other construction activities has enhanced the application of cellular glass in previous years.  Cellular glass is also used as insulation material in cold storage facilities, as flotation blocks for nets in submarines. These are considered as the major attributors of the growth of the global cellular glass market.
