Comfort through Body Temperature Regulation Drives Market Growth

This market insight is about microencapsulated phase change materials (MPCM) as incorporated into textile components such as fibers, yarns, fabrics, foams and gels. These textile components, when used in manufacturing garments, apparel, bedding and mattresses, become endowed with temperature control properties. Temperature control relative to ambient temperature makes the wearer of the garment comfortable despite being in extreme weather conditions or while exercising, and provides comfortable sleep when applied to mattresses. The regional scope of this market insight report is global.

Key Findings
-The global microencapsulated phase change materials (MPCM) market in textile and mattress was valued at $ million in 2013, expanding at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of % during 2013–2018.
-An overarching growth driver for phase change materials (PCM) in textiles is the increased comfort of the apparel. Textiles (particularly fueled by a growing interest in smart textiles in active wear) and bedding and mattresses are expected to be a growth area for PCMs.
-The high performance and cost-effectiveness of MPCM have to be established with R&D at four stages: bulk PCM, MPCM, components (fibers, yarns, fabrics, foams with MPCM), and finally the end product worn at comfortable skin or body temperature.
-Microencapsulation of the selected PCM makes its performance in the application more consistent and predictable, as the PCM can be more uniformly distributed across the appropriate parts of the application.
-Organics (mainly paraffin and bio-based) have higher stability levels than inorganics (mainly salt hydrate and metals), enabling them to emerge as an ideal material choice.
-Paraffin is a commonly used PCM. Although a range of paraffins is available, preference of one over another depends on the intended end-use application.
-PCM are witnessing high growth in volume and/or revenue in textiles, apparel, bedding and mattresses, and related applications across the globe.
-In general, roadblocks with regard to product/technology development are industry challenges that are being addressed by market leaders. R&D at four stages of product development— PCM, MPCM, MPCM-component, and end product on-site—will need high levels of investments.
