NEW YORK, June 29 /PRNewswire/—Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Advanced Phase Change Materials (PCM) Market: Global Forecast (2010-2015)

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0211061/Advanced-Phase-Change-Materials-PCM-Market-Global-Forecast-2010-2015.html

Report Description

The increasing demand for energy-saving and environment-friendly technology is driving the growth of the global phase change material (PCM) market. The global PCM market is expected to grow from $300.8 million in 2009 to $1,488.1 million in 2015, at an estimated CAGR of 31.7% from 2010 to 2015. The paraffin-based PCM market commands the largest share of the overall PCM market in terms of value, while salt hydrate-based PCMs lead the market in terms of volume.

Building and construction currently forms the largest application market due to the globally increasing demand for cooling buildings, which in turn has arisen due to the shift from heavy thermal mass design to lightweight architecture. While this application contributed 22% to the global PCM market revenues in 2009, textile applications are expected to have the highest CAGR of 38.5% from 2010 to 2015.
