The global ceramic fiber market is projected to register a CAGR of 9.4% for the forecast period to reach USD 5.00 Billion by 2020. In this study, 2014 has been considered as the base year, and 2015–2020 as forecast years for estimating the market size. The global ceramic fiber market is segmented on the basis of type, end product, end-use industry, and region.

Both, top-down and bottom-up approaches have been used to estimate and validate the market size of ceramic fibers. Data have been gathered through secondary as well as primary research. Secondary research involves study of free and paid information available over the Internet. Primary research involves collecting and verifying information from key opinion leaders (KOLs) through telephonic interviews and mails. KOLs are industry experts representing manufacturers, distributors, raw material suppliers, technology suppliers, and independent consultants.

For this report, various secondary sources, such as, directories, technical handbooks, company annual reports, industry association publications, chemical magazine articles, world economic outlook, trade websites, and databases have been referred to identify and collect information useful for this extensive commercial study of the ceramic fiber market. The primary sources experts from related industries and suppliers have been interviewed to obtain and verify critical information as well as to assess future prospects and market estimations.

Ceramic Fibers Market

The ceramic fiber ecosystem comprises sourcing of silicon dioxide (SiO2) and aluminum oxide (Al2O3), the basic raw materials used for ceramic fiber production. The basic ceramic fiber which is manufactured by the above-mentioned raw materials is bulk from which other products are being made. So, bulk is the basic raw material for manufacturing other ceramic fiber products manufactured by players such as Morgan Thermal Ceramics (U.K.) and Unifrax Corp. (U.S.). Different varieties of ceramic fiber end products are made from bulk, which include ceramic fiber board, module, paper, and other textile-related products. The requirement of these products depends on their usage and conditions in which they have to operate, such as optimum temperature, robustness, rigidness, availability of space and depending on the kind of ceramic fiber required, RCF, bio soluble fiber, and polycrystalline. The products are distributed through various channels to end users.

The target audience of the report can be as follows:

  • Ceramic fiber manufacturers

The ceramic fiber market is projected to reach USD 5.00 Billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 9.4% between 2015 and 2020. Ceramic fibers have gained acceptance due to thier properties, such as high temperature resistance, superior tensile strength, energy efficient, and better flexibility.

The ceramic fiber market is analyzed with respect to types, end products, and end-use industries. Refractory ceramic fiber (RCF), low bio-persistent ceramic fiber, and polycrystalline ceramic fiber are the main three types of ceramic fiber types. RCF accounted for the largest market share followed by low bio-persistent and polycrystalline ceramic fiber. Stringent regulations and increasing environmental awareness are driving the market for low bio-persistent and polycrystalline ceramic fiber in Europe and North America owing to the carcinogenic nature of RCF. However in Asia-Pacific, there are no such strict regulations, the factor which is driving the RCF market in the region.

Petrochemical, iron & steel, aluminum, ceramic, and power generation are the major end-use industries of ceramic fibers. Petrochemical is the largest end-use industry for ceramic fibers. The demand for ceramic fibers in the petrochemical industry is driven by the increasing demand of its end products such as polymers and elastomers in India and China. The evolution of shale gas & coal gasification technology in North America is also boosting the use of ceramic fibers in the petrochemical industry.

RCF dominated the ceramic fiber market with Asia-Pacific as the largest market in 2014 and the trend is expected to remain same during the forecast period. Europe is the leading market for low bio-persistent and polycrystalline ceramic fibers owing to the carcinogenic nature of RCF and stringent regulatory framework in the region. The ceramic fiber market has also been analysed by end products. Bulk, blanket, paper, board, and module are the major end products studied.

Asia-Pacific, being the global manufacturing hub of the world, is the largest market for ceramic fibers. Economies such as China and India and growing activities in the construction, energy, industrial, and automotive sectors provide a further push to ceramic fiber market. Lower cost of production has provided a great opportunity for the global players to place them in the Asia-Pacific region, especially, in the developing nations such as China and India.
