The ceramic fiber market is projected to register a CAGR of 8.7% (between 2014 & 2019) with market size estimated at 1,983 KRT by 2019. Asia-Pacific region, with its reviving economy and rapidly expanding commercial and industrial base is projected to experience the highest growth in demand between 2014 and 2019, followed by the Rest of the World (RoW) region.

The major factors driving the market growth are the high efficiency of the ceramic fiber, growth of end-use industries, and reduction in cost of production by deploying ceramic fiber in high temperature applications. The market is restrained due to carcinogenic nature of ceramic fiber, and its durability issues. The burning issue observed in the ceramic fiber market is changing scenario in the iron & steel industry of china, where large numbers of industries are inefficient and lack global competitiveness. Hence, the government is trying to reduce the inefficient steel production which has an indirect effect on the ceramic fiber industry as iron & steel industry is one of the key end users for the ceramic fiber products.

The ceramic fiber market has been analyzed in terms of both volume (KT) and value ($Million) by region; North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW) and by type; refractory ceramic fiber (RCF), low bio-persistent and polycrystalline ceramic fiber. Ceramic fiber market is also analyzed by end products; bulk, blanket, board, paper, module, and textile & others and for end-use industries, petrochemical, iron & steel, aluminum, power generation, ceramics, and other end-use industries.

The ceramic fiber market size, by volume, is projected to register a CAGR of 8.7% in the next five years to reach 1,983 KT by 2019. Ceramic fiber has gained acceptance due to its favorable properties, such as high temperature resistance, superior tensile strength, high energy efficiency, and better flexibility when compared to other insulating materials. Thus, these fibers effectively address the high temperature insulation requirements in various industries, such as petrochemical, and iron & steel. The report covers the ceramic fiber market and its trends in North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW). The ceramic fiber market size in terms of value is projected to reach $4.8 billion by 2019, at a CAGR of 10.3% between 2014 & 2019.

The ceramic fiber market is analyzed with respect to types, end products and end-use industries. The ceramic fiber types are refractory ceramic fiber (RCF), low bio-persistent ceramic fiber, and polycrystalline ceramic fiber. Ceramic fiber end products include bulk, blanket, board, module paper, textiles, and others. End-use industries included are petrochemical, iron & steel, aluminum, ceramics, power generation, and other end-use industries (including aerospace, automotive, glass, fire protection, and powder metallurgy). Petrochemical is the major consumer of ceramic fiber, a trend which is anticipated to continue in future. Blanket ceramic fiber accounts for the majority of usage among various end products of ceramic fiber.

Asia-Pacific is the largest market for ceramic fiber, with the presence of emerging economies such as China and India, and growing activities in the construction, energy, industrial and automotive sector. Lower cost of production has provided a great opportunity for the global players to set up their manufacturing facility in the Asia-Pacific region, especially, in the developing nations such as China and India.
