The report covers the major ceramic fiber markets; their geographical trends, and forecasts. The global market is divided into three key products types; viz refractory ceramic fibers, low bio-persistent ceramic fibers, and polycrystalline ceramic fiber. The report studies these ceramic fibers with respect to the key players, products, raw materials, and geographical trends of these markets. The global market is further studied from the applications’ perspective. The major on goings in the global industry such as winning imperatives of market players and major burning issues are also analyzed.

The report’s major focus is on studying the major market players in the industry that include Morgan Thermal Ceramics (U.K.), Shandong Luyang Share Co. Ltd. (China), Unifrax Corporation (U.S.), and Isolite Insulating Products Co. Ltd. (Japan). These companies are analyzed as per their market size, production capacities, products, and competitive development in the past few years along with future speculations. The study of prices of different ceramic fiber products for these companies form a part of analysis as well.

The ceramic fiber products have gained popularity owing to their properties such as energy efficiency, high temperature insulation, and low thermal conductivity. This has resulted in the increased applications of these products in diverse industries such as petrochemical, iron and steel, metal, and others. Consequently, it is vital to study this market according to its segments, opportunities, and growth prospective.

The report also analyzes the raw materials with respect to their cost, price, and importance in the ceramic fibers production. The policies and regulations related to the industry are also briefed in this report. The ceramic fiber production market share with reference to different geographies in different product categories including refractory ceramic fibers, low bio-persistent ceramic fibers, and polycrystalline ceramic fiber is analyzed.

The low bio-persistent ceramic fibers are gaining significant popularity owing to its non carcinogenic nature in contrast to the refractory ceramic fibers. As these fibers are the major categories produced globally. It is important to have an idea about the production split of these types in different regions. The report offers the percentage production ratio for refractory ceramic fibers and low bio-persistent ceramic fibers in diverse geographies which include Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America.

The major end-products for the ceramic fibers are blankets, bulk, board, modules, paper and textile, and others. The ceramic fiber manufacturers develop these end products in different formats based on densities, thickness, and other such specifications. These manufacturers have different production ratio within these products as well as are based on the industry usage and applications. This production ratio has also been well-defined; which gives an idea about the key end-products within the global market. It also provides a brief overview of these products in order to elaborate more about the application of ceramic fibers end products.

The report has taken into account the key competitive developments taken place for the key ceramic fiber companies; namely Morgan Thermal Ceramics, Shandong Luyang Share Co. Ltd., Unifrax Corporation, and Isolite Insulating Products Co. Ltd. The major competitive developments in which these companies are involved are acquisitions, product launches, and agreements and collaborations.

The major geographical regions that manufacture ceramic fibers are Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America. The report also details about these geographies as per volumes and value for ceramic fibers. This gives a clear picture about the dominating regions within the industry that is in a direct proportionality with the major players/manufacturers in the ceramic fiber industry.

Finally, the report also profiles the major players mentioned above with respect to their business, products, developments, financials, strategies, and other company specific information. This gives a brief idea about the areas wherein company is progressing and the expansion and penetration, the company has been able to gain within the ceramic fiber industry.

Ceramic fiber-based products are used in the high temperature insulation applications for process control and energy savings in diverse application including petrochemical, iron and steel, aluminum, ceramics, aerospace, and automotive. The research is focused mainly towards key commercial segments which are used globally.

The global market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.4% from 2011 to 2016. The growth is boosted with dominating refractory ceramic fibers market in Asia-Pacific; largely China. The high growth of bio low persistent ceramic fiber worldwide; specifically in Europe is placing the segment as an alternative for refractory ceramic fibers in the region.

The ceramic fibers market is forecasted for refractory ceramic fibers, bio low persistent ceramic fibers, and polycrystalline ceramic fiber segments. The refractory ceramic fiber is estimated to have the maximum revenue in 2011 with a share of approximately 71%; followed by low bio persistent ceramic fibers with 28% of production.
