The global ceramic tube market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.52%, from 2017 to 2022, to reach a projected USD 993.3 Million by 2022. The growth will be mainly driven by an increase in the demand for power equipment such as vacuum interrupters and capacitors.

The report segments the ceramic tube market, on the basis of material type, into alumina, zirconia, and others, which includes silicates, aluminum titanate, aluminum nitride, silicon carbide, and boron nitride. The alumina ceramic tube segment led the ceramic tubes market, by material type, and is used in electrical and thermal insulation applications such as thermocouples, vacuum interrupters, spark plugs, and capacitors. The alumina tube segment is also the fastest growing market due to the comparatively low-cost and high durability of the tubes. The ceramic tube market, by material type, has also been segmented into metallized and non-metallized. Metallized ceramics are ones that are brazed or joined with metal for strengthening the ceramic tube and are used mainly in electrical power equipment. Non-metalized ceramic tubes are not brazed with metal or any other material.

The global ceramic tube market, by application, is segmented into electronic and electrical, medical and healthcare, and other, which includes spark plugs. Electronic and electrical applications include vacuum interrupters, power grid tubes, insulators, and capacitors. The growing demand for renewable energy as well the increasing demand for power transmission and distribution equipment is driving the electronic and electrical segment. The medical and healthcare application segment includes ceramic tubes used in X-ray tubes for insulation while the others segment includes spark plugs where ceramic tubes are used as insulating envelopes.

The report further segments the electronic and electrical applications segment into the end-use of vacuum interrupters in various power equipment. The vacuum interrupter segment has been segmented, by end-use, into circuit breakers, contactors, re-closers, load break switches, and tap changers. The market for ceramic tube for vacuum interrupter is mainly driven by the growing demand for power equipment, especially in countries such as China, India, and the U.S. The re-closers and circuit breakers markets are expected to grow at a relatively high CAGR from 2017 to 2022. The stringent environmental norms for SF6 -based circuit breakers is one of the primary factors that are expected to drive the vacuum interrupter-based circuit breakers market, from 2017 to 2022.

The market in Asia-Pacific is the largest, by size, and is estimated to grow at the highest rate due to rapid demand for power transmission and distribution equipment in China. Increased investments in the manufacturing sector combined with power generation infrastructure in China, India, and other fast-growing emerging economies in the region, such as Indonesia, has led to a surge in the demand for vacuum interrupters, capacitors, and insulators, thus, driving the ceramic tube market in the region. Increased investments in the manufacturing of automotive parts such as spark plugs in China, Japan, and India is further expected to drive the market for ceramic tubes.

Ceramic Tube Market

The major factor restraining the growth of the ceramic tube market is the rising energy costs associated with the manufacture of ceramic tubes. The ceramic industry is an energy-intensive industry and energy costs contribute to nearly a third of the manufacturing costs. A majority of the ceramic tube manufacturers rely on natural gas as the main energy source and the high volatility in natural gas prices has become a major restraining factor affecting the growth of the ceramic tube market.

The market is dominated by a few international players that hold a major share of the global ceramic tube market. The major suppliers of ceramic tubes include Kyocera Corporation (Japan), CeramTec GmbH (Germany), CoorsTek, Inc. (U.S.), Morgan Advanced Materials (U.K.), and Carborundum Universal, Ltd. (India).
