The thermal ceramics market is estimated to be USD 3.36 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 5.02 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 8.4% from 2018 to 2023. The high demand for thermal ceramics in various end-use industries, such as chemical & petrochemical, mining & metal processing, and manufacturing, are expected to drive the thermal ceramic market.

Based on type, the thermal ceramics market has been segmented into ceramic fibers and insulation bricks. The ceramic fibers segment is estimated to lead the market and is projected to grow at a higher rate than the insulation bricks segment during the forecast period. Ceramic fibers have an exceptionally low thermal conductivity, which makes them an energy-saving material. Additionally, they have low density, low thermal inertia, excellent temperature control inside the insulating surface, no preheat requirement, chemical stability, and are flexible, light in weight, and convenient to install. These properties have led to their growing preference and usage over other insulation products.

Based on temperature range, the thermal ceramics market has been segmented into 650 to 1,000‘γC, 1,000 to 1,400‘γC, and 1,400 to 1,6000C. The 1,000 to 1,400‘γC segment is estimated to be the largest temperature range segment of the market and is also projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. The products operating in this range are used in an arena of applications, including high temperature filtration, refractory back-up for aluminum melting and holding furnaces, aluminum furnace tap-out plug cover and parting agent, aluminum distributor pan linings, gaskets for any high temperature application, back up lining for metal troughs, process heaters, ceramic kilns, annealing furnaces, heat treating furnaces, thermal oxidizers, high temperature gaskets and seals, and heat shields. Refractory ceramic fibers, low bio-persistent alkaline earth silicate fibers, and polycrystalline fibers are used for this temperature range.

Mining & metal processing is the largest end-use industry segment of the thermal ceramics market due to the huge demand for thermal ceramics in the production and processing of metals. The large production of metals has resulted in the high demand for thermal ceramics in kilns, furnaces, and other high-temperature insulation applications. Manufacturing is the fastest-growing end-use industry segment of the thermal ceramic market. This segment includes high growth industries, such as cement, glass, refractory, ceramic, transportation, and electronics & electrical.

Thermal Ceramics Market

The thermal ceramics market has been studied for Asia Pacific (APAC), North America, Europe, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. APAC is the largest and the fastest-growing market for thermal ceramics. The high growth of the chemical industry has led to increased investments in chemical manufacturing units in this region. APAC countries, such as China and India, are also at the forefront of the ongoing industrial revolution. The chemical & petrochemical end-use industry is growing in the region because of the increase in demand for chemicals in various applications. Countries such as India, Indonesia, and Thailand are investing in new projects to decrease chemical imports as well as fulfill domestic demands, which will, in turn, drive the chemical industry in APAC. The growth of this industry drives the demand for thermal ceramics in thermal insulation applications. These factors, therefore, provide growth opportunities to the thermal ceramics market.

The key factor restraining the growth of the thermal ceramics market is the carcinogenic nature of ceramic fibers. Many countries have set stringent regulations on the use of ceramic fibers and workplace exposure to materials, such as alumina and silica.

Companies such as Morgan Thermal Ceramics (UK), Unifrax (US), IBIDEN (Japan), Isolite Insulating Products (Japan), Luyang Energy-Saving Materials (China), RHI Magnesita (Austria), Rath (US), Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (Japan), 3M (US), and YESO Insulating Products (China), have adopted various developmental strategies, such as new product launches, mergers & acquisitions, agreements, and investments & expansions to enhance their foothold in the market.
