Cordierite Market

DENSO Corporation (Japan) and Kyocera Corporation (Japan) are Leading Players in the Cordierite Market

The cordierite market is projected to reach USD 3.2 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 5.1% from USD 2.5 billion in 2023. Cordierite is a commonly used material in automotive parts due to its excellent thermal properties and low thermal expansion coefficient. It is predominantly used in catalytic converters and diesel particulate filters (DPF) in the automotive industry. Cordierite offers several advantages that contribute to its market growth. It has excellent thermal stability, a low thermal expansion coefficient, and high resistance to thermal shock. These properties make it ideal for applications requiring high-temperature resistance, such as catalytic converters and DPFs. In addition, cordierite is cost-effective compared to alternative materials, which further drives its adoption in the market.

The key players in the cordierite market include DENSO Corporation (Japan), Kyocera Corporation (Japan), Corning Inc. (US), TOTO Ltd. (Japan), NGK Insulators (Japan), Vesuvius Plc (UK), Elementis Plc (UK), CoorsTek (US), Unifrax (US), and CeramTec (Germany), among others. These companies are strong in their home regions and explore geographic diversification alternatives to grow their businesses. They focus on increasing their market shares through acquisitions, expansions, and partnerships.
