Thermal Ceramics Market Insights
The global thermal ceramics market is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is mainly attributed to rising demand for thermal ceramics by the end-user industries such as manufacturing, mining & metal processing and chemical & petrochemical. Accordingly, properties of thermal ceramics such as robustness, corrosion resistance, low thermal expansion and superior temperature stability are likely to stimulate market growth.
Moreover, growing automotive and medical industries in the Asia-Pacific region coupled with increasing R&D expenditure by key players is also expected to augment growth over the coming years.
However, factors such as stringent environmental and safety regulations against the use of the product in various industries are projected to affect the profitability of the industry.
Thermal Ceramics Market: Type Insights
On the basis of type, the industry is segmented into Ceramic Fibers and Insulation Bricks. Ceramic fibers include vitreous alumina-silica, low bio-persistent and polycrystalline, and insulation bricks are segregated into acidic, neutral and basic refractory bricks. The market for ceramic fibers is expected to occupy the highest market share in terms of revenue owing to its properties such as low density, low thermal conductivity, superior temperature control, chemical stability, flexibility and light weightiness among others.
Furthermore, under the ceramic fibers segment, the bio persistent fibers are expected to deliver a healthy CAGR owing to their environment-friendly nature.
