The Global Thermal Ceramics Market was valued at USD xx million in 2017 and is estimated to reach USD xx million by 2025, with a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2025.
Thermal Ceramics are used as insulation materials, because of their ability to withstand high temperatures, and are used for lining furnaces and kilns. Thermal Ceramics products often exist in the form of blankets, boards, felts, bulk fibers, vacuum-formed or cast shapes, paper, and textiles. Their lightweight, thermal-shock resistance, and strength make them useful in many industries. Modern technologies enable the production of highly porous foam ceramics, intended for use as energy-efficient thermal insulation in blast furnaces. These thermal insulation products significantly reduce energy consumption and emissions in a va-riety of high-temperature processing applications.
The use of thermal ceramic products or ceramic wool for insulation purposes has become very popular nowadays. Almost all companies today demand these products because they are mainly used to control heat. Ceramic fiber products widely used by various businesses that involve operations and manufacturing processes that generate or use high tempera-tures. Thermal ceramics have various useful features such as low thermal conductivity, low heat storage, high tensile strength, thermal shock resistance, and sound absorption. These properties of thermal ceramics yield various applications especially in metal & petrochemi-cal industries and other industries such as process heaters, heat treating furnaces, ethylene furnaces, all furnace linings requiring a protective barrier. Thermal ceramics are easy to install, contains no binder, contains no asbestos, no curing on dry out time required which makes them preferable over other alternatives.
Companies operating in thermal ceramic market are launching innovative products. In 2017, Unifrax launched their latest low bio-persistent thermal insulation using enhanced fi-berization techniques combined with new proprietary processing technology to provide cus-tomers with improved thermal and physical characteristics.
Thermal Ceramics Market is segmented by Type, Temperature Range, and by the applica-tion. By type, thermal ceramics market is segmented into insulation bricks and ceramic fi-ber. The Ceramic fiber segment consists of ceramic blanket, cloth, rope, paper, board, etc. They are used in fire doors, furnace insulation, special heat-resistant containers and for heating pipes, for situations with direct exposure to flames, as gaskets to hold or keep out high temperatures. Ceramic fiber segment dominated the market, and it is expected to grow at the fastest rate. Insulation bricks are mainly used in glass industries, ceramics in-dustries, electrolytic aluminum industries, iron & steel industries, non-ferrous metals indus-tries, and power generation industries.
By temperature range, thermal ceramics market is segmented into 600-1000 celsius, 1000-1400 celsius, 1400-1600 celsius, and above 1600 celsius. Thermal ceramics used for 1000-1400 celsius temperature range accounted for significant market share.
By application, thermal ceramics market is segmented into mining & metal processing, chemical & petrochemical, manufacturing, power generation, and others. Mining & metal processing segment accounted for major market share due to extensive use in both ferrous & non-ferrous metal processing. In metal industry, they can be used for burner blocks, co-vers, curtains, emission control, expansion joints, furnace linings, gaskets, hot gas filtration, insulation, mold linings, and nozzle shrouds. In chemical & petrochemical, they are used for acoustical insulation, boilers, catalyst recovery, fire protection, ground flares, hot gas filtra-tion, personnel/equipment protection, seals, insulation, etc. In manufacturing, they are fre-quently used in automotive & aerospace industry for electric car battery insulation, AGM battery separators, lib battery fire protection, exhaust system insulation, friction materials, fuel filtration, gaskets, start-stop batteries, airbag filtration, aircraft appliance insulation, aircraft heat shields, cable wraps, cryogenic insulation, and electronics fire protection. Manufacturing segment is expected to witness the fastest growth due to the automotive in-dustry, especially electric cars. In power generation, they are used for thermal oxidizers, waste incineration, boilers, personnel/equipment protection, polysilicon reactors, etc.
