Thermal Ceramics Market Outlook - 2027

The global thermal ceramics market was valued at $3.8 billion in 2019, and is anticipated to generate $5.5 billion by 2027. The market is projected to experience growth at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2020 to 2027

Thermal ceramics are ceramics that offer thermal shock resistance, thermal insulation, high tolerance toward high temperature, and thermal expansion. The thermal ceramics market is positively impacted by infrastructural development activities in Asia-Pacific and increased demand from the solar power generation industry. The market growth is restrained by the carcinogenic nature of the product as well as environmental concerns regarding refractories. 

Large-scale applications of the product in process heaters, ceramic kilns, and high-temperature filtration products are expected to foster the business growth over the forecast timeline. In addition, thermal ceramic is used in several industries due to its lightweight, low-heat conduction features, enhanced flexibility, and wide temperature range. Apparently, the product also finds extensive applications in glass, petrochemical, aluminum, and ceramics.


The market is segmented on the basis of type and end-use industry. By type, the market is divided into insulation bricks and ceramic fabrics. Similarly, for end-use industry, it is classified into mining & metal processing, chemicals & petrochemicals, construction, manufacturing, power generation, aerospace, and others (maritime & land transport). Region-wise, the thermal ceramics market analysis is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

The key players operating in the market are CeramTec, Dyson Technical Ceramics, FibreCast Inc., Ibiden Co., Ltd., Isolite Insulating Products Co., Ltd., Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Morgan Advanced Materials, RHI Magnesita, the 3M Company, and Unifrax. The players in the market have adopted several strategies, such as product launch and business expansion, to sustain the market competition. The market players are also investing largely into R&D activities, owing to increase in population that directly escalates the demand for energy.

Analyst Review

The thermal ceramics market is considered to grow moderately during the forecast period. This is attributed to the rise in demand for thermal ceramics in solar power energy generation for increasing efficiency and rising infrastructure activities & steel production in Asia-Pacific. However, the market has several constraints such as carcinogenic nature of ceramic fibers and growing environmental concerns regarding the refractories. The industry has great potential for growth in low bio-persistent materials and recycling reforms in refractories. Moreover, countries, such as India, Indonesia, and Thailand, are investing in new projects to decrease chemical imports as well as fulfill domestic demands. This is anticipated to drive the chemical industry in APAC. Furthermore, the growth of this industry drives the demand for thermal ceramics in thermal insulation applications.
