The global thermal ceramics market reached a value of US$ 4.3 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 5.7 Billion by 2027, exhibiting at a CAGR of 4.7% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
Thermal ceramics, also known as ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTCs), are refractory materials that provide durability at over 2000 degrees Celsius. They are used to reduce energy consumption, emissions, and operating costs in high-temperature industrial processing of metals, cement, ceramics, glass, and petrochemicals. Their refractory quality and electrical conductivity make them ideal for managing molten aluminum. Besides this, as they can refract thermal energy and resist corrosion, thermal ceramics are gaining widespread adoption for insulation of nuclear water systems across the globe.
Thermal Ceramics Market Trends:
Due to their high-temperature resistance, thermal ceramics are extensively utilized in the aerospace industry to meet stringent performance, temperature, and weight specifications of spacecraft. This, in confluence with the increasing funding by governments of various countries in space exploration, represents one of the key factors bolstering the market growth. Moreover, the escalating use of hypersonic missiles and weapons on account of the rising geopolitical tensions and investments in the defense sector is influencing the market positively. Apart from this, thermal ceramics are employed in the automotive industry to protect the surface and inner layer of vehicles from friction and generated plasma. This, along with the boosting sales of passenger vehicles on account of rapid urbanization and inflating income levels, is contributing to market growth. It can also be attributed to the expanding application of off-the-road vehicles in the construction industry. Furthermore, thermal ceramics provide lightweight fire insulation in cruise ships, super-yachts, high-speed ferries, offshore platforms, and floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels. Therefore, the emerging need for energy and the declining onshore oil exploration activities are propelling their use in deep-water oil extraction, especially in remote locations.
