Ceramic Textile Market by Fiber Type (RCF, Low Bio-Persistent, and Polycrystalline), Form (Cloth, Ropes, Tapes, Sleeving, and Braids), End-Use Industry (Industrial and Transportation), and Region - Global Forecast to 2021
“The ceramic textile market is projected to register a CAGR of 9.94%, by value during the forecast period” The global ceramic textile market size was USD 74.5 million in 2015 and is projected to register a CAGR of 9.94% in terms of value, between 2016 and 2021. Properties of ceramics to contaminate heat in high temperature applications would drive the market. A large number of emerging application industries, such as aerospace and alternate energy, would boost the market. The major restraint for the ceramic textiles market is the carcinogenic nature of refractory ceramic fiber (RCF) which is one of the major types of ceramic fiber. This is affecting the growth of the RCF market mainly in Europe and North America, where regulations are stringent. “Braids to register the highest growth between 2016 and 2021” The characteristics of braids such as maximum resistance to mechanical abuse, superior strength, minimal unraveling would trigger the growth of the segment. “Ceramic cloth to be the largest market for ceramic textiles” Properties of ceramic cloth such as insulation, good performance at low temperatures, and heat insulation contribute to its large market size. It has wide applications such as welding foundry works, aluminum and steel mills, boiler insulation and seal, shipyards, refineries, power plants, and chemical plants. “Asia-Pacific: The largest and fastest-growing market for ceramic textiles” Asia-Pacific is the largest and fastest-growing market for ceramic textiles. Infrastructural growth in Asia-Pacific and increasing industrialization are responsible for the same. Most of the emerging economies are also situated in this region. Moreover, large transportation projects are increasing in this region to cater the needs of the growing population.
