Report ID: GMI3604
Global Ceramic Textiles Market is likely to grow with significant gains during the forecast period owing to rising product demand for heat resistant applications in aerospace and other general manufacturing industries. High ceramic textile demand in the above-mentioned industries is due to its non-brittle refractory characteristics which makes it suitable for high temperature working environments.
Ceramic textile has been gaining prominence as a high performance industrial fabric since past few years. This can be attributed to its excellent insulation properties. Increasing demand for heat resistant and electrical resistive fabrics in factories and workshops in manufacturing plants will be driving product demand over the forecast timeframe. Aerospace industry is one major end-user of ceramic textiles market, which will be fueling product demand in various applications such as vital components in aircrafts and space shuttles. These require light weight yet high performance textiles to withstand extreme temperature and atmospheric conditions.
Aerospace sector is a growing sector in many Asian countries and is a prime contributor in GDP, thus governments are funding their respective aerospace organizations for achieving technological excellence. Ceramic textile is new to the heat resistant fabrics market, thus, may face challenges in initial penetration and might be prone to threat of substitution from other heat resistant textile such as silica and other coated fabrics.
Ceramic textiles market can be segmented based on product form such as ropes, cloth, tapes, braids and sleeves. It is used as structural reinforcements in polymer and metal composites thus, imparting excellent temperature resistance in load-bearing applications. Cloth is used in welding curtains & blankets and exhaust hood curtains. These have superior resistance to corrosive attack and resist breakdown from mechanical stress & vibration.
Ceramic textiles market is categorized based on fiber type into refractory ceramic fiber (RCF), low bio-persistent and polycrystalline. Low bio-persistent ceramic textile has come up as a disruptive technology in textile market. Bio ceramic textile are efficient in protection from FIR (Far Infrared Rays) and UV rays, hence find extensive application in blankets, casual clothes and sportswear. RCF is the most commonly used type of ceramic textile and is likely to grow with prominent growth during the forecast timespan. RCF has excellent insulation and mechanical shock resistance, which makes it suitable for applications in power generation plants and oil & gas refineries.
As per end-users, ceramic textile market is classified into aerospace & defense, power generation, general manufacturing, packaging, transportation and others. The product is widely used in these end-user industries across boiler gaskets, IR (Infrared Rays) diffusers, pipe hanger insulation, wrapping materials, furnace zone separators, fuel line insulation and high pressure flange covers. Industries where there is high risk of fire and related chemical hazards have high demand for lightweight and high temperature resistant fabrics. Ceramic textile is ideal for these applications and work environments in manufacturing plants. Hence, these industries will be accelerating product demand from 2019 to 2025.
Asia Pacific led the global ceramic textiles market in 2018 in terms of volume and value. The region is likely to grow with prominent gains during the forecast period owing to the increasing industrialization in countries including India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea and China. Additionally, defense sector has been growing consistently in Asian countries on account of increased government spending in each of the Asian nations. This will be positively influencing product demand in ballistic applications and defense aircrafts over the forecast duration.
