Ceramic Fiber Market Overview


Ceramic fiber has a low thermal conductivity and a high temperature resistance. Additionally, it is light in weight and has a low thermal inertia. As a result, ceramic fiber dissipates heat more efficiently and possesses remarkable energy-saving properties. Ceramic fiber products are used as insulation materials in high-temperature applications to help contain heat and conserve energy. The ceramic fiber market is growing primarily as a result of its increasing use in the refining and petrochemical industries, as well as in the power generation industry. The ceramic fiber market is influenced by the growing population, rising standard of living, consumer awareness of the importance of environmentally friendly products, consumers' high spending power on technologically advanced products, and the increasing demand for lightweight products.


The ceramic fiber market is moderately affected by disruptions in the global supply chain and constraints in the refining and petrochemicals industries, which account for the lion's share of ceramic fiber consumption. The Covid-19 outbreak has had a mild effect on business and consumer sentiment in key global markets, resulting in significant declines in the refining & petrochemical and power generation sectors.


Key Players


Some of the manufacturers operating in the ceramic fiber market are Morgan Advanced Materials (UK), Unifrax (US), LUYANG ENERGY-SAVING MATERIALS CO., LTD.  (China), IBIDEN (Japan), HarbisonWalker International (US), Isolite Insulating Products Co., Ltd. (Japan), NUTEC (Mexico), Rath-Group (US), FibreCast, Inc. (US), Pyrotek (US), and CeramSource, Inc., (US).

Recent Development



  • February 2022: Carbon and Roboze, manufacturers of industrial 3D printers, each launched a new additive manufacturing material for use with their respective 3D printing systems. Carbon's new EPX 86FR photopolymer resin combines flame retardancy, functional toughness, high strength, and long-term stability in a single material. Designed for both functional prototypes and end-use parts, the resin is optimal for applications requiring self-extinguishing properties. This category includes automotive components such as housings, brackets, and connectors.

  • February 2022: Continuous Composites (Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, United States) has developed a method for continuous fiber 3D printing (CF3D) that combines dry, continuous fiber with UV snap-cured thermoset resins. The resulting system generates true composite components within the context of additive manufacturing (AM). Additional unusual matrix solutions have been developed by Continuous Composites and Arkema/Sartomer. Carbon-ceramic, carbon-carbon, and ceramic-ceramic composites will be additively manufactured using these new material combinations.
