Global Thermal Ceramics Market Highlights over 2020-2029

The global thermal ceramics market is estimated to garner a significant CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2021–2029. The growth of the market can be attributed to the properties, such as, thermal resistance ability to refract thermal energy, and neutron absorption capacity, along with resistance to corrosion. Owing to these properties, there is an increased demand for thermal ceramics in various applications, including, layering on hypersonic air vehicles, holding molten metals, military applications, and others, which is estimated to boost the market growth. Increasing mining and metallurgy activities owing to the rising demand for steel and other metals, backed by the increasing construction activities around the world, is foreseen to drive the market growth. In fact, more than USD 500 billion is spent annually on mining activities by major mining companies, as of 2020. Moreover, increasing number of power plants to fulfill the need of the growing global population, along with the adoption of nuclear energy, with more than 50 nuclear power plants under construction around the globe in 2019, is estimated to promote the market growth.


The global thermal ceramic market is segmented by application into mining & metal processing, petrochemical, cement, nuclear power plants, and others out of which, the mining & metal processing segment is anticipated to witness the highest growth in the market during the forecast period on account of increasing application of metals in various end-user industries, including, construction, automotive, chemical, and others. Use of thermal ceramics for handling molten metal and insulating instruments, is estimated to boost the growth of the segment.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth


The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favourable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labour as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
