Ceramic Fiber Market by Type (Refractory, Low Bio-persistence, Polycrystalline), End-product (Blanket, Module, Bulk, Board, Paper), and Application (Petrochemical, Iron & Steel, Aluminum, Ceramics, Power Generation) - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2019

The ceramic fiber market can be segmented into four major regions, which are North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW). Ceramic fiber finds usage based on end-user industries such as petrochemical, iron & steel, aluminum, ceramics, power generation, and others, with petrochemical being the major one

The ceramic fiber market is a stabilized market in the Asia-Pacific region which is projected to register a remarkable growth of more than 10.0% over the next five years, in terms of volume. The RoW region would be upcoming market, projected to capture more than 10.0% of the overall ceramic fiber market size (volume) by 2019.

Upcoming opportunities for the ceramic fiber players are the emerging economies in the Asia-Pacific region. This is because of the fact that China and India are developing at a faster rate and coming up with large scale commercial, residential, and industrial projects. This is fueling the demand of ceramic fiber in Asia-Pacific region.

The ceramic fiber market has been analyzed in terms of both volume (KT) and value ($Million) by region; North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW) and by type; refractory ceramic fiber (RCF), low bio-persistent and polycrystalline ceramic fiber. Ceramic fiber market is also analyzed by end products; bulk, blanket, board, paper, module, and textile & others and for end-use industries, petrochemical, iron & steel, aluminum, power generation, ceramics, and other end-use industries.

For this report, various secondary sources, such as, directories, technical handbooks, company annual reports, industry association publications, chemical magazine articles, world economic outlook, trade websites, and databases have been referred to identify and collect information useful for this extensive commercial study of the ceramic fiber market. The primary sources-experts from related industries and suppliers-have been interviewed to obtain and verify critical information as well as to assess future prospects and market estimations.

This report analyzes various marketing trends and establishes the most effective growth strategy in the market. It identifies market dynamics such as drivers, restraints, opportunities, burning issues, and winning imperatives.
