Scope of Global Ceramic Fiber Market Report:-

Ceramic fibers is composed of small-dimension filament or thread which is made of a ceramic material, such as alumina and silica, it is used in lightweight units for electrical, thermal, and sound insulation. It is also made of precursor fibers or a very thin tungsten-core wire. It is used in the fired heaters, fluid catalytic cracking units and also used in boilers. Primarily ceramic fiber products contain inorganic compounds, such as alumina (Al2O3) and silica (Si2O3) which are known as carcinogens. Among the three types of ceramic fibers, only RCF is carcinogenic, while AES wool and PCW do not contain any carcinogens.

The Covid-19 pandemic has overblown almost every sector in the world.

Aimplas, Industry Partnered with the Institute of Ceramic Technology (ITC)

On November 24th, 2021; Aimplas, the Plastics Technology Centre and the Institute of Ceramic Technology are developing the EROS Project. Under this project, new recycling processes will be developed to recover composite materials from the aeronautics and wind turbine sectors to repurpose into new products for the transport and ceramics industries. Mechanical and chemical recycling processes such as solvolysis and pyrolysis is performed to produce three new products: glass fiber, carbon fiber and glycols. Glass fiber will be applied in the form of ceramic supports, frits and glazes to reduce tile firing temperature. Inks will be manufactured with the glycols and carbon fiber will be used to make sustainable composites for the transport sector.

University of Minnesota Twin Cities Partnered with Kiel University in Germany

On November 17th, 2021; An international team of researchers from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities and Kiel University in Germany discovered a path that could lead to shape-shifting ceramic materials. This discovery could improve everything from medical devices to electronics. In this new research, the route to producing a reversible shape memory ceramic was anything but straightforward. The researchers first tried a recipe that has worked for the discovery of new metallic shape memory materials. That involves a delicate tuning of the distances between atoms by compositional changes, so that the two phases fit together well. They implemented this recipe, but, instead of improving the deformability of the ceramic, they observed that some specimens exploded when they passed through the phase transformation. 

Samba Step system Partnered with Augsburg University

On July 22nd, 2021; Two research organizations joined forces for projects on patch-based fiber layup: The Institute of Materials Resource Management (MRM) at Augsburg University (Augsburg, Germany), which focuses on ceramic fiber composites and data-driven computational materials science, and the faculty of mechanical engineering at Augsburg University of Applied Sciences (Augsburg, Germany). Augsburg University intended to use Cevotec’s (Munich, Germany) Samba Step system for field research of ceramic fiber composites. The system is based on fiber patch placement (FPP) technology. With the installation of a Samba Step system at MRM in Augsburg, Cevotec also continues the existing cooperation with Augsburg University of Applied Sciences.

The German Institutes of Textile and Fiber Research Denkendorf (DITF) Partnered with Saint-Gobain Ceramics (France).

On January 11th, 2021; The German Institutes of Textile and Fiber Research Denkendorf (DITF) partnered with Saint-Gobain Ceramics (France) on cooperation and joint development in the field of metal oxide ceramic fibers. The cooperation aims at jointly creating, ultimately, the production of metal oxide ceramic fibers in Europe. Metal oxide ceramic fibers are an essential component of fiber-reinforced ceramic materials which are increasingly important for a wide range of high-temperature applications. Fiber reinforcement produces a damage-tolerant ceramic material that is no longer brittle and is superior to monolithic ceramics, making it highly desirable from a technical and commercial point of view. Potential applications include components in industrial furnaces, charge carriers for temperature treatment and, in the high-tech sector, components in high efficiency stationary gas turbines, lower fuel consumption aircraft gas turbines and in space applications.

Global Ceramic Fiber Market Dynamics-

Ceramic fiber have low thermal conductivity and the ability to resist high temperatures. Additionally, it has low density and low thermal inertia. Thus, ceramic fiber waste low heat and has exceptional energy saving properties. It is used as insulation materials in application such as high-temperature for high heat containment and energy conservation. Ceramic fiber’s lightweight, thermal shock resistance, and strength make it useful in many end-use industries such as iron & steel, aluminum, petrochemical, ceramic, power generation, automotive, aerospace, and glass and many others. In many end-use industries, the process runs at 700–1,700°C, this temperature may range at which very limited materials can operate. In the high-temperature applications, the consumption of energy is the most important factor because it accounts for around 40% of the manufacturing cost. In order to lower this cost, companies are using ceramic fiber-based products due to their low thermal conductivity property. Additionally, rising need of less toxic solutions in the industrial sectors is another factor supplementing the growth of ceramic fiber market. The material used in industries such as petrochemical and power generation is highly toxic which may affect the health of workers and environment to overcome this ceramic fiber is used to reduce the toxicity in this industries. Furthermore, the increasing use of ceramic fiber in steel production plants to reheat furnace is further expected to boost the growth of ceramic fiber market.

On the other hand, stringent regulations pertaining to the use of carcinogenic materials and durability issue may hamper the market growth. The slandered procedure of producing ceramic fiber is to eject melted ceramics at high temperatures through a set of thin holes, approximately 3 mm in diameter. Ceramic fiber of less than 1 µm diameter is expected as toxic, and one thinner than 3 µm diameter can get absorbed into the lungs during the production process, which may cause major respiratory diseases and severe skin irritation. As equitable percentage of the fibers manufactured by the standard process have small diameters, which can be serious health hazards to those involved in their production and handling process.  In spite of that, the increasing demand from various applications in aerospace and alternative energy industry may offer an opportunity for the further growth of the market. Ceramic fiber products have high-temperature resistance, which is used in new applications, like aerospace and alternative energy such as fuel cells, solar, geothermal, biofuels, and waste incinerators. Ceramic fiber, is very strong and lightweight, which is slowly revolutionizing the aerospace industry, this may offer an opportunity of the ceramic fiber market growth.
