One of the areas of research that continue to attract researchers worldwide is the development of thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) especially associated with the design of new ceramic topcoats with low thermal conductivity and a high coefficient of thermal expansion. The purpose of this chapter is to present the advances that have been achieved regarding ceramic topcoats in the last decades, making a historical journey that culminates with the contributions of this decade. The introduction of new crystalline structures and chemical compositions have opened the door to the real possibilities of replacing yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) to ensure the optimal thermomechanical-chemical properties required by TBCs. Future research directions associated with this topic are also provided.
