The Global Advanced Ceramics Market expected to record a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2020 with its market worth expected to reach USD 9.5 billion by 2020. Advanced Ceramics are substances that are used in the development and manufacture of ceramic materials that exhibit special properties. Advanced Ceramics owing to their properties such as high-temperature stability, corrosion-resistance, lightweight, low thermal expansion, and due to their unique electrical properties ranging from insulators to semiconductors to highly conductive materials, advanced ceramics are used in a wide range of end user industries such as electrical & electronics, medical & bio-medical, transportation, industrial machinery, environmental, chemical, defense & security, and others.
In the Advanced Ceramics market report, we have taken into the following major end-user sectors into consideration, Medical field, Transportation, electronic sector, Defense & Security, Chemical , industrial machinery and few other sectors. The electronics market is one of the largest end-user industries of Advanced Ceramics and the trend is expected to continue in the near future. Medical products are significant consumers of advanced ceramics market due to its increasing use in manufacturing joint implants and in-dental procedures and also the growing demand for high pressure and high temperature environment has further augmented the growth of the advanced ceramics market. Also, rise in defense manufacturing in emerging economies including India and China has played a major role in growth of the market.
This market is driven by a number of factors, such as the growing demand from various applications, increased usage as an alternative to metals and plastics and also these advanced ceramics are environment friendly and reliable for use. However, this market faces certain drawbacks, such as slower adoption in new applications which will affect the Advanced Ceramics market and also there are recyclability and reparability issues related to Advanced Ceramics. These materials are costlier when compared to metals and alloys and high cost association of these advanced ceramics are the factors that may act as a roadblock to the growth of the market.
Advanced Ceramics market has been divided according to the material type into Alumina, Titanate, Zirconia, Silicon carbide, Aluminium nitride, Silicon Nitride, Magnesium Silicate, Pyrolytic boron nitride. They are also divided on the basis of product type, such as Monolithic ceramics, ceramic matrix composites, ceramic coatings where Monolithic ceramics are the most dominant ceramics on account of their enhanced performance characteristics including high dimensional stability, high strength, durability, flexibility and toughness. Ceramic matrix composites are extensively used in automobile and industrial machinery applications. In addition, they are also used in various space applications including heat resistant tiles and in manufacturing of transport equipment for space shuttles.
The market has also been geographically segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, and South America. In terms of consumption, Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing market for advanced ceramics accounting for a major share of about 40% of the total market, where China and India being the fastest growing market followed by Japan, South Korea where consumption is growing steadily. The main driving factor of the market in China is due to population growth and government initiatives to promote industrial growth. Also, increase in defense manufacturing and increasing demand for automobiles in emerging economies are the major driving factors for the growth of advanced ceramics in Asia Pacific region. U.S. and China are major countries for advanced ceramics consumption, followed by Germany, France, Japan, and U.K. which are other key markets for advanced ceramics consumption.
There is an increasing demand of advanced ceramics from various end user industries and used in several new applications such as photovoltaic modules, wind turbines and pollution control and also due to the growth of nano technology and due to recovery of infrastructure sectors, there is a constant increase in the demand for Advanced Ceramics which may result in higher growth rates leading to increase in the Advanced Ceramics manufacturers. Some of the major companies dominating this market for its products, services, and continuous product developments are Applied Ceramics Inc., COI Ceramics Inc., Ceradyne, Inc., CeramTec AG, Vesuvius, Corning Inc., Kyocera Corp., Materion Corporation, and Saint-Gobain Ceramic Materials.
