Global Advanced Ceramics Market Overview
Advanced Ceramics, also known as Technical Ceramics or Engineered Ceramics, are specialized ceramics that stand out due to high resistance to corrosion, erosion and wear, electrical and thermal insulation at high temperatures and high heat resistance. Many industries including chemical, industrial, medical, electronic, electrical engineering, electric heating and sanitary rely on advanced ceramics to solve their difficult problems.
The global advanced ceramics market by volume accounted for USD XX million in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% to reach USD XX million in 2025.
Global Advanced Ceramics Market - Market Dynamics
The increasing use of advanced ceramics in various end-user industries such as medical, electronic and electrical and machinery industries is the major driver of the advanced ceramics market. The advanced ceramics are being adopted at a higher rate as an alternative to metals and plastics, due to the growing awareness regarding their eco-friendly benefits such as biodegradability, durability, and high tensile strength. For instance, in June 2018, Morgan Advanced Materials has launched a new low-bio persistent fiber Superwool® XTRA, which provides high-temperature tolerance, improved pollutant resistance and a chemical formulation that meets the stringent Environmental Health & Safety requirements. Moreover, the technological advancements in enhancing the properties of the ceramics are boosting the market growth.
However, the huge capital investments required, regulatory constraints, and environmental issues caused by the ceramics might hamper the market potential for technical ceramics market. Moreover, the availability of materials such as metal alloys and a few carbon-enhanced plastics which are a cheaper alternative when compared to the advanced ceramics hinders the growth of the market.
The extensive use of coated machinery components has been shifting the preference of the consumers to advanced coatings, and the technological advancements in the deposition processes are expected to open new market opportunities.
