Increasing adoption of ceramics in electronics manufacturing processes, is likely to aid in the market growth of Glass Ceramics.
Glass-ceramics exhibit almost zero thermal expansion and high toughness. In addition, they are resistant to thermal shock and have a high impact resistance owing to this, the market demand for glass ceramics product will increase.
COVID 19 pandemic is creating few hurdles for the Glass Ceramics market.
Glass Ceramics Market Segment Analysis - By Materials
Lithium holds the largest segment for the glass ceramics market, owing to the increasing use of lithium-based glass ceramics in households' cookware, bakeware, cooktops and Others. Glass-ceramics have been widely used in a wide range of fields in our daily life, owning to their challenging combination of properties to fulfil specific requirements. In construction field, one of the most popular glass-ceramic used in construction as the main crystalline phase. But one special ingredient is added to make glass ceramic: a special nucleating agent is added to the raw materials. After melting raw materials, the mixture acts exactly like glass - it is cooled very slowly to about 1,100 F. At that temperature, the nucleating agent enables the formation of crystal nuclei - the building blocks of crystals. Raising the temperature again encourages those crystal nuclei to grow and to rearrange themselves into a crystal structure. The material is then cooled to room temperature. The result is a material that looks and feels like glass, but is more durable and better able to handle extreme temperatures and temperature changes. Chemists can enhance these properties by changing the chemical mixture of the glass-ceramic, or by modifying the production process, such as the length of time the material is heated.
Glass Ceramics Market Segment Analysis - By Application
Cookware segment holds the largest share in the Glass Ceramics market. Glass, clay ceramic, and stoneware cookware are grouped together because they have similar cooking and handling characteristics. While most cooks are familiar with glass cookware, some may not be familiar with ceramic cookware. When ceramic is used for cookware, you can see it described as ceramic, and sometimes in a form of porcelain. Ceramic holds heat very well so lower temperatures are recommended. Some forms of ceramic cookware are glazed giving it a nearly non-stick surface. Ramekins, whether used for food prep, creme brulee, flan, or custard, are often ceramic because of their even heating characteristics. Most glass cookware is clear, so you can see through it to see how the food is cooking. The old Visions cookware from Corningware was amber and cranberry colored.
Glass Ceramics Market Segment Analysis - By Geography
APAC dominated the Glass Ceramics market with a share of more than xx%, followed by North America and Europe. This is attributable to increasing activities of building and construction in commercial, residential, and industrial sectors in various aforesaid regions. The basic ingredient of glass is silica or sand. Depending on how the product will be used, chemists and glass scientists add secondary chemicals like boron oxides, soda-lime, or aluminum oxides to produce glass with certain properties, e.g., clarity, resistance to scratches, resistance to thermal shock, or chemical resistance. Measured precisely and refined in a melting tank, the raw materials are heated to a temperature of about 2,400 F. At that point, the molten glass is about the consistency of honey, and is ready to be shaped into tubes, blocks, flat panels, fibers, or any of the dozens of other forms that glass is supplied in.
Glass Ceramics Market Drivers
Development of nano-phase ceramics
Nanophase materials, with their grain sizes or phase dimensions in the nanometer size regime, are now being produced by a wide variety of synthesis and processing methods. The interest in these new ultrafine-grained materials results primarily from the special nature of their various physical, chemical, and mechanical properties and the possibilities of controlling these properties during the synthesis and subsequent processing procedures. Since it is now becoming increasingly apparent that their properties can be engineered effectively during synthesis and processing, and that they can also be produced in quantity, nanophase materials should have considerable potential for technological development in a variety of applications.
Implementation of Stringent Environment Regulations
Implementation of stringent government regulations related to Construction or infrastructure will increase the market demand for glass ceramics in the near future. In India government launches Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) Mission launched on 25th June 2015 which intends to provide housing for all in urban areas by year 2022. The Mission provides Central Assistance to the implementing agencies through States/Union Territories (UTs) and Central Nodal Agencies (CNAs) for providing houses to all eligible families/ beneficiaries against the validated demand for houses for about 1.12 cr. As per PMAY(U) guidelines, the size of a house for Economically Weaker Section (EWS) could be upto 30 sq. mt. carpet area, however States/UTs have the flexibility to enhance the size of houses in consultation and approval of the Ministry.
Glass Ceramics Market Challenges
Danger of Burns
Ceramic cooktops are state of the art. Some conceal those ugly, old fashioned coil heating elements while others conceal state of the art electromagnets for induction heating. One of the biggest disadvantages of ceramic cooktops is that once the redness of the heating elements showing through the ceramic top disappears, you have no way of knowing that the ceramic may still be hot. Serious burns can result if you or one of your children touches the top. This is not a concern with an induction ceramic cook top because they are always cool to the touch.
Impact of COVID 19
The rapid spread of coronavirus has had a major impact on global markets as, major economies of the world are completely lockdown due to this pandemic. Because of this major lockdown, suddenly all the consumer market has started to show zero interest towards purchasing any goods. One of the major difficulties, market is facing are the shutdown of all kinds of International transportation. Global crisis for all sectors including building and construction, which was hit by slowing demand in goods' production and exports had slowdown the market for adhesion promoter.
Glass Ceramics Market Landscape
Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Glass Ceramics market. In 2019, the market of Glass Ceramics has been consolidated by the top five players accounting for xx% of the share. Major players in the Glass Ceramics Market are Dongguan Hongtai Glass Products, Far East Cable Co., Hehe Science and Technology Group, Jingniu Glass Ceramic Group, KEDI Glass-ceramic Industrial among others.
In September 2019, Unifrax, a leading global provider of high-performance specialty materials used in thermal management, emission control, batteries, specialty filtration and fire protection applications, backed by Clearlake Capital Group, L.P. (together with certain affiliates, "Clearlake"), has acquired the assets of Shenyang JiuQing Dongxiang Glass Product Co. Ltd ("DX"), a leading provider of high-performance specialty fibers in China, from the Li family.
