Ceramics Manufacturing in the US
The Ceramics Manufacturing industry has contended with high import competition, which has been exasperated by increases in the trade-weighted index and weakened demand from the Semiconductor and Circuit Manufacturing industry (IBISWorld report 33441a), weakened crucial downstream markets. However, growth in housing starts and increased demand from automobile electronics manufacturing have supported revenue growth. During the previous five-year period, large multinational operators focused efforts on foreign markets by acquiring foreign manufacturers and expanding locations abroad with low production costs and high levels of technological development. Over the next five years, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to slow as import competition remains high and residential construction slows.
This industry includes establishments that primarily manufacture advanced ceramic materials and components, pottery and plumbing fixtures made of clay or other ceramic materials. This industry does not include companies that primarily make ceramic tiles or refractories, which are included in the Clay Brick and Product Manufacturing industry (IBISWorld report 32712).
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
