Global Advanced Ceramics Market 2016-2020
About Advanced Ceramics
Advanced ceramics are mainly produced by controlled crystallization of certain chemicals, generally induced by nucleating additives. They are made of nitrates, carbides, oxides, and other materials using modern processing technologies. These ceramics are hard, durable, wear resistant, corrosion resistant, and have different electrical properties. The properties of these ceramics depend on their composition and microstructure.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global advanced ceramics market to grow at a CAGR of 7.21% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global advanced ceramics market for 2016-2020. The report also presents the vendor landscape and corresponding detailed profiles of the five prominent vendors operating in the market.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Advanced Ceramics Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global advanced ceramics market: CeramTec, Ceradyne, CoorsTek, Morgan Advanced Materials, and Kyocera.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: McDanel Advanced Ceramic Technologies, and Saint-Gobain.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Development of advanced ceramic coatings will be a key trend for market growth. Aluminium oxide, titanium oxide, and zirconium oxide are commonly used as ceramic coatings and for producing ceramic-on-metal medical components. In addition, many manufacturers have shifted toward advanced glass ceramic coatings based on silicon dioxide. The use of ceramics in these applications is likely to increase due to the emergence of newer ceramic coating techniques, such as titanium, among medical component manufacturers.”
According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be improved antenna performance by advanced ceramics. Antennas made of copper tracks are used on a small ceramic cylinder and are laser trimmed for obtaining extreme frequency response. These antennas are normally used in Global Positioning System (GPS) applications. In the US, E-911 legislation mandates the use of these antennas in mobile phone handsets and this aids emergency services to respond more efficiently during distress calls.
Further, the report states that technical ceramics cannot be reused or recycled in the same application. Due to the long lifespan and mechanical and optical properties of technical ceramics, the different composites that are used in various end-use industries face the issue of recyclability and repairability. This is a major challenge for the global technical ceramics market. Further, internal wear and tear and cracks in ceramic structures are hard to find. Therefore, skilled personnel and sophisticated equipment are often required to find such anomalies; this incurs significant investments to the end users. However, advances in technologies in terms of equipment that detect flaws in technical ceramics can foster the market over the forecast period.
