Advanced Ceramics Market by Material (Alumina, Zirconia, Titanate, Silicon Carbide), Application, End-Use Industry (Electrical & Electronics, Transportation, Medical, Defense & Security, Environmental, Chemical) and Region - Global Forecast to 2027
The global advanced ceramics market size is estimated to be USD 10.9 billion in 2022 and projected to reach USD 13.9 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 5.1%. Advanced ceramics have superior corrosion resistance compared to other materials (such as aluminum and steel), resulting in decreased maintenance and other costs for aircraft, automobiles, and armors. This makes these ceramics a favorable material for various end-use industries such as aerospace, energy & power, automotive, electronics, and military & defense.
Compared to other conventional alloys and metals, the thermal expansion of advanced ceramics is much lower when placed under the same environmental conditions. This factor has driven the use of these ceramics in different end-use industries. In addition, the high resistance to corrosion, temperature, low-wear process, and reduction in emissions provided by advanced ceramics are fueling the demand globally. These ceramics retain their shape and size even when they are used in extreme temperature applications, such as in gas turbines, aircraft engines, and fuel cells, providing dimensional stability and increasing safety. Advanced ceramics have superior wear resistance, high-temperature strength, and chemical stability in comparison to metals. These ceramics have replaced metals in many applications, such as cutting tools, bearings, filters, and coatings. They are also being used in niche applications in automobiles such as turbochargers, glow plugs, and combustion chambers. The increased use of advanced ceramics instead of metals in various end-use industries is driving the market globally. Advanced ceramics have replaced plastics in many applications, such as miniature components used in electronic circuits; instruments used in the pharmaceutical industry; and scalpels, tubes, and crucibles used in the medical industry. Advanced ceramics are expected to completely replace metals and plastics in many applications in the near future.
