Soaring Demand from Ceramic Matrix - Composites Segment
The increasing use of advanced ceramics as an alternative to metals and plastics and increasing demand from the medical industry drive this market. However, factors such as high cost and recyclability issue may hinder the growth of the market. Ceramics that include fabrication and polycrystalline microstructures without the reinforcement process are referred to as monolithic ceramics. Monolithic ceramics are the major product type of advanced ceramics market worldwide.
Asia-Pacific Region to Lead the Market
Asia-Pacific is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecasted period, followed by North America and Europe. Furthermore, there is an increase in the use of nanotechnology and higher application in wind turbines and pollution control applications.
Notable Developments in the Market:
March 2018: 3D printed ceramics reduce cost as well as lead times for complex aerospace parts.
Feb 2017: Ceram Tec announced acquisition of the UK Morgan Advanced Materials’ electro-ceramics business.
Jan 2016: Saint-Gobain and Corning Incorporated announce new joint venture to produce lightweight glazing for the automotive market.
Major Players: Advanced Ceramics Ltd, COI Ceramics Inc., CoorsTek Inc., Ceradyne Inc., Kyocera Corporation, and Corning Incorporated, amongst others.
