Piezoelectric ceramics are a group of polycrystalline materials able of converting mechanical energy to electrical energy and vice versa. The most common piezoelectric ceramics are based on lead zirconium titanate (PZT). However, starting in the early 2000s there has been growing interest in the development and commercialization of piezoelectric ceramics that are lead-free due to environmental and public health concerns.

A number of sectors have been identified in which lead-free piezoelectric ceramics (LFPEC) find current and potential applications, including electronics and optoelectronics, transportation, energy, industrial, instrumentation, life science, defense and security, and consumer products.

This study provides an updated review of lead-free piezoelectric ceramic technology, including materials, properties, configurations, fabrication processes, and applications. It also offers a detailed market analysis for these products by segment (material type, configuration, application, and region), describing technical aspects and trends that will affect future growth of this market.

Electronics and optoelectronics currently account for the largest share of the market. Within this segment, lead-free piezoelectric ceramics are being used primarily for the fabrication of inkjet printers and electronic components such as MEMS and surface acoustic wave devices.
