The global advanced ceramics market was valued at USD 56 billion in 2015. The rising demand for electronic devices, notably in the emerging regions such as Asia Pacific, is expected to drive the growth of this industry over the forecast period.
Advanced ceramics, such as alumina nitride, silicon carbide, and titania, are more economical and high-performing in comparison with plastics, metals, and glass, thereby rendering them a good alternative to traditional materials.
The products, particularly the oxide and alumina ceramics, have properties such as, high modulus, wear resistance and inertness, which make them vital in the electronics segment. The rising demand for consumer durables in India, China, and Thailand is expected to be a key driver for the growth of the product during the forecast period.
The growth of this industry can also be attributed to the new manufacturing innovations taking place in the electronic devices segment, most notably in major markets such as Japan and China. In addition, the presence of numerous manufacturers in the region is expected to augment the product demand during the forecast period.
Advanced ceramics materials are widely used in devices, which undergo high wear & corrosion and operate at high temperatures. These products find wide applications in electrical equipment, catalyst supports, electronic devices, engine parts, and bio-ceramics, among which, the electronic devices segment accounted for the largest share in 2015.
The bio-ceramics segment was valued at nearly USD 2 billion in 2015. The bio-ceramics segment is expected to observe significant growth during the forecast period, primarily driven by the growing application scope in the medical sector. The recent developments in this field have facilitated the use of bio-ceramics for tissue & bone development and joints & hip replacement.
