Summary
Advanced ceramics are a significant category of engineered materials pushing the performance of technology-based components and systems.They are an enabling technology critical to a wide range of applications including electronic devices and systems, high temperature applications such as advanced combustion engines and high temperature environments, and applications such as abrasives, cutting tools, and guide fixtures where high hardness and chemical stability is required.

The advanced ceramic powders discussed in this report are categorized by their chemistry as oxides, carbides, nitrides and borides. An additional category of ceramic powders beginning to find its way out of R&D laboratories and into commercial applications are nanosized powders.

The analyst estimates the market for advanced and nanosized ceramic powders at nearly REDACTED in 2017 and over REDACTED in 2018. This market is forecast to expand to approximately REDACTED in 2023, a projected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of REDACTED from 2018 through 2023.

Reasons for Doing This Study
The analyst published its first report on this subject, entitled Advanced Ceramic Powders, in 1994. Since then a succession of new developments has occurred, including the commercialization of powders using techniques previously confined to the laboratory and the introduction of nanoscale ceramic powders into the economy.
