The market for advanced ceramics is expected to register a CAGR of over 9% during the forecast period. The major factors driving the market studied are the rise in use as an alternative to metals and plastics and the growing demand in the medical industry. High capital cost is expected to hinder the growth of the market studied.
- The electronic and electrical industry dominated the market and is expected to grow during the forecast period, owing to a wide-range of electrical properties of advanced ceramics, including insulating, semi-conducting, superconducting, piezoelectric, and magnetic properties. - Increasing usage in photovoltaic modules, wind turbines, and pollution control applications and increasing applications of silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) are likely to act as opportunities in the future. - Asia-Pacific dominated the market across the globe with the largest consumption from countries such as China and Japan.
Key Market Trends Electronic and Electrical Industry to Dominate the Market
- Advanced ceramics have a wide range of electrical properties, including insulating, semiconducting, superconducting, piezoelectric and magnetic properties. - Gradually, these electrical components, such as sensors, antennas, capacitors, and resistors, are getting smaller and more capable. Therefore, this is a major area of development for advanced ceramics. - The production of cellular phones, portable computing devices, gaming systems, and other personal electronic devices will continue to spark the demand for semiconductors, capacitors, and other advanced ceramics-containing electronic components. - The growing electrical and electronic industry is estimated to boost the demand for advanced ceramics over the forecast period.
Japan to Dominate the Asia-Pacific Market
- The Japanese electrical and electronic industry is one of the world’s leading industries. - Japan is a world leader in the production of video cameras, compact discs, computers, photocopiers, fax machines, cell phones, and other key computer components. Consumer electronics account for one third of Japan’s economic output. - The government’s approved growth strategy, better known as the “Rebirth Strategy for Japan”, is focused on strengthening the manufacturing sector (which has targeted the development of new industries by 2020) and would cost around USD 1.3 trillion. The primary focus has been on the medical sector and energy sector, among others. - The Japanese automotive industry is one of the world’s largest industries. This is due to the investments made in the sector, which helped it grow. - These growth trends are anticipated to boost the advanced ceramic market in Japan over the forecast period.
Competitive Landscape The advanced ceramics market is moderately fragmented, owing to the presence of many global players who manufacture and supply conventional and advanced ceramics globally. The major players of the market studied include Kyocera Corp., CoorsTek Inc., 3M, Morgan Advanced Materials, and Corning Incorporated, among others.
