The global glass ceramics market totaled REDACTED in 2020 and REDACTED in 2021, with a growth rate of REDACTED from 2021 to 2026. The market should reach REDACTED by 2026.

Glass ceramics had substantial growth in the field of electronics, optical materials, dentistry and severe thermal mechanical environments.The material was first industrially designed by Dr.

Stanley Donald Stookey in the 1950s.Glass ceramics are valued for high technology and specialty applications, with numerous advantages over conventional powder processed ceramics: reproducibility of microstructure, uniformity and very low or null porosity.

Generally, glass-ceramic systems exist, as the ZAS system (ZnO × Al2O3 × nSiO2), LAS system (Li2O × Al2O3 × nSiO2) and the MAS system (MgO × Al2O3 × nSiO2).

In the field of medical and dentistry, glass ceramics are mainly used for implants in bone and in dental prostheses.As for electronics, glass ceramics have diverse use in microelectronic packing and electronic components.

The superior properties of the microstructure, dimensional stability and variation of the chemical composition make it an ideal choice in electronics.Its unique properties make for extensive applicability.

The presence of stringent regulations imposed by regulatory authorities ensure reduction of harmful emissions from manufacturing units, further boosting market size during the forecast period.

The competitive landscape for the glass ceramics industry is moderately consolidated with a few large-scale players dominating the market. Prominent companies operating in the market are Schott AG, Corning Inc., Nippon Electric Glass, Asahi Glass Co., Ohara Inc., Zeiss, 3M, Eurokera, Ivoclar Vivadent AG, Kyrocera and PPG U.S., among others.

The Asia-Pacific glass ceramics market is set to capture around REDACTED of the total glass ceramics market, with China accounting for almost REDACTED of the APAC market by 2026.The massive projected size is mainly attributed to the technological advancements in this region.

China dominates the glass ceramics market due to rising power generation, semiconductor and electronics, infrastructure development and chemical processing industries in the country.Entry of new industry participants and distribution networks strengthened by international players in the country will further support market growth over the forecast period.

The advanced ceramics industry supports aerospace, automotive, communication computers, medical and military in the region.
