The global advanced ceramics market size was USD 82,972.9 million in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 1,80,463.4 million by 2028, exhibiting a significant CAGR of 10.2% during the forecast period. Advanced ceramics are referred to as high-tech ceramics, technical ceramics, high-performance ceramics, and engineered ceramics. Technologies such as hydraulic pressing, injection molding, isostatic pressing, tape casting, and pressure casting are used to provide better-quality ceramics products.

The property spectrum of ceramics ranges from heat, wear, temperature, and corrosion resistance to food compatibility and biocompatibility. These ceramics are also categorized into monolithic ceramics, ceramic matrix composites, and ceramic coatings based on the product type. Most of the ceramics are monolithic, i.e., composed of a single chemical compound. The rising consumption of ceramics in the medical industry, coupled with the increasing product adoption as a substitute for metals and plastics in the automotive industry, will boost the market growth during the review period.       

Disruption in Electronic and Automotive Industries as a Result of COVID-19 to Decline Demand

The automotive and electronic industries have been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Regulations by governments across the globe have restricted the movement of man and material. It has impacted the overall production of automotive products and caused shipment delays for the manufacturing of electronics. In addition, the pandemic resulted in the closure of manufacturing plants in the U.S. and disruption in the entire supply chain across China and India. The automotive and electronic industries underwent a demand shock and a decline in revenue owing to shelter-in-place regulations. However, as governments in these countries are taking initiatives to normalize the working of their industries, the market is anticipated to regularize in the next couple of years.

Rising Demand for Electroceramics is a Prominent Trend in the Global Market

The rising demand for ceramics from the field of electroceramics will propel the market growth during the forecast timeline. Electroceramics are the subclass of advanced ceramics that are used in applications ranging from simple insulating materials to complex ferroelectrics. The product offers resistance to high temperatures and pressures, compressive strength, and greater wear resistance properties. Moreover, the growing demand for modern consumer electronic appliances and ongoing advancements in electronics technologies are expected to boost the demand for electroceramics. This led various manufacturers to focus more on electroceramics-based products and come up with innovative characteristics for their offerings. For instance, in February 2017, CeramTec acquired the U.K. electroceramics business from Morgan Advanced Materials. Hence, these factors will boost the demand for electroceramics and will flourish the advanced ceramics market growth.


Increasing Demand for Advanced Ceramics from Automotive and Medical Industries to Boost Growth

The rising demand for the product from the automotive and medical industries will contribute to boosting the key market growth. In the automotive industry, the high consumption of the product can be seen in battery components owing to their thermal and electrical properties. In the medical industry, zirconia ceramics are highly utilized. The growth is driven by its advantageous biological, physical, and aesthetic properties. Therefore, it will showcase a surging demand for implant abutments, artificial bones, and endosseous implants. Hence, the increasing product demand in these industries will fuel the market growth during the review period.


 High Prices of Advanced Ceramics to Hamper Growth

The price of these ceramics is high when compared with metal and alloy. The high prices are due to their expensive production method, which includes raw material processing, forming process, sintering, diamond grinding, and inspection. This method requires different machinery and expensive stones that raise the product cost, which further increases the overall price of the product. This restricts the product demand in various industries such as electronics, automotive, and chemicals and is anticipated to hamper the market growth during the forecast timeline.


By Material Analysis

Alumina Segment to Hold Largest Share during the Forecast Period

On the basis of material, the market is segmented into alumina, zirconia, titanate, silicon carbide, silicon nitride, and others. Alumina is the leading segment and accounted for the largest market share in 2020. It is available at the lowest cost and offers high performance. Therefore, it is produced in large quantities. Alumina ceramics are highly adopted for finishing and roughing applications of cast and gray iron. On the other hand, zirconia is the second leading segment in the global market. The product finds major usage in the electrical & electronics industry owing to its dielectric and ferroelectric properties.

Titanate has gained prominence owing to its increasing use as a spacer segment between catalyst substrates and claddings of port liners in the automotive industry.
