Demand for advanced ceramics in the US is forecast to increase 6.0 percent annually through 2015. Transportation and electrical equipment will be the fastest growing markets, while electronic components remain the largest market. Monolithic ceramics will remain the dominant product while ceramic matrix composites grow the fastest.
This study analyzes the $10.5 billion US advanced ceramics industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by type (e.g., alumina, titanate, zirconate, ferrite, silicon carbide), product (e.g., monolithic ceramics, ceramic coatings, ceramic matrix composites), process and market (e.g., electronic components, electrical equipment, transportation equipment).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 36 industry players, including Kyocera, CoorsTek and Ceradyne.
