Advanced Ceramics

As Quoted In AZOM

Demand will be driven by an increase in motor vehicle and electrical equipment manufacturing, and from new regulations that will boost pollution control ceramic filters and membranes.

US demand to rise 6% annually through 2015

Demand for advanced ceramics in the United States is forecast to increase 6.0 percent annually to $14 billion in 2015. Demand will be boosted by an increase in original equipment manufacturing in the US, especially of motor vehicles and electrical equipment, from modest 2010 levels. Further growth will come in environmental markets, where new regulations will dramatically increase demand for pollution control systems that use advanced ceramic filters and membranes. Additional growth in ceramic membrane sales will come as they replace other filtration media because of their better performance and durability.

Ceramic bearing demand will increase in the turbine market for similar reasons. The medical, aerospace and energy markets are expected to grow as well, as new materials offering better performance and longer part life are introduced. Joint replacements, including ceramic-on-ceramic and recently approved ceramic-on-metal hip replacements, will post strong gains as the US population continues to age.

Transportation equipment market to grow the fastest

Transportation equipment markets will register double-digit annual gains through 2015. An upturn in motor vehicle production, especially of medium and heavy vehicles, will spur increased demand for ceramic parts used in commercial diesel and gasoline engines. Additionally, new regulations (now being phased in) that control diesel particulate emissions, as well as other pollutants, will spark growth in the filtration and catalyst segments. For the aviation and electric utility industries, advanced ceramic turbine blades are lighter, more heat resistant and longer lived than their metal counterparts. Also, coatings containing advanced ceramics are already in wide use in the aviation industry.

Environmental markets will rise at a strong rate through 2020, spurred by growing emissions control spending by US industry. In addition, greater use of ceramic membranes in filtration applications, along with increases in demand for ceramic filters and catalyst substrates, will fuel gains in this market.

The overall market for advanced ceramics is impacted by the performance of the electronic components industry. More than one-quarter of all demand for advanced ceramics came from this market in 2010, and it will remain the largest market going forward, boosted by growth in piezoceramics. Semiconductors are the biggest single segment of this market, followed in size by capacitors. However, US production for capacitors and semiconductors will grow at a below-average pace, as manufacturing activity continues to shift to lower-cost parts of the world.

Study Scope

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.
