These materials possess favorable properties for industrial use such as wear, durability, reliability, and high-temperature resistance.

On the contrary, ceramic matrix composites estimated to be the fastest growing segment with a CAGR of around 11% over the analysis period. They are mostly preferred in applications such as mechanical, environment, chemical, aerospace, defense, and energy because of their superior properties that include high strength along with excellent heat &wear resistance. Further, the segment registers an extensive Research & Development (R&D) processes for the development of advanced products that acts as an effective alternative for the metal alloys in hot zone structures.

Material Insights

Based on material, alumina led the global advanced ceramics market in 2019, accounting for a value share of 35% that year. Alumina or aluminum oxide refers to an advanced engineering material that possesses excellent wear resistance property. Moreover, high-cost effectiveness of the material plays a significant role in its extensive application in numerous end-use industries.

Titanate segment projected to grow at a rapid pace over the upcoming years witnessing a CAGR of around 11.0%. Titanate or aluminum titanate has the most vibrant thermal shock resistance compared to other materials across the world. Hence, the components made using this material likely to withstand extremely high temperatures of around several hundred degrees. The U.S. is the most prominent region in this material segment and further its demand predicted to rise at a significant rate across the region. Besides this, the Asia Pacific also estimated to be a key region in this segment owing to its increasing demand from electrical and manufacturing sectors.

Application Insights

By application, electronic devices captured the largest value share in the advanced ceramics market in the year 2019 and accounted for nearly half of the global revenue that year. Increasing need for high-performance and cost-effective electronic gadgets, particularly in the Asia Pacific expected to fuel the growth of the segment over the analysis timeframe. Advanced ceramics are widely used in the electronic device for insulating, superconducting, semiconducting, magnetic, and piezoelectric applications.

Bioceramics are analyzed to show the fastest growth over the forecast timeframe. They are inert substances that possess tremendous strength and wear resistance. Henceforth, they are largely utilized in surgical implants for example dental and bone implants. Aluminum oxide and zirconia oxide are the commonly used materials in this segment.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific emerged as the largest advanced ceramic market accounting for a value share of around 40.0% in 2019. Further, the region expected to retain its position during the forthcoming years because of prominent growth in the automotive and electrical &electronics industries, especially in India and China.
