Advanced Ceramic Industry Overview
The global advanced ceramic market size was valued at USD 97.0 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 130.2 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 3.7% during the forecast period. Rising demand from the end-use industries including renewable energy and medical are expected to propel market growth over the forecast period. Rising product demand from the clean technology industry will also support market growth.
For instance, products, such as solid oxide fuel cells are entirely made of advanced ceramics. Their benefits are anticipated to further increase their usage in the industry, by replacing single critical components like insulation materials. The market in the U.S. is majorly driven by the electronics industry where advanced ceramics are used in various applications such as substrates, circuit carriers, core materials, and other components. The electronics industry in the country, however, witnessed a decline in both production and consumption owing to the coronavirus outbreak, which affected the product demand.
