What are the Restraints being Faced by Advanced Ceramic Manufacturers?

The cost of advanced ceramics has been a source of concern for numerous businesses. The cost of ceramic fibers affects the prices of these ceramics to a large extent.

Alumina and silicon carbide ceramics production is still quite limited. These fibres are widely employed as composites in a variety of industries, including aerospace, medical, military and defense, and marine. The delayed manufacturing of ceramic fibres raises silicon carbide prices, limiting the growth of the advanced ceramics market.

Production of matrix is another element that contributes to the increased pricing of these ceramics. The manufacture of a matrix necessitates costly batch processes carried out at high temperatures in a controlled environment.

Introduction of certain advanced ceramic materials into a new application is regarded as a major obstacle for market growth.

Why are Alumina Ceramics Gaining Immense Popularity in the Market?

Alumina ceramics hold a significant market share. Sales of alumina ceramics are expected to increase 2.3X over the forecast period.

Alumina ceramics have outstanding qualities that make them suitable for use in a variety of situations, including wear, structural, and corrosive conditions. Due to electrical properties of alumina ceramics, these are commonly used in semiconductor equipment, wafer transfer components, and heat resistant and electrical insulation components.

Among other oxides, it has up to twenty times the heat conductivity. Alumina of high purity can be used in both oxidizing and reducing environments. Alumina-based composites are integral requirements for fabrication of monolithic specimens. Popularity of alumina ceramics as a desirable material is undergirded by its ability to form convolute shapes, while facilitating transparency and precision at both large and small dimensions, at a reduced cost.

Will Demand for Ceramic Matrix Composites in High-Performance Engineering Applications Rise?

Reinforced with fibers such as silicon carbide, ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) offer end users important properties such as low density, excellent thermal and chemical resistance, and higher strength. That, combined with CMCs’ intrinsic property to be tailored as composites, make the material suitable for high-performance engineering applications, especially in the aerospace and defense industries.

Ceramic matrix composites have huge potential in 3D printing whether the material is oxide-oxide, C/C or SiC/SiC as it has combination of properties required in the industry space.

The advanced ceramics landscape is witnessing new developments of highly efficient next generation of CMCs that are highly adopted in critical applications such as military, industrial turbines, and commercial jet engines. Hence, demand for ceramic matrix composites has increased to a great extent.

COVID-19 Impact on Industry

The COVID-19 epidemic has had a significant impact on most production industries, and the advanced ceramics industry is no exception. Even after shutdowns, all businesses participating in the supply chain were considered necessary and operational. Majority of market participants were forced to keep their production facilities closed throughout shutdowns, causing major supply chain issues.

Even though the pandemic impeded product demand in other businesses, it boosted demand for advanced ceramics in the medical sector. Because of its biocompatibility, advanced ceramics have emerged as a suitable material for carriers that house and deliver blood probes in diagnostic equipment.

During the pandemic, demand for diagnostic equipment, and hence, sophisticated ceramic carriers, is projected to rise as pharmaceutical and med-tech businesses race to expand their testing capacities.

Competitive Landscape

Leading companies in the market for advanced ceramics are putting a lot of effort into creating innovative technologies for unique applications.

Competition in the market has been observed to intensify in recent years. Major players in the market for advanced ceramics are investing in improving their product offerings as well as expanding their production capacities to cater to rising demand.
