Optical ceramics Market: Introduction
Optical ceramics may be defined as transparent polycrystalline materials that could be used in place of single crystal scintillators. Ceramic fabrication methods are adopted for their production and the scintillator material chosen should be transparent in its emission wavelength. Optical ceramics are replacing glass, plastics and metals at a rapid pace and thus, catching the world’s attention. The global optical ceramics market is expected to foray ahead with a higher single digit CAGR over the forecast period of 2019-2029. Increase in production capacities of ceramics has emerged as the recent trend in the market. For instance, in March 2019, Okayama Murata Manufacturing has completed the construction of its production capacity at Okayama, Japan. In addition, Kyocera has built ceramic microelectronic packages manufacturing plant in June 2018 at Kagoshima, Japan. Hence, such capacity expansions tend to increase the production of optical ceramics that in turn drives the market growth over the forecast period. Moreover, factors such as demand of alternatives to glass, metals and plastics, coupled with increasing defense expenditure for research & development of advanced materials, tend to boost the market growth till 2029. However, high cost of optical ceramics acts as a restraining factor to the Optical ceramics market growth over the forecast period.
Increasing Research & Development Activities for Advanced Materials by Defense is Providing Traction to the Market Growth over Forecast Period
Inclination of defense towards research and development of advanced materials is creating huge adoption avenues for the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in June 2019, the Australian Department of Defence selected seven innovative research projects from Australian universities dedicated towards advanced material research. In addition, the United States has spent $78.1 billion on defense R&D in 2016. The major areas of research were advanced materials, drones, nuclear weapons and others. Therefore, such projects tend to enhance the research and development of advanced materials that consequently drives the optical ceramics market growth till 2029.
