What are the Key Challenges Impacting Demand for Electronics and Electrical Ceramics?

Though the global electronics ceramics & electrical ceramics market is growing at a significant rate, a few factors such as high price of raw materials, shift of the end-use market from developed countries to the emerging countries, and the increasing cost of production hinder the growth of the market.

Additionally, electronics and electrical ceramics possess a relatively high dielectric constant, which delays signal propagation, along with low thermal conductivity, rendering them inefficient to draw away heat. Consequently, manufacturers are making efforts to introduce ceramics made from more robust material.

Why are Key Manufacturers of Electronics and Electrical Ceramics Targeting the Asian Market?

The electronics and electrical ceramics sales forecast reveals highly promising growth prospects across key Asian economies, notably China, India, Japan and South Korea, attributed to elevated demand for consumer electronics in recent years.

Amongst all Asian market, growth across China and India are likely to be of immense significance, as major telecommunications and consumer electronics giants are establishing manufacturing bases across these countries. While China surpassed US$ 100 Bn in 2019, India reached US$ 11 Bn with regard to consumer electronics sales.
