Advanced Ceramic TechnologyReport Summary

Demand to advance 6%per year through 2015

Demand for advanced ceramics in the US is forecast to rise 6.0 percent annually to $14.2 billion in 2015. After the recession of late 2007-2009, demand will advance as original equipment manufacturing in the US rebounds, especially motor vehicles and electrical equipment. Further growth will come in environmental markets, where new regulations will dramatically increase demand for pollution control systems that se advanced ceramic filters and membranes.

Electronic components to remain largest market

The electronic components industry was responsible for more than one-quarter of all demand for advanced ceramics in 2010, and it will remain the largest market going forward. Semiconductors are the biggest single segment of this market, followed by capacitors. Advanced ceramic capacitors are used in many everyday items. However, US production -- and associated materials demand -- for capacitors and semiconductors will grow at a below-average pace, as manufacturing activity continues to shift to lower-cost countries. Transportation equipment to register strong growth Transportation equipment markets will register double-digit gains through 2015. An upturn in automotive production, especially medium and heavy vehicles, will spur increased demand for ceramic.parts used in commercial diesel and gasoline engines. Additionally, new regulations (now being phased in) that control diesel particulate emissions, as well as other pollutants, will sparkgrowth in the filtration and catalystsegments. Also, as jet engine manufacturers work to make their products more efficient and quieter, the use of advanced ceramic materials is forecast to expand.Advanced ceramic turbine blades are lighter, more heat resistant and durable than their metal counterparts. Coatings containing advanced ceramics are already in wide use in the aviation industry. Environmental markets will also rise at a strong rate through 2015, spurred by a rise in emissions control spending by US industry. Greater use of ceramic membranes in filtration applications, along with increases in demand for ceramic filters and catalyst substrates, will fuel gains in this market.

Membranes trap more materials and allow higher flow rates than competing filtration technologies.Ceramic membranes also have the ability to handle extreme environments, and stand up to sterilization and cleaning better than other economically feasible materials. Filters and catalyst substrates have become popular for similar reasons.Filters can withstand extreme environments and have much longer lives than textile or metal alternatives. Ceramic substrates have high porosity and large surface areas, which make them ideal for use with catalysts.Improvements in manufacturing technology have reduced the cost of production for advanced ceramics and, in turn, opened several small markets to greater growth. Machining advanced ceramics is expensive, as they are similar to diamonds in hardness. Near net shape processing, where the ceramic is formed to closely resemble the final part before sintering, has grown in popularity and saves on finishing costs. Smaller grain sizes decrease sintering time and increase hardness, and pre-sinter machining.

Study coverage

Advanced Ceramics is a new Freedonia industry study priced at $4900. It presents historical demand data (2000, 2005 and 2010) plus forecasts (2015 and 2020) by type, product and market. The study also considers Advanced Ceramics Market environment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles US industry players.
