“Advanced ceramics is defined as a highly developed, high-strength ceramic material, which is primarily corrosion-resistant, lightweight, non-metallic and inorganic and possesses specific functional attributes. Advanced ceramics are used for engineering applications which possesses inherent characteristics such as ferroelectric behaviour, semi conductivity, non-linear resistance, and high stiffness.
Asia-Pacific is the global leader in the consumption of advanced ceramics and this dominance is expected to continue till 2020. China is the key market in the region, consuming more than half of the demand for advanced ceramics, followed by Japan, South Korea, and India where consumption is growing steadily. Increase in the consumption of advanced ceramics for monolithic ceramics, ceramic matrix composites, and ceramic coatings have been observed in Asia-Pacific due to continued industrialization and rise in the manufacturing sector of the region. The continuous growth and innovation, along with industry consolidations, are projected to ascertain a bright future for the industry.
Monolithic ceramics is one of the major product types of advanced ceramics market. Ceramics that include fabrication and polycrystalline microstructure without the reinforcement are referred to as monolithic ceramics. On the basis of these attributes the various types of monolithic ceramics are segmented into silicon nitride and zirconium oxide, zirconium carbide, aluminum nitride, silicon carbide and aluminum oxide. Monolithic ceramics are widely used in various end-user industries such as electrical & electronics, medical & bio-medical, transportation, industrial machinery, environmental, chemical, defense & security, and others.
