  • 1. Advanced CeramicsPublished:September 2011No.Of Pages:290Price:US $ 4900Report SummaryDemand to advance 6%per year through 2015Demand 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 advanceas original equipment manufacturing in the US rebounds, especially motor vehiclesand electrical equipment. Further growth will come in environmental markets,where new regulations will dramatically increase demand for pollution controlsystems that se advanced ceramic filters and membranes.Electronic components to remain largest marketThe electronic components industry was responsible for more than one-quarter ofall demand for advanced ceramics in 2010, and it will remain the largest marketgoing forward. Semiconductors are the biggest single segment of this market,followed by capacitors. Advanced ceramic capacitors are used in many everydayitems. However, US production -- and associated materials demand -- forcapacitors and semiconductors will grow at a below-average pace, asmanufacturing activity continues to shift to lower-cost countries. Transportationequipment to register strong growth Transportation equipment markets will registerdouble-digit gains through 2015. An upturn in automotive production, especiallymedium and heavy vehicles,will spur increased demand for used incommercial diesel and gasoline engines. Additionally, new regulations (now beingphased in) that control diesel particulate emissions, as well as other pollutants, willsparkgrowth in the filtration and catalystsegments. Also, as jet enginemanufacturers work to make their products more efficient and quieter, the use ofadvanced ceramic materials is forecast to expand.Advanced ceramic turbine bladesare lighter, more heat resistant and durable than their metal counterparts. Coatingscontaining advanced ceramics are already in wide use in the aviation industry.Environmental markets will also rise at a strong rate through 2015, spurred by arise in emissions control spending by US industry. Greater use of ceramicmembranes in filtration applications, along with increases in demand for ceramicfilters and catalyst substrates, will fuel gains in this market.Browse All Manufacturing & Construction Market Research Reports
  • 2. Membranes trap more materials and allow higher flow rates than competingfiltration technologies.Ceramic membranes also have the ability to handle extremeenvironments,and stand up to sterilization and cleaning better than othereconomically feasible materials. Filters and catalyst substrates have becomepopular for similar reasons.Filters can withstand extreme environments and havemuch longer lives than textile or metal alternatives. Ceramic substrates have highporosity and large surface areas, which make them ideal for use withcatalysts.Improvements in manufacturing technology have reduced the cost ofproduction for advanced ceramics and, in turn, opened several small markets togreater growth. Machining advanced ceramics is expensive, as they are similar todiamonds in hardness. Near net shape processing, where the ceramic is formed toclosely resemble the final part before sintering, has grown in popularity and saveson finishing costs. Smaller grain sizes decrease sintering time and increasehardness, and pre-sinter machining.Study coverageAdvanced Ceramics is a new Freedonia industry study priced at $4900. It presentshistorical demand data (2000, 2005 and 2010) plus forecasts (2015 and 2020) bytype, product and market. The study also considers Advanced Ceramics Marketenvironment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles US industryplayers.Table Of ContentsINTRODUCTIONI. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY 1II.
