Top Ten Companies in Technical and Advanced Structural CeramicsDocument Transcript
Top Ten Companies in Technical and Advanced StructuralCeramicsReport Details:Published:September 2012No. of Pages: 86Price: Single User License – US$2250REPORT HIGHLIGHTS•The North American market for technical and advanced structural ceramics was $3.2 billion in 2010 and $3.4 billion in 2011. This value is expected to increase to $4.4 billion in 2016, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1% between 2011 and 2016.•Bioceramics, the largest segment constituting 64% of the 2011 total technical and advanced ceramics market, should continue to hold that much of the market over the next five years.•The advanced armor and military market is expected to show slower growth than in the recent past due to the gradual U.S. disengagement from Iraq and Afghanistan.INTRODUCTIONSCOPE OF THE REPORTThe qualitative and quantitative judgments in this report represent a valuable contribution to theknowledge of leading companies in advanced and structural ceramic materials, components,processing techniques, applications and markets. Though emphasis is on company expertise andtheir market niche, direction is given in each structural ceramic application category and theirrespective properties, processing technologies, and properties. The increasing global nature ofthe advanced and structural ceramic market is evidenced through the companies discussed andtheir subsidiaries.INFORMATION SOURCES AND METHODOLOGYBoth primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparing this study. Findingsare based on information derived from interviews with developers, producers and potentialproducers of advanced structural ceramic materials, components and powders; industry experts;and people who perform research and development (R&D) on monolithic ceramic and ceramicmatrix composites. End users were contacted to evaluate the projected demand for technical andadvanced structural ceramics.Secondary data were obtained from trade publications, technical journals, government statisticsand BCC Research databases. Financial values are presented in constant dollars. Historicalfinancial values are for the year given.ANALYST CREDENTIALS
