Drivers & Restraints-Ceramics Market
Rising Demand for Ceramics from Automotive & Medical Industries to Boost Growth
Ceramics are mainly used in the building & caonstruction industry to produce sanitary wares, bricks & pipes, and tiles. It is one of the most preferred materials in this industry because of its characteristics, such as chemical inertness, electrical resistance, hardness, and toughness. Apart from this, the demand for ceramics is rising at a fast pace from the automotive and medical industries. They are used to make mechanical and electrical components, catalytic converter substrates, and sensors in the automotive industry. In the medical industry, it is used to reconstruct fractured bones, replace tooth, and in surgical bone implants. These factors are expected to accelerate the ceramics market growth.
Tiles Segment to Grow Rapidly Backed by Usage of Ceramics to Create Visually Appealing Products
In terms of application, the market is fragmented into bricks & pipes, tiles, pottery, abrasives, sanitary ware, and others. Out of these, the sanitary ware segment held 7.5% ceramics market share in 2018. This growth is attributable to the increasing usage of ceramics for manufacturing a wide range of sanitary wares as they are leak-proof, visually appealing, and are capable of sustaining heavy loads. The tiles segment, on the other hand, currently holds the largest share backed by the extensive usage of this material to create visually appealing tiles. It also provides high strength to the tiles, unlike the conventional clay tiles.
