Key Market Trends

Electronic and Electrical Industry to Dominate the Market

  • Advanced ceramics have a wide range of electrical properties, including insulating, semiconducting, superconducting, piezoelectric and magnetic properties.
  • Gradually, these electrical components, such as sensors, antennas, capacitors, and resistors, are getting smaller and more capable. Therefore, this is a major area of development for advanced ceramics.
  • The production of cellular phones, portable computing devices, gaming systems, and other personal electronic devices will continue to spark the demand for semiconductors, capacitors, and other advanced ceramics-containing electronic components.
  • The growing electrical and electronic industry is estimated to boost the demand for advanced ceramics over the forecast period.

Japan to Dominate the Asia-Pacific Market

  • The Japanese electrical and electronic industry is one of the world’s leading industries.
  • Japan is a world leader in the production of video cameras, compact discs, computers, photocopiers, fax machines, cell phones, and other key computer components. Consumer electronics account for one third of Japan's economic output.
  • The government’s approved growth strategy, better known as the “Rebirth Strategy for Japan”, is focused on strengthening the manufacturing sector (which has targeted the development of new industries by 2020) and would cost around USD 1.3 trillion. The primary focus has been on the medical sector and energy sector, among others.
  • The Japanese automotive industry is one of the world’s largest industries. This is due to the investments made in the sector, which helped it grow.
  • These growth trends are anticipated to boost the advanced ceramic market in Japan over the forecast period.
