The Asia-Pacific advanced ceramics market is expected to witness a moderate growth during the forecast period, 2018 - 2023. The market is driven by a number of factors, such as the growing demand from various applications and the increased usage as an alternative to metals and plastics, and also these advanced ceramics are environment-friendly and reliable for use.
Advanced ceramics exhibit a number of exceptional properties like high resistance to bending, melting, stretching, corrosion and wear & tear. Their physical stability, heat resistance, chemical inertness, good electrical properties and suitability to be used in mass products, make them better alternative to metals and plastics. The electro-ceramics find extensive use in electronic substrates and packaging as the dielectric, the piezoelectric, the magnetic, and the optical ceramics. The structural ceramics include the automotive ceramics, aerospace, bio-ceramics, and wear-resistant ceramics. Advanced ceramics can be used in the aerospace sectors, specifically on turbine blades in order to resist the extreme temperature and high-pressure conditions. Considering the above-mentioned properties, the advanced ceramics are one of the best substitutes for metals and plastics.
Alumina is the most widely used advanced ceramic, more than 60% of the advanced ceramics used are in the form of alumina. It offers an extremely good combination of mechanical, electrical, and chemical properties, and has numerous uses. The common applications of alumina are thermocouple tubes, electrical insulators, seal rings, medical devices, grinders, and wear components. Its properties are great strength & stiffness, hardness, wear resistance, thermal stability, corrosion resistance, low dielectric constant, excellent dielectric properties, and excellent chemical resistance.
