Drivers – Ceramics Market:

·       Increasing Demand for Advanced Ceramics from the Electronics Sector

The demand for advanced ceramics has increased, owing to its special features such as the wide range of electrical conductivity, that extends more than 15 orders of magnitude and cannot be matched by any other class of materials. They frequently allow for reduced product sizes and, hence, more commercially appealing items when compared to metallic materials.

The wide-ranging application of advanced ceramic materials in electrical engineering and electronics has increased over the past year to a correspondingly high number of variants in electrically passive and active materials. These days, a wide range of materials are available, such as ceramics for NTC, PTC, piezoelectric, and dielectrics. The key application of advanced ceramics is the manufacture of semiconductors. Some of the widely used advanced ceramics in semiconductor manufacturing are silicon carbide (SiC) and pyrolytic boron nitride (PBN). The increasing demand for advanced ceramics from the electronics industry, especially for manufacturing semiconductors is driving its market growth.

·       Increased Spending on Remodeling

Renovation activities are in growing demand for easy-to-maintain, better aesthetic, durable, and moisture, fire, and scratch-resistant tiles. Owing to the increasing comforts and interest in bathroom renovations, consumers prefer decorative bathroom tiles and are ensuring that the quality remains useful and noticeable for years with different looks like Stone Bathrooms look, Timber Bathrooms look, and so on.

Increasing home renovation and modular kitchen projects is one of the significant global ceramic market growth drivers.
