Transparent Ceramics Technologies and Global Markets

The global market for transparent ceramics reached $122.3 million and $143 million in 2013 and 2014, respectively. This market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.4% reaching $392.6 million in 2019.

This report provides:

  • An overview of the global market for transparent ceramics and related technologies
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2013, estimates for 2014, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2019.
  • Analysis of material properties such as wear resistance, corrosion resistance, temperature resistance, and weight or density composition
  • Insight into the different uses for these materials, from basic to end-use applications
  • Information pertaining to the market's dynamics, including drivers, restraints and potential opportunities
  • Comprehensive company profiles of major players in the field

This report provides an updated review of transparent ceramic materials and their fabrication processes, and identifies current and emerging applications for these materials. The study delineates the current market status for transparent ceramic materials, defines trends and presents growth forecasts for the next five years. The transparent ceramics market is analyzed based on the following segments: material type, application and region. In addition, technological issues, including key events and the latest process developments, are also discussed. 

More specifically, this report is divided into five sections.

In the first section, an introduction to the topic and a historical review of transparent ceramics are provided, including an outline of recent events. In this section, current and emerging applications for transparent ceramics are also identified and described.

The second section provides a technological review of transparent ceramic materials, with a description of their types, and an outline of the most commonly used materials. This section concludes with an analysis of the most important technological developments since 2012, including examples of significant patents recently issued or applied for, as well as highlighting the most active research organizations operating in this field.

The third section entails a global market analysis of transparent ceramics. Global revenues (sales data in millions of dollars) are presented for each segment (material type, application and region) with actual data for the years 2012 and 2013, and estimated revenues for 2014.

The analysis of current transparent ceramics revenues is followed by a detailed presentation of market growth trends based on industry growth, technological trends and regional trends. The third section concludes by providing projected revenues for transparent ceramics within each segment, together with forecast compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) for 2014 through 2019.

In the fourth section of the study, which covers global industry structure, the report offers a list of the leading manufacturers of transparent ceramics, together with a description of their products. The analysis includes a description of the geographical distribution of these suppliers and an evaluation of other key industry players. Detailed company profiles of the top players are also provided.

The fifth and final section includes an extensive U.S. patent analysis, with a summary of patents related to transparent ceramic materials, fabrication methods and applications. The patents examined in this study were issued from 2011 through 2014. Patent analysis is performed by region, country, assignee, patent category, application and material type.
