Electronic Ceramics Market Outlook - 2027

The global electronic ceramics market was valued at $11.3 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $16.6 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2020 to 2027.

Electronic ceramics, or electroceramics, are defined as ceramic materials that perform an electronic function. Electroceramic materials are extracted from various rocks and are available in powder form and various formulations. Various types of electroceramics available in the market include piezoceramics, dielectric ceramics, ferroelectric ceramics, and conducting ceramics. Electroceramics exhibit high strength, thermal & corrosion stability, chemical resistance, and wear resistance, which facilitate reliable and thermally efficient operation. Furthermore, the key role of electroceramics in electronics is their ability to miniaturize electronic components. Multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) for mobile device applications as small as 0.25mm have been developed. Major electroceramic include zirconia, titanate, zirconia, silica, niobates, and alumina. Components made of electroceramics include multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs), radio-frequency identification (RFID), noise filters, microelectromechanical systems (MEMs), thin & thick electronic substrates, sensors, and actuators. Zirconia-based ceramic gas sensors can detect gases such as CO2, SO2, and NOx. The emission of these gases is an environmental concern and needs to be monitored and regulated. By monitoring oxygen levels, they regulate the air/fuel ratio in engines. Titanates are used for the manufacture of piezoceramic devices such as capacitors, resistors, and transducers. Alumina is used in the production of electronic substrates and electronic packages.

The growth of the global electronic ceramics market is driven by various new technological updates in electronics, automotive, and communication systems. The Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to penetrate every sector. It enables digital transformation of various processes, and by using various sensors, it can monitor key operational parameters in healthcare, manufacturing, vehicle tracking, and storage monitoring. Furthermore, 5G network, which is faster than 4G, needs altogether a new set of equipment and antenna systems to transmit massive volume of data. According to Mark Wolf, the vice president of Kyocera International’s Fine Ceramics division, technologies such as electronics, computing, wireless networks, broadband internet, IoT, satellite communication, automotive collision avoidance systems, and medical technologies, including diagnostic imaging and robotic surgical tools may seem as diverse fields, yet none of these technologies function without electroceramics. Controllers, computers, automation, and new technologies and equipment use ceramic-based materials. Capacitors, sensors, and actuators are used are majorly used in consumer electronics, automotive, telecommunication, and power industries. However, the production of components from electroceramics is labor and capital intensive. Large research investment is required to develop new electroceramic components. This limits the penetration of new players in the electronic ceramics market. In addition, the market is currently dominated by players that have invested in the research & development of electroceramics fabrication and forward integration. This factor acts as a restraint of the global electronic ceramics market as it limits the influx of new component makers in the market. On the contrary, the development of new electroceramics that will benefit the component maker in terms of size and operational efficiency is anticipated to offer lucrative opportunities for the expansion of the global electronic ceramics market. In addition, the development of ceramic solid-state battery, which uses ceramic electrolyte instead of the more traditional liquid electrolyte finds its application in electric vehicles (EV). Ceramic solid-state batteries eliminate the risk of leakage or explosion. Applications include battery-backup for real-time clocks (RTCs), storage for energy harvesting, sub-battery in wearables, and energy storage for Bluetooth beacon transmission.
