Monocrystalline Transparent Ceramics Market was valued at $106 million in 2015 and is expected to garner $327 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 18.1% during the forecast period 2014 - 2022. Optics & optoelectronics was the highest contributor to the global monocrystalline transparent ceramics market in 2015. In the same year, Asia-Pacific held the leading position, and is expected to lead in the near future.

Access Full Summary at:

Monocrystalline transparent ceramics are used as a substitute to traditional glass, due to their superior mechanical properties with transparency similar to that of the glass. Improved and better durability, hardness, reduced optical losses, and improved reliability make it a more accepted alternative. Uniformity of the crystal structure is a critical component, which can be easily controlled while synthesizing monocrystalline ceramics as opposed to polycrystalline ceramics.

Rise in expenditure by the defense sector on development of advanced materials and associated technologies is expected to increase the market demand for monocrystalline transparent ceramics, owing to the numerous advantages it offers for the making defense oriented equipments like ballistic-protecting armor and windows, face-shields, night-vision goggles. Technologies like tactical high-energy laser are thought to change the scenario of future battles. Monocrystalline transparent ceramics being thermally less expansive can eliminate the problem of periodic replacement of traditional materials.

High-cost associated with its manufacturing may slow down the overall growth. Non-recyclability leads to the loss of precious raw materials. However, the cost-reduction by reducing size but enhancing properties of materials is the biggest advantage offered in nanotechnology which is expected to positively influence the monocrystalline transparent ceramics market.

Sapphire material was the highest revenue generator in 2015, as the production techniques are analyzed and is a well-known material in various applications. Its exceptional mechanical strength and superior transparency makes it suitable to be used in optoelectronics. Sapphire is the first choice as a substrate or a base material in electronics & semiconductor industry. Its scratch-resistance properties are being harnessed in developing transparent armor and increasing protection of ballistic vehicles.

Optics & optoelectronics application generated highest revenue in 2015, since electronics industry has grown rapidly and lasers are being researched for various uses. Optoelectronic components utilize transparent ceramic materials as substrate for various electronic components. Use of lasers for cutting, packaging, inspection, surgical treatments, printers, and weaponry systems is increasing, which is expected to fuel the demand for monocrystalline transparent ceramics during the forecast period.

Key findings of Monocrystalline Transparent Ceramics Market

  • The optics & optoelectronics application occupied the highest share in 2015, and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR, in terms of value, during the forecast period
  • Asia-Pacific is the leading consumer of monocrystalline transparent ceramics, accounting for approximately one-third share of the global market, followed by North America in 2015
  • Sapphire is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period
  • China is the leading market in the Asia-Pacific region, accounted for three-fifths of the Asia-Pacific market in 2015
