Global Transparent Ceramics Market, published by Allied Market Research, forecasts that the global market was valued at $246 million in 2015 and is projected to reach $729 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 17.4% during the forecast period.

Optics & optoelectronics segment was the largest contributor to the global transparent ceramics market in 2015. Asia-Pacific held the leading position in 2015, and is expected to grow at the highest rate during the study period.

Transparent ceramics are scratch resistance for lookdown windows in aircraft and can sustain more rigorous conditions than glass, thereby increasing their demand in the coming years. The defense industry is currently making high investments for innovations and development of advanced ceramics to be utilized in various areas in the defense field. This is expected to increase the demand for transparent ceramics in the near future.

Monocrystalline transparent ceramics was the largest revenue generator in 2015, as these are crystal lattices that are free from surface defects and internal pore irregularities. These advantages make it suitable for applications such as radiation detection, particle detection, X-ray devices used for security reasons, gas exploration, optics, and electronics. This segment is also projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Increasing concern about safety of defense personals and VIPs is expected to result in replacement of conventional glass with sapphire glass, thus increasing the demand for sapphire. Sapphire is extensively used in electronics industry as a substrate material due to its insulating properties, thus driving the growth of this segment.
