Polymer Derived Ceramics Market to Reach 10.2% CAGR Through 2022

May 15, 2018

WELLESLEY, Mass., May 15, 2018– Polymer derived ceramics, a new class of advanced materials which feature lower fabrication temperatures and improved cost efficiency, will experience an increased usage in the aerospace, energy, industrial, semiconductor and electronics industries, according to a report by BCC Research.

The global market is expected to see a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.2% through 2022, when it could be worth $712.4 million, according to the report Polymer Derived Ceramics: Global Markets to 2022.

Major players in the market include UBE Industries, Nippon Carbon Co., COI Ceramics Inc., Matech, KiON, Starfire Systems Inc., Plasma Processes, Kyocera Corp., Hitachi Chemicals Ltd., Ants Ceramics, Japan Fine Ceramics and CeramTec.

Research Highlights

  • SiC ceramics dominate the market by both size and growth by having an estimated value of $263.6 million and a CAGR of 10.4% by 2022.
  • Growth and market size for SiC ceramics will be dominated by the Asia-Pacific region which anticipates a value of $105.4 million and a CAGR of 10.7% by 2022. Meanwhile, Europe and North America will see a CAGR of 10.5% through 2022.
  • For Si3N4 ceramics, the Asia-Pacific region dominates in growth and size by being estimated at $91.8 million and with a CAGR through the period of 10.6%. North America will see a CAGR of 10.5% and  Europe will see a CAGR of 10.3% through 2022.

“Polymer derived ceramics represent a powerful tool for advanced ceramics,” the report states. “Their key advantage over conventional powder synthesis procedures is the possibility of adopting plastic-forming techniques such as fiber-spinning, foaming, warm pressing, extrusion, injection-molding or resin transfer molding to generate shaped components based on the requirement and later transformed into the desired ceramic parts.”

Main Growth Opportunities Include Technological Advancements and Nanotechnology

Increased demand for lightweight aircraft engine and industrial components presents tantalizing growth opportunities for the industry, the report notes. New technologies are being developed to manufacture polymer-derived ceramics with a wide range of properties and structurally efficient capabilities to meet these demands. Meanwhile, increasing demand for miniaturized technologies is presenting opportunities to introduce nanomaterials, nano-pillars, nanoparticles and nanorods into fields ranging from electronics to energy, all of which require polymer derived ceramics, meaning there are huge opportunities to grow the market in the direction of nanotechnology.
