Overview of the global glass ceramics market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts that the glass ceramics market share will grow at a modest CAGR of just over 6% during the forecast period. Our glass ceramics trends indicate that market demand is driven the electronics industry in manufacturing antennas for mobile phones and Wi-Fi applications. Glass ceramics along with copper offer improved performance in antennas with a high response to frequencies. Since glass ceramics have excellent insulating and conducting properties, they are the materials of choice not just for electronics but in the semiconductor sector as well. Glass ceramics has helped the electronics industry build much smaller and highly efficient transistors, leading to advances in all types of devices.

According to our glass ceramic industry analysis, ceramic devices and implants are also very much in demand by the medical industry. A number of surgeons prefer to use ceramic implants as they are very strong, resistant to corrosion and also bio-compatible. The FDA has approved the use of ceramics in procedures such as knee and hip replacements.  Ceramic parts are also used in spinal implants and phalangeal joints. Glass ceramics are also used to make implantable sensors. With an increase in osteoporosis cases worldwide, the demand for glass ceramics in medical applications will grow steadily during the forecast period.
