The global glass ceramics market size reached US$ 1.5 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 2.1 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.73% during 2023-2028. The escalating product demand in the building and construction industry, considerable growth in the semiconductors industry, and the increasing sales of glass-ceramics-based kitchen appliances represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Glass ceramics refer to materials composed of fine-grained polycrystalline materials formed by heat-treating glasses to a lower energy, crystallized state. Combining glass and polycrystalline ceramics, these materials are fabricated from polycrystalline materials that have fine microstructures through the crystallization of glass. These ceramics are formed by partially crystallized glasses with distinct crystalline and amorphous phases, and they are almost non-expansive over a considerable temperature range, while also reducing noise. In addition to exhibiting properties, such as abrasion resistance and high mechanical strength, glass ceramics can withstand harsh conditions, such as erosion, rain, and wind. In addition to their high strength, zero porosity and transparency, glass ceramics are chemically inert, making them highly thermally stable. Compared to their conventional counterparts, glass ceramics are robust and transfer heat more efficiently.
Glass Ceramics Market Trends:
The escalating demand for glass ceramics in the building and construction industry is a significant factor for the market growth. This can be attributed to the considerable expansion of construction activities across the globe. In line with this, the growing adoption of glass ceramics in the manufacturing of semiconductor appliances is also providing an impetus to the market. Besides this, rapid product utilization in the production of antennas for mobiles and Wi-Fi applications is also resulting in a higher product uptake. Moreover, the augmenting demand for glass ceramics in numerous orthopedic applications, such as spinal restoration in intervertebral spaces, is also creating a positive outlook for the market. The market is further propelled by considerable growth in the aerospace and defense industry resulting in an increased requirement for high-end aircraft and missiles. Apart from this, a significant rise in the sales of glass-ceramics-based cooktops, stoves, bakeware, microwave and fireplace doors is creating lucrative opportunities in the market on the global level. Extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by the key players focusing on advanced bioactive glass ceramics for bone and musculoskeletal tissue engineering and ongoing clinical trials in the medical industry are further fueling the market. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include rapid urbanization and industrialization, inflating disposable income levels, and continual product innovations.
