The global automotive ceramics market is projected to witness healthy growth in the coming years, owing to growth in the sales of electric vehicles, declining cost of production and rising awareness toward the depleting fossil fuel resources.

Automotive ceramics comprise catalytic converters that reduce the emission of nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and unreacted hydrocarbons and are resistant to wear and tear. Ceramic products possess unique properties such as high temperature resistance, durability, light weight, and low electrical & thermal conductivity. The aforementioned properties offered by automotive ceramics have led to their increasing importance as a better substitute for plastics and metals.

Companies are preferring ceramics over gas-emitting components owing to the former’s eco-friendly properties and compliance with environment-related government norms. This has also led to an increase in the demand for ceramic sensor components such as oxygen sensors, pressure sensors, proximity sensors, and capacitive sensors.

Ceramics are lightweight and have good strength; however, their cost is higher than other metals and alloy counterparts, which is likely to hinder their demand. Recyclability and reparability are the two major challenges faced by the industry on account of the product characteristics such as hardness and high temperature resistance. Market players are introducing advanced high performing E-mobility ceramic components such as system for storing, fuel cells, temperature control, and power control electronics. For instance, Kyocera, a Japanese manufacturer of ceramics and electronics, introduced a wide range of products for automobile electronics segment such as multilayer ceramic substrates for LED packages, sensor packages, and millimeter-wave MMIC packages.

The cost of production has declined over the years owing to the advancements in technology, which are expected to open new avenues for the market players. Advanced ceramic engineering technology provides the automotive sector with all the necessary durable components that can handle high-temperature environments. For instance, Yttria Stabilized Zirconia is a ceramic material appropriate for manufacturing components such as mechanical seals and fuel injectors for engines with high durability and strength.

The automotive ceramics market can be segmented based on product, application, and materials. On the basis of products, the market can be segmented into structural ceramics and functional ceramics. Structural ceramics consist of bio-ceramics, aerospace, and wear-resistant ceramics used in brake discs, pump components, and catalyst support. Functional ceramics are mainly used in parking distance control system, knocking sensors, and oxygen sensors.

On the basis of application, the market can be divided into automotive engine parts, automotive exhaust systems, and automotive electronics. Ceramic sensors are used in the development of advanced monitoring systems. For instance, in the case of sudden loss of tire pressure, the ceramic tire pressure monitoring system warns the occupant.

The manufacturers of motor vehicles use composites, piezoceramics, monolithic materials, and magneto ceramics on oxide and non-oxide bases that ensure high reliability and durability. Ceramic coatings are extensively used as thermal barrier coatings for components inside and outside engines to improve fuel efficiency, engine performance, and horsepower and to reduce exhaust emissions. Ceramic products are used as electric insulators in hermetic packaging, spark plugs, and ceramic arc tubes for bare wires and power lines.

On the basis of materials, the market can be segmented into zirconia oxide ceramic, titanate oxide ceramic, and alumina oxide ceramic. Alumina oxide ceramic possesses an exceptionally good combination of mechanical, electrical, and chemical properties, which make it the prominently used material in automotive ceramics market. Thermocouple tubes, grinders, medical devices, seal rings, and electronic insulators are the application areas of alumina oxide ceramic. The increase in demand for zirconia oxide, owing to its unique properties such as high fracture toughness, high density, high flexural strength, and high chemical resistance, is one of the driving forces for automotive ceramics market.

Asia Pacific is a prominent market for automotive ceramics with the region witnessing growing integration of electronic components and ceramics in automotive applications. The region accounts for the highest automobile production in the world, which helps it maintain the lead in global automotive ceramics industry. Asia Pacific is becoming one of the key markets for the product with low-cost production and high demand from the local markets coupled with supportive government regulations. Brazil is the largest consumer of automotive ceramics in the Latin America region on account of an increase in the number of electric vehicle users in the country.

The key players operating in the automotive ceramics market include Kyocera, Ceram Tec, Elan Technology, Saint Gobain Ceramic Materials, CoorsTek Inc., and Morgan Advanced Materials. In June 2019, Morgan Advanced Materials exhibited its three businesses in GIFA, the largest international exhibition for foundry and metallurgy technology in Germany. CoorsTek Inc., a privately owned manufacturer of technical ceramics for aerospace, automotive, chemicals, electronics, medical, metallurgy, and oil & gas industries, invested USD 120 million for the development of a new center for Advanced Materials in Colorado. Kyocera uses energy conversion devices such as piezoelectric elements, ceramic heaters, and peltier modules which provides energy efficiency and sustainability. CeramTec uses armor componenets made of ceramics which fulfills the safety requirements for military vehicles.
