Report Overview

The global automotive ceramics market size was valued at USD 1.9 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to attain a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.6% from 2020 to 2027. Increasing demand for electronics applications in vehicles is likely to augment the growth of the automotive ceramics over the coming years. Advanced ceramics find applications in automotive sensors, LED & substrates, arc tubes, and spark plugs. Electronic components and sensors are essential in vehicles to manage information and run the systems, such as ASR and ABS. The U.S. accounted for a share of 12.3% in the global market. The demand in the country is mainly driven by the large-scale production of vehicles and automotive components. As per the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, nearly 10.8 million vehicles were produced in the U.S. in 2019. The automotive sector in the country observed adverse growth compared to 2018, on account of global slowdown and trade uncertainty.

U.S. automotive ceramics market size

However, in the long run, U.S. is likely to remain an attractive market for automotive ceramics vendors. Another factor that is likely to affect the market demand is increasing sales of SUVs and trucks in the country. Some of the factors boosting the demand for SUVs are their durability, resistance, and affordability.

Easy availability of auto loans is an indirect factor, which is promoting the sales of vehicles in the region. In addition, digitization of the loans has made the process simpler for the end-users. For instance, Honcker Inc. provides all the best deals offered by the nearby dealers for an automotive lease. This assists in avoiding lengthy procedures and helps save time.

Material Insights

Alumina segment held the highest market share of 40.3% in 2019. This material is widely used in a range of applications, particularly in sensors for vehicles. All the modern vehicles have sensors, such as fluid, pressure, proximity, and temperature, which is likely to boost the segment growth.

Ceramic coating is another application wherein demand for alumina, silica, and titanium dioxide is likely to increase over the coming years. Ceramic coating provides protection from friction, insulation, heat, wear, and corrosion. This coating also lasts longer than regular paint and remains intact during heavy vibrations and shocks.

Other materials, such as zirconia and yttria, are likely to have considerable growth on account of their mechatronics application and demand from sensors. Tire pressure monitoring and safety issues are some of the examples of automotive sensors, wherein advanced or engineering ceramics are widely used.

Application Insights

Passenger vehicles accounted for the highest market share of 68.6% in 2019 and is likely to maintain its position during the forecast period. This is attributed to a higher share of passenger vehicles in overall automotive production. As per the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), nearly 67.1 million commercial vehicles were produced globally in 2019. Government incentives for Electric Vehicles (EVs) are projected to assist in the growth of the market. For instance, in the U.S., income tax credit up to USD 7,500 is provided by the federal U.S. government on the purchase of EVs depending upon its battery size.

The commercial vehicles segment is projected to witness a growth of 5.3% from 2020 to 2027. Investment in new facilities for commercial vehicles is projected to assist in the growth of the segment. For instance, a joint venture between Volvo and Eicher Motors is likely to start in the second quarter of 2020 in India. This facility is projected to produce 40,000 commercial vehicles annually.

Global automotive ceramics market share

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific held the highest market share of 48.4% in 2019 and is estimated to be the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period. The growth of the region is attributed to large volume production and sales of automobiles in some of the leading countries, such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea. The inflow of foreign investment, availability of low-cost labor, and increasing target population are also projected to have a positive impact on market growth.

Rapidly expanding automotive manufacturing sector and increasing investments in this sector are projected to drive the market further. For instance, Toyota invested nearly USD 1.9 million in Indonesia in 2019. In July 2018, Volkswagen Group announced to invest USD 1.12 billion in India by 2021 to expand its presence in the country.

North America region is projected to witness significant growth from 2020 to 2027. Stringent regulations for fuel emissions by the governments in the region is likely to attract ceramics demand. For instance, as per Canadian emission regulations, it is mandatory for vehicles to have a US EPA certificate. This is projected to fuel the demand for lightweight materials, such as ceramics, plastics, and aluminum.
