Given below are some factors driving the adoption of the material across numerous engineering applications.
Demand for optical ceramics in defense sector
Aluminum oxynitride in the product segment of transparent ceramics industry is expected to grow at a significant pace in the upcoming years. The substantial utilization of aluminum oxynitride as optical ceramics in transparent armor used in the defense sector for ground vehicles, helicopters, aircraft, and others is the major factor driving the segment growth. Moreover, the growing adoption of the product as an affordable alternative to sapphire should further propel its consumption in defense application.
Higher suitability in healthcare equipment
The healthcare equipment application segment is likely to bring in a considerable share for the transparent ceramics industry by 2025. The exceptional physical properties of transparent ceramics such as higher mechanical and thermal stability along with superior optical transmission allow their applications in healthcare equipment. Radiation detection devices, medical laser devices, and medical imaging systems are some of the many healthcare equipment in which optical ceramics plays a critical role.
Optoelectronics industry in Europe and APAC
Europe transparent ceramics industry share is slated to grow significantly. The regional market expansion is major attributed to the flourishing optoelectronic industry and increased government expenditure in defense sector. As per Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), the military expenditure in European Union was around 1.4% of the total GDP.
Asia Pacific transparent ceramics industry is anticipated to witness an exponential growth rate through 2025. Owing to the increasing population, high disposable income, and substantial digital transformation, the growing demand for optoelectronic products in the region is likely to positively influence APAC transparent ceramics business growth.
