Ceramic materials are nonmetallic and inorganic materials obtained from compounds of metals and nonmetals. These materials are either crystalline or partly crystalline in their composition. They are derived from the action of heating and subsequent cooling. The construction industry is the major user of inorganic and nonmetallic ceramic materials are used. The report presents a comprehensive overview of the types of ceramic materials used in the construction industry and investigates the factors impacting the overall growth trajectory of the global construction ceramics market.
The global construction ceramics market is segmented into three categories. The first category includes high-performing ceramics such as silicon carbide, alumina, and silicon nitride. The second category comprises glass/glass ceramics such as borosilicate glass, soda glass, and lithium aluminosilicate. The last segment is inclusive of cementitious materials, which include concrete, cement, DSP cement, high pressure cement, MDF cement, and warm pressed cement.
The report studies the market from ground-up, and evaluates various facets pertaining to the market starting from its definition, classification, and growth trajectory. Compiled with the intent of updating stakeholders about the changing dynamics of the global construction ceramics market, the report presents information in a coherent chapter-wise format, interspersed with exhaustive data and graphs.
Overview of the Global Construction Ceramics Market
Ceramic products such as flooring, roofing and wall tiles, gypsum, cement brick, glass, and sewer pipe are increasingly used in the construction industry. Since these ceramics products belong to an incredibly diverse family of materials demonstrating application across the construction, aerospace, as well as electronic industries, the demand for them has significantly grown in recent years.
However, the expansion of the global construction ceramics market has not been hindrance-free. Implementation of better strategies is also required to help the market expand at an improved CAGR. Cost comparison between ceramics and traditional construction materials reveals that while ceramics materials are more economical alternatives for the future owing to their diverse applications and ability to withstand unfavorable environmental conditions, the initial cost they require is still very high, inhibiting their use on a large scale.
The construction industry at present faces several issues, including widespread infrastructural decay, particularly in the industrial sector. These issues have been attributed to the fast exhaustion of material for concrete structures worldwide. The increasing expenditure to rehabilitate these structures creates a lucrative market for construction ceramics, which ensure longer lifetime to structures and low maintenance requirements.
Among the key regional segments, Asia Pacific has emerged as the largest market for construction ceramics owing to the expansion of construction activities in India and China. Demand for construction ceramics is also likely to increase in Europe. Globally, China is anticipated to emerge as the most lucrative market for construction ceramics in forthcoming years.
