A research report by BCC Research notes that the global market for advanced ceramic and nanoceramic powders should demonstrate solid, if not impressive, growth from 2016-2021.

A research report by BCC Research notes that the global market for advanced ceramic and nanoceramic powders should demonstrate solid, if not impressive, growth from 2016-2021.
According the the news:

Advanced ceramic and nanoceramic powders generally refer to inorganic nonmetallic granular materials that are fabricated from chemical processes, as differentiated from what are termed industrial minerals. The latter group is mined directly from the earth and purified and reduced in size to particular specifications. BCC Research’s new report covers oxides, carbides, nitrides and borides that, with a few exceptions, are sold as starting materials for solid commercial articles.

BCC Research analyst Andrew McWilliams commented:

The market is and will continue to be dominated on a volume basis by oxide ceramics, primarily nanocrystalline silica, alumina, iron oxide, titania and zinc oxide. Nanocrystalline silica and alumina alone constituted more than 30% the market in 2015. The potential commercial applications are very much in the discovery stage, partly because the material behavior of ceramics and other materials from nanopowders are in the process of being defined. As the market for nanoparticles expands, especially in demanding applications such as semiconductors and pharmaceuticals, existing production technologies are continually being refined and new processes developed.
