The GLOBAL OPTICAL CERAMICS MARKET SIZE reached $148 Million in 2018 and is estimated to register a CAGR of around 15.2% during the forecast period, 2019–2025. The growth of the global optical ceramics market is driven by the increasing demand for material having properties such as high-temperature resistance and high stiffness in the aerospace & defense industry.
The global optical ceramics market was led by North America with the largest contribution in 2018 and is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market during the forecast period.
Market growth has also been fueled by demand or substitutes of glass, plastics, and metals.
Asia-Pacific is projected to be the second-largest market due to innovations in the optical and optoelectronics segment.
However, the Middle East & Africa and Latin America are projected to witness steady growths during the forecast period.
Asia-Pacific, Latin America, North America, Europe, and the Middle East & Africa are the regions analyzed under the scope of the global optical ceramics market.
The global optical ceramics market has been segmented based on material, application, end-use industry, and region.
By material, the global optical ceramics market has been classified into sapphire, phosphor, aluminum oxynitride, spinel, and others.
The sapphire segment is expected to be the largest and fastest-growing segment during the forecast period as it offers properties such as scratch resistance and high optical transparency, owing to which it finds application in the checkout doors at the supermarket.
Yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) exhibits high thermomechanical properties owing to which it is widely used in the production of nanocomposite optical ceramics, which are high in demand for applications in range finders, target designators, and spot welding.
