Online PR News – 05-November-2012 – Wellesley, MA – Wellesley, Mass.– In a recently published market research report, TOP TEN COMPANIES IN ADVANCED AND TECHNICAL CERAMICS (AVM084A), BCC Research identifies leading players in the advanced and technical ceramics market, a market where high-performance ceramics materials including ceramic powders, ceramic additives, structural ceramics and functional ceramics have increasingly replaced plastics and metals as key engineering materials.
The global ceramics market comprises products and components based on inorganic, nonmetallic, microcrystalline materials that are manufactured at high temperatures. The global ceramics market can be divided into traditional ceramics, such as bricks, tiles and white ware, and high-performance ceramics, which are ceramic materials and products optimized for special purposes. High-performance, advanced structural or technical ceramics have superior physical, electrical, chemical, or biological properties as compared to traditional ceramics and competing materials, like metals or plastics.
In this report, BCC Research identifies the top 10 companies participating in this complex market, as well as several other companies also deserving attention in the coming months and years.
Looking at a matrix of diversity in the products, use of advanced powders, processing and design innovations, and distribution systems, BCC Research uses these criteria to identify the Top Ten companies participating in this market.
