The analysts forecast the global glass ceramics market to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% during the period 2016-2020.
Nanophase materials are increasingly being used for the production of high-strength compact composite coatings for advanced implants. Manufacturers in the market are investing substantially in developing advanced nanophase ceramics for use in diagnostic devices and implantable electronic devices.
According to the report, ceramic materials are widely used in building projects in commercial and industrial sectors as these materials effectively help reduce sound and are cost-effective compared to other materials. The glass ceramics of the CaO-Al2O3-SiO2 system show promise as construction materials. They are used for abrasion and chemically resistant parts or floor and wall tile in the chemical, mechanical, construction as well as heavy industries.
Further, the report states that glass ceramics are prepared using sol-gel technology. However, the cost associated with sol-gel technology is high because of the high cost of precursors.
