DUBLIN – (COMMERCIAL THREAD)–The “Automotive Ceramics Market by Material, Component and Vehicle Type: Analysis of Industry Opportunities and Forecast, 2020-2027” report was added to ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The global automotive ceramics market was valued at $ 1.9 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach $ 3.1 billion by 2027, with a CAGR of 6.5% from 2020 to 2027.

Automotive ceramics consist of components made from advanced ceramic materials such as zirconia (Yttria Stabilized Zirconia) and alumina. Ceramics provide high temperature reliability and are economical compared to metal and other non-ceramic materials. Ceramic auto parts include various spark plug insulators, foundry cores, sensor discs, metering tubes, armor, welding nozzle, holder, ceramic brake caliper bushings, fluid seals and resistance cores . These components are used in various sections of a vehicle, ranging from the engine block and exhaust systems to vehicle lights. A typical vehicle consists of various ceramic seals, sensors and actuators required for monitoring and controlling the automobile.

The global automotive ceramics market is currently driven by factors such as evolving vehicle emission control regulations and growing consumer demand for fuel efficient vehicles.

The rapidly growing passenger vehicle segment across the globe has driven the expansion of the automotive ceramics market. As a result of such expansion, the need for strict emissions regulations has arisen in recent years. Governments around the world are implementing strict emissions regulations, which has prompted auto component manufacturers to develop more efficient ceramic filters for exhaust systems. Ceramics are widely used in exhaust systems to filter pollutants, especially in diesel particulate filters. Ceramic filters are inexpensive, easy to manufacture, strong and durable. In addition, the growing electric vehicle market is also playing an important role in the growth of the automotive ceramics market. Other factors such as reduction in vehicle weight are also expected to boost the global automotive ceramics market during the forecast period.

However, the high cost of automotive ceramics design and development restrains the market growth during the forecast period. The development of ceramic automotive components is very capital intensive and requires strong R&D investments. The major players operating in this market have established their presence in all key regions. Additionally, downstream integration which includes sourcing ceramic materials, designing and manufacturing ceramic components has helped them reduce production costs and development time, making them very competitive. On the contrary, the development of low-cost manufacturing technologies to manufacture ceramic-based components is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the automotive ceramics market.

The global automotive ceramics market is segmented into material, component, application, and region. On the basis of material, the global automotive ceramics market is divided into alumina oxide, titanate oxide, zirconia oxide, and others.

Impact of COVID-19

  • The auto industry has been one of the industries most affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic as it disrupted the entire supply chain from the supply of materials to the end consumer.

  • As for the supply of automotive ceramics, the closure of operations in China had a strong impact on the supply of ceramic materials. China is a key region for the supply of ceramic raw materials such as zirconia and alumina.

  • On the demand side, there has been a shift in consumer spending habits as consumers have delayed purchasing a new vehicle to minimize spending. This decline in auto sales resulted in lost revenue for all auto manufacturing companies. The decline in consumer demand was evident in their quarterly sales.

  • Major automakers, such as Toyota, have temporarily suspended or intend to temporarily suspend production of automobiles and components at selected factories in Japan and abroad.
