Ceramics are widely used in several applications including biomedical, aerospace, automotive and electronics engineering owing to high mechanical strength & hardness and good thermal & chemical stability. Long processing timings and higher costs associated with ceramic forming techniques are major factors limiting ceramic usage in these applications. However, developments in ceramic additive manufacturing enables easy fabrication of complex geometries and thereby escalate the product demand.
Increasing demand for ceramic in the healthcare industry will provide a lucrative opportunity for ceramic 3d printing market expansion. Ceramics are mainly used in the dental sector for dental restoration applications including crowns, bridges, and veneers. Developments in ceramic materials including zirconia can be used as monolithic materials that eliminate the usage of porcelain chipping without losing physical stability of materials, thereby offer wider application in dental resonation.
R&D investments in developments of new ceramic materials for additive manufacturing will support ceramic 3d printing market expansion. Tethon 3D and Canon Inc. have developed alumina ceramic powder, that enhances corrosion, wear, and thermal stress resistance properties of materials. Additionally, the technology enables users to produce complex geometries with a high dimensional accuracy of over 99%. However, availability of substitutes for various industries might hinder the product popularity in coming years.
Additive manufacturing of ceramics is gaining momentum across the globe owing to optimization of timing and material usage by this process. American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) has provided several standards for ensuring the tensile strength, elongation, and thermal properties of ceramic materials. Such standards ensure the safety of fabricated parts and thereby support the ceramic 3d printing industry growth over the forecast timeframe.
