Industry Trends

Electronic Ceramics Market size was USD 11.99 billion in 2019 is projected to grow at a steady CAGR of 3.8% from 2020 to 2026. Continuous increase in the usage of internet and related services across the globe and positive outlook of the telecommunication sector will positively influence the revenue growth during the forecast timeframe.

Electronic ceramics are used in a wide range of technological applications including actuators, data storage devices, sensors, and transducers due to their excellent electrical, magnetic, & optical properties. The proliferating telecommunication industry is one of the key factors supporting the electronic ceramics market expansion. These ceramics exhibit low dielectric constant and high electrical resistivity, that makes them ideal to be used as an insulator and in making substrates for integrated circuits.

Microwave dielectric materials play a crucial role in a broad range of applications in the satellite & terrestrial communications including GPS, software radio, and environmental monitoring via satellites. Growing use of the Internet and related services is another factor promulgating the electronic ceramics market demand. Presently, over four billion people across the world are using the internet. A cell phone antenna is necessary for voice transmission & signal reception and is made from electronic ceramic materials.

Africa witnessed the fastest growth in the number of internet users across the MEA region, rising by more than 20% annually. In 2020, the number of internet users is over 4.5 billion, increasing with a growth rate of almost 8% from 2019. Additionally, social media users soared to almost four billion, up by 10% from 2019. Thus, a rise in the number of cellphone and internet users will propel the electronic ceramics market share.

The U.S. telecommunications industry is balanced with equal proportions of positive & negative influences. The Trump administration's new telecom regulatory organization, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will be less strict compared to the Obama’s administration and is likely to roll back several regulations of the previous regime. This factor will significantly increase the number of internet and cell phone users, further escalating electronic ceramics market growth.

Furthermore, the government decided to enhance broadband availability in rural towns. Rural broadband provision will be an element of his ambitious USD 1 trillion infrastructure plan, further influencing the demand for electronic ceramics.

The Middle East and Africa (MEA) telecommunication sector is experiencing robust growth and investments, which is mainly driven by strong demographic and technology expansion. The MEA claims around 10% of the global telecommunications services’ revenue and almost 20% of the economic profit. These regional factors are supporting the regional electronic ceramics market sales in telecommunication services.

The electronic ceramics pose severe human and environmental health risks. Most of the piezoelectric ceramics are lead-based, which when disposed can result in serious health impacts due to their lead content. Lead accumulates in the soil, that continues to move into organisms, plants, and grazing food chains. It then affects the central nervous system of animals and inhibits their ability to produce red blood cells.

Furthermore, the coronavirus pandemic has led to a worldwide lockdown and temporary closure of production facilities, resulting in the disruption of the supply chain. The sales of electronic ceramics are likely to decline as significant portion of the demand is lost from the automotive and telecommunications sectors. Additionally, the ban on inter-state & international transportation of finished products has adversely affected the electronic ceramics market.
