The automotive industry uses piezoelectric ceramics in applications such as airbag sensors, fuel injectors, and engine control modules, and the growing demand for electric vehicles (EVs) and autonomous vehicles is boosting their use.


The range of materials exhibiting strong piezoelectric properties is limited, which can restrict the development of ceramics for specific applications and hinder performance improvements. Achieving consistent and uniform piezoelectric properties across large-scale production is a challenge, as variations in material composition and processing can lead to inconsistent performance. Piezoelectric ceramics tend to be brittle and fragile, making them susceptible to cracking and breakage during manufacturing, assembly, or operational stress. Thus, the risks associated with Piezoelectric ceramics may drive down the acceptance rate, further hampering the business growth.

COVID-19 Impact

Some applications, like automotive and consumer electronics, experienced decreased demand, while others, such as medical devices and healthcare equipment, saw increased demand due to the pandemic's impact on healthcare infrastructure. Thus, the reduced number of COVID-19 cases and implementation of subsequent strategies by government and non-government organizations is anticipated to drive the Piezoelectric ceramics industry expansion in the upcoming years.
