Global Glass Ceramics Market to Grow at a CAGR of 6.1% During the Period 2016 - 2020; Finds New Report

Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Global Glass Ceramics Market 2016 - 2020” research report to their website


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/12/2016 -- Report forecast the global glass ceramics market to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% during the period 2016-2020.

Glass ceramics are microcrystalline solids that are produced by the controlled devitrification of glass. Glasses are molten and fabricated to the required shape; they are finally converted by heat treatment to form a crystalline ceramic. Controlled crystallization lies in efficient internal nucleation, permitting the development of fine and randomly oriented grains without microcracks, voids, or other porosity. The ability to be formed into complex shapes by blowing, pressing, and rolling by employing a high-speed plastic forming processes that are used in glass industry is a significant advantage of glass ceramics over conventional ceramics.

The properties exhibited by glass ceramics depend upon the microstructure of the ceramics and the composition of the raw materials used. The bulk chemical compositions help in monitoring the ability to form a glass and its degree of workability.

Silicate-based wastes such as slag from steel production, coal combustion ash, filter dust from waste incinerators and fly ash, and mud from metal hydrometallurgy along with different forms of sludge and mixtures of glass cullet have been considered for the manufacture of glass ceramics.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global glass ceramics market for 2016-2020.

The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
- Europe
- North America

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.
