Global Zirconium Oxide Market: Outlook Continues to Remain Positive by 2016-2026

Zirconium oxide possess good ionic conductivity and low electronic conductivity, which makes it very useful for the manufacture of electro-ceramics and electrochromic devices.


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/17/2016 -- Zirconium oxide, commonly known as Zirconia (ZrO2), is a white crystalline oxide of zirconium which is majorly used in the production of advanced and technical ceramics. Zirconium oxide offers good chemical and corrosion inertness at very high temperatures along with very high mechanical strength and wear resistance. Due to such physical, chemical and mechanical properties, it is used as an important refractory material. It is also used in insulation, enamels and in the manufacture of abrasives.

Zirconium oxide exists in three different crystal phases at different temperatures. During the crystal phase change at varied temperatures, it loses some of its mechanical properties. The crystal structure of zirconium oxide is stabilized by introducing some effective dopants such as magnesium oxide, yttrium oxide etc. in order to sustain its high strength and other mechanical properties. Proper doping, along with maintaining continuous supply of raw materials, is one of the significant challenges faced by the market players in the global zirconium oxide market.
