Global ceramic balls market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9% during the forecast period. Ceramic balls are composed of non-metallic, inorganic compounds which include carbides, oxides, or nitrides. These balls are then processed and used at high temperatures. Ceramic balls are lightweight, stiff, smooth, hard, resistant to corrosion & heat, durable and require less lubrication as compared to their steel counterparts. Owing to their superior properties, ceramic balls are substituting steel and other metal & alloys. This, in turn, is driving the ceramic balls market. Additionally, factors such as increasing investment in chemical industry, rising demand in the automotive and aerospace industries, exceptional properties of ceramic balls are further anticipated to foster the growth of global ceramic balls market during forecast period.

Global ceramic balls market is segmented based on function, material, application, end -user and company. Based on material, the market can be segmented into silicon, zirconia, alumina and others. The silicon based ceramic balls market is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Resistance to high temperature, corrosion and heat facilitates their use in various end-user industries, thereby driving their demand.  Based on application, the global ceramic balls market can be segregated into bearing, grinding, valve, and others. The bearing segment is expected to dominate the market and register the highest growth during forecast period as well. Shock resistance properties of ceramic balls make them ideal for bearing application. On the basis of end-user, the market can be categorized into automotive, chemical, aerospace and others. Automotive sector leads global ceramic balls market followed by aerospace sector. Properties such as lightweight and resistance to corrosion & heat have increased the demand for ceramic balls in the automotive industry. Moreover, the aerospace industry is anticipated to grow at the fastest pace during the forecast period.

Regionally, the ceramic balls market is gaining traction and expanding to various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, Asia-Pacific dominates global ceramic balls market on account of expansion of automotive industries in India, China and Japan and presence of well-established manufacturers in this region. Europe is the second largest market for ceramic balls. European ceramic balls market is anticipated to grow at a faster pace during the forecast period.
