Global optical ceramics market is expected to grow at CAGR of 15% during the forecast period. The global optical ceramics market is driven by increasing expenditure on new innovations and use of optical ceramics as a substitute of glass, metals and plastics. Optical ceramic is an advanced, long lasting crystalline, durable, industrial material which has great optical transparency in the ultraviolet, infrared and visible region. It is fabricated using proprietary powder processing technique. The possibility of production of reasonably priced and large sized materials are the major advantages of optical ceramics.

Global optical ceramics market is segmented based on material type, application, end-user, region and company. Based on material type, the market can be segmented into Sapphire, Phosphor, Alumina, Selenide, Oxynitride, Spinel, Yttrium Aluminium Garnet [YAG] and Others. Sapphire is estimated to dominate the market during the forecast period on account of presence of a large number of manufacturers of this material in the market. Sapphire is the most preferred optical ceramics material owing to its easy availability, ease of manufacturing, and suitability for a wide range of optical applications. Based on end user industry, the market can be categorized into Optics & Optoelectronics, Aerospace & Defense, Electronics & Semiconductor, Energy, Healthcare and Mechanical/Chemical. Owing to the excellent optical properties and high ultraviolet & infrared optical characteristics, the optics and optoelectronics segment is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Regionally, global optical ceramics market has been segmented into various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, North America region dominates the overall optical ceramics market. Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing market in terms of production and demand. Increasing manufacturing of optoelectronic devices using materials such as sapphire and Yttrium aluminium garnet in countries like Japan, China, and India is anticipated to further drive the Asia-Pacific optical ceramics market.
