Glass-Ceramics Market Overview


Glass-Ceramics Market was valued at USD 779,413.3 Thousand in 2018 and is projected to register a CAGR of 5.86% to reach USD 779.4 Million by the end of 2028. Glass-ceramics, as the name suggests, combine the properties of both glass and polycrystalline ceramics. They are polycrystalline solid materials prepared by controlled crystallization of glass.


The factors driving the growth of the glass-ceramics market are increasing the application of glass-ceramics in the manufacturing household utensils and growing demand for the product in the building & construction industry. Furthermore, the ongoing research & development and clinical trials for incorporating glass-ceramics in the medical industry are expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for players operating in the glass-ceramics market during the forecast period.


However, the high cost of energy due to the high heating requirements during the glass-ceramics manufacturing process is projected to restrain the growth of the glass-ceramics market during the forecast period.


Market Dynamics


Glass-ceramics are nowadays increasingly used in the manufacturing of household utensils such as cooktops, stoves, microwave and fireplace doors, cookware, and bakeware, among others. The properties of glass-ceramics such as high mechanical strength, sustainability in changing temperatures, low heat conduction coefficient (stays cool outside the cooking area), and excellent aesthetic appeal have increased their application in the household utensils segment. Some of the renowned brands of glass-ceramics are Pyroceram (cookware), Ceran (cooktops), Eurokera (cooktops, stoves, and fireplaces), Zerodur (telescope mirrors), Macor (machinable glass-ceramics for industrial applications), Kanger (glass-ceramic for cooktop, stoves, microwaves, and fireplace doors), FireLite and NeoCeram (ceramic-glass for architectural and high-temperature applications), and Keralite (a specialty glass-ceramic for fire-rated applications). The increasing per-capita income, consumer purchasing power, changing lifestyles, and growing awareness are the major factors increasing the adoption of glass-ceramics-based household utensils across the globe. Thus, the increasing application of glass-ceramics in the manufacturing of utensils and their growing demand are expected to fuel the growth of the global market during the assessment period.
