According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Automotive Ceramics Market is accounted for $2.42 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $3.95 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period. Automotive ceramics are substances used to create parts for vehicles. Spark plug insulators, catalyst and catalysts for emission control systems, including various kinds of sensors are a few examples of automotive ceramics. Automotive ceramics are primarily employed as pressure and heat sensors as well as supporting facilities for catalytic converter elements.

According to statistics provided by the International Organization of Motor Automobiles, the overall number of vehicles produced in the region in 2021 was 46 million, whilst the total number of vehicles sold in the region was 42 million. Moreover, the China exported approximately 402,000 commercial cars and 2 million passenger automobiles in 2021.


Market Dynamics:


Bolstering Growth of the Electric Vehicles

Due to reasons including an increase in incentives and incentives for the promotion of electric vehicles, the focus on producing no carbon dioxide or other harmful gases, and the most recent technological advancements, the market for electric vehicles is expanding significantly. As a result, the use of automotive ceramics for energy storage device, spark plugs, and other automotive components is expanding along with the production and use of electric vehicles, which is boosting the market and increasing demand for automotive ceramics.


High Costs

Compared to other metals and alloys, automotive ceramics have a higher material cost. Due to the significant effects of the rise in gas costs, the production of automotive ceramics is an expensive process. Due to an increase in the cost of raw ingredients, titanium oxide ceramic prices increased. The automotive ceramics business is thus faced with a slowdown and hindrance in production trends as a result of an increase in costs for major ceramic materials as a result of demand and supply shifts, thus facing a significant problem in the market.


Growth in Population across the World

Worldwide demand for vehicles is being driven by the recent industrialization and rapid population growth. In order to boost durability, improve aesthetics, and improve on-road performance, automotive ceramics are thus predicted to become more and more necessary as vehicle demand rises. Therefore, it is anticipated that the market will develop during the time of assessment due to the population's rapid growth.


High capital expenditure

The high cost of designing and developing automotive ceramics during the projection period restrains the market's expansion. Ceramic automobile component development is a highly capital-intensive endeavour that calls for significant R&D spending. The major competitors in this sector have positioned themselves in each of the important geographic areas. They have also been able to reduce production costs overall development effort through forward integration, which involves the acquisition of ceramic material, design, plus fabrication of ceramic components. As a result, they are now highly competitive.

Covid-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted the whole supply chain for the automotive industry, from the sourcing of raw materials to the final consumer, making it one of the worst-affected sectors of the economy. The shutdown of activities has a significant impact on the supply of ceramic materials for automotive ceramics. Consumer spending habits changed as a result of consumers delaying the purchase of new vehicles in an effort to reduce spending. All of the vehicle manufacturing companies lost money as a result of the fall in automotive sales. Their quarterly sales showed a drop in consumer demand. Major automakers have temporarily halted manufacturing of automobiles and their components at a few factories.

The Alumina segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The Alumina segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. Alumina oxide ceramics are in great demand because of their beneficial characteristics including exceptional insulation system, thermal shock resistance, and cost benefits. Because alumina oxide has such superior benefits over other varieties, it is being used more frequently in automotive for sensors, electronic parts, lighting systems, and thermal barrier coatings to increase fuel efficiency and lighten the body of the car. The thermal efficiency of the car is improved by alumina oxide ceramics, making them a better choice for a variety of automotive applications. Alumina oxide ceramics therefore hold dominance and significant development opportunities in the automotive ceramics market throughout the projection period due to the rise in demand & preference for alumina ceramics in the automobile sector as a result of their great benefits over other types.

The passenger vehicles segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The passenger vehicles segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to the strong demand for lightweight cars, increased production of electric motorised vehicles, increasing demand for two-wheelers, three-wheelers, and other forms of personal transportation, and growing middle-class preference, the passenger vehicle market is expanding quickly. Therefore, it is anticipated that with increased passenger vehicle production and demand, advanced automotive ceramics will be used more frequently for insulation rings, interior components, valves, and other applications. This will increase market demand and lead to substantial growth in the passenger vehicles segment over the course of the forecast period.

Region with highest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to a surge in vehicle demand brought on by the region's expanding population and an increase in automobile exports. The market is growing quickly because of the economy's rapid expansion and the citizens' quick rise in purchasing power. Developing nations also present profitable growth opportunities.

Region with highest CAGR:

North America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to government restrictions on gasoline emissions, increased demand for automobiles, particularly for passenger cars, and strict rules to regulate vehicle emissions are likely to boost demand for ceramics. The region's market revenue growth is supported by the presence of automobile manufacturers.
