The Excellent Features of Technical Ceramics and Continuous Expand of Downstream Market as well as Positive Policies Will Drive the Development of this Industry

Technical ceramics are the introduction of new materials into the ceramic manufacturing process to produce ceramic materials with advanced and special properties. This kind of ceramic is characterized by high wear resistance, cold resistance, heat resistance and corrosion resistance, as well as extremely high durability and hardness. They are used in various applications in the electronics, machinery, automotive and industrial processing industries. In essence, technical ceramics have the standard properties of traditional ceramics and improve their overall toughness and usability.

High-temperature technical ceramics are defined as ceramics which can be used at medium to high temperatures, low to higher stresses. including mainly high melting metal oxides, nitrides, carbides and their composites. Technical ceramics combine high strength and toughness with an extreme hardness to give excellent wear resistance. Ceramics used most for wear-protection are dense or lowporous alumina, zirconia, and some other oxide-based ceramics, non-oxide ceramics such as carbides, borides, nitrides, and some others. These materials have excellent high-temperature properties and are resistant to corrosion by many acids and alkalis which allows them to find numerous wear resistance applications. Electronic technical ceramics are used in the components of active and passive devices that enable high-performance electronics to be used in all kinds of environments and applications, in aerospace, automotive, communications, computers, medical, and a large variety of electronic instruments, industrial equipment, and consumer appliances.

Tremendous wear resistance, temperature resistance and a high level of corrosion resistance make technical ceramics a safe alternative to other materials in equipment, mechanical and plant engineering. In industrial applications,whether in forming, chemical or in precision engineering, technical ceramics products make a contribution to increasing the operating life and performance capability of machines and systems. Technical Ceramics could be made into components for automobiles for its mechanical strength and thermal and electrical properties. Examples include spark plug insulators, catalysts and catalyst supports for emission control devices, and sensors of various kinds. Products made of technical ceramics are components in the construction and control of sophisticated plants, machinery, and equipment with electrotechnical component assemblies. A special feature of this class of materials is the wide range of electrical conductivity. Besides the electrical properties, magnetic properties are often required. Compared with metallic materials, they often enable smaller product sizes and therefore more economically attractive products.

The Current Situation of China Technical Ceramics Industry Development

East China was the largest revenue market with a market share of 38.45% in 2015 and 37.40% in 2020 with a decrease of 1.05%. South China ranked the second market with the market share of 25.77% in 2019. East China has superior natural environmental conditions, rich product resources, developed commodity production, and a complete range of industries. It is the region with the highest level of comprehensive technology in China and the region with the most developed economy and culture in China.

China is the first country to be affected by COVID-19 and its related lockdown. By the first quarter of 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, production facilities of China have been closed and production has ceased. Therefore, this will hinder the technical ceramic production. But it is also the first country to escape the blockade. In the second quarter of 2020, manufacturing plants have resumed operations, and manufacturing activities are accelerating. In addition, a large part of China economy is related to import and export, and global demand is still low due to the prohibition of sales in various countries. The outbreak of COVID-19 in 2019 has had a negative impact on manufacturing industry of China in 2020 and has caused a huge blow to the production and supply of technical ceramics.

The Excellent Features of Technical Ceramics and Continuous Expand of Downstream Market as well as Positive Policies Will Drive the Development of this Industry

The various characteristics of technical ceramics have been popularized in different end uses, which in turn is expected to have a positive impact on the technical ceramics industry. Due to its high hardness and low weight, technical ceramics are increasingly being used in various industries. These applications are applications with performance and long life that other materials cannot match. Many industrial ceramics can withstand high temperatures while still maintaining their mechanical and electrical properties. This characteristic makes ceramics suitable for use in high-temperature applications such as furnaces, jet engines, braking systems and cutting tools. In addition, technical ceramics are excellent electrical insulators. They are particularly suitable for high-temperature applications where the mechanical and thermal properties of other materials tend to decrease. Some ceramics have low electrical losses and high dielectric constants. These are commonly used in electronic applications such as capacitors and resonators. In addition, the ability to combine insulators with structural components has led to many product innovations. Due to its outstanding functional characteristics, technical ceramics may replace traditional materials to a large extent, which will promote the downstream demand for technical ceramics.

The application of technical ceramics in the 5G industry will gradually expand with the development of 5G market. As the category with the largest market share of technical ceramics, electronic ceramics will play a huge role in the 5G industry. Dielectric filters are more excellent in product performance, smaller in size, and lower in power consumption. Ceramic dielectric filters are expected to become the mainstream choice for low and medium frequency bands in the 5G era with their mature industrial chain and cost-effective advantages. In the 5G era, mobile phone back cover materials will mainly use plastic, glass and ceramics. Among them, plastic has the worst appearance and feel and has the lowest cost. It will become the first choice for low-end mobile phones. Compared with glass, ceramics have a more high-end feel and appearance, better heat dissipation and hardness, and the penetration rate in high-end models is expected to increase significantly.

The Chinese government included the new material industry including technical ceramics into the (13th Five-Year Plan) national strategic development plan. The new material industry is one of seven strategic and emerging industries of China one of the ten key development areas of (Made in China 2025). The Chinese government has established an insurance compensation mechanism for the first batch of new materials and has carried out pilot work. The first batch of new materials is the same type and technology that users purchase and use within the first year of the (Key New Materials First Batch Application Demonstration Catalog) For new material products with specifications and parameters, companies that use the first batch of new materials are the beneficiaries of the insurance. It aims to use insurance methods to make institutional arrangements for the risk control and sharing of new material applications, break through the market bottleneck in the initial stage of new material application, and activate the effective demand for new material products in downstream industries. In addition, local governments at all levels in China have also issued policy support for the development of the technical ceramic industry. Hunan Province has clearly focused a number of special funds on the technical ceramic industry; increased support for the construction of advanced ceramic industry chains and public service platforms; supported technical ceramic material cooperation projects and achievement transformation projects to promote the technical ceramic industry Accelerated development. It is predicted that the market value of China technical ceramics industry will reach 2541.11M USD.
