Market Insights

Growing application of ceramic balls in medical industry provides opportunity for the Ceramic Balls market growth

The expansion of applications of ceramic balls is anticipated to provide a huge developing potential for the ceramic balls market in the future. The companies have realized the immense potential regarding the usage of ceramic balls in the medical industry. The companies such as CoorsTek, Inc., MetalBall, Industrial Tectonics Inc., and Toshiba Materials Co., Ltd., are few of the companies that are offering ceramic balls for medical applications. Increase in acceptance of ceramic balls in the medical industry for diagnostic & laboratory equipment and surgical & dental tools are expected to provide substantial growth opportunity to the industry players in the coming future.

High initial cost associated with the use of ceramic balls is projected to restrict market growth

Currently, ceramic balls are replacing other metal balls in several end-use applications owing to their valuable properties of superior heat & corrosion resistance, higher operating speed, and high long term performance. Owing to these properties, ceramic balls are becoming an effective alternative for other metal balls. However, the initial cost associated with the use of ceramic bearings is higher than traditional steel ball bearings. Also, their superior efficiency and long term performance validate the cost for these bearings. Also, the manufacturing of the ceramic balls is relatively expensive as compared to steel and other metal balls which may restrain the ceramic balls market growth. However, enhancement in manufacturing processes of ceramic balls in coming years may reduce the cost of ceramic balls and provide a lucrative opportunity for ceramic balls market over the forecast period.

 

Material Insights

The North America ceramic balls market by material has been segmented into zirconia, silicon, alumina, and others. The alumina ceramic balls market segment dominated the North America ceramic balls market. Alumina ceramic balls are also used in various industries such as enamel, glass, and chemical industry for fine machining or further processing. These balls can be used at a very high temperature and extreme conditions. It is owing to these properties they are used in applications such as chemical pumps, down-hole pumps, valves, bearings, gauges, flow meters, etc. which further boost the ceramic balls market.

 

Application Insights

On the basis of application, the North America ceramic balls market has been segmented into aerospace, automotive, chemical, and others. Under application segment, automotive is the leading segment in the North America ceramic balls market. The highest share in the automotive segment is mainly attributed to the high demand and production of the vehicle in this region. For instance, North America has a leverage of developed automotive market and therefore considered to be one of the largest commercial vehicle production and sales nations throughout the world. Mexico has produced a total of USD 92Bn of auto parts for the OEMs and aftermarket clientele in 2017. This factors provides a huge development opportunity for ceramic balls market players from the automotive industry.
