Sapphire is the fastest-growing material for optical ceramics owing to the presence of a large number of manufacturers producing this material. Sapphire (single crystal aluminum oxide) is primarily used where standard glass and technical ceramics cannot meet the high transparency demand of specific applications. It possesses exceptional optical properties such as high ultraviolet and infrared optical characteristics, high wear & scratch resistance, and high thermal conductivity & co-efficiency of linear expansion, among others. Sapphire is most widely preferred optical ceramics material owing to its easy availability, ease of manufacturing, and suitability for a wide range of optical applications. Demand for synthetic sapphire is gaining significant momentum for production of optical windows due to its excellent scratch-resistant properties and exceptional transparency to the wavelength of light. Innumerable properties of sapphire contribute to its wide use in the optical ceramics market.

Optics & optoelectronics is the fastest-growing end-use industry of optical ceramics. Optical ceramics are used in lamps (primarily LEDs), CMOS (complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor) image sensors, laser pick-ups, CCD (charge-coupled devices) image sensors, displays, couplers, infrared, and laser transmitters. Consumption of these optical components is increasing as optoelectronics sales are getting a remarkable enhancement due to the growing demand for light sensors, which are used in smart watches and smartphones for proximity detection, heart rate monitoring, and color sensing. The increasing usage of optical ceramics in these products has led to the growth of the market in the optics & optoelectronics segment.

The market size of optical ceramics is estimated at USD 148 million in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 297 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 15%, between 2018 and 2023. The global optical ceramics market is driven by the increasing defense expenditure on advanced materials and technologies. Optical ceramics are used as a substitute for glass, metals, and plastics, which is boosting the market.

Optical ceramics are defined as transparent or translucent polycrystalline ceramics that are used in optical applications. They derive their effectiveness from their reaction to infrared, optical, and ultraviolet light. The use of optical ceramics, as an essential material in the production of optical components, in optoelectronics, and aerospace and defense & security industries is increasing significantly.
The key players in the optical ceramics market include Surmet Corporation (US), CeramTec (Germany), II-VI Optical Systems (US), Schott AG (Germany), CeraNova (US), CoorsTek (US), Kyocera (Japan), Saint- Gobain (France), Konoshima Chemicals (Japan), and Murata Manufacturing (Japan). The optical ceramics market report analyzes the key growth strategies adopted by the leading market players between 2013 and 2019, which include expansion, new product launch, and merger & acquisition.
