Global Information Inc (GII) presents four significant market research reports from our premium research partner Global Industry Analysts, Inc. covering the highly competitive global markets for industrial rubber products, superhard materials, super-absorbent polymers and advanced ceramics.

Industrial Rubber Products

The global market for Industrial Rubber Products is projected to reach $101.6 billion by 2018, driven by high growth rates in developing economies, and the resurgence in major end-use markets. Strong surge in manufacturing activity across various industries, ranging from household appliances to construction machinery and automotive vehicles is expected to foster demand for Industrial Rubber Products, particularly in developing markets. Further, expanding application areas and increasing ease of processing are expected to favor market growth.

The industrial rubber products market is highly competitive with the top ten companies accounting for less than one-third of the global sales. Major players profiled in the report include Avon Rubber Plc, Bridgestone Corporation, Carlisle Companies Incorporated, ContiTech AG, Cooper-Standard Automotive Inc., Delphi Automotive PLC, Eaton Corporation, EnPro Industries Inc., Federal-Mogul Corporation, Fenner Plc, Freudenberg Group, Gates Corporation, Habasit AG, Henniges Automotive, Hutchinson S.A., JSJ Corporation, Meiji Rubber & Chemical Co. Ltd., Myers Industries Inc., NOK Corporation, Parker-Hannifin Corporation, Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd., The Yokohama Rubber Company Ltd., Tokai Rubber Industries Ltd., Toyo Tire and Rubber Co. Ltd., and Trelleborg AB, among others.

Superhard Materials

The global superhard materials market is projected to reach $20.2 billion by 2018, driven by healthy economic, industrial and manufacturing activity in developing countries and the ensuing increased demand for highly efficient metal machining, boring, grinding, and nonmetal machining tools.

Especially poised to gain are advanced ceramic materials. Advanced ceramics market has been witnessing growth in both traditional and new application areas. In traditional applications, growth comes from performance enhancement either through a supplementary role or through substitution of conventional materials, while in newer applications, advanced ceramics are assuming greater role of delivering specific performances not feasible earlier. As the new economy emerges from the current recession, factors such as, technology improvements, especially in the fracture properties of ceramics, and evolution of new high-temperature fibers based ceramic composites, will offer ample opportunities for growth. For instance, new-generation chemically bonded ceramics will gradually cannibalize plastics and metals in a wide gamut of end-use markets including construction applications such as in bridges, manufactured housing, and buildings. Chemically bonded ceramics will find extensive uses in advanced cement based construction products, such as, electrical fittings, wall panels, floors, roof tiles, cabinets and pipes.

Super-Absorbent Polymers

The global market for super-absorbent polymers (SAP) is projected to reach 2.5 million metric tons by 2018, driven by increasing demand from developing markets and new applications. A rapidly aging population, growing health awareness among consumers, and increasing demand for hygiene products are expected to boost the demand for SAP as a raw material.

Advanced Ceramics

The global market for advanced ceramics is projected to exceed $68 billion by the year 2018, driven primarily by recovery in the electronics end-use market, stringent environmental norms, technology improvements and evolution of new Advanced Ceramic composites. Advanced Ceramics are gaining wider usage at the cost of other alternatives in the electronic components market. Going forward, highest growth for Advanced Ceramics is predicted from the medical devices market.

Japan represents the largest regional market for advanced ceramics worldwide, with a history spanning well over three decades, as stated by the new market research report on Advanced Ceramics. The field of materials is one of the most important research areas in Japan, and advanced ceramics has always been given a high priority in research and development. Japan is also the largest producer of electronic devices such as mobile phones, pagers, and electronic gaming systems globally, which automatically makes it a potential-laden market for advanced ceramics that find application in such devices. The Asian markets of China, India, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand promise substantial growth potential at a robust pace of about 8% through 2018. In particular, China emerged as the world's largest exporter of advanced ceramics, specifically to the US market. The Chinese advanced ceramics market is witnessing significant growth, attributed to abundant chemicals and metallurgical base and governmental initiatives for development of the market.

By product, Monolithic Ceramics, which is the largest market segment, will continue to sustain its leadership position in the long term, primarily driven by rising usage in the medical sector. In the long-term, CMC or Ceramic Matrix Composites will witness rapid growth over the years, expanding at a strong CAGR of 9.8% through 2018, prompted by the growing usage in high temperature applications and those involving high rates of corrosion. CMCs reinforced with carbon nanotubes will also contribute to the overall demand growth.
