Global Roadmap for Ceramics and Glass Technology

Conference Series Ltd is pleased to announce the 3rd International Conference and Expo on Ceramics and Composite Materials scheduled for June 26-27, 2017 at Madrid, Spain with the theme “Sustainable Composite Solutions to Global Challenges”.

Ceramics are considered as most emerging materials dominant over the last 30 years. Technical ceramics have been increased over the time period leading to enormous growth in today’s world and penetrating the market relentlessly. Ceramic matrix composites are used in high temperature and structural applications as promising materials because of their high strength to density ratios.

Ceramics conference is applicable for broad range of International audience and industry leads in promoting their research. Worldwide Ceramics Markets are increasingly diversified, poised to represent significant size as every segment continues to grow. Ceramics covers a broad range of sectors within the building industry. Ceramics sub-sectors are being impacted by the need for the availability of raw materials and the high costs of energy. As solar energy becomes available, competitive, and affordable by 2016, this is set to create vast market shifts in the ceramics markets.

The cost structures of energy-intensive ceramics producers are impacted by increasing fuel prices. The ceramics manufacturing process needs efficient energy. High energy costs for manufacturing is changing markets, hindering the competitiveness of ceramics producers without access to cheap fuels. The price of energy has risen. Ceramics sectors substantially mirror the change in the price of crude oil. Energy costs account for a measurable share of operating costs.

Consideration of ceramics market forecasts indicates that markets at $296.2 billion in 2014 would reach $502.8 billion by 2020.

The U.S. composite materials industry grew 5.6 percent in 2015 in terms of dollars shipped and reached $7.5 billion overall. Looking ahead, the key economic indicators and market dynamics suggest 2016 growth at approximately 5.4 percent to reach $7.9 billion. Approximately 5.7 billion pounds of composite materials were shipped in the U.S. in 2015 and that number is forecast to grow to 6.9 billion pounds in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.2 percent.
