Zirconium Dioxide which is also known as zirconia is crystalline solid which has exceptional toughness, biocompatibility, exceptional strength, high fatigue and wear resistance. Its chemical inertness, high thermal stability, superior quality and corrosion resistance has promoted its application in pigments, electronics, coatings, ceramics and medical products.
Positive indicators towards zirconium dioxide in refractory purposes owing to its high temperature resistance which makes it suitable for furnaces, crucibles and high heat environment which will propel industry growth. Refractory bricks and armour plates are well known refractory applications of zirconium dioxide. Growing potential in thermal barrier coatings mainly in aviation and automotive industry mainly in high temperature setting such as jet engines will further escalate industry growth. Zirconium oxide is stable in presence of oxygen which makes it suitable for fuel cell membranes and oxygen sensing mechanisms at elevated temperatures.
The report analyses the global zirconium dioxide market based on purity, form, product, application and geography
The purity segment consists of 99% and >99%. Growing demand for 99% purity zirconia in waterproof clothing, sanitary ware, tableware and optical fibre industries is likely to enhance market size. These materials act as a vital ingredient of optical fibre connectors including ferrules and ceramic sleeves due to its resistance to wear and desirable surface finishing properties. Increase in demand for sanitary ware in modern construction and hospitality industry will escalate market growth.
Various forms segmented in the market include synthetic and fused
The product segment comprises of partially stabilized, fully stabilized, toughened ceramic, transformation toughened zirconia, and zirconia toughened alumina. Partially stabilised zirconia has exceptionally mechanical properties along with chemical inertness which offers high levels of stability, even in harsh environment. It acts as a potential alternative for alumina in biomedical applications such as superior mechanical properties which is comparable with teeth in terms of mechanical strength. These factors will promote product demand.
Furthermore, the major application considered in the study is dental, electronic, fuel cells, paints, automobiles, ceramics, jewellery, refractive purposes. Increasing application potential in jewellery application as a viable alternative to diamond will stimulate market growth. Cubic zirconia has produces cuts like diamonds and has optical flawlessness along with strong aesthetic appeal and durability like diamond.
The global market is studied for the key regions such as, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World. North America is a lucrative market for zirconium dioxide market and is expected to witness strong gains over the forecast timeframe. High healthcare spending mainly in U.S. supported by increase in consciousness towards aesthetic physical appearance has led to rise in demand for dental implants will favour industry growth. Rising prevalence of dental disorders supported by implementation of digital technology to manufacture custom fitting comfortable implants will further drive dental implant market in this region, thus promoting product demand.
