Quick Overview

This is the 2012 analysis on the global market for ceramic dielectric materials consumed in the electronic component industry, with emphasis upon dielectric material consumption in the massive ceramic chip capacitor and PTC thermistor markets worldwide. The market is viewed historically from 1999 to 2012 and offers strategic forecasts to 2017. The study looks at the market for feedstock materials, including barites and titanium feedstock materials markets, including availability assessments and pricing forecasts for critical mined materials; and also addresses the advanced intermediate markets for high purity barium carbonate and high purity titanium dioxide powders. The market assessment continues onward up the supply chain and includes advanced barium titanate production platforms including oxalate, hydrothermal, solid state, and sol-gel, and also looks at the separate formulations markets for COG, X7R, X5R, Y5V, Z5U and X8R dielectrics, and assesses the market for various rare earth and related material additives. Major focus is placed upon Ferro Corporation, Nippon Chemical Industrial, Sakai Chemical, Toho Titanium, Fuji Titanium, KCM Corporation, Prosperity Dielectrics, Solvay Chemicals, Rhodia LiYang, Samsung Fine Chemical, Sukgyung AT, Shandong Sinocera and many additional companies in the vertical supply chain for feedstock, intermediates, titantes, formulations and additives. An updated 2012 view of the global ceramic capacitor market and the global PTC thermistor market, including all major and minor component vendors is also included and subsequent forecasts to 2017 for merchant market and captive market consumption of BT, formulations and additives is also given in the 223 page landmark report.
