Global ceramic machinery market share by product 2015

Shaping machinery


Glazing and decoration machinery


Raw material preparation machinery


Storage and handling machinery




The top three revenue contributing product segments are discussed below:

Shaping machinery market

In 2015, the shaping machinery accounted for around 30% share of the global ceramic machinery market. The shaping of ceramics involves several technologies such as injection molding, cold and hot isostatic pressing, pressure casting, uniaxial pressing, and tape casting among others. Among these technologies tape casting is a comparatively new shaping method, which was first introduced successfully to produce dielectric ceramic tapes. Slip casting, on the other hand, is the oldest method of producing ceramics, while uniaxial pressing is used to produce ceramic tiles, slabs or plates; these are characterized by a large pressing area and limited height.

To produce advanced ceramics, different shaping techniques such as casting, pressing, extrusion injection molding or sophisticated processes like rapid prototyping, freeze gelation, and many others are employed. Some of these technologies are extensively used and accepted while others are still undergoing development or are suitable only for laboratory scale or prototype manufacturing,” says Anju Ajaykumar, lead analyst at Technavio for research on engineering tools.

Glazing and decoration machinery market

Glazing and decorating machines find huge applications in the ceramic tableware industry. Tableware refers to articles used in setting a table for a meal that includes silverware, dishes, glassware, and crystal ware. Increasing focus on visual appeal and presentation as the finishing touches to culinary skills and the growing inclination for trendy lifestyles will drive growth in the ceramic tableware market. The other factors determining growth in the market for tableware will be the rise in demand for vintage-style glassware and dinnerware and a shift in preference from white bone china to natural shades. The rising demand for ceramic tableware will affect the growth of decoration and glazing machines, resulting in the increased demand for these machines, further propelling the overall market growth.

Raw material preparation machinery market

The dispensation of raw ceramics into ceramic products requires the preparation of raw materials, mainly ceramic powders, and the type of powder preparation depends on the application and quality of the product. Raw materials such as zircon and quartz are used for the preparation of ceramic powder. Ceramic powder processing can be broadly classified into two categories such as chemical processing of powders and direct contact of particles with some agents known as mechanical preparation. The mechanical preparation methods comprise crushing, milling in a ball mill or grinding ceramic raw materials into smaller particles. A ball mill is a machine with a revolving hollow cylinder partly filled with steel or white cast iron balls. Depending on the amount of ceramic powder and its properties, different types of mills are used for dry and wet grinding.
