top zirconium oxide companies


Saint-Gobain ZirPro, Imerys S.A., Tateho Chemical Industries Co., Ltd., Luxfer MEL Technologies, and Astron Limited, among others, are the major players in the global market for zirconium oxide.


The global zirconium oxide market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5% in the forecast period of 2022-2027. As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, the global zirconium oxide market is being aided by the growth of the zirconium market.


White crystalline zirconium oxide, also referred to as zirconia (ZrO2) and mostly utilised in the production of contemporary ceramics, is referred to as zirconium oxide. Good chemical and corrosion inertness are properties of zirconium oxide. Additionally, it possesses strong mechanical strength and high-temperature wear resistance. Due to its unique physical, chemical, and mechanical characteristics, it is utilised as a fundamental refractory material.


The regions of North America and Asia Pacific are one of the significant contributors to the growth of the zirconium oxide industry because there is a growing demand for the product in these regions. The thriving dental implants sector is also responsible for uplifting the global market and will further grow due to the rising dental health awareness. The industry's manufacturing processes have changed as a result of the product's increasing demand. The market is also anticipated to benefit from the sector's expanding need for nuclear energy.


During the forecast period, Asia Pacific is expected to be one of the leading consumers of zirconium oxide due to a significant rise in the demand for foundries and mineral ceramics in the region. The market is further expected to grow owing to the new industrial applications of zirconium oxide like knives and scissors. In the upcoming years, market growth is anticipated to be further boosted by the expanding demand from the electronics industries.
