Importance & Scope:
Over the last thirty years composite materials, plastics and ceramics have been the dominant emerging materials. The volume and number of applications of composite materials have grown steadily, penetrating and conquering new markets relentlessly. Modern composite materials constitute a significant proportion of the engineered materials market ranging from everyday products to sophisticated niche applications.
Madrid is the capital of Spain, and the largest municipality of the Community. The population of the city is almost 3.2 million with a metropolitan area population of approximately 6.5 million. It is the third-largest city in the European Union, after London and Berlin, and its metropolitan area is the third-largest in the European Union after London and Paris. Located in south-western Europe, the city spans a total of 604.3 km2 (233.3 sq mi).
The Madrid urban agglomeration has the third-largest GDP in the European Union and its influences in politics, education, entertainment, environment, media, fashion, science, culture, and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world's major global cities. Madrid houses the headquarters of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), belonging to the United Nations Organization (UN), the SEGIB, the Organization of Ibero-American States (OEI), and the Public Interest Oversight Board (PIOB). It also hosts major international regulators of Spanish: the Standing Committee of the Association of Spanish Language Academies, headquarters of the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE), the Cervantes Institute and the Foundation of Urgent Spanish (Fundéu BBVA).

Glance at Market of Ceramics and Composite Materials
Asia-Pacific is the biggest as well as the fastest growing market for technical ceramics, having a significant share of about 39.74% of the total market in 2013. Among various major product types of technical ceramics; monolithic ceramics dominates the market with nearly 66.20% of the total technical ceramics market share in 2013. Ceramic matrix composite is another major product segment and is expected to grow significantly, from 2014 to 2019.
Ceramics world market is increasingly diversified, expected to represent considerable size as every segment keeps on growing. Currently standing at USD 296.2 billion, the ceramics market is forecast to grow to USD 502.8 billion by 2020, as every industry achieves improved manufacturing efficiency along with high renewable energy efficiency.
In the composites industry, one of the best ways to judge success is to look at end product demand. The demand for composite end products – ranging from utilitarian underground pipes to high-performance aircraft – reached $21.2 billion in 2014 and stayed the course in 2015, reaching $22.2 billion.
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.
Projected Market Growth of Ceramics and Composite Materials
Medical and Dental market to be fastest growing. New bioceramic applications such as knee, orbital eye, and dental implants will help drive the medical product market at a double-digit annual pace over the forecast period, the fastest pace of any market.
The total technical and advanced structural ceramics market in North America was worth $3.2 billion in 2010 and $3.4 billion in 2011. This figure is projected to reach $4.4 billion in 2016 yielding a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1% between 2011 and 2016. Demand for advanced ceramics in the US is forecast to rise more than five percent annually to $13.5 billion in 2017.
The automotive composite materials market size, by value, is projected to grow at a CAGR of 12.94% from 2015 to 2020, and reach USD 11.26 Billion by 2020. The report considers 2014 as the base year and 2015 to 2020 as forecast period. The report segments the automotive composite materials market into different materials types, namely, polymer matrix composites (PMC), metal matrix composites (CMC), and ceramic matrix composites (CMC).
