The global ceramic balls market size was valued at USD 513.3 million in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 533.9 million in 2023 to USD 757.7 million by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 10.1% during the forecast period.
Ceramic balls are rolling, spherical elements providing lighter weight, higher rigidity, reduced thermal expansion, intensified resistance to corrosion, and more excellent electrical resistance than steel balls. They are produced from a mixture of several ceramic materials. A mixture of ceramic powder binder is pressed in a preformed shape for manufacturing; precision finishing and lapping are essential for determining product design and specifications. A combination of diverse ceramic compounds can be opted for producing these balls according to the requirements of the end-users. Some combinations are aluminum silicate, alumina-zirconia, aluminum nitride, silicon nitride, alumina, boron carbide, and boron nitride.
