Advanced structural ceramics’ unparalleled combination of stiffness, hardness, light weight, and high-temperature stability tease the potential to replace metals in demanding applications. However, commercial deployment has long been hamstrung by high processing costs and unpredictable brittle failure modes. Large corporations have historically dominated development, but innovative start-ups bubble beneath the surface, creating a route for aspiring companies to enter the space or enhance their portfolios. Current and budding participants need know where structural ceramics can address unmet needs and improve performance. To guide clients, we created a heat map that shows the significance of given properties in various applications, created a spider plot that maps how valuable overcoming a given challenge is to driving adoption, and employed the Lux Innovation Grid to identify which start-ups make for the most attractive partnership candidates.
