  • The word ceramic is derived from the Greek word (keramikos). The term covers inorganic non-metallic materials whose formation is due to the action of heat. The word ceramic can be an adjective, and can also be used as a noun to refer to a ceramic material, or a product of ceramic manufacture. Ceramics is a singular noun referring to the art of making things out of ceramic materials.
  • The technology of manufacturing and usage of ceramic materials is part of the field of ceramic engineering. Many ceramic materials are hard, porous and brittle. The study and development of ceramics includes methods to mitigate problems associated with these characteristics, and to accentuate the strengths of the materials as well as to investigate novel applications.
  • The general process steps used in the production of ceramics include raw material processing, mixing, forming, shape drying, glazing, firing, and finishing. Raw material processing typically includes crushing, grinding, screening, drying, and granulation or powder formation. After initial processing, the raw materials are mixed and formed.
  • The market of ceramic and porcelain tableware in Japan has been stabilized at low levels. Tableware to be used as necessities of life is already saturated, and in the replacement demand due to damage, the imports from China dominate the market with its low price and usefulness, and accordingly it causes whole market’s price decline.
  • Sri Lanka has established a niche for itself in the global market for supplying a wide variety of ceramic products of different size, shape and shades, ranging from tableware to sanitary ware and glazed/polished tiles to ornamental ware. Today, Sri Lanka's ceramic products compete alongside ceramic giants such as Italy, Spain and others of similar standing such as China, Indonesia and Taiwan.
  • Ceramic Industry in India is about 100 years old. It comprises ceramic tiles, sanitary ware and crockery items. Ceramic products are manufactured both in the large and small-scale sector with wide variation in type, size, quality and standard. India ranks 7th in the world in term of production of ceramic tiles and produced 200 million sq. meters of ceramic tiles, out of a global production of 6400 million sq. meters during 2003-04. State-of-the-art ceramic goods are being manufactured in the country and the technology adopted by the Indian ceramic Industry is of international standard.
  •  The sample population characterized by small companies growing slowly and diversifying in small incremental changes. 64% of firms in the sample have reported an increase in the level of competition between 1996 and 2001. Among the main competitors, little over half of the firms have competitors overseas, whilst around 40% of the firms have local or competitors elsewhere in the UK.
