Ceramic & Glass

 Latest update: March 2022 

Japan’s ceramic companies and research institutes demonstrated their ability to advance traditional crafts, fine ceramics, and glassmaking. Recently this industry has found new applications in the automotive and aerospace sectors and the production of technological devices. Japan's ceramic and glass production has a large share in the global market, and domestic demand for high-tech materials like bioceramics is increasing steadily. Manufacturers also are increasingly expanding their business overseas and investing in smart technologies for automotive applications in the glass sector.  Moreover, both sectors encourage sustainable industry and green business practices.
