Electronic ceramics are already a major part of the technical ceramics industry. This may not seem surprising until it is realized that 25 years ago few could have predicted the existence or significance of the term “electronic ceramics.” Of course, the growth of the electronics industry with all its amazing new technology would have been even more difficult to predict. The growth of microelectronics technology has obviously created demands for ceramic materials in shapes and specifications previously unknown.
