Earthenware is a type of pottery that is fired at low temperatures, which means that its mineral components do not vitrify, or turn into glass. As a result, it is porous and opaque, and it retains a rich clay color. Earthenware has been made for over 9,000 years all over the world, and it continues to be a popular type of pottery. Many traditional pottery styles use it, including brightly colored Mexican pottery, Japanese raku, and terra cotta.
Earthenware is made by heating the clay at a range of 1000 and 1150 degrees Celsius and gloss fired from 950 to 1050 degree celcius. The blend of materials in earthenware varies, depending on the region, but it generally includes minerals such as feldspar, quartz, ball clay, and china clay or kaolin. Earthenware is less expensive than porcelain but they can also break easily as they are prepared at a temperature lower than porcelain. Earthenware is widely used in art ware, tableware, and other home decorative items.
There are several types of pottery at present, including terracotta, creamware, victorian majolica, faience, tin-glazed pottery, yellowware, ironstone ware, raku and delftware among others.
The global earthenware market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2016 to 2020. In terms of region, Asia-Pacific is the largest market of earthenware.
Some of the major players in the market include Asahi Glass (Japan), Kyocera (Japan), Ceradyne (U.S.), CeramTec (Germany), CoorsTek (U.S.), Stryker (U.S.).
