2017 CI Top 14
We were able to source so much more information this year that we expanded the list from the traditional 12 companies to 14.
Welcome to the 2017 CI Top 14, our fifth annual exclusive ranking of the leading worldwide manufacturers of advanced ceramics, glasses and refractories! To compile the CI Top 14, we evaluated information supplied by company contacts, along with additional details from company websites, annual reports, and press releases. We were able to source so much additional information this year that we expanded the list from the traditional 12 companies to 14. I’d like to take a moment to thank the companies that provided details for the ranking this year. We couldn’t do it without you!
Information such as annual sales, number of employees/facilities, and R&D spending are included (where available), along with news highlights of recent company activities. Whenever possible, all information was reviewed and verified. In cases where specific and verifiable information was not readily available, some companies unfortunately had to be left out. (Pertinent details, including sales figures, can be withheld from publication for private companies upon request. However, the information must be provided for consideration.)
The companies included in the ranking highlight the ongoing technical achievements of the “advanced” sectors of our industry. These manufacturers provide key advanced technologies and products for industries ranging from automotive and aerospace to electronics, security and defense, and medical/dental.
