Materials science and engineering is a multidisciplinary approach to science that involves designing, choosing, and using three major classes of materials—metals, ceramics, and polymers. Materials are so important in the development of civilization that we associate ages with them. In the origin of human life on Earth, the Stone Age, people used only natural materials, like stone, clay, skins, and wood. When people found copper and how to make it harder by alloying, the Bronze Age started about 3000 BC. The use of iron and steel, a stronger material that gave advantage in wars started at about 1200 BC. The next big step was the discovery of a cheap process to make steel around 1850, which enabled the railroads and the building of the modern infrastructure of the industrial world. The global market is projected to reach $6,000 million by 2020 and register a CAGR of 10.2% between 2015 and 2020 in terms of value. The growth in market is estimated to be driven by the increasing demand for aerogel materials from oil & gas and construction applications. The North American region remains the largest market, followed by Asia-Pacific. The Europe market is estimated to be growth at a steady rate due to economic recovery in the region along with the increasing concern for the building insulation and energy savings. The U.S. Bureau of Labour Statistics (BLS) produces annual wage estimates for more than 800 individual occupations. Newly released figures for 2012 put BLS Code 19-2032 (an occupational group encompassing materials scientists) in 82nd place in yearly wages. The group, which includes 7,970 employees across the country, posted an average annual salary of $89,740.

The nature of metals has fascinated mankind for many centuries, because these materials provided people with tools of unsurpassed properties both in war and in their preparation and processing. Sterling gold and silver were known to man since the Stone Age. Lead and silver were fused from their ores as early as the fourth millennium BC. The importance of metal varies for different groups. Case in point, stargazers utilize the sweeping term metal for comfort to aggregately portray all components other than hydrogen and helium which are the fundamental segments of stars, which thus embody the greater part of the noticeable matter in the universe. Hence, in cosmology and physical cosmology, the metallicity of an item is the extent of its matter made up of synthetic components other than hydrogen and helium. Also, numerous components and intensifies that are not regularly named metals get to be metallic under high weights; these are known as metallic allotrope of non-metals. An alloy is a mixture of either pure or fairly pure chemical elements, which forms an impure substance (admixture) that retains the characteristics of a metal. Transparency Market Research’s new market report, titled ‘High Performance Alloys Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020’, provides a detailed description of the high performance alloys market in terms of revenue (US$ million) and volume share (kilo tons) for the forecast period 2014-2020.

The earliest ceramics made by humans were pottery objects, including 27,000-year-old figurines, made from clay, either by itself or mixed with other materials like silica, hardened, sintered, in fire. Later ceramics were glazed and fired to create smooth, colored surfaces, decreasing porosity through the use of glassy, amorphous ceramic coatings on top of the crystalline ceramic substrates. Ceramics now include domestic, industrial and building products, as well as a wide range of ceramic art. In the 20th century, new ceramic materials were developed for use in advanced ceramic engineering, such as in semiconductors. Polymers are studied in the fields of biophysics and macromolecular science, and polymer science (which includes polymer chemistry and polymer physics). Historically, products arising from the linkage of repeating units by covalent chemical bonds have been the primary focus of polymer science; emerging important areas of the science now focus on non-covalent links. Composite materials are generally used for buildings, bridges and structures such as boat hulls, swimming pool panels, race car bodies, shower stalls, bathtubs, storage tanks, imitation granite and cultured marble sinks and counter tops. The most advanced examples perform routinely on spacecraft in demanding environments. Currently standing at USD 296.2 billion, the ceramics market is forecast to grow to USD 502.8 billion by 2020, as every industry achieves improved manufacturing efficiency along with high renewable energy efficiency. According to global market analysis, in 2014, the Composite materials industry is expected to generate revenue of approximately 156.12 billion U.S. dollars.

Materials Chemistry provides the link between atomic, molecular and supermolecular behaviour and the useful properties of a material. It lies at the core of many chemical-using industries. This deals with the atoms of the materials, and how they are arranged to give molecules, crystals, etc. Much of the electrical, magnetic and chemical properties of materials arise from this level of structure. The length scales involved are in angstroms. The way in which the atoms and molecules are bonded and arranged is fundamental to studying the properties and behaviour of any material. The forecast for R&D growth in the chemical and advanced materials industry reflects the improving global economy and the key markets the industry serves. U.S. R&D spending in chemicals and advanced materials is forecast to grow by 3.6% to reach $12 billion in 2014. Overall global R&D is forecast to grow at a slightly higher 4.7% rate to $45 billion in 2014.

During the past decade, the needs of the nation and the world have required civil engineers to also focus on the reuse of valuable materials and resources, which in turn has created exciting challenges in understanding how to chemically and mechanically stabilize these materials for reuse. Current challenges require the application of micromechanics, computer-assisted visualization tools, thermodynamics, kinetics, and an appreciation of construction processes to solve problems. Civil engineers have adapted and applied multidisciplinary principles to solve problems and have used similar approaches to those used in solid rocket propellants, adhesives, metals, and ceramics. One of the biggest boosts for the building materials sector is the seemingly endless raising of the bar by various national planning departments on “green” building. According a report on Forbes.com, which cites a research report from Navigant Research, the worldwide market for green construction materials will grow from US$116 billion in 2013 to in excess of US$254 billion by 2020. Europe, with its emphasis on reducing emissions, will probably be the largest regional market, accounting for around 50% of global demand for green building products by 2020. TechNavio produced a report, “Global green building material market 2012–2016,” in which it forecast demand growth globally to be around 17.9% compound annual growth rate.

Research into hydride materials for energy applications typically focuses on enhancing gravimetric storage density and ion transport of the materials. However, the requirements for stationary applications such as fuel cells can be significantly different and amenable to a broader class of potential materials. Multiple geophysical and social pressures are forcing a shift from fossil fuels to renewable and sustainable energy sources. To effect this change, we must create the materials that will support emergent energy technologies. Solar energy is the utmost priority to develop photovoltaic cells that are efficient and cost effective. The global market value of components for PEM fuel cell membrane electrode assembly (MEA) as BCC report is estimated $383 million in 2010. This market is expected to grow at a 20.6% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the 5-year forecast period to reach $977 million in 2015.

With the coming of the Industrial Revolution, humans were able to advance further into the 21st century. Technology developed rapidly, science became advanced and the manufacturing age came into view. With all of these came one more effect, industrial pollution. Earlier, industries were small factories that produced smoke as the main pollutant. However, since the number of factories were limited and worked only a certain number of hours a day, the levels of pollution did not grow significantly. But when these factories became full scale industries and manufacturing units, the issue of industrial pollution started to take on more importance. World Corrosion Organization (New York, N.Y.) says that the annual cost of corrosion worldwide is $2.2 trillion, more than 3 per cent of the world's gross domestic product (GDP). The U.S. Department of Defence has estimated the annual cost of corrosion in its military applications alone at more than $10 billion per year.

Instrumentation is the use of measuring instruments to monitor and control a process. It is the art and science of measurement and control of process variables within a production, laboratory, or manufacturing area. Instrumentation engineering is the engineering specialization focused on the principle and operation of measuring instruments that are used in design and configuration of automated systems in electrical, pneumatic domains etc. They typically work for industries with automated processes, such as chemical or manufacturing plants, with the goal of improving system productivity, reliability, safety, optimization, and stability. Due to the technological innovations and increased demand on the process control systems, the process automation market is gaining advantage in the recent years. BCC Research projects that the total global market for metamaterials is expected to grow from $289.2 million in 2013 to about $1.2 billion by 2019 and nearly $3.0 billion by 2024, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.5% between 2019 and 2024.
