Mankind is always involved in the search for smart multifunctional material with superior physical and engineering properties compared to existing material for better performance in diverse fields. Due to a lack of researchers’ interest, details of ceramics processing/fabrication, manufacturing were difficult. The properties of Ceramics depend on its microstructure obtained after its processing or fabrication so the control of fundamental microstructure has great importance for all ceramics behavior and its application. Understanding the manufacturing technology, processing science, and materials reaction to external spurs to cope with the desired shape, structure, and other traits helps to transfer the ceramics material into the value-added artifact. Thus strong and continuous effort is required for the continuous improvement of ceramics material in the field of Science and Engineering.`
