      Three generally accepted generic groups of competitive engineering materials—metals, inorganic ceramics, as well as plastics and polymers belonging to the organic family—have been comparatively reviewed in the context of raw materials availability, energy requirements in production, engineering properties, combustibility and environmental friendliness. The intrinsic advantages of inorganic materials have been discussed. The shortcomings of engineering properties of inorganic materials and the new technologies of making chemically bonded ceramics or biomimic compounds from inorganic materials with improved toughness have been dealt with. The expanding application horizons of inorganic materials have been illustrated with the help of several novel products.
