Silicon Carbide Market – Market Overview

Silicon Carbide is compound of silicon and carbon and is known as carborundum. It is a crystalline compound produced synthetically, and has potential to deliver high switching applications in extreme conditions.  Its applicability in extreme conditions has made it highly preferable in end use industries such as steel & energy, automotive, aerospace & defence, electronics & semiconductor, healthcare and others. 

Over the last seven years, the Global Silicon Carbide Market is expensing at significant annual growth rate and its increasing application scope complementing global demand. This market is expected to grow significantly over the review period by providing various growth opportunities. As silicon carbide is a hard compound and it is applicable in worst conditions, steel manufacturing considered as its key application area. Wherein, Southeast Asia expected to contribute major part of the regional growth. As per the World Steel Association, consumption of still totalled at 1,630 million tons in 2016, wherein, China acquired 45% of the global market. China expected to retain its dominance in the coming years due to industrial expansion. Arcelor Mittal, China Baowu Group, and HBIS Group are the major producers of steel in 2016. Steel consumption expected to continue complementing global demand for silicon carbide in the coming years as well.

Automotive industry is another major consumer of Silicon Carbide, which has been the game changer after 2011, for Silicon Carbide. . As per the OICA, China emerged as a global leader in the automotive production with annual growth of over 14%. The country alone produced 32.89 million vehicles including consumer & commercial by fuelling demand for Silicon Carbide. Furthermore, electronics & electrical industry expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities due to high end semiconductor applications silicon carbide.

Regionally, Asia Pacific acquired highest market shares and emerged as one of the most promising market across the globe. Industry experts sees the flourishing growth from this region due to the high production base and major industry expansions over the past years. As per the study revealed by the Market Research Future on silicon carbide, the market will be sharing humongous growth prospects in the coming years.
