Silicon carbide is synthetically produced crystalline compound of carbon and silicon carbide is not attacked by any alkalis, molten salts or acids. Silicon carbide’s superior properties like wear resistance, oxidation resistance, low thermal expansion and low density will impact the overall market over the forecast period. Increased demand for steel manufacturing and steel processing along with its recycling units is the major driver for the market.
Also, augmenting substitution for current pure technology semiconductors is anticipated to drive the market. Low level of tolerance and high precision required for manufacturing development are the restraining factor in the industry.
Full research report on Silicon carbide market analysis:
On the basis of different types of products, the market is segmented into categories like metallurgical, green, micro grit, black and metallurgical briquettes. Green and black silicon carbides are the dominant product segment in the silicon carbide industry. Rising use of black silicon carbide in ceramic, steel manufacturing, refractory and abrasive wheel market will increase the market demand over the coming years.
Fastest growing application segment in silicon carbide market are steel and energy. SiC are useful for furnace and bearings parts owing to the high sublimation temperature.
