Product Insights:
Based on products, silicon carbide is segmented into types such as black, green, coated,
refractory, metallurgical briquettes, metallurgical, and micro grit. Among all, green and black are
the major product segments and are anticipated to experience stagnant growth in near future.
Demand for black silicon carbide is likely to boost over the forecast period on account of its
increasing usage in ceramic, refractory and steel industries.
End-Use Insights:
Steel and energy dominates the application segment and is expected to be the fastest growing
segments over the foreseeable future. Silicon carbide finds application in abrasive cloths and
paper products and in grinding wheels owing to its superior properties such as high thermal
resistance, hardness, and high temperature strength. Substituting pure silicon with silicon
carbide in semiconductors is a key factor expected to drive the demand for silicon carbide in
semiconductor and electronics industry. Electronics devices manufactured using silicon carbide
reduces electricity losses owing to switching and conduction thereby offering high efficiency.
This factor is anticipated to impact the market positively over the foreseeable future. Silicon
carbide also finds application in automotive industry as an oil additive and ceramic brake discs.
Growing automotive sector across the globe is expected to augment the market growth in near
Regional Insights:
Asia Pacific was the dominant regional market in 2014 and is expected to experience significant
growth over the next five years owing to growing steel and energy industry in the region.
