Carborundum Market Overview


The Carborundum (or silicon carbide SiC) Market is expected to reach to over USD 6.6 billion  by end of 2030.


Carborundum, also known as silicon carbide (SiC), is a crystalline compound made of silicon and carbon. It exhibits superior properties such as high thermal conductivity, low thermal expansion, and stiffness, which makes it suitable for use in various industries. SiC is increasingly used in abrasives, refractories, and ceramics. The product finds use in numerous applications including steel & energy, electronics & semiconductors, automotive, aerospace & defense, medical & healthcare, and fabrication. Various types of carborundum used in different applications include black SiC, green SiC, metallurgical SiC, coated SiC, micro grit SiC, and refractory SiC.


Growing electrical & electronics industry is the prime factor propelling the growth of the carborundum market. The product consumption is increasing in a wide range of electronics applications such as kiln furniture, process components, electrical field grading, and surge protection due to its superior properties such as chemical inertness, thermal shock resistance, abrasion hardness, and sinterability. 


The product use is increasing in the automotive industry owing to the high density, excellent oxidation resistance, chemical inertness, high strength, and high thermal shock resistance. Carborundum is used in numerous automobile applications including bearing & wear parts, brake pads, abrasives, and diesel particulate filters, among others. Flourishing automotive industry in the developing countries is fueling the product demand. Additionally, growing demand for electric vehicles due to less carbon emission is likely to drive the market growth at a significant rate in the coming years.


Furthermore, increasing application of carborundum in aerospace & defense, foundry, steel, foundry, and energy industries, among others is expected to drive the market growth during the review period.
