Silicon Carbide Market Overview


Silicon Carbide Market is projected to be worth USD 11 Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 22% during the forecast period (2020 - 2030).


In semiconductor electronic devices, silicon carbide is used in white gap semiconductor materials that are frequently used at high temperatures or high voltages. Sometimes the two conditions are combined. Carborundum is another name for silicon carbide. Silica and carbon make up the compound. It has a lower switching frequency and a much higher power rating than silicon, making it one of the hardest materials. When the environmental conditions are extreme, silicon carbide has the potential to be used in high-power switching applications. Despite being a highly acceptable and demanding compound to be used, silicon carbide manufacturers have only a few reasons and properties that have encouraged it.


COVID-19 Analysis


With the growing pandemic situation, we are seeing it get worse by the day. Global markets appear unaffected by the new normal to some degree. There's just one sector in demand and being used to the fullest extent right now, which is the health sector. It is no surprise that the silicon carbide market has been affected like all other global markets and companies, although there has been steady growth among silicon carbide companies over the last seven years. Coronaviruses are negatively impacting the film industry.


As part of the government's effort to strengthen this market, all major players are participating. There are huge losses for the smaller companies. Silicon carbide companies that are medium and largely flourishing are also being shut down, which automatically lag them behind in the market. Support from the government has helped this market in reviving back.


Competitive Landscape


A thin layer of silicon carbide serves as a barrier to alloys, and since the silicon carbide industry is fragmented, players hold only a marginal share. The market is dominated by,



  • CUMI EM

  • AGSCO Corp

  • Saint-Gobain

  • ESD-SIC BV and


Market Dynamics:


Drivers


There is a tremendous increase in the global silicon carbide market value. A semiconductor material's properties are driving the silicon carbide market to reach new heights for different reasons. The fact that semiconductor devices can easily operate at high temperatures and voltages makes them necessary and highly used. As well as the increase in demand from steel production and steel processing, the recycling industry has also flourished globally, thanks to the operation of all its recycling units. Furthermore, silicon carbide's global growth is greatly influenced by the growing role of the automotive industry.


Opportunities


Due to a variety of reasons and factors, the silicon carbide market trends show that the market is booming across the globe. The overall growth of all this can lead to many more opportunities to make it even bigger. In addition to the growing automotive market around the world, the growing silicon carbide market also offers a chance for further growth. China has already surpassed the global average on the census count. The automotive industry in China is experiencing growth of over 8% annually. Consequently, China is now expected to gain more in the years that follow. It is believed that silicon carbide will eventually replace pure silicon due to the increasing substitution of pure silicon technology. Therefore, silicon carbide consumption globally will increase.


Restraints


Due to the phenomenal growth of this market on a global scale. On its way to success, it encounters several hindrances and obstacles that prevent it from making any further progress. I will mention here only a few reasons among the many that restrict silicon carbide's growth. The silicon carbide replacement of floor silicon is hard to expect, however, the high costs associated with the process have made the task a challenging one. A second issue is the high prices for silicon carbide devices, which are higher than pure silicon due to the low yields and low production volumes. The high price makes silicon carbide unattractive to consumers.


Technology Analysis


As a consequence of technological advancements, modern businesses have gained several advantages. Understanding trends in the market is vital for understanding how an organization can effectively strategize. The company will be able to plan better than its competitors, allowing it to gain an edge over them.
