Growing demand in the steel manufacturing and steel recycling industries and the dependence of electronics & semiconductors on silicon carbide are factors that are expected to drive SiC demand over the next five years. High level of precision involved in the manufacture of components and low tolerance specifications in their applications are expected to be key challenges for market participants in the coming years.

Black and green SiC were the dominant product segments, and accounted for over 90% of the overall market share in 2012. Black SiC is expected to continue holding its market position in the near future and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.4% between 2013 and 2019. Green SiC consumption is expected to reach 656.1 kilo tons by 2019. Coated, refractory and metallurgical SiC along with metallurgical briquettes and SiC micro grit accounted for a smaller part of the market with applications in high-performance applications.

Silicon carbide is primarily used in steel & energy, automotives, aerospace & aviation, military & defense, electronics & semiconductors and medical & healthcare end-user segments. Steel & energy showed the highest demand for silicon carbide in 2012 and accounted for more than 28% of the market. Electronics & semiconductors and automotives were the other major segments for the material and are also expected to show strong demand in the near future. Medical & healthcare is expected to show the most demand for silicon carbide during the forecast period and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.6% between 2013 and 2019.

Asia Pacific was the largest market for silicon carbide in 2012 and accounted for more than 50% of the global demand. Steel & energy, electronics & semiconductors and automotives were the major markets driving sales for silicon carbide in Asia Pacific, making it the largest market in terms of volume. Asia Pacific and RoW are expected to be strong future markets for silicon carbide owing to growing industrialization and infrastructure. SiC demand in North America and Europe is expected to reach 249.6 kilo tons and 375.6 kilo tons by 2019 respectively. ESK-SIC Gmbh, The Dow Chemical Company, Grindwell Norton Ltd. AGSCO Corporation, Entegris Inc., Norstel AB and Gaddis Engineered Materials along with others were key market participants in the SiC industry.
