Silicon carbide (SIC) is also identified as carbrundum and is a silica and carbon compound. SIC is one of the hard materials with outstanding performance, power switching frequency, and power rating compared to silicon. In addition, it has the potential to deliver high power switching applications in an extreme environment. Silicon carbide is an extensive gap semiconductor material used in semiconductor electronic devices that work at high temperatures or high voltage. This property has made silicon carbide highly preferable for end-use applications.

Market Dynamics

Over the last seven years, the global demand for silicon carbide has seen steady growth and is heading into an expansion phase. Growth in this market is due to strong demand from the steel manufacturing and steel processing industries and its recycling units. The steel industries in the Asia Pacific is expected to contribute significantly in the coming years. The growing automotive industry around the globe also plays a crucial role in global growth. As per the OICA, China has emerged as a worldwide leader in automotive production with an annual growth rate of over 8%, which is expected to result in a significant rise in the demand in the coming years. In the last few years, the replacement of established pure silicon technology has risen year by year, increasing global demand for silicon carbide. Although growth in this market is held back by high costs associated with silicon carbide devices. Due to low production yields and low production volumes, silicon carbide products are priced at comparatively higher costs, which has posed as growth restraints.

Regional Analysis

Region-wise, the global silicon carbide market share has been segmented into Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, North America, and the Middle East & Africa.

In 2016, Asia Pacific emerged as one of the most promising markets in the world and had the highest market share in terms of both value and volume. After gaining more than half of the global economy, Asia Pacific is projected to continue leading over the forecast period. Increased sales of the various driver segments, such as steel and energy, electronics, semiconductor and automotive, are responsible for the region's growth. India and China are jointly driving the Asia Pacific market because of the increasing demand for steel and energy powered by industrial and infrastructural growth.

North America is another attractive growth market, dominated by automotive demand. The region is expected to grow substantially due to the massive demand for commercial vehicles. The United States is one of the five largest commercial vehicle manufacturing markets in the world due to the growing demand for silicon carbide.

In the coming years, Europe will continue to expand, including major markets such as Russia, Germany, and the Netherlands. Established aerospace and aviation industries have contributed significantly to regional growth.
