Global Silicon Metal Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A chemical element with the symbol Si and atomic number 14. Silicon is a hard, brittle, grayish-white metalloid that is a poor conductor of electricity and heat. It is the most abundant element in the earth's crust after oxygen.

Content 98.0%-99.0%:

The content 98.0%-99.0% is the percentage of content that falls between 98% and 99%. It is used to measure the performance of semiconductor devices such as transistors, diodes, capacitors and other components in electronic equipment or systems.

Content 99.0%-99.5%:

Silicon metal 99.0%-99.5% is a form of silicon dioxide, which has been purified and dried to the desired degree for use in semiconductor devices or integrated circuits (IC).

Application Insights:

The other application segment includes applications such as automotive, construction, consumer electronics and appliances, medical devices and equipment, aerospace & defense. The automotive application segment is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period followed by electronic semiconductors. The silicon metal market in North America was valued at USD 585 million in 2017 owing to increasing demand for electric vehicles from major manufacturers such as Ford Motor Company and General Motors Company.

Aluminum industry accounted for a significant share of global revenue on account of growing aluminum production which is mainly used in the manufacturing of automobiles along with other products including building & construction materials. Increasing aluminum production has resulted in high consumption of silicones which are derived from this metal along with its compounds thus driving the growth of this market over recent years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to rapid industrialization and increasing per capita income of consumers. In addition, rising investments by foreign players in this region are anticipated to drive demand for silicon metal over the next eight years.

The Asia Pacific regional market includes China, India, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan among other countries.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the electronics and electrical industry for silicon metal as a key component in semiconductor devices, solar energy systems, and other electronic products.
  • Growing demand for silicon metal in the transportation sector due to its use in lightweight alloys for automotive applications.
  • Rapid expansion of the global market for photovoltaic cells, which is boosting demand for silicon metal used in solar energy systems.
  • Rising production of consumer electronics and electric vehicles worldwide, which is increasing overall demand for silicon metal products.
