Silicon Carbide Ceramics Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2018 - 2026

Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC605

Introduction

Silicon carbide is a corrosion-resistant ceramic used in mechanical seals and pump parts. It is a powder or grain form element, produced from carbon reduction of silica. Silicon carbide is manufactured as either fine powder or a large bonded mass, which is crushed for further processes. Silicon carbide maintains its strength even at temperatures up to 1400°C. Due to its better corrosion resistance property, it is used in bushings, nozzles, sealing rings, friction bearings, and special components. The silicon carbide group deals with process developments and materials in reaction-bonded and re-crystallized ceramics, oxide bonded silicon carbide, ceramics with controlled porosity, sintered ceramics (pressure-less, pressure sintered), and carbides from organic precursors.

Market Dynamics

The silicon carbide ceramics market is primarily driven by its properties such as high thermal conductivity and electrical semi-conductivity. The demand for silicon carbide ceramics has increased owing to its outstanding thermal shock resistance and intensive hardness characteristics. Refractive index of silicon carbide ceramics is greater than that of a diamond; this factor is anticipated to boost the demand for silicon carbide ceramics in machining components. However, higher cost of silicon carbide ceramics as compared to metals and alloys is restraining the silicon carbide ceramics market growth.

Market Classification

The global silicon carbide ceramics market is segmented based on type, application, and geography. Based on type, the market is segmented into direct sintered silicon carbide, reaction bonded silicon carbide, hot pressing silicon carbide, CVD silicon carbide, and others. Based on application, the market is segmented into machinery manufacturing, metallurgical industry, chemical engineering, aerospace & defence, and others. Based on geography, market is divided into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow rapidly in the forecasted years due to increasing use of such ceramics in various end-use industries in the emerging economies.
