Global silicon carbide market was valued at US$ 8205.0 Million in 2021. Silicon Carbide market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.67 % over the forecast period (2022-2030), to reach US$ 14699.8 Million by 2030.

Silicon carbide is one of the hardest compounds that have excellent power switching frequency and power rating. This property makes it ideal for electronic applications. It is produced by mixing petroleum coke and sand in high pressure and temperature conditions. Silicon carbide is broadly used in high power devices, optoelectronics devices, high-temperature devices, and high-frequency power devices. Robust growth in the steel industry due to the increasing production of steel is a prime factor driving the market growth of the silicon carbide. Silicon carbide (SiC) is used as a deoxidizing agent in steel production.

The global market for silicon carbide was impacted to some extent amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This can be attributed to the imposition of lockdown and travel restrictions which resulted in seizure of all industrial activities. However, as the manufacturing facilities involved in various sectors such as electronics, automobile, medical, steel and others are slowly resuming their operations after mid-2020, the demand for silicon carbide is expected to once again gain momentum in the upcoming year.
