Silicon tetrachloride, also called tetrachlorosilane, is a colorless, inorganic compound that is volatile in nature with a low boiling point. It is a fuming liquid that has a pungent odor and is moisture-sensitive. It easily decomposes in water, in the presence of heat into, to form hydrogen chloride and silicic acid. Silicon tetrachloride is a byproduct of polycrystalline silicon. It is used as an intermediate for synthesizing silicon-based products and surfacing modifying agents. Furthermore, it is incompatible with acids, bases, water, and alkali metals. It is used to produce silica and high purity silicon, which are majorly used in the commercial sector. Additionally, the high purity silicon has a wide range of applications in photo voltaic (PV) cells, semiconductors, and in the production of optical fibers.

The increasing product usage of consumer electronics and data processing sectors are anticipated to fuel the silicon tetrachloride market in the forecast timeframe. Thus, the rising demand for tablets and smartphones and the development of other high-tech communication devices is fuelling the demand for fiber optics, which, in turn, is likely to boost the silicon tetrachloride market in the future. In addition, silicon tetrachloride is majorly used in the semiconductor and photovoltaic industries to manufacture polysilicon and solar PV cells. This, in turn, is anticipated to further contribute toward the expansion of the silicon tetrachloride market in the upcoming years. However, the high initial installation cost might restrain the silicon tetrachloride market on a global scale in the future.

Global Silicon Tetrachloride Market

By grade, the silicon tetrachloride market is bifurcated into electronics grade and technical grade. By application, the market is segmented into chemical intermediate, silicone rubber, and optic fiber perform. The chemical intermediate segment is further bifurcated into trichlorosilane and fumed silica.

By region, the global silicon tetrachloride market includes North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa. The Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the silicon tetrachloride market in the future, owing to the rising consumption of trichlorosilane in silicone and polysilicon as couple agents, particularly in developing economies, such as China and India. North America is anticipated to hold a substantial share of the global silicon tetrachloride market in the upcoming years, due to the steady growth of polysilicon, which is manufactured using silicon tetrachloride, and the expansion of various end-user industries.

Some major players of the global silicon tetrachloride market are Hemlock Semiconductor, Momentive, Tokuyama, Evonik, Shandong Xinlong, Shanghai Xiangjun, Dow Corning, Hubei Jingxing, Air Products, GRINM Electro-optic, Inner Mongolia Dakang, Tianjin Maotong, GCL-Poly, and China Silicon Corporation, among others.
