Abstract

Global Silicon Metal Market: Overview

In terms of mass, silicon is the 8th most common element in the cosmos and is the 2nd most plentiful element in the crust of the Earth. It is present naturally in the silicate minerals, comprising feldspar, mica, and silica, which are main constituents of common rocks such as sandstone and quartz. Silicon metal is a brittle, blue-grey lustrous, and hard semi-conductive metal that is utilized to construct steel, microchips, and solar cells, together with numerous other commodities. Owing to the properties such as machinability, high thermal conductivity, and high corrosion resistivity, silicon metal is extensively utilized to produce silicones, aluminum alloys, solar panels, and semiconductors. A key factor providing impetus to the growth of the silicon metal market is the constant mounting requirement for silicon metal for the manufacture of aluminum alloys that are utilized in the automotive, aerospace industries, and foundry.

Global Silicon Metal Market: Growth Factors

When utilized with aluminum, the silicon enhances strength, castability, & hardness, and, thus, is utilized extensively in the manufacture of aluminum alloys. Moreover, they are also utilized to make silicon wafers and silicon compounds, which are utilized to create photovoltaic cells and semiconductors.

The alertness regarding renewable resources as valuable substitutes to fossil fuels and adverse consequences of the using fossils raising eyebrows have backed the notion of using solar panels in satellites, electrical fences, watches, and calculators. As silicon-based photovoltaic modules and solar panels are generated by using high purity polysilicon, the expansion of the worldwide silicon metal market can gain traction.

Global Silicon Metal Market: Segmentation

The worldwide silicon metal market is bifurcated on the basis of application and geography. The application segment of the silicon metal market is divided into silicones/silanes, aluminum alloys, solar panels, semiconductors, laboratory reagents, stainless steel, and others. Geographically, the worldwide silicon metal market can be divided into Latin America, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.

Global Silicon Metal Market: Regional Analysis

The huge investment prospects in Asia Pacific region are one of the major factors that will positively influence the growth of the silicon metal market in this region. The vigorous economic development and undeveloped infrastructure in this region’s remote areas and backing from governments for more renewable energy are the main factors for the implementation of renewable energy. Furthermore, the considerable fall in the price of solar energy technologies draws governments and businesses for choosing renewable energy. The increase in the setting up of solar energy panels will impel the requirement for silicon metal in the worldwide market.
