Abstract

Global Silicon Tetrachloride Market: Overview

Silicon tetrachloride is an inorganic and colorless compound. It has volatile characteristics. Its chemical formula is SiCl4. Silicon tetrachloride is mainly used as an intermediary for manufacturing polysilicon, which is a hyper-pure type of silicon. In addition, silicon tetrachloride has a low boiling point, which makes it suitable for purification via periodic fractional distillation. The popularity of the global silicon tetrachloride market can be attributed to the extensive usage of polysilicon in the photovoltaic industry for manufacturing standard solar cells.

Global Silicon Tetrachloride Market: Growth Factors

The major growth driver in the global silicon tetrachloride market is the increase in the demand for tablets and smartphones. Several governments across the world are taking initiatives to promote renewable and clean sources of energy, which is further fuelling the expansion of the global market for silicon tetrachloride. Silicon tetrachloride is used to manufacture polysilicon, which is used as wafers in huge amounts in the photovoltaic industry for the production of solar cells that are made from crystalline silicon. The semiconductor industry also uses the silicon tetrachloride. These factors are contributing to the growth of the global silicon tetrachloride market. There is anticipated growth regarding solar PV cells, which is also a contributing factor in the expansion of the silicon tetrachloride market in the upcoming years.

High installation and manufacturing costs associated with optic fiber and solar industry, among other factors, might prove to be a hindrance in the expansion of the silicon tetrachloride market globally.

Global Silicon Tetrachloride Market: Segmentation

The global silicon tetrachloride market can be divided based on application, grade, and derivatives. On the basis of application, the market for silicon tetrachloride can be segmented into chemical intermediate (trichlorosilane and fumed silica), optic fiber perform, and silicone rubber, among others. Based on grade, the silicon tetrachloride market can be classified into electronics grade and technical grade. On the basis of derivatives, the market for silicon tetrachloride can be categorized into polysilicon (photovoltaic cells and semiconductors) and fumed silica (personal care, adhesive and sealant, paints and coatings, and food), among others (printing inks, pharmaceuticals etc.)

Global Silicon Tetrachloride Market: Regional Analysis

Based on regions, the global market for silicon tetrachloride can be divided into five main regions: North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. In the Asia Pacific region, developing economies, like China and India, are consuming huge amounts of trichlorosilane in silicone and polysilicon couple agent. This is expected to drive the market for silicon tetrachloride in the region. The North American region is anticipated to hold a substantial share in the silicon tetrachloride market in the upcoming years. This is due to the projected steady growth of the polysilicon, which is manufactured using silicon tetrachloride. The expansion of the various end-user industries in this region is also expected to drive the growth of this market.
