Sillicon Carbide Market Scope
The growing steel industry is anticipated to drive the growth as the silicon carbide (SiC) is used as a deoxidizing agent in the steel industry and is a major raw material in refractories production. Silicon carbide acts as a steel production deoxidizing agent. To generate huge amounts of hot steel together with steel scrap, it is primarily dissolved in an oxygen furnace. Various factors such as the surge in demand for motor drives, compact system size, and the increase in utility of silicon carbide in the cellular base station and radiofrequency devices are some factors, which is driving the growth of the silicon carbide market during the forecast period.
The market study is being classified, by Application (Power Grid Devices, Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTs), High-Voltage, Direct Current Systems (HVCDs), Power Supplies and Inverters, RF Devices & Cellular Base Stations, Lighting Control Systems, Industrial Motor Drives, Flame Detectors, EV Motor Drives, EV Charging Stations, Electronic Combat Systems, Wind Turbine, Solar Power Systems and Others) and major geographies with country level break-up. According to AMA, the Global Sillicon Carbide market is expected to see growth rate of 16.1% and may see market size of USD2.52 Billion by 2025.
