Augmenting Popularity of Electric Vehicles Expected to Reinforce the Demand for Silicon Carbide: Fact.MR Study

Silicon Carbide Market

As per a recent report published by Fact.MR, the global silicon carbide market is poised to grow at a CAGR of 17% from 2022 to 2032. During the said forecast period, the industry is likely to yield a dollar opportunity worth US$ 1.05 Billion in 2022, expected to close at a valuation of US$ 5.1 Billion. The rising trend of electric vehicles and the robust strength of black silicon carbide are necessitating the deployment of Silicon Carbide solutions.  

From 2015 to 2021, the market for Silicon Carbide grew at a CAGR of 16.3%, closing at a value of US$ 988 Million. As of 2022, the industry is likely to reach US$ 1.05 Billion. Prospects heightened after the augmenting applications in plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and electric vehicles (EV). Silicon carbide-based batteries prevent loss of charge and ensure that PHEVs and EVs run for longer distances.

Government policies lay emphasis on increasing the minimum distance that EV manufacturers must ensure in automotive products. Black silicon carbide increases the efficiency and charging capacity of EV batteries which will help in expanding the market grounds for prominent manufacturers.

Key Takeaways from the Market Study 

  • Global Silicon Carbide market to flourish 2.6x from 2022-2032
  • Black Silicon Carbide to be a top-selling category, capturing more than 50% market and flourishing at a 17% CAGR until 2032
  • By application, Silicon Carbide for the automotive industry to expand at a CAGR of 16%
  • S to emerge as the fastest-growing Silicon Carbide market, documenting a 12.6% CAGR
  • China to be the 2nd most opportunistic market, expected to be valued at US$ 2 Billion in 2032 

“With the upward trend of electric vehicles in the automotive industry, key manufacturers are investing heftily in improving their driving distance and efficiency of the battery. Enterprises are adopting black and green Silicon Carbide for the manufacturing of semiconductors owing to their high resistance to thermal shock. This is helping them reduce operational costs, eliminate complexity, and increase the strength of the EVs,” comments a Fact.MR analyst.
