Rising advancements in 5G technology and IoT present lucrative growth opportunities for the market to flourish.

Global Synthetic Quartz Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The high durability performance of synthetic quartz crystals makes them applicable in optical devices for steppers in semiconductor manufacturing. As a result, growth in semiconductor manufacturing is anticipated to be one of the key drivers for the market. As per Semiconductor Manufacturing Association, the U.S. chip manufacturing capacity is expected to triple by 2032. This indicates positivity after the U.S. president signed the CHIPS and Scient Act into law.

Further, the solar industry is anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the market. In May 2024, a technological breakthrough was published in a study, where scientists in their new proof-of-concept technology used synthetic quartz crystal for trapping solar energy at temperatures over 1000°C. This demonstrates the potential of using green energy to run processes for some carbon-intensive industries such as chemicals, metal, glass, and cement.

Price fluctuations is one of the key restraints faced by the market players. For instance, as per the Q2 2024 performance report of KDS Daishinku Corp., a producer of synthetic quartz, the company’s operating profit declined by 67.9% on y-o-y basis. This decrease was attributed to the price fluctuations and changes in the volumes and product mix.

Product Type Insights & Trends

“Synthetic Quartz Crystals held the largest revenue share in 2023.”

These are produced using natural crystals and recrystallized into a high-purity product with fewer impurities. They provide resistance to acid, corrosion, high temperature, compression, infiltration, and compression. They are also used in optical components and quartz crystal devices, among other applications.

Initially, the quartz crystal devices utilized natural quartz, and to address issues such as impurities, uneven size, and low quality, synthetic quartz crystals were developed. Upon being produced under high temperature and pressure these crystals are incorporated into electronic components. A quartz device construction undergoes the following steps; processing of the wafer of quartz, frequency adjustment and cleaning, and forming electrodes.

Application Insights & Trends

“Electrical & Electronics held the largest revenue share of 76% in 2023.”

The exceptional physical and chemical properties of synthetic quartz make it very useful in the electrical and electronics industry. Its applications range from clocks and communication equipment to computers and digital cameras. Vehicle communication networks and cellular base stations also utilize synthetic quartz.

Growth in the semiconductor industry is anticipated to augment electronics segment growth over the forecast period. For instance, in February 2024, the New York Governor celebrated an investment of USD 11.6 billion by GlobalFoundries in expanding a semiconductor manufacturing plant in Saratoga County. This investment will be spent over a 10-year period expanding the existing site and building a new 358,000-square-foot facility.

Automotive vehicles are another vital end-user of synthetic quartz, which is used in displays, sensors, and other components. The new era of the automotive industry, with special emphasis on safety and connectivity systems, is expected to augment market growth. Electric vehicle sales surpassed 14 million units in 2023, registering more than 34% growth on a year-over-year basis. Thus, growth in the auto industry is anticipated to prove beneficial for market growth.

Regional Insights

“China held over 52% revenue share of the overall Asia Pacific synthetic quartz market.”

The synthetic quartz market of North America is showcasing considerable growth rate. The growth in electronics industry, coupled with the investments in the automotive sector, is anticipated to benefit market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in February 2024, TT Electronics opened a new manufacturing facility in Mexicali, Mexico, adding capacity and electronics manufacturing solutions capabilities.
