Silicon Carbide Market Size Worth $7.98 Billion By 2030

April 2023 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Silicon Carbide Market Growth & Trends

The global silicon carbide market size is expected to reach USD 7.98 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 11.7% according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The rising prominence of silicon carbide in the production of Single-crystal SiC wafers is projected to aid the market growth over the forecast period. In the last few years, the consumption of single-crystal SiC wafers increased significantly, especially to manufacture electronic chips in the semiconductor industry. The increasing need to produce compact and right design electronic devices is projected to further push the product demand in the semiconductors industry. These single-crystal wafers offer limited power loss in the form of heat owing to the reduced leakage currents and wide-bandgap. Moreover, the SiC-based wafers are equipped to handle 10 times more voltage than their counterpart materials.

The rising usage of SiC-based chips in the electronic section of Electric Vehicles (EVs) is anticipated to positively influence the dynamics of the industry over the forecast period. The prominent EV manufacturers, including Tesla, use SiC-based chips in their vehicles. As per the recent news, Tesla is establishing its new EV manufacturing in India. Such new investments are likely to provide opportunities for the growth of the market of SiC and its associated products over the predicted timeline. The organic and inorganic growth strategies adopted by key players in the semiconductor industry are also likely to support the growth of the market. For instance, in January 2019, Cree, Inc., signed a long-term agreement to supply SiC wafers to STMicroelectronics. The adoption of SiC power devices in electronics, renewable energy systems, and automotive has increased tremendously over the last few years and is anticipated to gain additional thrust over the coming years.
