Silicon Carbide Fiber Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast (2023-2029)

Silicon Carbide Fiber Market is expected to reach US$ 3507.55 Mn. in 2029, with a CAGR of 27.8% for the period 2023-2029, because of the increasing use of lightweight silicon carbide (SiC) fibres.

Silicon Carbide Fiber Market Introduction:

SiC (silicon carbide) fibres are made up of of silicon carbide molecules and have great tensile strength, stiffness, chemical, resistance, and low thermal expansion. SiC fibres are commonly manufactured using the Yajima technique, chemical vapour deposition (CVD), and laser driven chemical vapour deposition (LCVD). Several studies and advances are being conducted in order to expand the range of applications for these fibres. Silicon carbide fibres, for example, are reinforced with SiC composite matrix in high-temperature structural applications like gas turbine engines. Under the effect of a wide temperature range, these fibres can survive structural and environmental conditions (up to 2700-degree Fahrenheit). They are also preferred over other materials like metallic superalloys, monolithic ceramics, carbon fibre composites, and oxide ceramic composites because of their capacity to be tailored for specific stress levels and a wide working temperature range.Silicon Carbide Fiber Market To know about the Research Methodology:- Request Free Sample Report

Silicon Carbide Fiber Market Dynamics:

Over the forecast period, the market is expected to be driven by the increasing use of lightweight silicon carbide (SiC) fibres for component manufacture in the aerospace industry. The market is also likely to be driven by rising demand for the product in nuclear power plants for channel boxes and fuel cladding. When compared to other high-performance fibres on the market, silicon carbide fibres have a better strength-to-weight ratio. Over the forecast period, the higher performance of SiC fibres at extreme temperature conditions is expected to enhance market growth. Additionally, these fibres have exceptional chemical resistance, a high modulus, and a low thermal expansion. High volume usage in the defence industry is predicted to promote the silicon carbide fibres business in the United States. Over the estimated period, the SiC market is likely to be driven by rising product use in the production of energy and power components. Because of the huge production volume, the products are expected to be readily available, resulting in greater consumption. Silicon carbide fibres are marketed at exorbitant prices, and the product has a restricted market presence because the United States and Japan control the majority of commercial production. Manufacturers around the world, particularly in the Middle East and Africa, are installing and expanding capacity to satisfy rising demand and strengthen their position in the worldwide SiC fibres market. The development of improved silicon carbide fibres that may be employed in high-temperature structural applications is being aided by technological improvements supplied by globally recognised research centres. The product's operating properties are predicted to improve as a result of the development of innovative designs and processing technologies. However, potential competitors, such as academic institutions and other entities with greater financial resources, are projected to pose a challenge to these players as they work to develop more effective and cost-efficient goods.

COVID-19 Impact on Silicon Carbide Fiber Market:

The COVID-19 epidemic has wreaked havoc on numerous industries' demand & supply chains. More than a hundred countries have closed their international borders to non-essential trade and transportation. Due to the potential of infection among the workforce, manufacturing companies are likewise functioning at half capacity during this epidemic. Moreover, demand for silicon carbide (SiC) fibres has declined because of the liquidity crunch and financial crisis. Also, the lockdowns have been enforced in nations where the aerospace and defence sectors contribute a significant portion of the economy's growth, such as the United States, China, India, France, Germany, and others, resulting in lower demand for SiC fibres.

Silicon Carbide Fiber Market Segment Analysis:

Based On Form Segment: The Silicon Carbide Fiber market is further segmented into Continuous, Woven, and Others. In terms of revenue, the continuous silicon carbide fibres segment dominated the global market in 2022 and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 35.9% during the forecast period (2023-2029). These fibres operate well in high-radiation environments, attracting a lot of interest from the nuclear power generation business. The majority of ceramic matrix composites with continuous filament reinforcement are lightweight and durable. The product is widely used in the aerospace and defence industries to manufacture massive essential components. Fiber tows are also simple to work with and can be utilized to create complex-shaped composites. To make non-oxidative silicon carbide fibres, a variety of processing approaches have been explored. The advancement of these procedures is predicted to manage the product's microstructural development as well as a wide range of attributes such as modulus, tensile strength, density, and dielectric constant. In 2022, the woven silicon carbide fibres category accounted for 34.6 percent of the global market's revenue, and it is expected to grow significantly thanks to increasing demand from high-temperature applications. Demand for SiC fibres is likely to rise in the next years as more advanced silicon carbide-based composites are used in hypersonic applications. On the basis of End-use Industry: The Silicon Carbide Fiber market is further segmented into Aerospace & Defense, Energy & Power, Industrial, and Others. The aerospace and defence segment contributed the most revenue in 2022, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 34.6 percent during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the lightweight, heat resistant, durable, chemically stable, shock resistant, and creep resistant qualities of silicon carbide fibres. These properties make them appropriate for a broad range of aerospace and defence applications, including engine component insulation and turbine nanotubes. During the forecast period, the energy & power category is expected to increase at a CAGR of 18.5 percent. Silicon Carbide Fiber Market1
