High Purity Quartz Market - Overview
High purity quartz is a vital industrial component required for use in the production of all high-end electronics applications, semi-conductors, and photovoltaic (PV) solar panels. None of these products can be manufactured without reliable supply of consistent-purity HPQ. High purity quartz has been gaining a lot of attention over the last few years. This type of high purity silica is the key raw material used in the manufacture of silica glass, a type of glass used in silicon processing and transparent UV-lamp bulbs. Increasing demand for solar energy augments the demand for high purity quartz. High purity quartz is used in several industries including semiconductor, solar, fiber optics, and lightening. High purity fused quartz, made from high purity quartz sand, offer a wide range of optical, mechanical, and thermal properties which are essential for producing several high-tech products.

In terms of application, the high purity quartz market has been segmented into semiconductors, solar, lightening, optics, and others. Among these, the semiconductor segment is projected to dominate the global high purity quartz market throughout the forecast period. Increasing demand for HPQ in the semiconductor industry can be attributed to growing number of new fabrication plants (commonly called Fabs). High purity quartz is increasingly being used in the semiconductor industry to produce crucibles and quartz glass products such as windows, rods, and tubes. This factor is expected to drive the demand for high purity quartz in the semiconductor segment during the forecast period. The Paris Agreement, which was signed between more than 190 countries in 2015, calls for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and limiting the rise in global temperature to below 2?C by the end of this century. This factor fuels the global solar power sector. This, in turn, drives the global high purity quartz market.
