Global Silicon Carbide Market is valued approximately at USD 2.5 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 16% over the forecast period 2020-2027. Silicon carbide (SiC), also known as carborundum, is a type of chemical compound made of silicon and carbon. Also, SiC has the huge potential to replace other silicon-based semiconductors and transistors due to their low switching cost and can support high operating frequencies, thereby is likely to gain a lot of traction in the forthcoming period. Furthermore, SiC is one of the hard compound materials which has exceptional performance, power rating, power switching frequency in comparison to silicon. Also, it has a huge potential to provide high power switching applications in an intense environment, making the huge adoption of silicon carbide across the end-use applications. Moreover, the growing demand of SiC in the electric vehicle industry and increasing government funding to increase the production of SiC are few other factors responsible for the market growth over the forecast period. According to the survey of the International Energy Agency in 2018, more than 1 million electric cars were sold in 2017 with more than half of global sales in China. Also, it is estimated that the total number of electric cars sold surpassed 2.1 million across the globe in the year 2019. Likewise, in 2019, China remains the world’s most sophisticated market for electric vehicle sales in absolute terms, with 2.3 million electric vehicles in active use. This, in turn, is expected to create huge demand for silicon carbide all over the world. However, the high material and production cost, along with the availability of substitutes are the major factors impeding the market growth over the forecast period of 2020-2027.

The regional analysis of the global Silicon Carbide market is considered for the key regions such as Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Rest of the World. North America is the leading/significant region across the world in terms of market share owing to the increasing proliferation of electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles, along with the presence of a significant number of market vendors in the region. Whereas Asia-Pacific is also anticipated to exhibit the highest growth rate / CAGR over the forecast period 2020-2027. Factors such as the increasing production of SiC due to favorable government support, along with the rapid industrialization in developing nations, such as China and India, would create lucrative growth prospects for the Silicon Carbide market across the Asia-Pacific region.
