The Global Silicon Carbide Fiber Market: Highlights
Stratview Research foresees a robust growth opportunity of CAGR 8.2% in the SiC fibers market over the next five years (2016 – 2021), which offers an opportunity to the materials industryplayers to align themselves with the market growth. Technological advancement, development of new applications in high temperature areas, and high focus of major engine manufacturers to increase the use of SiC fibers in upcoming engine models for commercial and military aircraft are likely to drive the SiC fibers market.
Aerospace and Defense segment is expected to experience the fastest growth during the forecast period driven by continuous development of new applications in high temperature areas (1,100°C to 1,600°C) of the aircraft engines. SiC Fibers based composites have one-third density to the nearest rival Nickel metal alloys and therefore reduce the overall engine weight significantly.
Continuous SiC fibers also known as tow, are expected to experience the fastest growth during the forecast period. Continuous fibers are suitable for ceramic matrix composites (CMC), metal matrix composites (MMC), and polymer matrix composites (PMC).
They (continuous fibers) are widely preferred in the aerospace and defense industry.
North America is expected to remain the largest market for SiC fibers during the forecast period driven by presence of major aircraft engine manufacturers and high demand of CMC components in other industries including power generation and nuclear. Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period, driven by growing aerospace and defense industry.
The key SiC fiber manufacturers are NGS Advanced Fibers Co. Ltd., COI Ceramics, Specialty Materials, Saint-Gobain, UBE Industries, and Volzhsky Abrasive Works.
Technological development, new product development for high performance applications, and strategic alliances are the key strategies adopted by the key players to gain competitive edge in the market.
