SiC Fibers Market

To know about the assumptions considered for the study, download the pdf brochure

The value chain of SiC fibers manufacturers begins with raw material suppliers and ends at the sales and distribution network. Raw material suppliers are the companies involved in procuring raw materials, non-oxide fibers (carbon and silicon carbide), and non-oxide matrices (silicon carbide, carbon. and silicon carbide/silicon). The aforementioned raw materials are feedstock for the processing industry. The processing industry includes technical ceramics and reinforcing industries that reinforce ceramic fibers in ceramic matrices. The finished product from the processing industry is the feedstock for SiC fibers manufacturers UBE Industries Ltd. (U.S.), SGL Group-The Carbon Company (Germany). The manufacturers in this segment further process the feedstock. It typically includes processes, such as molding, finishing, coating, and customization. The finished product serves as raw materials for OEM manufacturers. UBE Industries Ltd. (U.S.) and SGL-The Carbon Company (Germany) are among the key manufacturers in this segment. OEM manufacturers use the finished products (CMC) to make engine components, aircraft structure components, personnel & vehicle armors, helmets, heat shields, biodegradable splints, artificial bones, and brake disks, among others.

Target Audience:

  • Manufacturers of SiC fibers
  • Manufacturers in end-use industries such as aerospace, aviation, nuclear power generation
  • Traders, distributors, and suppliers of SiC fibers
  • Regional manufacturers' associations and general SiC fiber associations
  • Government and regional agencies and research organizations

“The study answers several questions for stakeholders, primarily which market segments to focus on in the next two to five years for prioritizing efforts and investments and the competitive landscape of the market”.

Key drivers of the market are technological advancement in the aerospace, nuclear, and power generation industries, followed by rise in awareness and investment in SiC fiber by major companies.

SiC fibers are one of the potential materials that can be used in CMC. SiC has high strength, lightweight, heat resistance, creep resistance, high oxidation resistance, and corrosion resistance, even in extreme conditions. These properties make SiC fibers suitable for high-temperature applications.

Continuous/long fibers are projected to witness the highest growth in the SiC fibers market. The continuous fibers are also known as tow. SiC continuous fibers are used as reinforcement materials for ceramic composites materials (CMC) and plastic composite materials (PMC). These fibers possess high strength, heat resistance, and corrosion resistance, even in extreme conditions.

The major application areas of SiC fibers are aerospace, power generation, and nuclear. The aerospace segment will continue to account for the highest demand for SiC in the coming years. In aerospace, it is mostly used in engines where the temperature ranges from of 1,100°C to 1,500°C. Apart from high temperature resistance, SiC fibers also provide required strength and lightweight to the aircraft engines. The weight of the engine reduces by one-third when SiC fibers are used instead of metals.

North America is the largest market for SiC fibers, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. The market in Asia-Pacific is estimated to record high growth owing to increasing demand from aerospace applications. Factors such as evolving environmental & regulatory scenario and pressure from established companies seeking to improve the environmental performance of their products have all led to the increase in demand for SiC fibers in Asia-Pacific.

SiC Fibers Market

Concerns related to manufacturing of SiC fibers restrain the market growth. However, technological advancements have aided in decreasing the amount of impurities in the end products; however, the impurities cannot be eliminated completely. Companies, including Free Form Fibers, are focusing on producing high-performance fibers with accepted impurity levels.

The market is dominated by various players depending on their core competencies. The key players in this market are SGL Group-The Carbon Company (Germany), UBE Industries (Japan), NGS Advanced Fibers Co. Ltd. (Japan), COI Ceramics (U.S.), Specialty Materials (U.S.), Nippon Carbon Co. Ltd. (Japan), Saint-Gobain (France), Volzhsky Abrasive Works (Russia), and Washington Mills (U.S.).
