Silicon Nitride Market

Silicon Nitride Market by Type (Reaction Bonded Silicon Nitride, Hot Pressed Silicon Nitride, Sintered Silicon Nitride), End-use Industry (Photovoltaic, Automotive, General Industrial, Aerospace, Medical), and Region - Global Forecast to 2023

Report Code : CH 7075
Published ON : May, 2019

[109 Pages Report] The market size of silicon nitride is projected to grow from USD 90 million in 2018 to USD 127 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. Silicon nitride (Si3N4) is an inorganic, non-metallic compound of silicon and nitrogen. It is used as a ceramic material. It offers excellent resistance against abrasion, corrosion, and most chemicals. Among the advanced ceramics, silicon nitride has the highest fracture resistance than other advanced ceramic. Hence, these desirable properties make silicon nitride a suitable material for use in end-use industries such as solar photovoltaic, automotive, general industrial, aerospace, and medical among.

Silicon Nitride Market

Medical is projected to be the fastest-growing end-use industry during the forecast period.

In the medical industry, silicon nitride is used as a material for manufacturing surgical screws, plates, and bearings for use in applications such as prosthetic hips, knee joints, and dental implants. Silicon nitride composites are also used in cervical spacers and spinal fusion devices. It is biocompatible, bioactive, bacterial resistant, and shows excellent bone affinity.

Also, silicon nitride can provide an exceptionally smooth and wear-resistant surface for applications, such as bearings for hip and knee replacements in the medical industry. The market for silicon nitride in the medical industry is in the nascent stage and is expected to grow the fastest in the coming years.

Sintered silicon nitride (SSN) is projected to be the largest segment of the silicon nitride market during the forecast period.

SSN exhibits properties such as high-temperature strength, superior thermal shock resistance, creep resistance, good fracture toughness, oxidation resistance, and excellent wear resistance. SSN is used in applications such as components in glow plugs in diesel engines, pre-combustion chambers, turbochargers, rocker arm pads in spark ignition engines, and components in exhaust gas control valves.

APAC is projected to be the largest market during the forecast period.

APAC is the largest silicon nitride market, and this trend is expected to continue until 2023. China accounted for the largest market in the region, followed by Japan, South Korea, and India in the year 2017. China is also projected to grow the fastest, in terms of consumption, between 2018 and 2023. There is an increase in the consumption of silicon nitride in the automotive industry. Growing innovation and the rising demand for improved products in the end-use industries are driving the use of silicon nitride in the region.

This study involved four major activities in estimating the current market size of silicon nitride. Exhaustive secondary research was carried out to collect information on the peer and parent markets. The next step was to validate these findings, assumptions, and sizing with industry experts across the value chain through primary research. Both top-down and bottom-up approaches were employed to estimate the overall market size. Thereafter, market breakdown and data triangulation were used to estimate the market size of segments and sub-segments.

Secondary Research

In the secondary research process, various sources such as annual reports, press releases, and investor presentations of companies; white papers; publications by recognized websites; and databases were referred to for identifying and collecting information. Secondary research was used to obtain key information about the supply chain of the industry, the total pool of key players, market classification, and segmentation according to the industry trends to the bottom-most level, regional markets, and key developments from both, the market- and technology-oriented perspectives.

Primary Research

The silicon market comprises several stakeholders such as raw material suppliers, processors, fabricators, end-product manufacturers, and regulatory organizations in the supply chain. The demand side of this market is characterized by the development of the automotive, photovoltaic, aerospace, general industrial, medical, and other industries. The supply side is characterized by advancements in technology and diverse end-use industries. Various primary sources from both, the supply and demand sides of the market were interviewed to obtain qualitative and quantitative information.

Market Size Estimation

Both top-down and bottom-up approaches were used to estimate and validate the size of the global silicon nitride market and to estimate the sizes of various other dependent submarkets. The research methodology used to estimate the market size includes the following:

  • The key players in the industry were identified through extensive secondary research.
  • The supply chain of the industry and market size, in terms of value and volume, were determined through primary and secondary research.
  • All percentage shares were determined using secondary sources and verified through primary sources.
  • All possible parameters that affect the markets covered in this research study were accounted for, viewed in extensive detail, verified through primary research, and analyzed to obtain the final quantitative and qualitative data.
  • The research includes the study of reports, reviews, and newsletters of key industry players along with extensive interviews with key officials such as directors and marketing executives.

Data Triangulation

After arriving at the total market size through the estimation process, the overall market was split into several segments and sub-segments. The data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed, wherever applicable, to complete the overall market size estimation process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and sub-segments. The data was triangulated by studying various factors and trends from both, the demand and supply sides. In addition, the market size was validated by using the top-down and bottom-up approaches. Then, it was verified through primary interviews. Thus, for every data segment, there were three sources—top-down approach, bottom-up approach, and expert interviews. The data was assumed to be correct when the values arrived at from the three sources matched.
