Global SiC Fibers Market to Reach US$ 1,580.7 Million by 2032, Accelerated by Increasing Demand for Lightweight and High-Strength Materials

June 23, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "SiC Fibers Market Report by Type (First Generation, Second Generation, Third Generation), Form (Continuous, Woven, and Others), Phase (Crystalline, Amorphous), Usage (Composites, Non-Composites), Application (Aerospace and Defense, Energy and Power, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global SiC fibers market size reached US$ 755.4 Million in 2023. SiC fibers, also known as silicon carbide fibers, have emerged as a cutting-edge material revolutionizing industries such as aerospace, defense, and energy. These fibers are exceptionally lightweight yet incredibly strong and heat-resistant, making them ideal for high-performance applications. They are made from silicon carbide, a compound composed of silicon and carbon atoms, and are fabricated through various advanced manufacturing techniques. Their production process involves synthesizing a precursor polymer, such as polycarbosilane (PCS), spinning it into a fiber form through melt or wet spinning, and then stabilizing it by heating it in an inert atmosphere. This, in turn, converts the material into a carbon-rich fiber. Finally, the carbon fiber is subjected to a high-temperature treatment in the presence of silicon gas, which reacts with the carbon to form a silicon carbide matrix. The resulting SiC fibers possess exceptional mechanical properties and thermal stability. They offer several advantages over conventional materials, such as a higher strength-to-weight ratio, allowing for the design and production of lightweight components without compromising structural integrity. They also exhibit remarkable thermal stability, enabling them to withstand extreme temperatures without degradation. This characteristic makes them ideal for applications in gas turbines, nuclear reactors, and high-temperature furnaces.

Global SiC Fibers Market Trends:

The global SiC fibers market is primarily supported by the increasing demand for lightweight and high-strength materials in industries such as aerospace, automotive, and energy. SiC fibers offer exceptional mechanical properties, including high-temperature resistance, superior thermal conductivity, and excellent chemical stability. This is supported by the rising focus on renewable energy sources and the escalating need for efficient power transmission systems. Additionally, the growing adoption of SiC fibers in the defense sector for manufacturing advanced aircraft components and missile systems, the expansion of the electronics and semiconductor industry, and the increasing demand for SiC-based devices are some other factors accelerating the market growth. Furthermore, advancements in manufacturing technologies and the development of cost-effective production methods are fostering the market growth. In confluence with this, the advent of stringent environmental regulations and the growing research and development (R&D) activities focusing on enhancing the properties and performance of SiC fibers are influencing the market growth. Moreover, burgeoning investments in infrastructure development, the expanding automotive sector, and the shifting preference toward electric vehicles (EVs) are creating substantial opportunities for the market growth. Other factors, such as the surging awareness regarding the advantages of SiC fibers in terms of durability, corrosion resistance, and reduced maintenance costs and the development of new product variants with improved creep and oxidation resistance, are propelling the market growth. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 1,580.7 Million by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 8.4% during 2024-2032.
