Global Silicon Metal Market Dynamics

Silicon (Si) is a light silicate chemical element with metallic and non-metallic properties. Silicate is formed when silicon combines with oxygen and other elements. Silicates comprises of more than 25% of the Earth’s crust. Silicon metal as quartz or quartzite is used to produce silicon ferroalloys for the various industries like iron, steel, aluminium and chemical industries. Silicon metal is used as a feedstock by the aluminium, chemical, electronics and metallurgical industries. Various factors such as growing solar PV market, growing semiconductor and electronics industry, the massive investment in integrated silicone plants in China and India in recent years, increasing efforts to integrate upstream production facilities into silicon metal production are driving the global metal silicon market over forecast period. Prices of the silicon metal are affected by changes in demand, supply, and consumption requirements by the aluminium, semiconductor, chemical, ferrous foundry, and steel industries.

However, factors such as high capital expenditures, antidumping policies related to silicon metal, stringent regulations pertaining to silicon dispose are restraining the market growth over the forecast period.
