Additionally, the rising production in automotive industries is expected to accelerate the demand for carborundum for the production of ceramic brakes, carbide chips, batteries, and others. For instance, the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) stated that the automobile industry manufactured a total of 22,933,230 vehicles which include commercial vehicles, passenger vehicles, two-wheelers, three-wheelers, and quadricycles from April 2021 to March 2022, with a slight increase in the manufacturing of same vehicles from April 2020 to March 2021 of 22,655,609 units. Thus, the increasing demand for automobiles among the population is estimated to support the growth of the carborundum market. In the context of the region, North America is anticipated to contribute to the growth of the carborundum market. The rising demand for carborundum in the production of semiconductors, telecommunications, electronic devices, pharmaceuticals, and others and rising expenditures from major market players for technology adoption is projected to accelerate the carborundum market in the North American region.

Carborundum Market Dynamics:

Carborundum, also referred to as silicon carbide (SiC), is a crystalline inorganic compound made of carbon and silicon. Carborundum is used as an abrasive for grinding, cutting, and polishing coupled with other applications such as increased use as an antislip additive, ceramics, and refractories due to the factors like high thermal conductivity, stiffness, and low thermal expansion.

Driver:

The wide applicability of carborundum as raw material in multiple refractory applications such as furnaces, linings of kilns, and reactors combined with the casting process of metals like cast iron, steel, and aluminum due to high-temperature resistance are the major factors that fuel the growth of the carborundum market during the forecast period. Additionally, the increased demand for carborundum for the production of silicon carbide chips, semiconductors, and the wet and dry paper coupled with printmaking applications such as paint, powder, and paint also boost the growth of the carborundum market.

Restraint:

The high cost of carborundum material which ranges from around USD 800 to USD 2,000 per ton combined with the availability of low-cost alternatives to carborundum for product manufacturing restrict the growth of the carborundum market. Additionally, the increased concerns of health-related risks such as cancer due to mismanagement of such highly reactive substances and lack of distribution channels especially in underdeveloped nations such as Indonesia, Mexico, and Brazil hamper the carborundum market growth.

COVID-19 Analysis of the Carborundum Market:

The carborundum market has been significantly impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic in many different parts of the world. The factors such as transportation restrictions, the shutdown of manufacturing facilities, limited availability of raw materials, and economic slowdown are the major impacts of COVID-19 which hampered the growth of the carborundum market. Shipments were impacted during the initial lockdown due to labor shortages and stringent government rules. However, the circumstances have stabilized and as a result, it is determined that COVID-19’s overall impact on the carborundum market is moderate. Post covid-19, there was a positive impact on the carborundum market due to the increased use of carborundum products for the rising rate of industrial manufacturing.

Carborundum Market Segment Analysis:

By Type

The type segment is separated into black SiC, green SiC, coated SiC, metallurgical SiC, refractory SiC, and micro grit SiC. The black SiC segment is anticipated to contribute the largest share of over 55.2% in 2021. The factors such as the large demand for powder, block, and grain products of carborundum especially in electric arc furnaces, high tensile strength due to its brittle nature, and growing use for precision grinding are estimated to support the growth of black SiC segment during the forecast period. Additionally, the green SiC segment is also expected to register the fastest CAGR growth during the projected period owing to the increased popularity among hardest man-made minerals, high resistance against extreme temperatures, and rising use as specialty ceramics in the production of wear-resistant seals, metal-matrix composites, and nozzles.
