Region :Global | Report ID: FBI100932 | Status : Ongoing



The evolution in the manufacturing of advanced material began in the late 1950s for achieving excellent mechanical, thermal, and chemical properties. Silicon is one of the developments in the production of advanced material that exhibits unique thermal and mechanical properties. It is an inorganic and non-metallic compound made up of silicon and nitrogen. To make silicon nitride, refined material powders are mixed into slurry from which desired shapes are crafted and finished in high temperature and pressure furnaces.

Due to its exceptional properties, it offers not only a wide range of industrial solution but also the best choice for biomaterials. Silicon nitride is a reliable and robust material that resists corrosion, abrasion, and inert to the most chemical reaction. Thus it is used in many industrial applications such as high-end bearings for gas and diesel engines, wind turbines, motorsport equipment, bicycles, rollerblades, skateboards, computer disk drives, machine tools, and in numerous other applications. Thus many industrial leaders agree that silicon nitride will lead the future of material innovation by addressing various industrial challenges.

The silicon nitride market is segmented based on type and end-users. Type is further divided into reaction bonded silicon nitride (RBSN), hot-pressed silicon nitride (HPSN), and sintered silicon nitrides (SSN). Reaction bonded silicon nitride is made by a heating compact of silicon powder in a nitrogen gas atmosphere. It possesses high mechanical fatigue and creeps resistance. Due to its strength at high temperature, it is used into thermocouple sheath, nozzle, and metal parts such as induction heating and resistance welding. HPSN and SSN hold better physical properties owing to its higher densities. They are widely used in reciprocating engine components, turbochargers, bearings, metal cutting, and shaping tools.

The excellent properties of silicon nitride such as resistance to corrosion, abrasion, heat, and inertness to a chemical reaction, making it the most sought after the ceramic material used in a wide variety of industry. Also, the recent boom in e-mobility that requires efficient, economical, and reliable power equipment is anticipating the growth of the silicon nitride market. The per kg cost of the silicon nitride is quite high, which obstructing the growth of the silicon nitride market.
