The global quartz crucible market is projected to gain demand on the back of the need to find a substitute for polycrystalline silicon, maybe a new silicon material, due to the issue of impurity. Specifically, this could increase the demand in the market for making available low impurity and dislocation-free single crystal silicon ingot. In a report by Transparency Market Research (TMR), the market is comprehensively evaluated based on critical aspects such as competitive landscape, segmentation, and growth dynamics. It is titled “Quartz Crucible Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2017 – 2025.”
Rise in the demand for single crystal silicon ingots is expected to be a result of increasing consumer electronics applications and growing requirement of flash memory cards, tablets, and smartphones. It could be said that this eventually amplifies the advancement of new technologies for silicon wafers. Monocrystalline semiconductors made from silicon are used in mobile phones, microprocessors, and other modern communication technologies. However, the reusability of quartz crucible could pose a few challenges to the growth of the market. Difference in thermal expansion coefficient of silicon and quartz may cause substantial mechanical stress leading to crucible cracking and crystalline defects.
Nonetheless, wide range of applications of quartz in refractory, ceramics, and glass materials being a primary silica source is predicted to create ample of opportunities in the world quartz crucible market. In the coming years, there could be a tall requirement of quartz crucible due to the increase in the demand for high purity quartz in forward-thinking high-tech semiconductor applications.
On the basis of process, the international quartz crucible market could be segregated into Czochralski and gelcasting processes. Both of these processes are implemented to produce high-quality quartz. With respect to application, there could be segments such as solar, electronic, semiconductor, and photovoltaic cell industries. Owing to its impressive heat resistance, quartz crucible is considered to be a preferred choice in solar and semiconductor industries. By product, the market could see a classification into 24, 22, 20, and 18 inches.
Geographically, Asia Pacific is foretold to be a significant region of the international quartz crucible market, where India and China could be among top countries. Followed by North China, the Eastern part of the country is said to be an important quartz crucible producer, at least across the region. Expansion of the semiconductor industry because of the rise in the consumption of semiconductor materials in communication application and data processing industries is prognosticated to bode well for the market in China. Increase in disposable income and consumer electronics demand could be other factors augmenting market growth in the country.
