Silicon metal is a lustrous and grey semi-conductive metal and is widely used to manufacture solar cells, microchips, steel, and others. It acts as a base material for different products and hence has an important role in the consumer and industrial sector. The silicon metal manufacturing process is highly energy intensive and it can be manufactured by smelting immersed electric arc furnaces.

According to Ken Research Analysis, the Global Silicon Metal Market is expected to record a positive CAGR of ~5% during the forecast period (2022-2028) and is expected to reach nearly US$ 8 billion by 2028, owing to increasing demand for silicon metal in various industries such as automobiles, solar, battery materials, refractory materials, and others.

Growing demand for silicon in the automotive industry along with increasing penetration of electric vehicles globally are anticipated to propel the growth of the global silicon metal market during the forecast period.

  • The increased use of silicon or aluminum-silicon alloys in the production of automobiles due to their properties such as corrosion resistance, low thermal expansion, low wear rates, and others is likely to propel the growth of the global silicon metal market.

The global silicon metal market faces challenges due to the shortage of metals like silicon.

  • The supply shortage of silicon metals due to their high usage in the production of semiconductor materials along with the high prices of semiconductors is also expected to restrict the growth of the market.

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the silicon metal market due to disruption in the supply chain, shortage of workers for the mining industry, shortage of raw materials, and others. In addition, the abrupt shutdown of operations has impacted economic growth, and thus, changed the pattern of consumer spending patterns.

Key Trends by Market Segment:

By Product Type: The metallurgy grade segment held the largest share of the global silicon metal market by product type in 2021, owing to the growing demand for high-purity metals for the production of steel and cast iron.

  • The expansion of the solar and semiconductor industry along with the increase in innovative technologies to lower cost production and surging demand for renewable sources of energy globally is expected to fuel the demand for the segment in the global silicon metal market.
