Boron Nitride and Boron Carbide: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) September 24, 2014
Follow us on LinkedIn – Boron nitride and boron carbide are two major compounds of boron that find use in diverse industries including automotive, equipment & machinery, electronics, metal working, and medical, among others. Due to the fact that dynamics of the boron nitride and boron carbide market are linked to the trends in major end-use markets, market growth was affected by the economic volatility of the past few years. With the global economy now rebounding and the manufacturing sector gathering pace, the market is positioned for growth in the coming years. Increased demand from major end-use sectors including ceramics, refractory coatings, and electronic devices, among others, is driving consumption of boron nitride and boron carbide.
Demand is also expected to benefit from the development of large-volume production methods and the emergence of new technologies. Growth will also be driven by the rising popularity of materials such as Cubic Boron Nitride (CBN), which is the world’s second hardest material after diamond. CBN as abrasive is witnessing impressive growth for use in grinding engine parts, and transmissions. Despite the high costs, CBN abrasives are being preferred by manufacturers due to the promise of long life. Demand for boron carbide, with its unique characteristics such as low specific gravity, resistance to several reactive chemicals, high elastic modulus, good hot strength and extreme hardness, is expected from various industrial applications, as well as in bulletproof vests, engine sabotage powders, and tank armor. Boron carbide also finds use in cutting tools, metal matrix composites, brake lining of automobiles, abrasives, scratch resistant coatings, neutron absorber in nuclear reactors, and high-pressure water jet cutter and grit blasting nozzles, among others.
As stated by the new market research report on Boron Nitride and Boron Carbide, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. The country is also forecast to record the fastest CAGR of 4.2% over the forecast period.
