Global market for silicon and ferro silicon is witnessing robust growth, driven by its use in numerous end-use applications. Of special note is the spiraling demand for solar-grade Polysilicon, which is primarily used as a feedstock in the manufacture of solar panels. Growing investments in renewable energy technologies, and the rapid development of the solar energy industry, are therefore expected to benefit demand for silicon and ferro silicon in the coming years. A large chunk of future growth is forecast to stem from Asia-Pacific supported by rising need for sustainable and cheap renewable energy power, increased political commitment to combat climate change, strong demand for electronic devices and an equally robust semiconductor industry. Further, easy availability of raw materials in the region and cheaper costs have resulted in Asia-Pacific emerging as a production hub for solar modules. Overshadowing the developed US and European markets, China and Japan represent lucrative markets for solar-grade Polysilicon. Ferrosilicon is also finding new application as an alloying agent in the manufacture of steel and cast iron. Rising iron and steel production due to booming construction and automotive sectors is expected to augur well for the market. Additionally, rising demand for demand for mobile PCs, set-top boxes and 3G/4G smartphones that make use of semiconductor chips will increase demand for raw silicon in the near term.

The upcoming report will offer coverage on major companies including AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group NV, Elkem AS, Dow Corning Corporation, Mitsubishi Materials Corporation and Shin-Etsu Chemical Co. Ltd., among others.

In addition, the study will also provide:

  • Valuable market based intelligence on new emerging trends, growth drivers, issues and challenges.
  • Current coverage on company information and latest news and events including strategic corporate developments, and product innovations
  • Fresh research perspectives, statistical findings, analyst analysis, and commentaries
  • Accurate end-use market estimates, projections, and forecasts for Silicon and Ferro Silicon (Metallurgy, Chemicals, Semiconductors, Ferrous Foundry, Steel Industry and Others) across major geographic markets (the United States, Canada, Japan, Europe, Asia-Pacific, The Middle East and Latin America).
