China Silicon Carbide Industry Report, 2019-2025


China Silicon Carbide Industry Report, 2019-2025

DUBLIN, Aug. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The “China Silicon Carbide Industry Report, 2019-2025” report has been added to’s offering.

Research and Markets Logo

A Combination of Factors Such as Technological Advances, Favorable Policies, and Growing Demand Will Prop the Chinese SiC Industry to Soar.

Silicon carbide (SiC) is the most mature and the most widely used among third-generation wide bandgap semiconductor materials. Over the past two years, global SiC market capacity, however, hovered around 3 million tons due to producers’ unwillingness to expand production, a result of high technical barriers (unstable quality of the raw material crystal column). China’s SiC market remains in large size despite a late start, with its capacity sharing roughly 70% of the global total in 2018.

Although China boasts a large SiC capacity, most of the Chinese companies make little use of their capacity, stopping production or just producing sometimes on account of environmental campaigns. In 2018, China’s SiC output reached 910,000 tons (with capacity utilization close to 40%), an annualized slump of 15.7%. In the country, SiC products fall into black and green types, of which black SiC prevails in the market. In 2018, China produced 850,000 tons of black SiC (or 93.4% of the country’s total SiC output), 15% less than in the previous year; its green SiC output plunged by 25% to 60,000 tons. The ever-wider use of diamond in solar wafer cutting was another big reason why SiC output took a nosedive.

In China, demand from SiC power devices will be a stimulus to SiC market growth, and traditional applied industries like refractories and abrasives will need less. It can be seen from the trends of the international market that foreign automotive semiconductor vendors have set about seeking for long-term partnerships with SiC wafer suppliers; in the Chinese market, the collaborations between the Institute of Electrical Engineering (IEE) of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Tsinghua University and Belgium’s CISSOID in 2019, are a boon for massive application of SiC devices to new energy vehicles.

Additionally, SiC devices are extensively used in 5G base stations. In 2019, Xidian University succeeded in the trial production of a 5G communication chip by using new-generation gallium nitride (GaN) material based on SiC substrate, breaking the overseas monopoly and paving the way for SiC being applied to domestic 5G market.

The burgeoning sectors like new energy vehicles and 5G will push up global SiC power semiconductor market size to a staggering $1.6 billion in 2025, compared with less than $400 million in 2018. The figure is expected to surge to virtually $5.0 billion in 2030, at an AAGR of at least 20%.
