Silicon Carbide Wafer Market Size Worth USD 912.3 Million at CAGR

Silicon Carbide Wafer Market

Silicon Carbide Wafer Market

The increasing demand for Silicon Carbide Wafer devices in semiconductors and for motor drives is influencing the market growth.

Market Size – USD 231.1 million in 2018, Market Growth – CAGR of 16.3%, Market Trends – Growing adoption of SIC in Semiconductors.

The global Silicon Carbide Wafer market is expected to reach USD 912.3 Million by 2026, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Wafer is a thin slice of semiconductor material, generally used in the fabrication of Integrated Circuits. It is also used in photovoltaic for wafer-based solar cells.

Silicon Carbide Wafers can withstand high temperature, voltage, and power and thus make it a popular choice in semiconductors. Its increasing demand in motor drives, the ability to reduce the overall size, its growing application in radio frequency devices and cellular base station are all factors that contribute to the growth of the market. Application of SIC in the semiconductor is very famous. Silicon is a metalloid and a semiconductor. Silicon dioxide is most commonly used in IC technology due to its extremely stable chemical nature as compared to other oxides.

Asia Pacific is expected to hold the largest market share in the SIC market owing to the growth in the RF and cellular base station. Expanding 4G network, inverter application and the power supply is helping the growth of the market in this region. APAC holds the largest market share and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR. North America has the second largest market share.

Key participants include Basic 3C Inc., Cree Inc., Rohm Semiconductors, Fuji Electric Co., Ltd., General Electric, Genesic Semiconductor Inc., Renesas Electronics Corporation, Infineon Technologies AG, Stmicroelectronics N.V., Monolith Semiconductor Inc., Ascatron AB and Graphensic AB.
