The global SiC fibers market accounted for US$ 270.0 Mn in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 22.2% during the forecast period 2019 - 2027, to account for US$ 3,571.1 Mn by 2027. SiC fibers are primarily composed of silicon carbide molecules, which generally ranges from 5-50 micrometers in the diameter. It possesses properties such as higher temperature capability, lower thermal expansion, lower density, higher oxidative durability, lower permeability, light-weight, greater strength, better thermal conductivity, therefore, largely being preferred by the end-use industries like aerospace and defense, energy and power, industrial, and others. SiC fibers are widely considered as a key reinforcing agent, which are highly being used in high performance ceramic matrix or metal matrix composites. It is very expensive and has a limited market, currently.
SiC fibers are increasingly being used in the aerospace and defense industry, mainly because of its properties such as high temperature, corrosion and wear resistance, fracture toughness, and high damage tolerance. SiC fibers are increasingly being used as a replacement of the metal alloys, as the former can be used for high-temperature applications. SiC fibers are highly used in engines of gas turbines, thermal protection systems, thruster nozzles, turbine shrouds, and turbopump components, among others.
North America held the largest share in the global SiC fibers market globally. The presence of well-established SiC fibers market players like General Electric Company, along with the strong presence of key aircraft engines manufacturer, is anticipated to boost the SiC fibers market in the North American region. Major aircraft engines manufacturer in North America, includes Rolls Royce, Pratt and Whitney, CFM International, and others. Rising demands form the well-established aerospace industry is expected to boost the North America market. The SiC fiber manufacturers are increasingly being investing in the production of low-cost fibers to fulfill the rising demands of the end-use industry. SiC fibers are used in reformers, nuclear reactors, heat exchangers, reusable rocket nozzles, turbine shrouds, furnace components, and gas turbines for jet engines, among others. Other key players in North America SiC fibers market, includes Haydale Technologies, Inc., COI Ceramics, Inc., Matech, Specialty Materials, Inc., and others.
