Silicon is a chemical element with fourteen as its atomic number. It is a hard and brittle crystalline solid with a bluish grey metallic luster. Nitride is a nitrogen compound having an oxidation state of -3. Silicon Nitride is a non-oxide ceramic with excellent material properties. Despite being light weighted as silicon carbide, silicon nitride possesses strong thermal shock resistance. Silicon nitride ceramics find their applications in balls bearings, ceramic forming tools, and automotive components, etc.
Silicon nitride market is driven by the broad application of silicon nitride in the manufacture of turbochargers for automobiles. Use of silicon nitride as an alternative in end-use industries also drives the growth of the silicon nitride market. The manufacturing process of silicon nitride is complicated and costly. In addition to this, availability of ceramics such as alumina, silicon carbide, etc. as an alternative, restricts the fruitful development of the silicon nitride market. Adoption of electric & hybrid vehicles and the development of silicon nitride as a biocompatible material in the medical industry will foster the growth of the silicon nitride market in the years to come.
