Trends in the SiC Fibres Market 2016-2026
Future Market Insights has announced the addition of the “ SiC Fibres Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2016-2026”report to their offering.
Global SiC Fiber Market: Overview
SiC fiber is primarily composed of SiC crystallites and anamorphous blend of carbon, silicon and oxygen. SiC fiber excellent mechanical properties such high strength, modulus and chemical properties such as resistance to chemical attack and oxidation. Its high strength properties makes SiC an exceptional material for reinforcing composites such as polymer, ceramic, titanium and metal. Ceramic matrix composites widely uses SiC as reinforcing fibres for high temperature applications such as the components required gas turbine engines handling up to 2700°F. The SiC are available in continuous fiber type also called as tow and whiskers which are called short fibres. Also, available in various SiC grades which differ in electrical properties, surface treated SiC grades are also widely used depending on the required properties to be adopted in the final product. Poly-vinyl acetate, poly-vinyl alcohol, epoxy are used in surface treatment of SiC fiber. The global SiC fiber market is expected to grow significantly at a higher rate with the increasing adoption of SiC fibres in the various composites used in aerospace, nuclear, chemical manufacturing and other applications.
Global SiC Fiber Market: Drivers and Restraints:
The exceptional SiC fiber properties such as high tensile strength, toughness, high stiffness, high temperature resistance, resistance under chemical attacks makes SiC the material ideal for industrial uses. The global SiC fiber market is primarily driven by the increasing composite matrix manufacturers. The growth in the prepreg industries fuels the global SiC fiber market since they are widely used in ceramic composites.
