Key Market Trends

Growing Demand from Semiconductor Industry

  • Semiconductor application segment dominated the high purity quartz market in 2021 and accounted for major share of the market.
  • High purity quartz is used within the semiconductor industry in the manufacturing of crucibles and quartz glass products such as tubes, rods, and windows, due to its superior properties such as high silicon content and excellent purity.
  • High purity quartz is primarily used in the manufacturing of silicon metal, which is a base material in the production of semiconductor wafers.
  • Silicon acts as an insulator at low temperature and smooth conductor of electricity at high temperature, owing to which it is used in the production of various semiconductor products such as integrated circuit boards, transistors, and microchips etc. Hence, growing demand for new-generation wafers from the semiconductor industry is anticipated to enhance HPQ consumption rate.
  • Additionally, substantial demand for semiconductor ICs, owing to increasing penetration of the internet of things (IoT) especially in the emerging economies, is a key factor driving the demand for high purity quartz.
    • For instance, according to the data published by International Data Corporation (IDC), by 2025, data collected from IoT devices is expected to be 73 ZB (zettabytes). Most of data may obtain from security and video surveillance, industrial IoT applications and 75% of 56 B connected devices worldwide are anticipated to be connected to an IoT platform.
  • Moreover, growing semiconductor industry is expected to create huge demand for HPQ and thereby boost growth of the target market over the forecast period.
    • For instance, as per the stats released by Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), the global semiconductor industry sales were USD 52.5 billion in February 2022, an increase of 26.2% over February 2021 total of USD 39.6 billion.
  • Therefore, considering the aforementioned factors, the demand for high purity quartz is expected to rise in the semiconductor application segment significantly in near future.
High Purity Quartz Market Share

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market

  • The Asia-Pacific region dominated the worldwide market in 2021, with the significant market share in terms of revenue, and is projected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period of 2022-2027.
  • Growing installations of solar PV, along with high adoption of high purity quartz from various end use industries across the Asian countries including India, China, and Japan is primary factor driving growth of the target industry in Asia Pacific.
  • Increasing penetration of the internet of things, growing demand for high bandwidth network, and rising optical fibers and telecommunication industry are among major factors expected to fuel growth of the Asia Pacifica high purity quartz industry in next few years.
  • Additionally, the region is anticipated to dominate the target market over the forecast period as the China is the hub for semiconductors and electronics and industry. China’s semiconductor industry is continuous to gain momentum and growing at noteworthy CAGR.
    • As per the stats released by Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), Chinese semiconductor industry could generate USD 116 billion in annual revenue by 2024, capturing upwards of 17.4% of global market share.
  • Moreover, in India rapid industrialization, growing installations of solar plants, increasing government support for the use of solar, and rising adoption of advanced electronics are factors propelling demand for high purity quartz and thereby boosting growth of the market.
    • According to Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), in 2021, India achieved 5th global position in solar power deployment by surpassing Italy. Solar power capacity has increased by more than 11 times in the last five years.
    • In January 2022, Reliance Industries agreement with Gujarat to invest INR 5.95 lakh crore, mainly in green energy, wherein RIL will invest INR 60,000 crore in setting up manufacturing facilities for solar PV modules, electrolyzers, batteries, and fuel cells.
    • Additionally, India set a goal of 450 GW of renewable energy by 2030 in January 2020. The declaration came from the central government, which is already planning on projects of installation of around 100 GW of solar energy by 2022.
  • All aforementioned factors are likely to fuel growth of the Asia-Pacific high purity quartz market over the forecast time frame.
