Synthetic Quartz Crystal Accounts for Over 80% Share

Preferred for their excellent electrical conductivity, synthetic quartz crystal continue to account for major share of manufacturers’ bottom lines. In addition, synthetic quartz crystal is rapidly replacing synthetic quartz glass owing to its greater tolerance to extreme pressure and temperature over the latter. While both synthetic quartz crystal and synthetic quartz glass are integrated in many electronics & electrical products for conductivity and insulation purposes, demand growth of the former will remain on upward trajectory.

High Growth Potential of East Asia Intact

On the back of strong presence of the electronics and automotive industries in countries – China, and South Korea, East Asia is leading the pack in the synthetic quartz market. Accounting for over a third revenue share, the regional market will cross US$ 50 Mn mark during the latter half of forecast period. On the other hand, the market in North America and Europe is also offering lucrative growth prospects, with both collectively holding nearly 45% market share. Furthermore, the US, China, and Japan spearheading the global semiconductor industry, which is again attracting significant investment from stakeholders.

Solar PV Panels Emerging as Key Application Area

Rising demand for electricity in tandem with exhaustion of existing energy sources have accented the need for renewable sources of energy such as solar energy. Globally, the adoption of solar panels is on a steady rise, attributed to increasing power/ electricity consumption in urban and semi-urban areas. Further, notable upsurge in government-funded solar energy projects, especially in China, and India, are expected to work in favor of the synthetic quartz market
