Global Silicon Metal Market 2017-2021: Increase in the Demand for Aluminum-Silicon Alloys – Research and Markets

The “Global
Silicon Metal Market 2017-2021” report has been added to Research
and Markets’ offering.

The report forecasts the global silicon metal market to grow at a CAGR
of 5.2% during the period 2017-2021.

The report, Global Silicon Metal Market 2017-2021, has been prepared
based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts.
The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the
coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors
operating in this market.

One trend in the market is investment opportunities in APAC. Investors
are displaying increasing anticipation about the growth prospects in the
solar power industry in APAC, which had been a backwater of renewable
energy in the recent past. The region is expected to benefit from the
rapidly declining price of solar panels. The strong economic growth and
undeveloped infrastructure in more remote areas of APAC, abundant
sunshine, relatively high cost of electricity, lack of conventional
sources, and backing for more renewable energy from governments are the
major beneficial factors.

One driver in the market is increase in the demand for aluminum-silicon
alloys. Aluminum-silicon alloys have witnessed a significant increase in
the demand from the automotive and transport industries. These alloys
are popular because of their ability to exhibit a unique combination of
desirable characteristics, such as casting into complex shapes in
combination with a favorable strength-to-weight ratio giving them an
edge over cast irons and low density combined with good mechanical
properties. Aluminum-silicon alloys are primarily used as castings. In
addition, they are used for making sheets and wires for welding and
brazing, and a few of the piston alloys are extruded for forging stock.
