Procurement Resource Assessment of Silicon Production Process:

  1. Silicon Production From Reduction: This report provides a comprehensive cost evaluation of silicon production via reduction. In the process, the main step includes the reduction of quartz at an extreme temperature of about 2000 °C with carbon which is carried out in an electric arc in a reduction furnace. Fundamentally, the blend of several carbon materials, like coal or charcoal, and coke gets fed into a reduction furnace with quartz. Later, liquid silicon is derived at a temperature of 1600 °C from the furnace tap hole. At last, the metal is further processed using oxidative refining, casting, crystallization and crushing.

Product Definition:

Silicon (Si) is a chemical component found in sand and glass, which is the most suitable semiconductor material in electronic components. It is the most common isotope in abundance in the planet’s crust. It is the second most abundant electropositive element, the seventh most abundant element with the atomic number 14 and atomic weight of 28, and the 14th element on the periodic table. It has some properties similar to metal but does not classify as a metal. Its atomic mass is 28.0855 g.mol -1, and its density is 2.33 grams/cm3. It’s boiling, and melting point is 3,265 °C and 1,410 °C.

Market Drivers:

The Silicon market is being propelled by the application of the product as a semiconductor which is used for making transistors used in computer chips and solar cells. Hence, its main usage in the electronics sector drives its market demand. Furthermore, it acts as a primary component in the construction sector for making ceramics, bricks and Portland cement which is furthering the market’s growth.

Additionally, in the housing sector, it is employed for waterproofing to eliminate various mould-release agents and moulding compounds that further the market’s expansion. Moreover, it functions as a ferrosilicon component which is an alloy with wide usage in the steel industry. Other uses of silicon include its use as a lubricant in the cosmetic industry and as silicon carbides in lasers and abrasives, augmenting the market’s development.
