Aluminum Carbide Market Propelling Owing to Its Application in Abrasives

Published By: IndustryARC Published On : 16-Jan-2019
Carbides are compounds constituting carbon or any other element with reduced electronegativity. The major aluminum carbide market growth factor is its application in abrasives with silicon carbides. Owing to its high strength, aluminum carbide is also in demand to be applied in metal cutting tools. These tools are highly regarded due to their precision and less material wastage qualities. Various end-use industries such as machinery, electronics, and metal fabrication are anticipated to drive the market. As per the market estimations projected by the IndustryARC’s business intelligence report, the aluminum carbide market is poised for exponential growth considering its use in abrasives during the forecast period of 2019 to 2024.

Aluminum Carbide Market Analysis

 (2018 - 2023)



Construction and Electronics Industries Supplementing Demand

Aluminum carbide market growth is indicated to be directly proportional to the rapidly growing abrasives market. Additionally, the demand of abrasives from a wide range of application industries such as construction and electronics is anticipated to reflect positively over the market. Abrasives are used for various applications such as polishing, cutting, drilling, grinding, buffing, and refining in these industries. In the construction sector, it is used to shape and surface building materials. It provides non-slippery traits to the floor, ramp, steps, stairways etc. On the other hand, aluminum carbide is used in the electronics industry is used for electrical transmission lines because of its lightweight. 

Aluminum Carbides are also added to the aluminum matrix to control the creeping tendency of aluminum. This is done to decrease the possibility of failure in aluminum when exposed to elongated stress. Abrasives are also applied for fabrication of metal which is essential to give it an advantageous shape for application. Swiftly growing industries such as fabrication, electrical equipment, and transportation are generating a requirement base for abrasives which is further supplementing the market. Hydrolysis of aluminum carbide produces methane, which is a very powerful greenhouse gas and is also employed to produce electricity.
