Drivers – Boron Carbide Market

·         Increasing Defense Expenditure and Rise in Production of Armours

The demand for boron carbide in the defense sector is significantly increasing due to its application in the production of body and vehicle armour. Countries such as India, China, the US, and others have significantly increased their defense budgets over the past several years and there has also been significant growth in armor procurement. This is noted to spur growth in the consumption of boron carbide.

 

Challenges – Boron Carbide Market

·         Complexities in the Manufacturing Process Lead to High Manufacturing Cost

Manufacturing of boron carbide involves a process that requires a temperature of over 2000 Celsius. Moreover, since boron carbide is initially produced in ingots, it is again a complex process leading to an increase in its price. Boron carbide is reported to be nearly ten times more expensive than its alternatives, resulting in end users preferring the cheap options available on the market.
