Boron Nitride & Hot Pressed Shapes Market Overview

The Boron Nitride & Hot Pressed Shapes Market size is forecast to reach US$1.4 billion by 2027, after growing at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Boron Nitride is an advanced synthetic ceramic material that is available in solid and powder form. In its solid form, boron nitride is also called white graphite, owing to its structural similarity to graphite. Due to its excellent chemical and thermal stability, boron nitride oxide ceramics are primarily used as components of high-temperature equipment. Its high impermeability to liquid and gas makes them an ideal coating material for the prevention of surface oxidation and corrosion of metals and other materials, which include black phosphorus. They are used in a wide range of applications which include coating and mold, electrical insulation, lubrication, semiconductor, cosmetics, metals and alloys, and other applications. According to recent insights from the Semiconductor Industry Association, China imported around US$378 billion in semiconductors, accumulated 35% of the world’s electronic devices, and was responsible for 30% to 70% of the global PC, TV, and mobile phone exports in 2020. An increase in demand from the electronics & semiconductors along with metallurgy industries acts as the major driver for the market. On the other hand, health risks associated with the use of boron nitride may act as a major constraint for the market.

COVID-19 Impact

There is no doubt that the COVID-19 lockdown has significantly reduced production activities as a result of the country-wise shutdown of production sites, shortage of labor, and the decline of supply and demand chain all over the world, thus, affecting the market. Studies show that the outbreak of COVID-19 sharply declined the production of raw materials in 2020 due to a lack of operations across multiple countries around the world. However, a slow recovery in the electronic industry has been witnessed across many countries around the world since 2021. An increase in work from home and e-learning practices during COVID-19 has significantly led to high demand for laptops, tablets, and smartphones which have resulted in the higher production of these electronics. For instance, according to the Retailers Association of India (RAI), consumer electronics net sales increased by 2% in September and 8% in October 2020, in comparison to 2019, owing to the increase for electronic devices for remote practices during COVID-19.

In this way, a steady increase in electronics production activities is expected to increase the demand for hot-pressed boron nitride since they are primarily used in electronic parts such as substrates, coil forms, transistor circuits, and more, along with insulation of electric wires, batteries and other electrical components in electronic gadgets. This indicates a steady recovery of the market in the upcoming years.
