Fused Silica is a noncrystalline (glass) form of silicon dioxide (quartz, sand). It lacks long range order in its atomic structure. Its highly cross linked three dimensional structure gives rise to it's high use temperature and low thermal expansion coefficient.
The global revenue of Fused Silica market was valued at 504.40 M USD in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 743.23 M USD in 2025. In the future eight years, we predict the CAGR of global revenue is 4.96%.
China has the largest global export quantity and manufacturers in Fused Silica market, while the North America is the second sales volume market for Fused Silica in 2017. Moreover, China’s production is mainly concentrated in Lianyungang, Jiangsu.
In the industry, Lianyungang Taosheng Fused Quartz profits most in 2017 and recent years, while Heraeus and Lianyungang Haoyu quartz ranked 2 and 3.The market share of them is 12.77%, 12.43% and 6.24% in 2017.The gap of market share is keep on enlarged due to different strategy.
Nowadays, there are four mainly types of Fused Silica, including First Grade Material, Second Grade Material, Third Grade Material and Fourth Grade Material. And First Grade Material is the main type for Fused Silica, and the First Grade Material reached a sales volume of approximately 362.92 K MT in 2017, with 59.95% of global sales volume.
Fused Silica technology is much mature now, and new enterprises can not surpass existing famous brands on reputation or design in the short term. So, the study group recommends the new entrants need to be considered carefully before enter into this field.
