Automotive Market Driving Growth for Legacy Quartz

Quartz Market Is Expected To Reach US$1.66 B in 2021 up ~20%

San Diego, CA, July 13, 2021: TECHCET—the electronic materials advisory firm providing business and technology information— the automotive chip shortage is driving strong growth of < 200 mm quartz demand. Quartz suppliers have been struggling to ramp up production to meet demand.  As Highlighted in TECHCET’s Quartz Report. “Even 150mm parts demand is coming back,” stated Lita Shon-Roy, TECHCET’s President & CEO.  “The industry is scrambling to provide enough needed components, including silicon carbide, silicon as well as quartz components to support etch and deposition equipment/processes.”

The quartz fabrication market is expected to reach US$1,656M in 2021, growing ~20% from 2020. The 5-year CAGR (2020-2025) for both the base materials and fabricated parts market segments is estimated to be approximately 8%. In 2021, the semiconductor equipment market is expected to exceed 20% further driving demand of quartz parts.  The industry will be able to  meet the growing demand until 2022, by which time the next wave of quartz supply chain expansion will be needed.

Market shares have only changed slightly. Fabrication market leaders include: Heraeus-ShinEtsu/Conamics, Tosoh, Wonik QnC, Ferrotec, Hayward Quartz, Techno Quartz and Maruwa. With regard to base materials, Wonik’s acquisition of Momentive has improved its position.  Major based material shareholders include: Heraeus/Shin-Etsu, Wonik, Feilihua, Tosoh, and QSIL.

Details on the QUartz fabrications market and supply-chain, including base materials and high-purity quartz powder, can be found in TECHCET’s newly released “Critical Materials Report™ on Quartz Parts.”
