Definition of the Silicon Carbide Market

Silicon carbide is a chemical compound consisting of silicon and carbon. The easiest way to manufacture silicon carbide is with the combination of silica sand and carbon at high temperatures. Silicon Carbide is a semiconductor that can be doped n-type by nitrogen or phosphorus and p-type by beryllium, boron, aluminum, or gallium. Silicon carbide is a popular abrasive in modern times in the context of its durability and low cost. Silicon carbide is used as a support and shelving material in high-temperature kilns such as for firing ceramics, glass fusing, or glass casting.
