Analysts’ Viewpoint:

“The use of Trichlorosilane (TCS) technology in the manufacture and use of semiconductor is expected to provide various opportunities for market growth, Senior analyst, Chemical & Material Market Research Center in WK-chem.” It is expected that during the forecast period, the electronic and electrical industry will dominate the global Trichlorosilane (TCS) market.”

Market insight:

Trichlorosilane (TCS) is a volatile, colorless liquid with the chemical formula SiHCl3. It is an inorganic compound manufactured by reacting powdered silicon with hydrogen chloride and has a sharp, acidic odor. Trichlorosilane is a flammable compound and gets easily dissolved with organic solvents and fumes present in the air. It is used for the production of silicone, and silicon which are further used in solar panels and semiconductors. Trichlorosilane has high demand from electronics industry as it is used in the manufacturing of polycrystalline silicon.The factors expected to drive the trichlorosilane market is the growing demand for the manufacture of solar photovoltaics. The rising need for alternate energy sources due to the depletion of fossil fuels is expected to grow the trichlorosilane market as TCS is widely used in the production of semiconductor silicon.

Competition Landscape:

This WK-chem market report is designed to help clients improve their market position, and in line with this, this report provides a detailed analysis of several leading Trichlorosilane (TCS) companys that include Dow Corning Corporation, Wacker Chemie AG, Qianjiang Tianxiang Chemical Co. Ltd., Fuji Chemical Industry Co. Ltd., Tangshan Sunfar Silicon Industries Co. Ltd .etc.

Segmentation of Trichlorosilane (TCS) Market:

Based on applications, market is segmented into silane coupling agents, polycrystalline silicon and other applications including organic synthetic intermediate, chemical synthesis of phenyl trichlorosilane, vinyl chlorosilanes. Trichlorosilane is majorly used as a starting material for organosilicon compounds, such as octadecyl (OTS), perfluorooctyl (PFOTCS), and perfluorooctyl (FDTS) trichlorosilane, further used for coating processes in nano technology and surface science. TCS is widely used in organic silicon compounds such as in micro-electrochemical systems (MEMS) and in nanoimprint lithography (NIL) as a silane coupling agent. Silane coupling agent is used in the field of silicon containing organic polymers, in electronic and optical materials, catalysts and coatings applications. It is a high-tech value-added silicone composite material widely used in glass fiber, foundry, and tires rubber sectors. Based on production process, the trichlorosilane market is segmented as hydrochlorination process and direct chlorination process. Hydrochlorination process saves around 70% of the energy as compared to direct chlorination as it incorporates two chemical process steps in one reactor and can be easily integrated into existing Siemens plants. Metallurgical grade silicon with higher product yield is used in the hydrochlorination based polysilicon process which offers cost saving and energy efficient process. The use of hydrochlorination process for the production offers ultra-high purity polysilicon. This polycrystalline silicon is widely used as an important base material for the silicon wafer preferably used in semiconductor devices and electronics industry. The highest purity level of polysilicon offered by hydrochlorination process is crucial for high performance and efficiency in the solar cells and semiconductor devices.

Trichlorosilane (TCS) Market: Regional Analysis
