Metal Silicon Production Cost Report

Silicon (Si) is a chemical element present in glass and sand that is the best semiconductor material in electronic components. It is abundantly present in the crust of the earth and is the second most abundant electropositive element and the seventh most abundant element in the universe. Despite its metal-like properties and appearance, it cannot be classified as a metal.

Silicon is the most common isotope with the atomic number 14 and atomic weight of 28 with four valence electrons. It appears to be a metal-like substance in its pure state that resembles aluminium. It is the 14th element on the periodic table. It is a nonmetallic chemical element belonging to the carbon family.

It has an atomic mass of 28.0855 g.mol -1 and a density of 2.33 grams/cm3. It has melting and boiling points of 1,410 °C and 3,265 °C. It comprises several series of hydrides, many halides (many containing silicon-silicon bounds) and multiple series of compounds (containing oxygen), which can have ionic or covalent properties.

Silicon is primarily used as a semiconductor, where it is used to make transistors. It is widely used in computer chips and solar cells. This is the main application of silicon in the electronics industry, which is driving its market demand. In addition, in the construction sector, it works as a major constituent in ceramics and bricks and is a crucial element of Portland cement and fire bricks that boost its market growth.

In housing, it is also used for waterproofing systems, many mould release agents and moulding compounds which furthers the industry's expansion. Furthermore, it is also a ferrosilicon component– an alloy with extensive application in the steel industry. Additionally, in the cosmetic industry, it is used as a lubricant in some cosmetics and hair conditioners, further augmenting its market. Also, silicon carbides are essential lasers and abrasives, resulting in increased market growth.
