The global metallurgical grade silicon market is valued at US$ 6.7 billion in 2022 and is expected to progress at a CAGR of 4.1% to reach US$ 10.1 billion by the end of 2032.
Consumption of metallurgical grade silicon accounted for over 40% share of the global silicon metal market at the end of 2021.
Metallurgical grade silicon is formed from silicon that is found in the form of silica in the Earth’s crust. It is also known as MG Si and is a purified form of silicon, having a purity of around 98% or more. It finds wide application in end-use industries such as semiconductors, solar, etc., and is also used as a raw material.
