RAW SILICON MUST BE TRANSFORMED AND/OR ENGINEERED
BEFORE IT CAN BE USED FOR BATTERY APPLICATIONS
Silicon is widely considered the next significant advance in battery technology as the theoretical charge capacity can be about 9X that of a typical graphite anode.
Silicon requires less voltage for charging and allows for reduced overvoltage.
Silicon may be the most abundant element in earth’s crust after oxygen, but like all other energy metals (lithium, graphite, cobalt, nickel and others):
DEMAND TO REACH 3.8 M MT WORTH ABOUT US $10 BILLION BY 2025 (CRU)
NEW PLANTS NEEDED TO MEET DEMAND GROWTH
GROWTH WILL BE DRIVEN BY DEMAND FOR CHEMICAL GRADE SILICON (2N+ Si)
Used as feedstock to make Silicones
Used as feedstock to produce Polysilicon (for both Siemens and FBR processes)
Transformed into Silicon powder (1 µm to 5 µm) used in specialty applications
Used as feedstock to make engineered Silicon for battery applications

PARTICIPATE IN THE SURGE
The silicone market was valued at $18.2 billion in 2018, and is expected to reach $91.4 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 22.5% from 2019 to 2026. (Technavio, Jan.2021)
UBS estimates that over the next ten years, the energy storage market in the United States alone could grow to as much as $426 billion, and there are many ways to buy into the surge! (CNBC, Dec. 2019)
