According to the latest quarterly analysis of the natural gas market released by the International Energy Agency, global natural gas consumption will decline slightly this year and increase slowly in the following years because of soaring prices and the possibility of further reductions in Russian natural gas supplies. Global natural gas use this year is expected to be 0.5% lower than the 2021 level, and global natural gas demand is expected to increase by only 140 billion cubic meters over 2021 by 2025, the report said. The annual growth in 2021 will reach 175 billion cubic meters.
At the same time, the IEA's forecast for natural gas demand growth by 2024 was 60 per cent lower than its previous forecast, mainly due to "a weak economy and a smaller energy shift from coal or oil to natural gas", the report said.
It is worth noting that the South Korean Ministry of Industry, Trade and Resources announced on the same day that it plans to increase the proportion of nuclear power in South Korea's national energy structure to more than 30% by 2030. The proportion is 27.4% in 2021. The department also announced the resumption of the construction of two nuclear reactors. According to reports, after taking office, South Korean President Yoon Sik-Yue rejected the previous government's plan to phase out nuclear power and promised to increase investment in the nuclear power industry, so as to regain South Korea's status as a major exporter of safe nuclear reactors.
In addition, the supply and prices of many international bulk silicon carbide are still very uncertain.
Silicon carbide for military bulletproof armor
Silicon carbide is used to make bulletproof armor. The property of this compound that makes it suitable for this purpose is its hardness. Bullets and other harmful objects will have to compete with hard ceramic blocks formed by silicon carbide. The bullet can't penetrate the ceramic block.
Silicon carbide for semiconductors
After adding the dopant, the silicon carbide becomes a semiconductor. Dopants such as boron and aluminum added to silicon carbide make it a p-type semiconductor. On the other hand, nitrogen, phosphorus and other dopants are added to silicon carbide to make it an n-type semiconductor. You can read this article for more information about the differences between p-type semiconductors and n-type semiconductors.
Silicon carbide for abrasive
Silicon carbide is usually used as an abrasive because of its hardness. It is used to make grinding wheels, cutting tools and sandpaper. Silicon carbide abrasives are usually cheaper than other abrasives of similar quality. Abrasives are used to grind materials such as steel, aluminum, cast iron and rubber.
Silicon Carbide for Electric vehicles
Compared with silicon, silicon carbide is a better choice to power electric vehicles. Electric vehicles powered by silicon carbide are efficient and cost-effective. Well-known companies such as Tesla are using silicon carbide to make electric cars to improve efficiency and mileage.
Silicon carbide for jewelry
Silicon carbide is similar to diamond in structure. This makes it an asset of the jewelry industry. It is shinier, cheaper, more durable and lighter than diamonds. The properties of silicon carbide make it a valuable substitute for diamonds in the jewelry industry.
Silicon carbide for fuel
Silicon carbide is also used as fuel, among other uses. It is used as a fuel in the manufacture of steel and produces steel that is purer than most other fuels. It is also a cheaper and more environmentally friendly fuel.
Silicon carbide used in LED
The first set of light-emitting diodes (LED) produced using silicon carbide technology. It is used to make blue, red and yellow LED. LED is used for televisions, display panels, and computers.
Silicon carbide Price
The price is influenced by many factors including the supply and demand in the market, industry trends, economic activity, market sentiment, and unexpected events.

Europe has been facing the gas shortage problem since the second half of 2021. The worsening situation in Russia and Ukraine has reduced Russian gas shipments to Europe, leading to a doubling of European gas prices. Energy shortages have sent electricity prices soaring. For these reasons, it is predicted that the price of the silicon carbide will continue to increase.
