Increasing Demand from End-Use Industries Drives the Global Silicon and Ferrosilicon Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.SD 3295 Minerals, ground or treatedSD 3339 Primary nonferrous metals, not elsewhere classified
September 17, 2014
  San Jose, California (PRWEB) September 17, 2014         Follow us on LinkedIn – Although silicon and ferrosilicon are manufactured using the same process and are characterized by more or less similar physical properties, they have very diverse applications. While silicon is used in the production of metallurgy metals such as aluminum, chemicals, semiconductors and other products; ferrosilicon mainly finds application in the production of iron, steel and magnesium. Silicon metal is one of the most important inorganic materials used in a range of end-use industries. Valued for its metallic and non-metallic characteristics, silicon is utilized extensively in the primary and secondary aluminum industries and chemical industry. The form of silicon metal utilized in the aluminum and chemical industry is distinctively different, influenced to a large extent by each industry's unique needs and requirements. Ferrosilicon, an alloy of iron and silicon is widely used in molten crude steel as a de-oxidizing agent. It is usually added to steel to enhance its corrosion-resistance and electrical conductivity properties.       Growing GDP rates, rising disposable income levels, recovering economic conditions, and rapid rates of industrialization, urbanization and westernization in developing countries are driving growth in demand for silicon-based products from various end-use industries.

Gurnee courts tech company Courts: CEO a Gurnee native
September 17, 2014
Gurnee Mayor Kristina Kovarik is seeking support from other local taxing agencies for a combined $2.3 million package of proposed financial incentives to a Hoffman Estates semiconductor company that supporters say could lead to a version of Silicon Valley in the village. If approved, the $2.3 million local financial assistance for AKHAN Semiconductor Inc. to move to Gurnee would be on top of about $3.5 million available through an agreement with the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. AKHAN's founder and chief executive officer, Adam Khan, said he intends to bring all 54 of his company's employees from Hoffman Estates and California to Gurnee by year's end if a deal if struck, with plans to create up to 250 jobs within three years. AKHAN would bring its corporate headquarters, manufacturing, and research and development to a 120,000-square-foot building west of the Tri-State Tollway. Kenall Manufacturing, which has produced high-quality lighting products in Gurnee for 26 years, is leaving the building for a larger facility in Kenosha, allowing room for 400 employees and the creation of 350 new jobs under an incentive package granted by Wisconsin.

18.9% CAGR for Silicon on Insulator Market Globally to 2020 Says a New Research Report Available at RnRMarketResearch.com.
September 17, 2014
  (PRWEB) September 17, 2014       The term 'Silicon on Insulator' was first introduced by IBM in August 1998. The potential benefits from technologies associated with the Silicon on Insulator (SOI) lies in the intersection of multiple capabilities. With new technological inventions and its seamless integration in our day to day lives, it is evident that the Silicon on Insulator concept has already laid down the foundation for a promising future.           Developments in semiconductor devices have necessitated greater performance from silicon-substrate semiconductors. This has led to the development of the Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) technology, which improves the semiconductor performance by reducing the capacitance between different layers. While the SOI market is expected to show a huge growth due to the increasing demand for semiconductors, there is still a considerable scope for development as SOI is new compared to the silicon substrate semiconductor technology.
