Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the US House of Representatives, arrived in Taiwan, becoming the highest-ranking US official to visit Taiwan in 25 years.
The move was interpreted as a direct threat by China, which claims the island is part of its territory, and Beijing has repeatedly warned the US that its military will not "sit idly by" and "will take strong countermeasures".
As the international community waits to see how China will react, chipmakers in the business community are already feeling the pain of the brewing conflict between the US and China over Taiwan.
Semiconductor stocks tumbled on Tuesday in anticipation of Pelosi's visit to Taiwan.
Shares in TSMC, the world's largest and most valuable semiconductor maker, worth $440 billion, fell 2.4 per cent on Tuesday. Its Taiwanese counterparts United Microelectronics and MediaTek fell 3% and 1.6% respectively. Meanwhile, shares of the US chipmaker Intel fell 1.5 per cent on the same day.
As Ms Pelosi prepares to meet Taiwan's president, Tsai Ing-wen, on Wednesday, technology investors are keeping a close eye on her actions-and any signs of retaliation from China. In the event of a dispute between China and the US, chipmakers, especially in Taiwan, are likely to be collateral damage.
Because of the turbulent international situation, 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.
