  • Rise in Research and Development Expenditure – As per the World Bank, global research and development spending increased to 2.63% of total GDP in 2020.


  • Fluctuation in Costs of Raw Materials
  • Low Adoption Rate
  • Stringent Rules by Government

The porous silicon substrates market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into medical & healthcare, battery applications, thin film applications, and others. Out of these, medical & healthcare segment is attributed to hold largest market share by 2033, owing to the high number of users in healthcare sector. A study stated that by 2025, global healthcare sector users is forecasted to stood up at approximately 1.3 billion people. Also, the user penetration was calculated to be 12% in 2022 and expected to rise to 18% by 2025.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth


The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Program), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labor as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
