U.S. consumption of silicon by end use 2016

Reported United States consumption of silicon in 2016, by end use (in metric tons)

U.S. consumption of silicon by end use 2016 This statistic depicts the United States' reported consumption of silicon in 2016, by end use. In 2016, around 21 thousand metric tons of ferrosilicon 75% were used for the production of cast irons. Silicon alloys and metals are important in various industries. Ferrosilicon is commonly used in ferrous foundries and steel industries. Silicon metal is often used for aluminum, aluminum alloys, and the chemical industry. Silicon is also often used for semiconductors in solar panels, computer chips, and as a part of the automotive industry.

Supplementary notes
* The miscellaneous and unspecified silicon metal production figure and the cast irons silvery pig ironl production figure were withheld in order to prevent disclosing proprietary company data.
Silvery pig iron: typically 18% silicon content but ranges between 5% to 24% silicon content.
Ferrosilicon: typically 48% silicon content but ranges between 25% to 55% silicon content; includes briquets.
Ferrosilicon: typically 76% silicon content but ranges between 56% to 95% silicon content; includes briquets.
Silicon metal: typically 98% silicon content but ranges between 96% to 99% silicon content.
Miscellaneous silicon alloys: typically 48% silicon content. Primarily magnesium-ferrosilicon but also includes other silicon alloys.
Silicon carbide: typically 64% silicon content but ranges between 63% to 70% silicon content. Does not include silicon carbide for abrasive or refractory uses.
No figure means that no data was available or that it was included in other end use products, to avoid disclosing company proprietary data.
Data includes estimates.
