The key driving factors of the market are increasing usage of CBN in electronics and developments in material processing
Cubic boron nitride (CBN) are a type of thin film made from the compound cubic boron nitride. CBN is similar to diamond in terms of its hardness and thermal stability, making it an ideal material for cutting and grinding devices. It has a complex cubic/sphalerite structure with interpenetrating face-centred cubic lattices. Unlike diamond, however, CBN is electrically insulating and can be utilized in various electronic applications. Boron nitride has the chemical formula BN and is a refractory compound made of boron and nitrogen that is resistant to both heat and chemicals. It exists in a variety of crystalline forms that are isoelectronic with a similarly structured carbon lattice. C-NB (cubic boron nitride) is produced from hexagonal boron nitride treated at high temperature and pressure. Potential properties of c-BN films, such as low thermal expansion, high thermal conductivity, and high electrical resistance, are also anticipated to have a positive impact on global product demand. Due to its wide band gap, insulating properties, and high thermal conductivity, cubic boron nitride is also a desirable material for electronic applications. It is utilized as a heat sink in semiconductor lasers, microwave devices, and LEDs. Additionally, Si or Be doped c-BN can be utilized as p-n junction diodes.
The major factors responsible for the growth of the market for cubic boron nitride include the increasing usage of CBN in electronics and developments in material processing. The cubic and hexagonal polymorphs of boron nitride are promising candidates for optoelectronic devices operating in the deep ultraviolet range and for high-power electronic devices for switching and radio-frequency applications due to their wide optical bandgaps, which are the widest among nitride semiconductors.
