Global Tin Telluride Market: Introduction

Tin telluride (SnTe) is a composition of tin (Sn) and tellurium (Te). It is prepared by the standard fusing techniques. Tin telluride is alloyed with the essential compound such as lead (Pb). This combination is widely used as the infrared detector material. The increase in tin concentration enhances the electrical conductivity through the material. The compound generally forms p-type semiconductor or extrinsic semiconductor. Tin telluride act as a superconductor in low temperature. The compound represents the ability to convert thermal energy into electrical energy. These characteristics have key applications in thermoelectric generators.

Tin telluride market is likely to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period owing to higher usage in the semiconductor chips. Increasing demand for computers, electronic gadgets, smartphones, and the television set is projected to boost tin telluride market during the forecast period. The tin telluride market is expected to expand significantly due to the surge in demand for night vision cameras, especially in military and defense applications. High technology cost and complexity in the production of alloys is expected to hamper the tin telluride market developments in near the future. 

Tin Telluride Market: Segmentation
