Rising demand from emerging applications such as electronics and semiconductors

The demand for synthetic diamond is increasing from its emerging applications such as electronics and semiconductor applications. It is widely used in several electronic devices such as high-power optical electronic devices, high-voltage power electronics, light-emitting diodes, laser diodes, and high-frequency high-power devices.

Synthetic diamond is largely preferred in semiconductor applications due to its unique thermal management properties. The decent thermal conductivity of synthetic diamond helps in enhancing power densities and operational life by lowering the junction temperature,” according to Chandrakumar Badala Jaganathan.

Growing consumption of polished diamonds in jewelry industry

The consumption of polished diamonds is increasing in jewelry applications due to increasing customer's inclination toward diamonds. Diamonds have been used as gemstones in the jewelry industry for centuries. The demand for polished synthetic diamonds is increasing from the jewelry industry due to increased affordability.

In the jewelry industry, synthetic diamonds are commonly used in the manufacturing of rings, necklaces, earrings, bangles, and pendants. The increasing inclination of youths toward diamond is likely to contribute to the growth of synthetic diamonds.

Robust R&D initiatives to enhance synthetic diamonds use

Strong R&D activities related to the current and potential use of synthetic diamond is likely to open various application opportunities in the future. Currently, synthetic diamonds are commonly used in varied industrial applications such as semiconductor, electronics, construction, cutting and polishing of stone and glass, computer chip manufacturing, medical and healthcare, optical devices, oil and gas exploration, and mining.

The continuous rise in R&D activities has created the room for industrial applications. Element Six, a synthetic diamond vendor operates an R&D facility named as Global Innovation Centre in Oxford, UK. The innovation center specifically works to create next generation synthetic diamond products and researches on their applications.

The key vendors are as follows:
