The global soft magnetic material industry is a mature industry. However, a new energy paradigm, consisting of greater reliance on renewable energy sources and increased concern for energy efficiency in the total energy life-cycle, has accelerated research into energy-related technologies. New improved materials with higher energy efficiency have been demonstrated for amorphous and nanocrystalline soft magnetic materials. While amorphous steel has been used extensively as the core material for transformers and motors, the emerging nanocrystalline core material has even higher efficiency and will see much higher growth in the future.

Polysilicon is the primary feedstock used for the production of crystalline silicon PV, which constituted 90 percent of global PV module production in 2013. In recent years, rapid growth of the PV market has led to the emergence of a dedicated solar polysilicon supply chain, and the solar industry now dominates global polysilicon consumption (estimated 90% in 2014). After enduring a sustained period of severe overcapacity in 2011-2013, pricing rebounded strongly in 2014, and renewed confidence in strong end-market growth in 2014-2016 has prompted the re-start of many previously shuttered plants and the resumption of capacity addition plans in 2015.
