Global boron nitride market trend 2025-2026 How many do you know about the properties and applications of boron nitride by Newsrailwaysofchina

The spread of the novel coronavirus is taking a direct hit on the operations of airlines in Asia. About 500,000 flights taking off and landing in mainland China have been canceled since January, according to aviation information company Cerium. Tourists and business trips have plummeted. On the booking website, there are a large number of air tickets for local routes with a price reduction of nearly 90% compared with the original price and only tens of yuan for a one-way trip.
In February, China's aviation industry recorded its largest single-month loss of 24.59 billion yuan, of which airlines lost 20.96 billion yuan.
Data from the Civil Aviation Administration of China showed that in February, the number of passengers traveling by air fell 84.5% year-on-year to 8.34 million.
The stagnation of the Asian aviation industry has brought volatility to boron nitride.

Overview of Boron nitride

Boron nitride with the chemical formula BN is a thermally and chemically resistant refractory compound of boron and nitrogen. It exists in various crystalline forms that are isoelectronic to a similarly structured carbon lattice. The hexagonal form corresponding to graphite is the most stable and soft among BN polymorphs and is therefore used as a lubricant and an additive to cosmetic products.

 Boron nitride is a white solid material in the as-produced hot pressed form. It is a low porosity solid. It is easily machined into complex shapes using standard carbide tooling. The material is anisotropic in its electrical and mechanical properties due to the platy hexagonal crystals and their orientation during the hot press consolidation.

 Boron nitride is often referred to as “white graphite” because it is a lubricious material with the same platy hexagonal structure as carbon graphite. Unlike graphite, BN is a very good electrical insulator. It offers very high thermal conductivity and good thermal shock resistance. BN is stable in inert and reducing atmospheres up to 2000°C, and in oxidizing atmospheres to 850°C.

Applications of Boron nitride

Because of its excellent thermal and chemical stability, boron nitride ceramics are traditionally used as parts of high-temperature equipment. BN can be included in ceramics, alloys, resins, plastics, rubbers, and other materials, giving them self-lubricating properties.

Lubricant

Hexagonal boron nitride is used as a lubricant for paint, cosmetics, pencil lead and dental cement. Even in the absence of gas or water molecules in the compound layer, it has lubricity, making it a good component of the vacuum system. Compared with graphite, boron nitride has better chemical stability and conductivity.

Equipment in high-temperature environment

Its excellent heat resistance allows the compound to be used in a variety of applications involving extremely high temperatures. Hexagonal boron nitride is used to improve the lubricating properties of rubber, plastics, alloys and ceramics.

For plastics, the inclusion of BN components can reduce thermal expansion. It can also be integrated into semiconductor substrates and microwave oven windows.

Boron nitride is an effective ingredient in reaction vessels and crucibles due to its thermochemical properties.

Semiconductor industry

The bandgap of boron nitride ranges from 4.5 to 6.4 eV, making it an excellent wide gap semiconductor material. Its inherent thermal and dielectric properties make it a suitable substrate for the development of metal oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFET) and semiconductors.

Grinding and cutting tools

Due to the physical properties of cubic boron nitride, this polymorph is used as an abrasive for nickel, iron and certain alloys, while diamond is considered inappropriate (for example, at high temperatures). Its cubic BN form is incorporated into cutting tools and grinding equipment.

With the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the market is increasingly worried about the potential disruption of Russia's energy supply. Geopolitical premiums have pushed up the price of crude oil and natural gas, and the energy price is expected to remain high in the short term. Affected by this, the market price of the boron nitride may continue to rise.
