Active Calcium Silicate Market Overview:


According to MRFR analysis, the Active Calcium Silicate Market is projected to reach USD 208.7 million at a healthy CAGR of 5.10% during the review period.

Active calcium silicate is a polysilicate compound which is produced from three raw materials­—
limestone, sodium silicate, and hydrochloric acid. It is considered as a safer alternative to asbestos in high-temperature insulation applications. Grade piping and industrial equipment are fabricated from active calcium silicate. It exhibits unique characteristics, such as high mechanical strength and better water absorption. In addition, it exhibits excellent thermal shock resistance and low thermal conductivity, which makes it ideal for industrial high-temperature insulation. It is sold in the form of boards, blocks, and powder which used in technical applications in construction, oil & gas, and automotive industries.
The recent recovery in the construction industry after the economic recession and growing spending on residential and commercial construction projects is the major factor driving the global market growth. Rising demand for the passive fire protection and acoustic insulation coupled with various regulations imposed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) for better safety features to the building structures is further expected to augment the market growth. In addition, increasing consumption of active calcium silicate in high-temperature insulation in glass, steel, and petrochemical industries in the building walls, electric furnaces, and blast furnaces is likely to boost the overall market growth in the coming years. Growing government spending for better safety standards and construction initiatives is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market players. In addition, growing R&D investments to enhance the fire resistance and non-combustibility characteristics to widen its application in fire protection industry is expected to further drive the global market growth in the following years. Also, increasing concerns regarding inactive fire insurance and burns in chemical industries have further created opportunities for the manufacturers of active calcium silicate. However, high exposure of active calcium silicate to humans can cause health risks such as skin eruptions, throat itching, and eye redness, which is likely to hinder the market growth in the coming years.


Regional analysis:


The global active calcium silicate market has been studied across five key regions, namely Asia-Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East & Africa. The market in Europe accounted for the largest share and is projected to register a high CAGR during the review period owing to the stringent regulations pertaining to the fire safety standards in residential and commercial buildings. In terms of volume, fire protection application was the fastest-growing segment with a high CAGR of 6.7% by the end of 2025. Germany is the major contributor in the region and is likely to surpass USD 17.6 million by 2025 owing to the rising demand for fireproofing cladding for the prevention against smoke, flames, and fire. Italy, France, Belgium, and the UK are other key regional contributors. Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing regional market owing to the high number of  construction activities and rapid industrialization. China is the leading country in the region owing to the growing infrastructure spending on highways, flyovers, commercial complexes; and increasing fire protection measures in residential buildings. India, South Korea, and Japan are the other significant contributors. The North American market held a substantial share in 2018 due to the high consumption of active calcium silicate for insulation and ceramic boards applications. The US is the prominent country in the region on account of increasing consumption for the product in paints and coatings industry. The market in Latin America is estimated to register a healthy CAGR owing to the increasing government initiatives and improving fire standards in the region. Brazil, Mexico, and Argentina are the key contributors. The market in the Middle East & Africa is likely to register a steady CAGR on account of growing consumption of the product in oil refineries. Saudi Arabia and Turkey are the primary countries contributing to the market growth in the region.

Recent Development

November 2020: According to research, cement makers are undertaking a variety of changes. To manufacture concrete, providers combine cement powder with sand and gravel, then add water, sparking a series of chemical processes that transform the pasty mass into the strong, rock-hard solid that is so frequently used in building. The hydration of tricalcium silicate in cement, an exothermic event that releases calcium and hydroxide ions and generates calcium silicate hydrate, a phase that gives the synthetic rock its strength, is one of the key processes. Concrete is similarly strengthened by a similar reaction with dicalcium silicate. Cement makers have continuously improved the energy efficiency of the massive kilns used for heating and processing the raw materials required to make cement by leveraging on engineering breakthroughs, according to the CEO of the World Cement Association, an industry trade organization. Increasing energy efficiency cuts down on fuel usage, lowering CO2 emissions.
