Sodium Silicate Market is expected to grow at Significant CAGR from 2019 to 2023 as per MRFR Analysis.
Sodium silicate is a white powder synthesized by melting sodium carbonate and sodium dioxide together. It is used in various applications such as silica manufacturing, detergents, pulp paper & board, construction material, water treatment, and soil stabilization. Sodium silicate is widely used in the manufacturing of silica.
Increasing use of sodium silicate in detergents due to good emulsifying and high buffering power is fuelling the product demand. Furthermore, rising health awareness among the consumers coupled with increasing per capita income is propelling the growth of sodium silicate. Growing demand from the textile industry for synthetic detergents, wetting agents, and soaps are driving the market growth. The product demand is enlarging in water purification by virtue of its corrosion inhibition property coupled with increasing environmental & climate concerns and population expansion. Sodium silicate used for corrosion control in municipal water is approved by the American Water Works Association. Additionally, BASF SE, one of the key players in sodium silicate market, has started a new production line of Ultrasion in Yeosu, South Korea for water purification. Growing paper industry as a result of increasing use of paper towels, tissue paper, and the corrugated board is driving the market growth. Sodium silicate demand is influenced by its use in bleaching and coating of recycled products. Furthermore, the regulatory standards set by the governments to use recyclable products with respect to reducing environmental issues is stimulating the product demand. Sodium silicate consumption in the construction industry is increasing as a result of resistance to water and high temperature. Moreover, use of sodium silicate is rising in tire manufacturing due to abrasion resistance.
