Specialty Silica Market was valued at USD ~5.1 billion in 2016 after growing at a CAGR of ~6.1% from 2016 to 2030.
Specialty silica market is growing steadily with various applications of the same in rubber, paints & coatings, agriculture, personal care & cosmetics, food & beverage, electronic components and others. With such wide application, automobile industry will always be the top application segment for specialty silica owing to production of tires and efforts taken towards reducing carbon emission. In addition, growing concern of depletion of fossil fuels and strict emission rules, automotive industries are shifting to use green tires that will have positive impact on specialty silica market. However, the market will be restraint by factors such as high cost of colloidal silica and availability of low cost substitutes during the forecasted period 2022. Specialty silica shows cyclical behavior. So, low cost substitute will affect the continuity of profit margin and revenue generation which is a major challenge for manufacturers in specialty silica.
Specialty Silica consist of five basic types silica which includes precipitated silica, fused silica, fumed silica, silica gel and colloidal silica which are extensively used in end user industries such as rubber, agriculture, paints & coatings, electronic components, personal care & cosmetics and others. Rising demand for specialty silica in personal care & cosmetics products owing to its properties such as anticaking, UV protecting and dispersive nature will push the specialty silica market in future. Furthermore, developing regions like China and India are showing high growth in the construction industry as well as in infrastructure which calls for the rise in demand for paints & coatings. These are one of the key application of specialty chemicals and has boosted the demand for the same in developing regions. Owing to properties such as high tensile strength and abrasion resistance, specialty silica is highly used in rubber industries which are expected to boost its demand in forecasted period.
There has been a growth in the concern regarding the low availability and depletion of fossil fuels that are likely to present the global market with excellent opportunities for growth to dwell upon during the forecast period. The rising demand from the construction industry especially from the activities undertaken in the developing regions has good growth in store for the market operations.
