Precipitated Silica Market, By Application (Reinforcement Filler & Softeners, Defoamer, Rheology Mod

Published Date: | Report Code : MT1952236


The Precipitated Silica Market is projected to register high demand during the forecast period with increasing demand from major end-use industries such as rubber & plastics, healthcare, paints & coatings, food processing, etc during the forecast period. 

Precipitated silica, which is a white powdery form of silica, contains a high concentration of silanol group and is the second most widely used reinforcing filler after carbon black. Precipitated silica is produced by the controlled neutralization of dilute sodium silicate solution by either concentrated sulfuric, hydrochloric or carbonic acids in an agitated vessel to produce a slurry of amorphous silica particles. Major raw materials required for the production of precipitated silica are sand, soda ash, acid, caustic soda, water, and a small amount of silica gel also produced during the process. The reaction temperature is required to control to obtain a better particle size and porosity of the precipitated silica material.

The demand for precipitated silica is growing with the growth of the industrial rubber and tire industry. In the rubber industry, precipitated silica is used as a reinforcing filler that improves durability, flexural resistance, and impact resistance. Precipitated silica also improves the dimensional stability that prevents the rubber component or tire from mechanical damage. The rubber and tire industry is experiencing high growth with the increasing production of new vehicles and high replacement rates in heavy-duty vehicles. Economic development, along with increasing spending, also power attributes a huge demand for personal and passenger vehicles in emerging economies. This growth further enhances the tire industry by stimulating the high demand for precipitated silica. The demand for pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, and other agricultural products is also increasing and precipitated silica is used as an agrochemical. The growth of the agricultural market will propel market growth.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Widely used in the rubber and tire industry due to properties, such as a tear, tensile, and abrasion resistance
  • Minimizing pollution and environment-related issues by replacing carbon black as a filler
  • Demand from various end-use industries, such as rubber & tire, pharmaceutical, agrochemical, and paints & coatings in APAC
  • Growth of personal care and cosmetics industries in emerging economies
