Global Fumed Silica Market By Overview

Introduction:      

Fumed silica is an amorphous compound produced by flame hydrolysis synthesis, which involves burning carbonaceous coal in a furnace containing oxygen gas at high temperatures. The gaseous substances condense on the existing precipitated silica particles, resulting in fumed silica, fumed silica is also alternatively known as pyrogenic silica and has the chemical formula Sio2. The fumed silica composition consists of very small particles with low density and large surface area for effective and strong solidification effect. Fumed silica is widely used in various industries, such as adhesives and sealants, food and beverages, personal care, and paints and coatings. Furthermore, fumed silica is also used as an anticaking and thickening agent in the food and beverage industry. Fumed silica acts as a universal thickening agent, a thickener in milkshakes and an anticaking agent in powdered foods. Like silica gel, it acts as a desiccant. It is used in cosmetics for its light-scattering properties, it is also used as a mild abrasive in products such as toothpaste. Fused silica is a completely synthetic material and technically has the characteristics of any glass, and it often starts from pure silicon dioxide, silica fume is added to Portland cement concrete, specifically to improve its compressive strength bond strength and abrasion resistance properties. Fumed silica is a type of silica that contains fine droplets of amorphous silica and is used worldwide as a common thickening agent and anticaking agent in powders. Demand for excipients, an inert ingredient and additives used in the manufacture of various drugs such as paracetamol and others has fueled the demand for fumed silica.

Global Fumed Silica Market By Dynamics

Growing demand for fumed silica from the rubber and coatings industry is one of the major factors driving the growth of the global fumed silica market over the forecast period. Increasing adoption of fumed silica as a reinforcing filler material in silicone elastomers is expected to drive the global fumed silica market due to its mechanical properties, such as tensile strength, elongation and tear resistance. The silica market is driven by steady growth in industrial production attributed to rising disposable income and rising consumer spending and rising construction and infrastructure spending. This is also a factor driving the growth of the global fumed silica market. Additionally, the cost-effectiveness of fumed silica compared to precipitated silica also supports the growth of the global fumed silica market. The cyclical behavior of various end-use industries such as the automotive industry affects the growth and profitability of the fumed silica market, which poses a major challenge to market players and acts as a restraint to the growth of the global fumed silica market.

Technological advancement

The fumed silica industry is maintaining a high growth trajectory for various verticals, advanced technology and its hardware market for paint and coating demand. Increasing investments in the pharmaceutical business and technological advancements are other factors contributing to the growth of the market during the forecast period. Manufacturers involved in the fumed silica market are developing advanced versions of their products due to the technological advancements in the new age. Key fumed silica players are investing more in power systems and creating more modern, time-saving, cost-effective technologies that are positively impacting the fumed silica market. In October 2022, HPQ Silica POLVERE Inc., HPQ is developing a new plasma-based process that allows fumed silica to be transported directly to quartz, eliminating the use of hazardous chemicals in the manufacture of fumed silica and eliminating hydrogen chloride gases associated with its production.

Global Fumed Silica Market By Segmentation

The Fumed Silica Market is segmented based on type, application, and region.

Fumed Silica Market, By Type

On the basis of type, the Fumed Silica Market is segmented into Hydrophilic and Hydrophobic. The hydrophilic nature of fumed silica is due to the attachment of hydroxyl groups on the silica atoms to the surface of the particle; the product is now capable of hydrogen bonding which makes it dispersible in water. Hydrophobic silica can be used to treat other surfaces to become hydrophobic, due to the morphology of the particles adhering to their host, the silica particles then modify the surface of its host material resulting in a hydrophobic surface.

Fumed Silica Market, By Application

On the basis of application, the target market is classified into Paints, Coatings & Inks, Adhesives & Sealants, Pharmaceuticals, UPR, Gel Batteries, Lighting and Others. Fumed silica finds its use in end-use industries such as paints and coatings, automotive, adhesives and sealants, food industry and more. The fumed silica market is expected to grow in the coming years due to increasing demand from end-use industries, particularly the paint and coatings industry.
