Global Fumed Silica Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Sales Channel, Regional Demand, Company Share, 2015-2035
The demand for Fumed Silica has risen exponentially to reach over 250 thousand tonnes in 2021, and it is expected to further grow at a CAGR of 4.46% from now until 2035.
Fumed silica is formed in a flame and consists of minute amorphous silica droplets that have fused into branched, chainlike, three-dimensional secondary particles. Using the pyrolysis process, which involves the reaction of silicon tetrachloride with oxygen in a flame, fumed silica is generated. Fumed Silica is also known as pyrogenic silica and often employed as a thickening agent. It functions as a desiccant just like silica and employed as an anti-caking agent in various chemicals. Due of its property to diffuse light, it is utilized in cosmetic items. In items like toothpaste, it serves as a mild abrasive. Other niche applications of Fumed silica include adhesives, paints, coatings, printing inks, polyester resins, silicon elastomers, adhesives, sealants, and vacuum insulated panels.
The primary driver of Fumed Silica global market is the growing demand of coatings, paints, and adhesives that utilize Fumed Silica as a feedstock. With rapid urbanization, the demand for vehicles and finished goods is set to rise, which is anticipated to propel the Fumed Silica demand in the forecast period. In 2021, approximately 25% of global Fumed Silica was utilized by Adhesives & Sealants and is anticipated to further expand in forecast period. The global Fumed Silica is expected reach approximately 450 thousand tonnes by 2035.
Based on demand across the globe, the North America reported to be the biggest consumer of Fumed Silica market. The growth of the global fumed silica market is anticipated to be strongly affected by the rising demand for paints and coatings, which is due to the expansion of the automotive and construction industries, making up the Fumed Silica demand in North America. This region consumed nearly 30% of the global Fumed Silica in 2021. Europe and Asia Pacific stand next in the line as the prominent consumers of Fumed Silica.
