Precipitated silica will continue to account for more than two-thirds of worldwide specialty silica demand through 2021.
Zhengzhou, China (PRWEB) February 19, 2014
iAbrasive, a famous trade platform for abrasives and abrasive products, recently indicates in a survey that precipitated silica will continue to account for more than two-thirds of worldwide specialty silica demand through 2021, above average growth will be fueled by the adoption of “green tires”.
According to the survey, “green tires”, as a dominant factor, will boost the the average growth of specialty silica product. New tire labeling regulations in the EU, Japan, and South Korea will increase demand for precipitated silica in tire treads, where precipitated silica lowers rolling resistance (improving fuel economy) and improves wet grip. Demand for fumed silica will be boosted by an acceleration in non-tire rubber demand -- and in particular silicone rubber -- in industrial applications. Silica sol will increase at an average pace, benefiting from the acceleration in the manufacturing sector, which will boost demand for silicas in refractories, metals, and textiles. Demand growth for silica gel will be limited by market maturity in applications such as food and beverages and cat litter, restraining overall growth.

Silica demand in non-tire rubber applications will be in line with average silica demand, as the economic recovery will aid industrial rubber products demand. Strong gains will also exist in the chemical and industrial processing markets. The cosmetics and toiletries, food and feed, and smaller markets will post less rapid gains, as those markets have realized maturity in developed countries.
