DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Fumed Silica Market by Type (Hydrophilic, Hydrophobic), Application (Paints & Coatings and Inks, Adhesives & Sealants, Pharmaceuticals, UPR, Gel Batteries, Lighting), and Region (North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe) - Global Forecast to 2022" report to their offering.
The fumed silica market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period, in terms of value
The growth of this market is mainly attributed to the rising awareness regarding the benefits of fumed silica in varied applications, such as paints & coatings and inks, adhesives & sealants, pharmaceuticals, UPR, gel batteries, and lighting, among others. Owing to the increasing applicability of fumed silica, its demand is growing significantly across the Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America. However, the high price of fumed silica is restraining the growth of the fumed silica market. Emerging countries such as India, China, and Brazil are considered to be price sensitive markets, and thus, they prefer the adoption of cheaper alternatives to fumed silica.
Fumed silica is increasingly utilized in the paints & coatings and inks application, owing to its high-performance properties. It is used for printing inks, water-based paints, and powder coatings.
Fumed silica is produced by the vapor-phase hydrolysis of silicon tetrachloride in a hydrogen-oxygen flame. The obtained product is hydrophilic fumed silica, which when treated with silanes results in the formation of hydrophobic fumed silica. Although hydrophilic fumed silica is increasingly utilized owing to its low cost, the demand for hydrophobic fumed silica is expected to grow in the near future, due to its excellent properties and wide applicability across varied end-use industries.
