Global fumed silica market to surpass $1.8 billion by 2029

  2/14/2020 - Pune, India - Fumed silica, also known as pyrogenic silica, has steadily gained traction in the last century. Owing to its pyrogenic production processes, fumed silica possesses an array of fascinating properties which have found widespread utilization in industrial applications. The emergence of trends in drug manufacturing, in tandem with performance improvements in drugs and capsules, will additionally spur sales of fumed silica. Although fumed silica companies continue to find opportunities in paints and coatings, healthcare and personal care products, it is silicone rubber that will expand profit pools of fumed silica manufacturers. Fumed silica for silicone rubbers is well positioned to dominate the demand pie and will capture close to 2/5th demand share by 2029, reveals a recently published report on the global fumed silica market. The global fumed silica market is projected to grow at a steady CAGR of around 5 percent, and is forecast to surpass $1.8 billion by 2029, according to FactMR. The global fumed silica market is anticipated to create a value opportunity of around $9 billion during the forecast period, adding 1.6 times more value in 2029 as compared to 2019. Increasing demand for architectural coatings, followed by OEM coating applications, is expected to drive the hydrophobic fumed silica sales in the coming years. Despite losing slight market share by 2029, silicone rubbers have continued their dominance throughout the forecast period; however, paints and coatings and unsaturated polyester resins have been growing at a faster CAGR. North America accounts for largest market share in global fumed silica market on the backdrop of remarkable development in regional rubber, paint and coating industries. China is showcasing the highest penetrative reach in new markets and accounts for around one third share of overall sales in the global fumed silica market. The global fumed silica market is highly consolidated in nature, with Evonik Industries accounting for a 35-40 percent share in the global fumed silica market in 2019. “(The) shift of fumed silica manufacturers towards greener production processes has been a key market trend. Thus, rapid adoption of sustainable and eco-friendly fumed silica products is foreseen to give impetus to growth of the fumed silica market,” says a report analyst. The fumed silica market is highly consolidated in nature, where top players account for a significant share in the overall supply of fumed silica across the globe. The global market is characterized by the presence of relatively few manufacturers and numerous end users. This disparity between the number of end users and producers tends to tilt the balance in favor of the latter. Thus, key stakeholders emphasize overseas business development and sales apart from the domestic market to get higher cuts in cost margins. Furthermore, strategic collaborations and long term raw materials supply agreements have also been prime focuses of key players.
