Silica, which is the most plentiful mineral found in the crust of the earth, is a chemical compound generally known as silicon dioxide (SiO2). Silica is commonly found in nature in the form of quartz. Silicon dioxide is typically procured by mining and refinement of quartz. Silica-based products can be categorized into four major types, namely, precipitated silica, colloidal silica, fumed silica, and silica gel. Each type has its own industrial applications. Specialty silica is mainly used in rubber; personal care products; food, feed, and agricultural products; plastics; ink, paints, and coatings; and adhesives and sealants.
During 2017, the precipitated silica segment accounted for the major market shares and dominated the market. Precipitated silica has applications across various industries including rubber, automotive tires, food and beverage, cosmetics and personal care, animal feed, oral care, and coatings and paints. The rising demand for precipitated silica from Brazil and several countries in APAC will drive the growth of this market segment.
According to this market research report, the rubber application segment dominated the specialty silica market during 2017. The growth of the automotive industry that demands the need for tires and the rise in demand for other products such as conveyor belts, railway pads, and shoe soles, will boost the market's growth prospects in this segment.
