Introduction to Fumed Silica Markets

Fumed silica (pyrogenic silica) is a function reinforcement agent and improves anti-sagging and abrasive properties. With robust demand growth for smartphones, cosmetics, semiconductors, chemicals, and other end-user verticals, the demand for fumed silica is set to grow steadily.

 

Global Fumed Silica Market Size Outlook (US$ Billion) and Growth Forecasts (%), 2021- 2030

Fumed Silica Market Size Outlook to 2030

The global fumed silica market is estimated at $1.43 billion in 2022. The market is forecast to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.44% between 2023 and 2030. By end of the forecast period in 2030, the global fumed silica market revenue is likely to be $2.18 billion.

 

Fumed Silica Market Trend- Steady growth signs in fumed silica industry are identified during 2023

A positive outlook for the global fumed silica industry presents strong support for investment opportunities. For instance, Evonik industries continue to develop its planned fumed silica plant in Zhenjiang New Material Industry Park (Jiangsu Province, China). The 8,000 metric tons plant will be developed by Evonik Wynca (Zhenjiang) Silicon Material Co., Ltd, a joint venture between Evonik and Wynca Group.

Though the negative impact of COVID-19 led to a decline in revenue generated by companies, the market outlook over the long term remains strong. Early recovery signs are being observed in the industry. For instance, Tokuyama reported increased revenues during 2022, driven by an increase in Fumed silica revenues and sales.

 

Hydrophilic fumed silica registered more sales than hydrophobic fumed silica worldwide

Hydrophilic (untreated) fumed silica provides superior performance benefits compared to hydrophobic products. Advantages such as anti-thickening, anti-scratch, abrasion and corrosion resistance, anti-caking, and absorbency factors support the market demand for hydrophilic fumed silica. It offers purity, and insulation properties at low costs, which supports significant market growth.

It finds a wide range of applications across adhesives and sealants applications, agriculture, coatings, composites, pharmaceuticals, silicone sealants, personal care products, and other industries. As fumed silica improves manufacturing, quality, and performance, most end-users including the paints, and coatings industry are opting for fumed silica. In addition, the pharmaceutical industry uses fumed silica as an excipient.

Fumed Silica Market Share- Hydrophilic, Hydrophobic

Market Drivers- Silicone elastomers dominate the global fumed silica market

Fumed silica is a versatile product and finds applications across wide end-user industries. Among key applications, silicone elastomers stood as the dominant user of fumed silica.

Fumed silica or pyrogenic silica improves mechanical strength in high-performance polymeric materials. Higher loadings of the product impart better tensile properties and hardness in silicone elastomers. Further, Coatings, paints, inks, Adhesives and Sealants, Unsaturated Polyester Resin (UPR), Pharmaceuticals, Personal Care, and others also widely use fumed silica.

 

Recent Fumed Silica Market News and Developments

For most companies, earnings from fumed silica increased owing to higher prices in 2022 but an upswing in raw material costs was observed

Evonik, Wynca JV inaugurated fumed silica plant at the Zhenjiang New Material Industry Park in Jiangsu province in China in 2021

Canada-based company- Pyrogenesis Canada Inc. obtained $0.7 million in funding from the Canadian government to develop a new plasma process for the production of fumed silica.

HPQ Silicon and PyroGenesis form a joint venture to develop a new process for reducing the energy used to make fumed silica by 86%.
