Sodium silicate, commonly known as liquid glass or water glass is widely use in various industrial and commercial applications. It is a compound containing sodium oxide and silica. Sodium silicate is an inorganic chemical prepared by combining various ratios of soda ash and sand at high temperature. This process yields a variety of products with unique chemistry which are used in various consumer and industrial applications.

This study provides a detailed description of the global sodium silicate market in terms of revenue (US$ Bn) and volume (Million Tons) for the forecast period of 2017 to 2025. To provide the comprehensive view of the market the study includes a detailed raw material price trend analysis along with the market attractive proposition analysis where in applications are benchmarked based on attributes such as growth rate, attractiveness and market size.

Rising demand for cleaning agents and detergents from emerging economies is the major factor driving the market growth. Sodium silicate is also widely used in petrochemical industry as cracking catalyst. Furthermore, increasing investment in oil & gas refinery processing is projected to augment demand for the product over the forecast period of 2017 to 2025. However, fluctuating prices of the raw materials and presence of various substitutes is hampering the market growth.

The global sodium silicate market can be categorized on the basis of application as:

  • Detergents
  • Catalysts
  • Pulp & Paper
  • Elastomers
  • Food & Healthcare
  • Others (Including agriculture, dyes, and coatings)

By applications in 2016, detergents segment led the market with a 31.81% share in terms of revenue and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.2% over the forecast period of 2017 to 2025. However, owing to market saturation and emergence of liquid detergents sodium silicate is projected to show lower penetration in this application.

Elastomers segment is projected to exhibit fastest growth and is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 3.4% from 2017 to 2025 in terms of revenue. The product is widely use in various end industries such as rubber and tire manufacturing. Furthermore, rapid growth of automotive industry in Middle East, Asia Pacific and Africa is projected to stimulate the market demand for sodium silicate over the forecast period. Owing to high investment in oil & refinery processing the demand for sodium silicate from the catalytic application was valued 0.96 billion in 2016 and is projected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period.

Sodium Silicate Market

On the basis of geography, the global sodium silicate market is segmented as per following regions and countries

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • Germany
    • France
    • UK
    • Italy
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • China
    • India
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
    • Brazil
    • Mexico
    • Rest of Latin America
  • Middle East & Africa
    • GCC Countries
    • South Africa
    • Rest of Middle East & Africa

In 2016 in terms of revenue, Asia Pacific dominated the industry accounting over 45.0% of the global demand. China and India are the major regional market in Asia Pacific. The detergent and soap industries in these countries is witnessing double digit growth rate and generated over US$ 35.0 billion in 2016. Consequently, demand for sodium silicate in the detergent application is projected to grow over the forecast period of 2017 to 2025.

Owing to over capacity of the market the demand for sodium silicate in North America is projected to grow at a below average growth rate. Over the past few decades detergents have been the largest application segment for sodium silicate and valued over US$ 1.91 billion in 2016. Owing to emergence of liquid detergents the market share of sodium silicate in the detergent application has been declining and thus, hampering the product demand. 

The Europe market is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increased adoption of sodium silicate in various industries such as pulp and paper, oral and health care.
