Sodium Silicate Market By Application (Detergents, Catalysts, Pulp & Paper, Elastomers, Others) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2015 - 2025

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. Growing number of water treatment projects along with rising demand for sodium silicate in the construction and building materials industry is providing new  avenues for growth in the sodium silicate market over the forecast period.

In 2016, detergents was the largest application segment, accounting for more than 30.0% share of the global sodium silicate market and is projected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period of 2017 to 2025. However, elastomers is projected to be the fastest growing application segment over the forecast period owing to rising demand from automotive industry.

In 2016, Asia Pacific was the largest regional market for sodium silicate in terms of value and volume, accounting for more than 45.0% share of the global market. It is also projected to be the fastest growing region during the forecast period. This growth is mainly attributed to the rising demand for sodium silicate from various applications such as detergents, catalysts, elastomers, and water treatment.
