Specialty silica comprises silica (SiO2) and is manufactured in various forms such as round rocks and sawed or cut squares or fine powder. It is utilized as a key additive substance in detailing of few items and segments manufactured in a wide scope of end use businesses, for example, automotive, hardware, inks, coatings, and others. Specialty silica is set up by the response of alkaline silicate solution with the sulfuric or hydrochloric corrosive. sodium silicate and sulfuric corrosive solutions are additionally added to water. By virtue of its high retention limit and large surface zone, it is utilized as non-reactive filler. It is additionally used as a thickening and reinforcing operator in adhesives. Specialty silica is widely utilized in the production of the transport just as transmission belts, wherein it gives abrasion resistance, high elasticity, and improves tear resistance. Along these lines, tremendous demand for specialty silica in the rubber, food, healthcare, coatings, plastics, and abrasives and refractories, agrochemicals defoamers, plastics, and adhesives and sealants. 

COVID-19 scenario analysis:

  • The global market for specialty silica is severely impacted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. 
  • The COVID-19 pandemic led to a decline in the economic growth in almost all major countries, thus affecting consumer spending patterns. 
  • Owing to the lockdown implemented across various countries, national and international transport have been hampered, which has significantly impacted the supply chain of numerous industries across the globe, thereby increasing the supply–demand gap.
  • Thus, insufficiency in raw material supply is expected to hamper the production rate of specialty silica, which negatively impact the market growth.

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers, and Impact Analysis

Rising disposable income, particularly in developing economies of Asia-Pacific, drives the elements of automotive industry in the region. Rising demand for specialty silica in personal care and cosmetics products items inferable from its properties, for example, anticaking, UV ensuring and dispersive nature will push the specialty silica market in is utilized as an anti-blocking agent for manufacturing thermoplastic films. It is additionally utilized as a matting specialist in paints and varnishes. Moreover, it goes about as an anticaking operator and as a carrier for vitamins and nutrient in food and health items. It is likewise utilized as a drying specialist in securing a wide variety of items during shipment and capacity. However, the market is restrained by the high cost of colloidal silica and availability of low-cost substitute hinders the growth of the market. China and India are nations with wide manufacturing industries, which create great opportunities for the specialty silica market.

New product launches to flourish the market 

There has been expanded demandfor the silica from the tire business to make green tires. Subsequently to effectively fulfil this demand the Evonik Industries SE, declared the dispatch of ULTRASIL 7800 GR. It is specially customized silica made by Evonik for use in especially large SUV tires such as high-mileage all-season tires. Because of its higher explicit surface area, ULTRASIL 7800 GR adds further solidness to the tread compound, yet stays simple to process.

Surge in usage in tire applications

Specialty silica is significantly utilized in the tire production owing to its very high purity and low dampness absorption. It has better electrical properties than rubber items. Specialty silica has a superb reinforcing impact particularly improving the tear resistance. Furthermore, specialty silica is generally utilized in Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) and High Temperature Vulcanized (HTV) elastic that requires high mechanical strength and great electrical protection. In industrial rubber goods, specialty silica is utilized for decreasing hysteresis loss in transport lines or as an active filler in coloured rubber or in items with great contact.
