Fumed silica (SiO2) is a white powder chemically synthesized by the pyrolysis method wherein silicon tetrachloride (SiCl4) reacts with oxygen (O2) in a flame. It helps enhance the thermal, rheological, and mechanical properties of adhesives, such as thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). Consequently, it is employed in the food and beverage (F&B), personal care, construction, and chemical industries across the globe.
The thriving automotive sector represents one of the key factors bolstering the growth of the market. Besides this, there is an increase in the use of SiO2 as a flow additive for powder coatings worldwide. In addition, it is utilized as a desiccant, stabilizer, and thickening and anti-caking agent in pharmaceutical products, cosmetics, paints, and sealants. Apart from this, SiO2 is employed as a reinforcing agent in the manufacturing of silicone elastomers to increase toughness, hardness, tensile strength, and resistance against tear and abrasion. These elastomers are used in electrical insulation as sheets, tapes, wires and cable coverings, and extruded sleeving and moldings. Furthermore, the gelling process in conventional gel electrolytes, such as non-thixotropic gels, is permanent and non-reversible, which does not allow gels to adapt to changes in batteries. However, the gelling process of SiO2 is reversible on account of its thixotropic properties. As a result, it finds extensive applications in commercial lead-acid batteries to form a gel. Moreover, as it is more cost-effective than its substitutes, the demand for SiO2 is rising around the world. Some of the other factors, including rapid industrialization and the increasing focus of leading players on research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to fuel the growth of the market in the upcoming years.
