Fumed Silica Price Trend

Fumed Silica Market Analysis

The global fumed silica market size reached US$ 1.3 Billion in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 2 Billion, at a projected CAGR of 4.60% during 2023-2032.

  • Fumed silica is useful in the automotive, cosmetic, construction, electronics, and pharmaceutical sectors. The rush in demand stems from the pursuit of lightweight materials, heightened performance, and elevated product standards. Besides, the expanding cosmetic industry which reached US$ 400.6 billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach US$ 618.7 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.8% during 2024 to 2032, according to the report published by IMARC GROUP, is escalating the demand for fumed silica. It is used in the cosmetic industry as a thickening agent, suspending agent, and matting agent that offers constancy, texture, and higher sensory properties.
  • Presently, due to the growing emphasis on sustainability and eco-consciousness, industries are gravitating toward environmentally friendly alternatives. Fumed silica, recognized for its inertness and non-toxic attributes, emerges as a preferred choice in myriad applications. For instance, HPQ’s Silicon, a Quebec-based industrial issuer with its FSR technology promises an astonishing 87% reduction in energy use and 84% reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions compared to traditional processes aligning with global efforts to combat climate change.
  • As global urbanization and infrastructure projects gather momentum, the construction sector emerges as a significant consumer of fumed silica. The upsurge in demand spans diverse applications such as agriculture, coatings, adhesives, and sealants, aligning with escalating construction ventures worldwide. For instance, in January 2024, Evonik received a responsible care award for its sustainable biosurfactants platform from the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic). Moreover, Evinok offers a liquid formulation of agrochemical products that improve the safe handling of the active ingredients, with aerosol-fumed silica acting as a rheology modifier for liquid pesticide formulations. It alleviates several effects by stabilizing active ingredients in the liquid formulation and adjusting viscosity by forming a three-dimensional network of fumed silica links which portray settling effects and minimized efficiency.
  • Manufacturers are steadfastly channeling resources into research and development (R&D) endeavors aimed at enhancing the properties and functionalities of fumed silica. This encompasses the development of surface-modified and functionally diversified fumed silica variants tailored to meet evolving end-user requisites, thereby propelling market expansion. For example, Evonik unveiled the expansion of its new plant complex in Antwerp for the manufacturing of fumed silica. Also, the specialty chemicals company can now serve the high demand for fumed silicas marketed under the AEROSIL® brand. Some of the typical applications include transparent silicones, paints and coatings, advanced adhesive systems, and nonflammable high-performance insulation materials.

Product Description

Fumed silica, or pyrogenic silica, stands as a finely dispersed, amorphous, and synthetic form of silicon dioxide (SiO2). Its creation involves the vapor-phase hydrolysis of silicon tetrachloride (SiCl4) within a flame fueled by hydrogen and oxygen.

During the manufacturing process, silicon tetrachloride undergoes combustion in a flame composed of hydrogen and oxygen. This chemical reaction leads to the formation of minute silica particles, which subsequently aggregate to form the desired fumed silica structure. The resultant material comprises highly porous nanoparticles boasting a significant surface area.

The versatile nature of fumed silica renders it indispensable across a spectrum of industries, including adhesives and sealants, coatings and paints, pharmaceuticals, polymers and plastics, personal care products, and the food and beverage (F&B) sector. Its multifaceted utility stems from its ability to enhance rheological properties and fortify structural integrity.

Europe Fumed Silica Price

The Europe region has experienced a bearish price trend owing to a year-long downward trend as the manufacturing industry struggled with sharply declining backlogs, purchase activity, and new orders. Moreover, potential building projects were deterred by the market's significant decline in the construction industry and rising borrowing rates in November. The low demand was partly caused by the surplus supply of fumed silica, which outstripped domestic needs. The building industry's downturn led to a notable decline in fresh orders for producers of fumed silica. The largest price changes were observed in the Belgian market, as the prices dropped by 3% from the previous quarter.
