Precipitated Silica Market to Reach US$ 5.9 Bn by 2029, Green Tires to Create New Revenue Streams

Developing regions of the world are expected to lead demand generation by the end of forecast period. Global precipitated silica market revenues will reach US$ 5.9 Bn by 2029 supported by a staggering growth rate of over 9% between 2019 and 2029. Market players are focusing on capacity expansion and product innovation to exploit the versatility of precipitated silica (SiO2).

Precipitated silica is witnessing increased traction from various end-use industries such as automobiles, cosmetics, construction, electronics, and agriculture. Investment in infrastructure, coupled with increasing disposable income will further the demand of precipitated silica used in manufacturing paints, coatings, cosmetics, and oral care products.

Surging automotive production will lead to an increase in demand for rubber tires which employ precipitated silica to enhance product performance. Similar demand trends can be traced back to adhesive & sealant products in lieu of the pivotal role that precipitated silica plays as a thickening agent and improving bond strength.
