Specialty silica is manufactured in several forms like round rocks and cut squares or fine powder. It is used as a key additive substance and manufactured in a wide scope of end-use businesses, for instance, automotive, hardware, inks, coatings, and others. Specialty silica is generally used in the production of a rubber tire in the automotive industry as it helps to reduce carbon emissions. Likewise, automotive industries are shifting to use green tires because of the rising concern of depletion of fossil fuels and severe emission rules, which will have a positive impact on the global specialty silica market.


Increasing application of specialty silica in personal care & cosmetics products because of its properties such as anticaking, UV protecting, and dispersive nature is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period. Silica is widely used as a cleaning and whitening agent in the manufacturing of several personal cares & cosmetics products. The high grade of specialty silica that is used in the dental application offers high cleaning to abrasion ratio which is likely to raise its demand across personal care & cosmetics products. The usage of silica for new applications is expected to drive growth opportunities for the specialty silica market. For instance, in August 2019, Evonik Business Line Silica has launched a new specialty product, SPHERILEX 145, for the oral industry.


The increasing investment by prominent players for improving the production of silica is expected to offer potential growth opportunities for the specialty silica market. For example, in April 2019, BASF has invested mid-range double-digit euro million sums in the innovation of its silica plant at the Düsseldorf-Holthausen site. The investment is allocated for the innovation and development of existing facilities in the future.


The precipitated silica product type segment held the largest market share in 2018


By product type, precipitated silica held the market share of around 72.3% in terms of revenue, in 2018 followed by fumed silica and colloidal silica, individually. The colloidal silica product segment is expected to hold the largest market share in the specialty silica market throughout the forecast period. This is mainly because of increasing demand for end-use applications such as catalyst, paper & textile applications, tobacco treatment, rubber, ceramics, and pharmaceutical applications is expected to boost the demand for colloidal silica over the forecast period.


The rubber application segment is estimated to be the largest application segment during the forecast period.


The rubber application segment is estimated to be the largest application segment in the global specialty silica market during the forecast period. This is mainly because the properties of specialty silica like high tensile strength and scratch resistance are expected to boost the demand for specialty silica in rubber industries. As well, the demand for green tires in North America and Europe region is expected to fuel the specialty silica market.


Asia-Pacific dominated the global specialty silica market in 2018


Asia-Pacific region dominated the global specialty silica market in 2018, recording a 72.5% market share in terms of revenue, followed by Europe and North America, correspondingly. This is mainly due to the rising automotive industry in developing economies like China and India and this has led to tire industry growth which is expected to boost the specialty silica market in the Asia Pacific region. Hence, it offers bigger opportunities for manufacturers of specialty silica in emerging economies.


North America is estimated to be the second-largest market, on account of the rise in demand for cosmetics and food & beverage industries.
