Global Sodium Silicate Market: Snapshot
The global sodium silicate market is gaining momentum due to a multitude of applications of sodium silicate across a host of end-use industries. Sodium silicates are used as adhesives, binders, detergents, additives in cleaning products, unique coatings, coagulant aids, catalyst bases, chemicals, deflocculates, zeolites, and cements to name a few across various industries. For instance, sodium silicate is used as a binder in the construction sector, whereas precipitated silica is used as reinforcement fillers in tire applications to serve the demand for green tires.
Apart from this, in several parts of the world, rising disposable incomes and changing consumer preference have been instrumental for the expansion of detergents and cleaning agents market. The rising awareness about the importance of staying healthy is leading to the increasing demand for cleaning products. Sodium silicate if used as an additive enables to maintain effective pH level during cleaning operations. This in turn, boosts the effectiveness of soaps and surfactants and detergency of cleaning products.
A report by Transparency Market Research (TMR) anticipates the global sodium silicate market to expand at a lackluster 1.92% CAGR for the forecast period between 2016 and 2025. Progressing at this rate, the market which stood at US$4.9 bn in 2016 will become worth US$5.81 bn by 2025 end.
