Report Synopsis
Specialty silicas, also known as synthetic amorphous silicas, are synthetic forms of silicon dioxide (SiO2). Specialty silicas currently available on the market include precipitated silica, fumed/pyrogenic silica, silica gel, and colloidal silica or silica sol. Specialty silicas can be manufactured by two methods: a thermal (vapor-phase hydrolysis) process – fumed/pyrogenic silica; and a wet process – precipitated silica and silica gel. Colloidal silicas are stable dispersions of synthetic amorphous silicas in a liquid, usually water.

Precipitated silica is the driving force for specialty silicas demand growth globally, which is projected to record a robust CAGR of 6% between 2019 and 2025. Fumed silica demand is forecast to register the second fastest CAGR of 4.8%, followed by colloidal silica with a CAGR of 4.7% and silica gel growing at CAGR of 4.4% during the analysis period. Global specialty silicas market is estimated at 3.9 million metric tons, valued at US$9.2 billion in 2018.
