Report Synopsis
Precipitated silica offers several advantages in the production of tires compared to its counterpart carbon black. It improves tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and yields a lower rolling resistance and better wet grip at equal wear resistance than carbon black. In the tire industry, both conventional and highly dispersible precipitated silicas are used. Highly dispersible precipitated silica is used in tires due to its better dispersibility making it better reinforcing filler in tires than conventional precipitated silica. In response to the burgeoning demand from the tire industry for precipitated silica, several industry players such as Evonik, Solvay and PPG Industries has ramped their production capacities in the recent past.

Asia-Pacific is the largest region for the global precipitated silica market with 56.2% share in 2019, followed by Europe with 25.3%. The region is also forecasted to lead the growth of global precipitated silica market at a 2019 to 2025 CAGR of 7.6% to reach 2.3 million metric tons by 2025.
