PrecipitatedSilica Market: Introduction
The global precipitatedsilica market was valued at US$ 3.5 Bn in 2018 andis anticipated to expand at a CAGR of ~4% during theforecast period. Among applications, the rubber segment held a major share ofthe global precipitated silica market in 2018. Increasein the demand for energy-efficient tires in the global automobile sector isanticipated to propel the segment during the forecast period. Energy-efficienttires filled with precipitated silica enable less fuel consumption with swiftvehicle movement. The precipitated silica market in Europe is likely to expandat a rapid pace during the forecast period, owing to increase in expenditure onthe construction of precipitated manufacturing facilities in the region.
Key Drivers of Precipitated SilicaMarket
Over thelast decade, energy-efficient tires have witnessed rise in the demand, as theyoffer low rolling resistance, reduce CO2 emissions, and decrease fuelconsumption; thereby controlling the pollution. Increase in the demand forpassenger car vehicles largely in developing nations is a major factorpropelling the demand for energy-efficient tires. The global automotiveproduction has increased by 15% since 2010.Focus on reduction of vehicle weight has been a key trend in the automotiveindustry so as to reduce CO2 emissions. Precipitatedsilica is being increasingly adopted by tire manufacturers as a reinforcement filler,owing to legislations on tire labelling and stringent regulations regardingenvironment protection. Precipitated silica offers high reinforcing ability andenhances fuel efficiency. On the other hand, carbon black has higher rollingresistance, which results in higher consumption of fuel. Thus, precipitatedsilica is used as a substitute for carbon black in the global tire industry toa certain extent. Thus, rise in the demand for energy-efficient tires isexpected to boost the global precipitated silica market in the near future.
Asia Pacific Leads PrecipitatedSilica Market
AsiaPacific dominated the global precipitated silica market in 2018.Dominance of Asia Pacific can be ascribed to increase in the demand forpassenger car vehicles in the region. By the end of the forecast period, AsiaPacific is projected to account for 34.17% shareof the global market, in terms of revenue. China has become a major consumerand manufacturer of precipitated silica in this region, due to large productionof tires in the country. The precipitated silica market in Europe is expectedto witness rapid growth during the forecast period, owing to introduction ofregulations on tire labelling. Furthermore, increase in the spending onconstruction and capacity expansion of precipitated silica facilities with theintroduction of several initiatives by regulators to minimize carbon pollution,save fuel costs, and reduce the number of tire-related crashes are other fewkey factors anticipated to propel the market during the forecast period.
