DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 22, 2022--

The “Colloidal Silica Market- Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Opportunity, and Forecast, 2017-2027 By Product Type (Alkaline Colloidal Silica, Acidic Colloidal Silica, Modified Colloidal Silica, Ordinary Colloidal Silica), By Application, By End User Industry, By Region” report has been added to’s offering.

The global colloidal silica market stood at USD 801.74 million in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.07% during the forecast period on account of increasing demand from various end user industries, especially the semi-conductor industry.

Colloidal silica is required by different industries, such as in casting & electronic industries, as a polishing agent, in healthcare industry as drugs and medicine, for treatment agents, and in paper industry, for improving the quality of products in paint industries.


Need for Advancement in Manufacturing Process

In order to meet the demand for colloidal silica created by different end user industries, it is required to make changes in the existing manufacturing process of colloidal silica. Additionally, new innovations and advancements are also required in terms of machinery and equipment which is used to produce colloidal silica. All electronics goods need colloidal silica as a polishing agent or in different ways. Hence, the consumption of colloidal silica in enterprises will be directly impacted. So, the colloidal silica market is expected to grow at an impressive rate.

Colloidal silica can be used as surface toner and cleaner in paper industries; in the acrylic industry it is used as a supplement for polish, coating, and paints to enhance its weather and abrasion resistance, an extra add-on in cosmetics and food industries, the active chemical ingredient in medicines such as paracetamol, and in automobile industry for better resistance, for making green tires and many more. Government policies for green tires will help colloidal silica capture more markets. The intensive and vast use of colloidal silica is expected to make it a highly demanded product in industries during the forecast period.

Increasing investment in R&D

Increasing R&D to find new uses for silica-based products makes this more attractive. Recently, many companies have set up their R&D plants around the globe to have an edge over other players operating in the industry and also to improve their positioning in the market.


In January, 2022, Innovative Chemical Technologies Inc. begun production of specialty colloidal silica sols at their Augusta, Georgia manufacturing facility. This manufacturing unit will help market segments such as paper, coating and paints, industrial and architectural coating, foundry& casting catalyst, and many other industries.

In November 2021, Nouryon announced a new manufacturing facility in Green Bay, Wisconsin, U.S.A. This facility is planned to meet the requirement of the construction and packaging industries.
