Specialty Silicas

US specialty silica demand will grow 5.4 percent annually through 2011. The dominant rubber market offers the best prospects although the fastest gains will occur in the lower volume electrical and electronic equipment market. Fumed silica will lead gains by type based on its use in slurries that polish semiconductor substrates.

This study analyzes the $1.3 billion US specialty silica industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1996, 2001 and 2006| with forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by product (e.g.| precipitated silica| fumed silica| silica gel| silica sol| fused silica); and market (e.g.| rubber| electrical and electronic equipment| cosmetics and toiletries| plastics| coatings and inks).

The study also considers market environment factors| details industry structure| evaluates company market share and profiles 32 major players including PPG| Degussa| Cabot| Grace| Huber| C-E Minerals| Eka Chemicals| INEOS| Nalco| PQ Corporation| and Rhodia.
