Specialty Silicas

As Quoted In Cosmeticsdesign.com

US specialty silica demand is projected to increase 3.7 percent annually through 2013, led by healthy advances in the large precipitated silica segment. The tire rubber market will expand at an above-average rate, reflecting greater us of precipitated silica in the production of “green” tires, which offer increased fuel efficiency and enhanced performance.

This study analyzes the $1.4 billion US specialty silica industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by product (e.g., precipitated silica, fumed silica, silica gel, silica sol, fused silica) and market (e.g., rubber, cosmetics and toiletries, chemicals, coatings and inks).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 28 industry players, including PPG Industries, Evonik Industries and Cabot.
