Sodium silicate is obtained by reacting sodium carbonate (or soda ash) and silica at a temperature ranging from 1200°C to 1400°C. After the reaction, a colorless compound comprising oxides of silica and sodium is derived. Sodium silicate is the generic name given to a range of compounds obtained from soluble silicate glasses. These compounds are sold commercially in the market but in the form of a 20% to 50% aqueous solution.
The report states that sodium silicate boasts numerous applications across industries. The key applications include water treatment, detergents, building and construction materials, and pulp and paper. Furthermore, for years, sodium silicate has been used as an excellent adhesive to seal fireboard boxes. It is also extensively used to stabilize borehole wells by drilling fuels. According to the study, the rising demand for cleaning agents and detergents around the world is likely to augment the demand for sodium silicate over the report’s forecast period. Additionally, the demand for the compound has also significantly risen for application in construction and building materials industry, due to the increasing number of water treatment projects. This creates a lucrative prospect, which the global market for sodium silicate is anticipated to capitalize on in the near future.
Despite exhibiting a steady rise in demand, the prevalence of cutthroat competition is likely to hamper the growth prospects of the global market for sodium silicate in the near future. Nevertheless, the growing demand for enhanced oil recovery of (EOR) due to the implementation of energy conservation policies, introduction of the latest technologies, and high fuel prices will open new growth avenues for the market in forthcoming years.
Among the segments based on application, detergents led the market with a 35% share in 2014. However, the report forecasts the elastomers segment to exhibit growth at the fastest pace during the report’s forecast period. Furthermore, segments such as healthcare, catalysts, and food are also likely to exhibit above-average growth during the forecast period.
To study the vendor landscape of the market, the report also profiles some of the leading companies such as BASF SE, Evonik Industries AG, PPG Industries, PQ Corporation, W.R. Grace & Company, and Tokuyama Europe GmbH.
