Sodium Silicate Market for Detergents, Catalysts, Pulp & Paper, Elastomers, Food & Healthcare and Other Applications - Europe Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020
Europe Sodium Silicate Market: Snapshot
Sodium silicate is a colorless compound of oxides of sodium and silica. It is a white powder, which is readily soluble in water. It produces an alkaline solution. Sodium silicate is a generic name for a range of compounds derived from soluble silicate glasses that are water solutions of silicon dioxide and sodium oxide in various ratios. These compounds are commercially sold as 20% to 50% aqueous solutions.
The growing demand for detergents across Europe and the increasing demand for precipitated silica from the tire and rubber industry are some of the major factors that are projected to encourage the growth of the Europe sodium silicate market throughout the forecast period. In addition to this, the rising demand from the paper and pulp industry is another major factor, which is likely to accelerate the growth of the market in the near future.
According to the report by TMR, in 2013, the Europe market for sodium silicate was worth US$808.8 mn and is projected to reach a value of US$897.6 mn by the end of 2020. The market is likely to register a 1.50% CAGR between 2014 and 2020. On the basis of volume, in 2013, the Europe sodium silicate market stood at 1,005 kilo tons and is predicted to witness a steady rise throughout the forecast period.
Growing Automotive Industry to be Beneficial for Growth
