KEY FACTORS SHAPING COLLOIDAL SILICA MARKET
Electronics & Semiconductor and Paints & Coatings Industries to Shape Revenue Growth
Colloidal silica is leveraged as an abrasive polish in the electronics & semiconductor industry. Capturing around one-third of overall market value, the end-use industry continues to attract significant stakeholders’ investments. Colloidal silica is also used as a solvent in water-based paints & coatings, which are suitable for application in dry as well as wet surfaces, and reduce environmental pollution. The paints & coatings industry is aggressively moving towards an eco-friendly approach. Consequently, market players are targeting the paints & coatings industry for outsized returns.
Pharmaceutical Industry to Offer Potential Value-capture Prospects
Colloidal silica is used as a chemical excipient for the production of pharmaceutical tablets, including paracetamol, and animal pharmaceuticals. The compound improves the stability of moisture-sensitive active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), and is thus grabbing significant attention of pharmaceutical manufacturers. In addition, colloidal silica finds immense use in tablet making as a disintegrant, adsorbent, glidant, or anti-caking agent, to allow the smooth flow of powder during the development of tablets.
COVID-19 to Hinder Growth of Colloidal Silica Market
The electronics & semiconductor industry is the key contributor to the revenue of the global colloidal market. However, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is posing deep implications for the global supply chain. The pandemic has brought with it quarantines, travel restrictions, and stock market uncertainties. These events will severely impact the year-on-year (YoY) growth of the electronics & semiconductor industry, worldwide, and thus, will have a negative impact on the colloidal silica market in the near term.
Colloidal Silica Market: Structure Analysis
- The colloidal silica market is expected to witness intense competition in the years ahead, with a strong presence of manufacturers at both, regional and domestic levels.
- Market players are focusing on product customization for enhanced business footprint.
