Silica gel (SiO2) is an amorphous and porous form of silicon dioxide (silica) with high specific surface area around 800 m2/g which allows it to adsorb water making it a perfect drying agent. It consists of an irregular three-dimensional framework of silicon and oxygen atoms with nanometer scale voids and pores. It is produced by acidifying aqueous solution off sodium silicate to form gelatinous precipitate which is further washed and dehydrated to get colorless silica gel. For visible indication, ammonium tetrachlorocobaltate or cobalt chloride is added to silica gel.
Rising demand for silica gel from various end use industries such as pharmaceutical, oil and gas, and petrochemical is a key factor driving growth of the global silica gel market. In addition, increasing demand for silica gel from packaging industry, owing to its chemical stability and non- toxic nature is another factor expected to fuel growth of the global market to a significant extent over the forecast period. However, availability of substitutes such as activated charcoal, activated clay, etc. is a factor expected to hamper growth of the target market to a certain extent.
The North America silica gel market accounts for highest share in terms of revenue in the global market and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. This dominance can be attributed to increasing adoption of silica gel for various applications in industries such as petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and packaging. The Europe market accounts for significant share in the global silica gel market in terms of revenue and is expected to witness significant growth in next 10 years. The Asia Pacific silica gel market is expected to witness highest growth and is expected to register a CAGR of X.X% during the forecast period.
