High Price Volatility of the Raw Materials Used In The Manufacturing of Colloidal Silica Continues To Remain a Key Concern says Fact.MR's Report
Colloidal Silica Market
Fact.MR has recently compiled a study of the colloidal silica market, which sheds light on a slew of factors that shape the market growth. The historical and forecast numbers, in terms of value (US$ Mn) and volume (tons), are offered, along with analysis of the most influential trends in the marketplace so as to enable the clients buying the study to develop winning business strategies.

Award winning market research company Fact.MR has published a report on the global colloidal silica market. As per its findings, the market is expected to witness a gradual incline through 2021, attributed to the cessation of production activities of key end-use industries amidst the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. The market is expected to make substantial gains in the long-run, expected to grow at a 6% CAGR across the forecast period.

According to the report, the market received major tailwinds in the historical period, with global sales being valued at over US$ 800 million in 2018. These were largely recorded across the coatings, electronics and construction industries respectively. Hence, manufacturers have introduced differently graded colloidal silica products in various forms.

For instance, Nouryon Chemicals manufactures the Levasil colloidal silica which enhance corrosion resistance for metal surface treatment and metal coatings. These Levasil colloidal silica grades are excellent binders for producing mechanically stronger coatings with excellent welding properties, especially for zinc-rich and shop-primer coatings. Similarly, Grace Davison Engineered Minerals manufactures the LUDOX colloidal silica coatings, ranging from 5 nm to 60 nm.

“Growing applicability across multiple end-use industries is causing the global colloidal silica market to widen its revenue prospects, as numerous manufacturers are seeking to expand their market footprints by introducing new and improved colloidal silica grades,” comments a Fact.MR analyst.
