Surging deployment of unsaturated polyester resin in the development of filled plastic and fiber reinforced plastics products, including gratings, sanitary-ware, pipes, tanks, and high-performance parts for the transportation and marine industry has added significant traction to the demand of fumed silica. Moreover, unsaturated polyester resins are also applicable in coatings and adhesives industry which is further boosting the adoption of fumed silica.
 

On the other hand, the spike in the demand for beauty & personal care products such as makeup and face creams, sunscreen lotions, dental powders, and hair care products that utilize fumed silica, will amplify revenue influx for this industry in the ensuing years. Despite the upward trajectory, the increasing threats from substitutes, including precipitated silica and micro fibrillated cellulose will negatively impact the product demand to some extent.
