Published Date: February 2, 2018 Authors: Kiran Pulidindi, Hemant Pandey
Sodium Silicate Market size is forecast to exceed USD 10 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights.
Sodium silicate is an acid salt which is a combination of sodium, oxygen, and silicon. It has a range of applications including food & healthcare, pulp & paper, elastomers, drilling fluids, coating, textiles, silica gels, pottery, paints, foundry, wood processing, and refractories.
Sodium silicate market is majorly driven by rising consciousness among consumer regarding basic hygiene and sanitation amenities which is positively inducing the detergent market. Sodium silicate is one of the building agent used for manufacturing detergent. In addition, its excellent properties offer balanced pH level and crispiness to detergent beds increasing the overall effectiveness of detergents. Rise in global demand for detergents products is augmenting the sodium silicate market over the forecast period. Infrastructure and construction activities are growing at a faster pace in the developing economies. Growing building & construction activities worldwide will enhance the product demand owing its usage for porosity reduction in concrete.
Sodium silicate has an extensive application as a catalyst, and it is gaining a significant market revenue owing to consumption in petrochemical refineries. Increasing oil rigs in the U.S. reassures high exploration activities and accelerate huge investments in the oil & gas industry, which will accelerate market growth over the coming years. The application of water glass in catalyst cracking and transesterification operations for producing biodiesel is intensely increasing to meet the growing fuel demand, which will noticeably influence global sodium silicate market revenue till 2024.
