The North America sodium silicate market is expected to reach USD 1.05 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. North America sodium silicate industry is expected to grow on account of high product demand in mining, water treatment and agriculture applications.
The industry is expected to be highly competitive owing to the presence of major manufacturers including PQ Corporation, PPG Industries, and OxyChem Corporation which dominate the market. High production capacities, wide geographical reach and distribution network offered by these players give them a competitive edge over their counterparts.
The industry players are likely to increase their investment in R&D to enhance product quality and reduce the cost to gain a higher market share. However, high transportation costs associated with liquid sodium silicate coupled with fluctuating raw material price is expected to impact the industry growth.
The majority of the players in the industry are involved in the captive consumption of the product to produce silica gel, precipitated silica and zeolites in order to tap the rising consumer demand. The scope for the sodium silicate production using an innovative bio-based raw material such as rice husk is expected to open new avenues for the industry players.
