Sodium silicate is a chemical compound prepared by thermal processing of sodium carbonate. It appears white and greenish in some cases. Sodium silicate is also commonly known as liquid glass or water glass. Sodium silicate is used in several end- user applications which includes paints & coating, dyes, masonry work, construction, detergents, drilling fluids, textiles, automotive and water treatment plants.
Global sodium silicate market is segmented on the basis of applications as pulp & paper, elastomers, food & healthcare, detergents, catalysts and others (including coating, agriculture, etc.). Sodium silicate acts as catalysts in several chemical reactions and as a binder in paints and coatings which increases its market growth significantly.
Water contamination has led to the spread of several water borne diseases which in turn has led to increased number of water treatment plants. Growth in the number of water treatment plant eventually augments rapid growth of sodium silicate market. Demand for efficient and cost effective detergents further surge high growth of this market. Moreover, growth of the automotive industry with the increased population in developing regions of the world are expected to open new opportunities for global sodium silicate market. Other end- user applications like agriculture and food and healthcare will further empower market growth for the forecast. High initial cost of raw materials are expected to hinder growth of this market.
This report is segmented by geography as Europe, Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America and Middle East and Africa. Asia Pacific is the leading geography of this market owing to increased number of water treatment plants in India and infrastructural development in China. North America and Europe are expected to show substantial market growth for the forecast. Key players in global sodium silicate market are PPG Industries, Tokuyama Europe GmbH, W.R. Grace & Company, Albemarle, BASF SE, PQ Corporation and Evonik Industries AG.
