The report "Sodium Silicate Market by Form (Solid Sodium Silicate, Liquid Sodium Silicate), Application (Detergents, Precipitated Silica, Construction, Pulp & Paper, Water Treatment, Metal Casting, Food Preservation), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022", published by MarketsandMarkets™, the sodium silicate market is expected to grow from USD 8.91 Billion in 2017 to reach USD 11.03 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.4% between 2017 and 2022. The sodium silicate market is driven by the rising demand for sodium silicate from applications such as detergents, precipitated silica, construction, pulp & paper, water treatment, metal casting, and food preservation.


Solid sodium silicate is estimated to be the largest form of sodium silicate 

Solid sodium silicate is the largest form of sodium silicate produced. It suitable for a wide range of applications such as manufacturing of refractories, ceramics, and firestop devices due to its easy and low-cost transportation and storage compared to liquid sodium silicate. Most of the solid sodium silicate is converted into the liquid form by dissolving in water for use in applications such as detergents, precipitated silica, pulp & paper, and water treatment.

Detergents application: fastest-growing application for sodium silicate 

The sodium silicate market size for the detergents application is projected to register the highest growth during the forecast period. The consumption of sodium silicate in this application is growing due to the rising demand for sodium silicate for the manufacturing of detergents that are used for various cleaning and washing processes, such as domestic or industrial clothes washing; floor cleaning; washing of dishes, bottles, dairy equipment, and locomotives; and metal cleaning and degreasing.

Asia Pacific accounts for the largest share of sodium silicate market 

Asia Pacific is estimated to be the largest market for sodium silicate. China is estimated to be the leading market for sodium silicate in Asia PacificIndiaJapan, and South Korea are the other major countries contributing to the growth of the sodium silicate market in the region. The increasing demand for sodium silicate from applications such as detergents and construction is expected to drive the sodium silicate market in these countries.

Nippon Chemical Industrial used expansions as its major strategy to increase its presence in the Southeast Asian market. In August 2017, Nippon Chemical Industrial established a new company JCI in Thailand through a joint venture with local capital. With this expansion, the company aims to expand its business in Southeast Asia, majorly in Thailand.

Tokuyama Corporation used mergers as its major strategy to strengthen its sodium silicate business. In February 2017, Tokuyama Corporation made an absorption-type merger (simplified merger) with its wholly-owned subsidiary Tokuyama Siltech (Japan). The company expects to increase the business of sodium silicate with this merger.

IQE Group used acquisition as its major strategy to increase its sodium silicate production capacity. In November 2015, IQE Group acquired the silicate division of PeroxyChem (US) that includes the silicate production line located at the La Zaida plant and the Zamudio factory in Spain. With this acquisition, the company has increased its production capacity and reduced its competition in Spain.
