Silica flour is manufactured by grinding silica sand containing high silica content to a miniscule particle size. Minute-sized particles of silica flour make it suitable for applications including sodium silicate, fiberglass, reinforcing filler, and additives. These applications require high content of silica that is usually more than 95%. Besides these applications, silica flour is used in foundry work, ceramic frits and glaze, oil well cements, and glass & clay production. These are used in end-user industries such as glass, chemical, construction, oil and gas, rubber, and paints and coatings.

Get Sample of this Research Report:

Fiberglass was the largest application segment of the silica flour market, accounting for over 25% share in 2014. Additionally, it is expected to be the fastest-growing application segment, expanding at a CAGR of over 6% between 2015 and 2023. Apart from fiberglass production, silica flour is used in applications that necessitate high silica content. Silica flour is widely used in rubber and plastic industries as a reinforcing filler. Decent growth in rubber and plastic industries is anticipated to drive demand for silica flour in the reinforcing filler segment. Silica flour is also employed in chemicals such as sodium silicate. Broad application range of sodium silicate is also likely to boost demand for silica flour in developing regions. Glass and clay production is another major application segment of the silica flour market. The particle size between 40 and 120 (mesh size) of silica flour is highly suitable for glass making. Sustainable demand for glass in packaging and other downstream industries is also likely to fuel demand for silica flour during the forecast period. Demand for silica flour in oil well cementing is estimated to increase at a decent rate in the next few years.
