Global Silicon Dioxide (SiO2) Market: Key Takeaways

  • The North America region gained the largest portion of the revenue in 2021
  • The amorphous segment to dominate the revenue graph
  • Food & Beverage segment remains prominent in the end users segment

Increasing Production of Silicon across the World to Boost Market Growth

Silicon dioxide (SiO2), also referred as silica, is a natural compound that consists of two materials procured from the earth's crust, i.e., silicon (Si) and oxygen (O2). It is generally sourced from water, plants, animals, and from the earth's crust, wherein, the earth's crust alone accounts to 59% of total available silica. Silicon dioxide (SiO2) is a translucent, shapeless solid, with no fragrance. Silicon dioxide (SiO2) is used in the construction of industry as a building material, microelectronics, fiber optics, and solar panels. It was noted that global silicon production amounted to an estimated total of approximately 8.7 million metric tons in 2021. This figure marks the peak of global silicon production before the period of forecast. Hence, backed by the wide usage of silicon dioxide, and increasing production of it around the world, the global silicon dioxide (SiO2) market is estimated to be propelled significantly.

In addition to this, silicon dioxide is used widely in healthcare sector to make health supplements. Owing to the rapid expansion of healthcare sector across the globe, the global silicon dioxide (SiO2) market is anticipated to experience a significant growth over the projection period. Additionally, increasing rate of researcher pool's expansion, and growing expenditure on research works worldwide for continuous improvement of SiO2 products are estimated to significantly fuel the growth of the market. According to a report published by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, between 2014 and 2018, the researcher pool grew at a rate of 13.7%, which is three times faster than the global population. This depicts into 8,854 million full-time equivalent (FTE) researchers by 2018. In 28 countries, researcher density expanded by at least 20% over this period.

Global Silicon Dioxide (SiO2) Market: Regional Overview

The global silicon dioxide (SiO2) market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa region.

Growing Healthcare Advancements throughout the Region Propelled Market Growth in the North America Region

The silicon dioxide (SiO2) market in the North America region witnessed modest growth in the year 2021, on the back of technological development and increasing use of silicon dioxide (SiO2) among industries. It is further estimated to elevate substantially over the forecast period on the back of the presence of a developed healthcare industry, the easy availability of better medical facilities, backed by the favourable medical policies in the region. As SiO2 is significantly used in a good quantity to make health supplements, the growth of healthcare sector is highly anticipated to positively influence the market growth. In addition to this, growing healthcare expenditure in overall GDP over the region is also expected to boost the market growth. As per the data by the World Bank, as of 2019, the current health spending accounted for 16.32% of GDP in North America.

Increasing Industrialization in the Asia Pacific Region to Propel the Regional Market

On the other hand, the market in the Asia Pacific region is estimated to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period. The growth of the market can be attributed to the availability of resources and investment platforms, along with the growing industrialization & development in the region. Additionally, the proper maintenance of buildings and development in microelectronics industry are certain factors that are anticipated to show growth in the market. According to the U.S Geological Survey (USGS), in the Asia Pacific region, China accounted to an approximate of 68% of the global estimated production of silicon material in the year 2020.
