Sodium Silicate is estimated to reach US$ 6.1 $Billion in 2019

Date: 2016-09-12

Rising demand for detergents and cleaning agents is expected to increase demand for sodium silicate in the near future. In addition, increasing demand for sodium silicate in the construction & building materials industry coupled with rising number of water treatment projects is likely to drive demand for sodium silicate during the forecast period. 

According to research Sodium Silicate Market is estimated to reach US$ 6.1 $Billion in 2019, augmenting at a CAGR of 2.7% between 2015 and 2029. However, competition from substitute products such as soda ash could restrain growth of the sodium silicate market.

Sodium silicate is a white powder that is readily soluble in water, producing an alkaline solution. It is one of a number of related compounds which include sodium orthosilicate, Na4SiO4, sodium pyrosilicate, Na6Si2O7, and others. All are glassy, colourless, and soluble in water.

Sodium silicate is stable in neutral and alkaline solutions. In acidic solutions, the silicate ion reacts with hydrogen ions to form silicic acid, which when heated and roasted forms silica gel, a hard, glassy substance.

Sodium silicate is extensively used in the manufacture of detergents, soaps, and silica gel. It is also utilized in the construction industry as a binding agent for building materials as well as in bleaching of paper, de-inking of waste paper, detergency, drilling fluids, adhesives, water treatment, foundry, and soil solidification. Additionally, it is used in foundries, refractories, and welding industries, and as a deflocculant in the ceramic industry. Furthermore, it has various applications in pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries.
