MARKET OVERVIEW - GLOBAL GREEN SILICA MARKET

Green silica is an alternative to conventional silica. Green silica is more environment-friendly, as it needs lesser energy compared to the traditional silica production procedures and uses waste as a base material for silica. Green silica is primarily used in the manufacturing of tires, cosmetics & personal care products, industrial rubber, footwear, food products, and paints & coatings among others. Green silica is produced using the green synthesis method. The green synthesis of silica has been widely discovered over the past few decades, as silica compounds found in commercial products can cause harmful effects on human health. This calls for substitute methods to produce silica that are cheaper, safer, and more environmentally friendly. Some of the agricultural wastes proven to contain silica include sugarcane bagasse, rice husk, coconut husk, bamboo leaves, and coconut shells. 

MARKET DRIVERS 

The key factor driving the market growth is the rising use of green synthesis approach and increasing application areas of green silica and an increase in demand for green silica in automobile tire production. Silica and silica nanomaterials have various applications in the field of lightweight aggregates, drug/gene delivery, tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, catalytic applications, cancer diagnosis/therapy, and energy storage. There is a growing demand for eco-friendly synthesis of silica nanomaterials and silica with adequate safety, cost-effectiveness, scalability, simplicity, reliability, and manageable particle size distribution features. These materials can be efficiently obtained from numerous agricultural sustainable bio-resources, including sugar cane, rice husk ash, wheat husk, coffee husk, and corn cob ash. Using sustainable and green techniques can cause to reduce or eliminate complicated/laborious procedures and minimize the environmental contaminants to achieve advanced materials for high-tech applications. 

MARKET OPPORTUNITIES

The global Green Silica market is expected to grow due to the growing Industrial Rubber Industry. The rapidly growing market for industrial rubbers and surged demand for eco-friendly rubber are boosting the market growth. In industrial rubber application, green silica confers superior durability and strength on industrial rubber belts and rubber hoses together with enhanced tear strength and heat resistance. It also increases adhesion in fabric and wire coat compounds and allows for easy and rapid processing, resulting in smooth finished surfaces in molded products. 

MARKET RESTRAINTS

The major restraining factor for the global Green Silica market is the lack of awareness regarding green tires in emerging economies. The customers are well-aware of the advantages of using hybrid and CNG vehicles; however, there is a dearth of awareness concerning the benefits of green tires and the part it plays in minimizing fuel consumption. In developing countries such as Indonesia and India, the general consumer is less focused on the advantages provided by green tires made of green silica. This acts as a considerable restraint for the green silica market in the automotive tire industry. However, increasing government initiatives to increase consumer awareness regarding green tires and bio-based products is likely to overcome this challenge in the coming years.  

MARKET GROWTH CHALLENGES

The major growth challenge for the market is the availability of alternatives and sluggish growth in industries like paints and paper may act as restraining factors for the market. Rolling resistance of the tires can be reduced by further enhancing the grip when specialty silica is combined with tire rubbers, hence decreasing the fuel consumption.
