Key Insights on Competitive Landscape in Global Specialty Silica Market: Ken Research

Few Global Players Dominate the Market despite the Presence of about ~200 Competitors Comprising a Large Number of Country-Niche Players and Some Specialist Players, finds a recent market study on the Global Specialty Silica Market by Ken Research

Specialty silica is manufactured in the form of round pebbles or fine powders and is further used as key additives in the formulation of several products for various end-use industries such as automotive, electronics, inks, coatings, and personal care products. Silica is a compound of silicon and oxygen (SiO2), two of the most common elements in the earth’s crust. Silicon dioxide occurs naturally as agate, sand, quartz, cristobalite, and flint. It is one of the major constituents of dental porcelain, and in granular form serves as a dental abrasive and polishing agent.

Ken Research shares 3 key insights on the competitive landscape of this dynamic market from its latest research study.

Global Players Constitute ~10% of the Total Number of Competitors, While Country-Niche Players Dominate Representing ~55% of Total Competitors.

A comprehensive competitive analysis conducted during the Research Study found that the global specialty silica market is competitive with ~200 players, including globally diversified players, regional players, and many country-niche players. The country-niche players comprise about ~55% in terms of the number of companies followed by regional players with ~35% of the total competitors. The players in the industry are manufacturing different types of specialty silica such as precipitated silica, fumed silica, fused silica, silica gel, and colloidal silica to be used in various different applications including rubber, plastic, paint & coatings, electrical & electronics, agricultural & feed, food & beverages, personal care, and others.
