Market Dynamics

What is the key growth driver for the market?

“Increasing usage in detergent and soap production is significantly boosting market growth”

The use of sodium silicate ranges within a large number of industries such as textile processing and metal cleaning, dairy equipment, floors, bottles, automobiles, and floors. Liquid sodium silicates are incorporated within synthetic detergent compositions to minimize corrosion and alkali attack. Without the use of sodium silicate, the detergent compositions would be corrosive to zinc, aluminum, and other metal alloys in washers. Synthetic detergent composition silicate may also glaze the surface of fine china and porcelain decorations. Therefore, a rise in demand from the soap and detergent industry will bolster the growth of the liquid sodium silicate market.

How is the adhesive nature of liquid sodium silicate creating opportunities in construction industries?

“Usage of sodium silicate as an adhesive in the construction industry to augment growth”

Sodium silicate is an excellent bonding agent for sealing fiberboard boxes, as its ability to firmly hold together the flaps requires low time. A wide range of advantages of liquid sodium silicates includes suitable viscosity, good setting properties, high strength, easy wetting of the surfaces to be held together, and controlled penetration. It is primarily used as an adhesive, due to its ability to change from a liquid state to a semi-solid state, as required without compromising on excess water consumption. Liquid sodium silicate used in the binders of cement increases the cement’s heat and temperature resistance. It also increases the waterproofing ability of the cement. Liquid sodium silicate will see a rise in demand from the adhesives and construction industries.

What are the growth restraints to the liquid sodium silicate market?

“Inherent Acidic pH of liquid sodium silicate can retard the market growth”

The pH of liquid sodium silicates ranges from 11.2 to 12.7, which makes it irritable to mucous membranes, skin, and eyes. If it comes in contact with the eyes, it can lead to pain, irritation, and conceal burns, which might lead to blindness. The psychological effects of the contact of liquid sodium silicate and eyes depend on the alkalinity of the silicate causing irritation to chemical burns. Inhaling mists or their musty odor of them can lead to moderate effects such as cough, pain, and choking. Sodium silicate is not stable in aquatic systems but is acutely toxic to aquatic life. It has exhibited low to medium toxicity to aquatic organisms and low toxicity to terrestrial organisms. High pH levels of liquid sodium silicate can therefore hamper the growth of the liquid sodium silicate market.

Category-wise Analysis

Which molar ratio segment holds the largest market share?

“1.6 to 2.8 (alkaline) segment holds the largest market share owing to its application in detergents”

Based on the molar ratio, the liquid sodium silicate market is segmented into 1.6 to 2.8 (alkaline) and 2.8 to 3.3 (neutral) categories. As per the PMR analysis, the alkaline segment is anticipated to hold a prominent market share. These sodium silicates are widely used in detergent, soap, welding electrodes, textiles, and other purposes. This usage is growing with the rising demand for these materials in their end-use industries.

On the other hand, the usage of neutral sodium silicate is growing at a rapid pace. It is used in pharmaceutical applications, toilet preparations, adhesives, and other applications, which will bring high growth prospects in the coming years.

What is the prominent application segment for liquid sodium silicates?

“Detergents to remain a prominent application segment throughout the forecast period”

Based on their applications, the liquid sodium silicate market is segmented into detergents, paper production, cement and binders, silicate adhesives, petroleum processing, metal production, and others. According to the PMR analysis, the detergent segment holds around 40% of the market share. In particular, the alkaline form of sodium silicates is extensively used in detergent applications. With the rising global population and increasing trend of urbanization among several countries, the demand for detergents is expected to stay high over the course of the forecast period, which will spur the worldwide demand for liquid sodium silicates.
