Precipitated and Hydrated Silica Market Segmented By type such as Precipitated Silica, Precipitated Silica with function such as Anti-Caking Agent, Thickening Agent, Absorbent, Others
The changing lifestyle, industrialization, and increasing urban population especially in developed and developing countries, demographic changes with decreased number of persons per house have created a demand for processed food products, especially in smaller packages.
The increase in the demand for processed food increases the demand for various anti-caking as well as thickening agents. Anti-caking agents like Precipitated and Hydrated Silica are thus used to avoid lumping problems in powdered ingredients and confectionaries.
Precipitated Silica, an amorphous form of silicon dioxide, is white powdery material produced by precipitation of solution containing silicate salts. Hydrated silica is a form of silicon dioxide which has some amount of water. Precipitated and Hydrated Silica shows wide range of applications across number of industries like Automobiles, oral care, cosmetics, agrochemicals, paint, food, and beverages, etc.
With the large number of applications across various sectors the market for Precipitated and Hydrated Silica is expected to grow at good rate over the forecast period.
