Sodium Aluminum Silicate Market Segmented By application such as Food & Beverages, Fertilizers, Detergents, Metal finishing, Water treatment chemicals and Personal care
Sodium aluminum silicate is a compound and is a series of unstructured hydrated sodium aluminum silicate with variable proportions of Na2O, Al2O3, and SiO2. Sodium aluminum silicate is manufactured by precipitation process and reacting aluminum sulfate and sodium silicate.
The functional uses of sodium aluminum silicate are anticaking agent. Sodium aluminum silicate is a food additive which the manufacturers are using to improve the quality of the product. The compound helps in improving the aspects of food, such as color, texture, flavor, and shelf life.
Sodium aluminum silicate transpires naturally. It is the salt of the mixture of silicon, sodium, aluminum, and oxygen. For the usage in food, it is manufactured unnaturally in a variation of chemical compositions according to numerous applications.
Food grade Sodium aluminum silicates are used as the food additive due to the rising demand for the food & beverages. The food grade Sodium aluminum silicates are used as food additives they have the properties such as protecting capacity sequestration and water retention capability. Another factor, driving the Sodium aluminum silicate market is the increase in demand from the developing countries owing to the changing customer preference and the increasing spending capacity of individual consumers in these regions.
Increasing crop production has further enhanced the sales for Sodium aluminum silicate market. Other factors such as the growth in meat consumption owing to rising demand for animal feed, rising demand for water treatment chemicals are few other factors driving the sales for Sodium aluminum silicate market.
However, the greatest challenge in the global Sodium aluminum silicate market is the diminishing supply of phosphate. Another major challenge in the market is the stringent regulations related to the usage of Sodium aluminum silicate in detergents.
The global Sodium aluminum silicate market is segmented by application into:
The global Sodium aluminum silicate market is segmented majorly into two segments namely, by application and by source. By application, the segment is further sub-segmented into food & beverages, personal care, fertilizers, detergents, metal finishing, and water treatment chemicals.
The fertilizer segment is anticipated to account for the largest share. The primary reason being the need for higher agricultural production on the limited available arable land is expected to enhance the sales for Sodium aluminum silicate for the manufacture of fertilizers.
