Silica Gel Market(1)

Global Market Study on Silica Gel: Desiccants to Sustain Market Dominance over Other
Applications During 2017 - 2025
The demand for silica gel is witnessing a surge in agriculture, food & beverages, biotechnology, and
electronics, coupled with R&D labs and academic institutes. A recent report by Persistence Market
Research (PMR) estimates nearly 350 KT of silica gel to be sold globally in 2017. In terms of
volume, PMR’s report projects the global silica gel market to register 3.4% CAGR during the
forecast period 2017 to 2025. By 2025, global sales of silica gel are estimated to reach 447.04 KT.
Increasing Usage of Silica Gel in Chromatography will drive Market Growth in North America
In terms of volume, North America is expected to be the second-fastest growing market for silica
gel by 2025-end. To ensure consistency and good quality of food & beverages products,
quantifiable trials while developing new products, and during current group production of various
food & beverages products in North America. Chromatography has been an imperative method in
obtaining endured and unadulterated food & beverages products. High utilization of silica gel in
chromatography for research activities in pharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals is expected to
fuel demand for silica gels in North America.

However, high cost of silica gel, coupled with environmental regulations imposed by the U.S.
government which govern usage of silica gel will impede market growth in North America.
APAC to Remain the Most Lucrative Market for Silica Gel
Asia Pacific (APAC) will remain the most lucrative market for silica gel, with sales expected to
reach nearly 200 KT by 2025-end. The silica gel market in this region is projected to register the
highest CAGR through 2025. Scope for packaging industry in Asia Pacific is rapidly growing, with
small and big industries majorly focusing on their logistics. For protecting their products from
moisture, they are using silica gel as a desiccant. In addition, electronics sector is estimated to be an
emerging field for adoption of silica gel. With number of electronic enterprises growing rapidly in
APAC countries such as China, India, and Japan, demand for silica gel will witness a surge in these

However, availability of substitutes such as activated alumina, activated charcoal, activated clay,
and molecular sieves, are expected to restrain growth of silica gel market in APAC. As a
consequence of their versatility in applications and comparatively low cost, customers are
preferring adoption of these alternatives over silica gel.
Varied Application Scope of Non-indicating Silica Gel to Drive its Demand in the Global Silica Gel
By product type, non-indicating silica gel will continue to be sought-after in the market, with sales
expanding at a comparatively high CAGR than indicating silica gel through 2025, in terms of
volume. Growing demand for non-indicating silica gel is primarily attributed to its varied scope in
applications such as desiccant, plastics, personal care products, and paints & coatings.
In terms of volume, fine-pore silica gel is estimated to exhibit 3.9% CAGR through 2025, and will
remain dominant in the global silica gel market. In addition, sales of wide-pore silica gel and
medium-pore silica gel are expected to collectively account for 183.75 KT by 2025-end.
In terms of volume, desiccants will continue to be the largest application of silica gel, followed by
pharmaceuticals and paints & coatings. Pharmaceutical application of silica gel is expected to
register the highest CAGR through 2025. In contrast, application of silica gel in catalyst support
will exhibit the lowest CAGR through 2025, in terms of volume.
