used as a performance additive in the tyres. This leads to better resistance, rolling, and traction of
the tyres which makes the vehicle consume less fuel and perform better when compared to the use
of traditional tyres. In the electronic sector, specialty silica is being increasingly used for the process
of chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) and to soak the moisture out of the electronic
products. Such a wide range of application is expected to drive the overall development of the
global specialty silica market.
The in terms of the product type, the global specialty silica market can be segmented into fumed
silica, colloidal silica, precipitated silica, and silica gel. Of these types, the precipitated silica
segment is projected to dominate the market over the given forecast period.

Cyclic Behavior of End-use Industries Can be a Cause of Concern
However, there are some challenges faced by the global market for specialty silica. One of the chief
restraining factor for the development of the global specialty silica market is that it is relies heavily
on the end-use sectors. Some of these end use industries may show cyclic behavior. This is expected
to slow down the overall progress of the global specialty silica market. Also, in such conditions, it
becomes highly difficult to sustain a stable profit and revenue generation. This is also expected to
hinder the development of the global market over the given period of forecast.
