The sodium silicate market size is projected to reach USD 11.03 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.4%. Sodium silicate is a versatile inorganic chemical. It is produced as a white crystalline powder or in the form of lumps that are soluble in water. It is manufactured by melting sand/silicon dioxide (SiO2) and soda ash/sodium carbonate (Na2CO3) at a temperature above 1800 °F in a closed end furnace. Caustic soda/sodium hydroxide is used instead of sodium carbonate for the direct production of liquid sodium silicate. Sodium silicate is a non-toxic, non-flammable, and non-explosive chemical. It is a strong alkaline chemical having high pH ranging from 10 to 13. Its alkaline nature makes it preferable for various applications such as detergents, precipitated silica, construction, pulp & paper, textiles, paints, foundry, and water treatment. The increasing use of sodium silicate in various applications, such as detergents, precipitated silica, and pulp & paper, is expected to drive the market.

The sodium silicate market size for the detergents application is projected to register the highest growth during the forecast period. The consumption of sodium silicate in this application is growing due to the rising demand for sodium silicate for the manufacturing of detergents that are used for various cleaning and washing processes, such as domestic or industrial clothes washing; floor cleaning; washing of dishes, bottles, dairy equipment, and locomotives; and metal cleaning and degreasing.
Solid sodium silicate is estimated to be the largest form of sodium silicate
Solid sodium silicate is the largest form of sodium silicate produced. It suitable for a wide range of applications such as manufacturing of refractories, ceramics, and firestop devices due to its easy and low-cost transportation and storage compared to liquid sodium silicate. Most of the solid sodium silicate is converted into the liquid form by dissolving in water for use in applications such as detergents, precipitated silica, pulp & paper, and water treatment.
Asia Pacific accounts for the largest share of sodium silicate market
Asia Pacific is estimated to be the largest market for sodium silicate. China is estimated to be the leading market for sodium silicate in Asia Pacific. India, Japan, and South Korea are the other major countries contributing to the growth of the sodium silicate market in the region. The increasing demand for sodium silicate from applications such as detergents and construction is expected to drive the sodium silicate market in these countries.
The key companies profiled in the sodium silicate market research report are PQ Corporation (US), Occidental Petroleum Corporation (US), Tokuyama Corporation (Japan), Nippon Chemical Industrial (Japan), BASF (Germany), Kiran Global Chem Limited (India), Sinchem Silica Gel (China), Shijiazhuang Shuanglian Chemical Industry (China), IQE Group (Spain), and CIECH (Poland).
Nippon Chemical Industrial used expansions as its major strategy to increase its presence in the Southeast Asian market.
