Global Silicon Dioxide Market Overview:
Silicon dioxide (SiO2) is a natural compound, also known as silica, made of two of the earth’s most abundant materials, silicon (Si) and oxygen (O2). It is most often recognized in the form of quartz. Silicon dioxide is found naturally in water, plants, animals, and the earth. The earth’s coating is 59 percent silica and it makes up more than 95 percent of known rocks on the planet. It is even found naturally in the tissues of the human body. Further, silicon dioxide is also added to many foods and supplements. As a food additive, it serves as an anticaking agent to avoid clumping and in supplements, it is used to prevent the various powdered ingredients from sticking together. Some of the key players profiled in the study are Sigma-Aldrich Co. LLC. (United States), Alufluor AB (Sweden), Gelest, Inc. (United States), American Elements (United States), Golovach Quartz (Vietnam), Evonik Industries AG (Germany), Tosoh Silica Corporation (Japan), Kurt J. Lesker Company (United States), Sinosi Group Corporation (China) and Wacker Chemie AG (Germany).
On the basis of geography, the market of Silicon Dioxide has been segmented into South America (Brazil, Argentina, Rest of South America), Asia Pacific (China, Japan, India, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, Rest of Asia-Pacific), Europe (Germany, France, Italy, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Rest of Europe), MEA (Middle East, Africa), North America (United States, Canada, Mexico). If we see Market by Form, the sub-segment i.e. Amorphous will boost the Silicon Dioxide market. Additionally, the rising demand from SMEs and various industry verticals gives enough cushion to market growth. If we see Market by Source, the sub-segment i.e. Synthetic will boost the Silicon Dioxide market. Additionally, the rising demand from SMEs and various industry verticals gives enough cushion to market growth. If we see Market by End User, the sub-segment i.e. Chemical will boost the Silicon Dioxide market. Additionally, the rising demand from SMEs and various industry verticals gives enough cushion to market growth.
