In terms of value & volume, the hydrophilic segment is estimated to lead the fumed silica market in 2020.

The hydrophilic segment accounted for the largest market share in the fumed silica market. The hydrophilic nature of fumed silica is the result of the attached hydroxyl groups on the silica atom at the particle surface, owing to which the product is capable of hydrogen bonding, helping it to disperse in water. Hydrophilic fumed silica helps in increasing the adhesion properties. It also absorbs water off the surface of the particle hence is best suited as an anti-caking agent.

In terms of value & volume, UPR & composites segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment in the fumed silica market.

The UPR & composites segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026. It is witnessing high growth owing to increasing resin applications in various industry verticals, technological advancement, and their growing demand in developing regions. Building & construction, pipes & tanks, and automotive applications use UPR extensively for making fiber reinforced plastics (FRP).

They are also widely used in thermosetting resins with better product performance in comparison to epoxy, vinyl ester, acrylics, amides, and alkyd resins. Various properties associated with UPR include relative ease of manufacturing, cost-effectiveness, ease of processing, and their ability to be readily modified for specific use.


Building & construction dominated the fumed silica market in 2020, in terms of value and volume.

The building & construction end-use industry accounted for the largest share for fumed silica in 2020, in terms of value and volume. Increasing construction activities, coupled with rapid urbanization and industrialization in emerging economies, are leading to the rise in demand for fumed silica in the building & construction industry.
