Evaluating the COVID-19 Impact: Demand for Colloidal Silica Slips as Global Manufacturing Activities Come to a Sudden Halt – Future market Insights

Demand for colloidal silica for use in consumer goods, construction, and automotive sectors has been largely curtailed. Steady sales growth projected post the crisis.

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / May 12, 2020 / As the demand for colloidal silica in semiconductor and electronics applications goes down due to current pandemic restrictions on non-essential industries, the global colloidal silica market would witness a moderate CAGR through 2030. On the other hand, the growing prospects of using colloidal silica as a chemical excipient in pharma products will contribute to market growth, partially mitigating losses during the crisis period as projected by a new study of Future Market Insights (FMI). Sustained adoption by construction and electronics industries continue to predominantly drive colloidal silica sales, says the report.

“Colloidal silica is gaining importance as a chemical excipient in the pharma sector for paracetamol and animal medicines. Players target pharmaceutical applications for outsized returns, mitigating some of the losses from other sectors during the COVID-19 pandemic,” says the FMI study.
