Silica Flour Market Size Worth USD 861.9 Million in 2032 | Emergen Research

Rising demand from the construction industry is one of the major factors driving silica flour market revenue growth

Vancouver, Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global silica flour market size was USD 583.0 Million in 2022 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 3.9% during the forecast period, according to latest analysis by Emergen Research. Increasing use of silica flour in the oil and gas industry is a major factor driving the market revenue growth. Fine silica grades play a crucial role in the cementing of oil wells. Fine silica grades play a crucial role in the cementing of oil wells. The introduction of silica into the cement mixture modifies silica-to-calcium ratio, enhancing the cement’s stability while preserving its permeability and physical strength, even when subjected to high temperatures of up to 110°C.

Grounded silica is particularly utilized for grading G and H well cement, and it is also used to adjust slurry density, replacing materials such as ilmenite, barite, or coal powder. In fact, roughly one-third of the cement used in these operations consists of silica flour. In recent years, the demand for oil and gas products has risen due to increasing energy and fuel requirements which is driving revenue growth of the market.

However, health concerns pertaining to the exposure to respirable silica dust is expected to restrain revenue growth of the market. While silica is a common component in various products including paints, coatings, adhesives, glass, and rubber tires, prolonged exposure to these products carries significant risks. Approximately 2.5 million workers worldwide face exposure to silica flour and other silica forms.

The processing of siliceous rocks generates inhalable dust, which, when breathed in, poses severe health dangers. Inhaling and retaining fine silica particles can lead to a condition known as silicosis, an incurable lung disease that can result in permanent disability or even death. Individuals with silicosis are also at an increased risk of developing pulmonary tuberculosis.

Some Key Highlights from the Report

  • The glass manufacturing segment accounted for largest revenue share in 2022. Silica flour powder plays a crucial role in the manufacturing of ceramics and glass. It functions as a flux, reducing the materials’ melting point and ensuring even heating. Moreover, it improves the transparency and durability of glass items. In ceramics production, it effectively manages shrinkage during the firing process and enhances the overall strength and longevity of the end products. These are some of the major factors driving revenue growth of this segment.
  • The natural silica flour segment accounted for largest revenue share in 2022. Naturally occurring silica flour usually boasts a significant degree of purity, rendering it well-suited for sectors demanding pristine materials. This quality is of paramount importance in sectors such as glass production and creation of top-tier ceramics. Moreover, natural silica flour exhibits chemical inertness, indicating that it does not interact with the majority of chemicals or substances. This attribute holds immense value in industries where the material must not introduce undesirable reactions or contaminants into the end product.
