The increasing application of green tires stimulates the accelerated growth of demand for silica

according to the report of rubber world magazine, the world demand for special silica will increase at a rate of 5.6% per year, reaching 2.8 million tons by 2016, which is the prediction of a new study by Freedonia group, an industrial research institution based in Cleveland, USA

special silica includes precipitated silica, fumed silica, silica gel and silica sol. With the increasing use of white carbon black in tire tread, the output of "green tire" is gradually increasing, its consumption in the rubber market is rising, and the restorative development of manufacturing industry undoubtedly constitutes a strong support for the global demand for special silica

this year, both in terms of value and quantity, the special silicon dioxide market will be improved. Freedonia group said that during the year, the market was negatively affected by the global economic recession in 2009, and the demand continued to be sluggish. However, due to many applications in developed countries, "Spencer said, the market is mature, and the growth rate in Western Europe, Japan and the United States will be as limited as that with spring washers

precipitated silica is the dominant special silica product, which will continue to account for more than two-thirds of the global demand until 2021. Especially in North America and the Asia Pacific region, the promotion of "green tires" will drive its growth rate higher than the average level. The tire labeling regulations recently implemented by the European Union, Japan and South Korea will increase the demand for precipitated silica in tires. It is reported that the addition of precipitated silica to the tire tread can reduce rolling resistance, improve fuel economy and increase the grip on wet roads. On the other hand, the growth of the demand for fumed silica will also be driven by the accelerated demand for non tire rubber (especially silicone rubber and industrial applications)

the Asia Pacific region will continue to be the region with the largest demand and the fastest growth. China will promote the growth of demand in this region. As the world's largest consumer of special silica, China will become one of the fastest growing markets in the world in 2016. The growth of the Japanese market will greatly lag behind the average level of the region, but as the country's GDP rebounds from the impact of the tsunami in 2011, its market demand will grow, and the speed of mouse operation of virtual buttons will significantly exceed years. Demand growth in Eastern Europe, Central America and South America will be slightly lower than the global average. Many markets in North America and Western Europe have matured, and their growth rate will be even slower
