“Specialty Silica Market by Product (Precipitated Silica, Silica Gel, Fused Silica, Colloidal Silica, Others), Application, Regions”,and Global Forecast 2019-2025.


Major players in the global specialty silicamarket areAkzoNobel N.V., Evonik Industries SE, Huber Corporation, Imerys SA, Ecolab Incorporated, Tosoh Corporation, WackerChemie AG, Oriental Silicas Corporation, Nissan Chemical Industries Limited, KemiraOyj, Nippon Aerosil Co.
