Sodium Silicate Market: Global Trends, Analysis and Forecast 2027

The Global Sodium Silicate Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 11.9 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 2.9%.

Sodium silicate is a colourless salt of sodium and silica. It is soluble in water and is prepared by reacting silica sand and sodium carbonate at a high temperature (1200 to 1400OC). Sodium silicate is widely used to manufacture soaps & detergents and silica gel. It is also used as cement, binder, filler, adhesives, wall coating, concrete, fireproofing material, and as a sealant in numerous applications. Moreover, sodium silicate plays a vital role in the food industry by preserving dry food products from clumping and it absorbs excess moisture from the food.

Sodium Silicate MARKET: Drivers & CHALLENGES

Market Driver:

Increasing Demand from Various End-User Industries

Sodium silicate is also known as water glass or soluble glass. Sodium silicate is extensively used in the manufacturing of detergents. Many detergent operations are performed using liquid as well as the granular form of sodium silicate. It is a viscous compound containing sodium oxide and silica. The liquid form of sodium silicate, with the weight ratio of 2.8 to 3.3 range is widely used as an adhesive in various manufacturing applications. It sets quickly and firmly holds the flaps together, hence is used to bind items such as paper cores for paper towels and toilet tissue, corrugated board, fiber drums, paperboard laminates, and angle board. Mostly paper and pulp manufacturers prefer sodium silicate due to its low cost, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly characteristics.

There are a number of advantages associated with the sodium silicate as binders in the cement mixtures. Sodium silicate is used in various ratios for making different types of cement, including types for acid-proof construction, refractory uses, and binding thermal insulating materials. Sodium silicate-based cement is widely used for lining and laying refractory units, laying brick in sulfite digesters for chemical wood pulps, preparing foundry molds and cores, and construction of acid-proof masonry.

Moreover, sodium silicate is used for de-inking, sizing, coating, and bleaching of recycled paper products in the paper and pulp industry. In the paper and pulp industry, sodium silicate is mainly used to brighten soft and hardwood pulps. Furthermore, in the waste paper or paper recycling industry, sodium silicates aids in re-pulping and de-inking operations. Thus, increasing awareness about the saving trees and recycling paper are expected to fuel the growth of the global sodium silicate market.

Market Restraint:

Availability of Substitutes

There is a number of chemicals used as substitutes for sodium silicate in various end-use industries, which is likely to hinder the global sodium sulfate market. For instance, soda ash is a widely used chemical to increase pH. An advantage of sodium sulfate is a relatively weak base, that using a little too much will not change the pH. Thus, it is usually used by presoaking the fabric. Another, substitute for sodium sulfate is trisodium phosphate (TSP). TSP is a more basic powder, produced by sodium carbonate. TSP set easily on cotton or silk with soda ash. TSP can be used as a cleaner if mixed with water. Sodium hydroxide is another substitute for sodium silicate that can be used in the textile industry. Thus, the availability of substitutes may hinder the growth of the market.
