Notch Updates Silica Report

Filed under: General, Silica — Notch @ 9:25 pm

Notch Consulting has published the second issue of the Silica Market Update, a bi-annual report covering conditions in the global precipitated silica market. The PDF report is 22 pages with eight tables. The report also includes a separate Excel spreadsheet with 22 tables covering demand by region/country and capacity by company.

Figures include quarterly demand estimates for 2008 and 2009, as well as full year demand for all years going back to 2000 and forecasts for 2010, 2011, 2015, and 2025. Volume demand is provided in tonnes at the global, regional, and national levels.

Market segments covered in the report include tires (including a breakdown of conventional versus ‘green tire’ applications), non-tire rubber (MRG, silicones and footwear), dentifrice, nutrition/health (food, ag, pharma, and cosmetics), and industrial (paper, plastics, paints/coatings, other applications). Average pricing is provided for various grades of precipitated silica for the United States, the European Union and China. The report also provides an overview of recent and proposed capacity expansion projects, as well as global precipitated silica capacity by company and plant. Finally, the most recent issue also includes a discussion of recent tire rolling resistance legislation worldwide and its likely effect on long-term precipitated silica demand.
