In 2018, the global silicon dioxide market was valued at USD xx million and expected to project a value of USD xx million in 2025, accounting a CAGR of x.x% during the forecast period.
Silicon Dioxide is abundantly found in the earth’s crust and is formed as a result of the reaction between silica and oxygen. It is also known as silica. Silicon dioxide is found naturally and can be made synthetically also. Because of its ubiquitous nature, the Silicon dioxide is found in various forms as crystalline, amorphous, etc. The most popular crystal form is the quartz, mainly found in Graphite and is a main component of sandstone. There are various industrial applications of the silicon dioxide and the most common use is amorphous silica nanoparticles which predominantly used across different industries due to its peculiar physicochemical properties. It is also used as a primary oxide material in the formation of glass and ceramics.
The Occurrence and functionality of the silicon dioxide is abundant and thus this is itself a major driver of it. There are various applications of the silicon dioxide in many industries. Like in food industry, the most widespread use of silicon dioxide is that of anti-caking agent, due its property to absorb excess moisture and thereby, prevents the sticking of the ingredients together. The major use is in manufacturing of spices, salt and chili powder as it prevents its clumping. Also, owing to the same attributes, silica is also widely used in the Health supplements as it prevents the clumping of the ingredients without interfering with other active ingredients. It can also be used as anti-foaming agent which is used production of beer and wine to remove yeast and protein form it. Owing to other properties as removal of unwanted impurities, protection against diffusion of dopants and high temperature stability, the silicon dioxide used in the manufacturing of the formation of semiconductor, circuit boards, piezoelectric and refractory material among others.
Though, there are certain occupational hazards of the Silicon dioxide too. If exposed directly to the silicon dioxide one may suffer from silicosis, which is a lung disease which is caused due to excessive inhalation of crystalline silica particles over a longer period of time. Thus the Glass manufacture and Mining sector are majorly affected as there is more direct exposure to the silicon dioxide.
