Silica Industry: Global Market Size, Share, Growth and Forecast to 2018 (Solvay S.A., PPG Industries, Cabot Corporation, Wacker Chemie AG)

Press release   •   May 11, 2016 03:28 EDT

China's silica (white carbon black) industry after rapid expansion over the preceding years has seen overcapacity and intensified competition among enterprises, combined with depressed demand from downstream sectors such as tire and shoemaking, China's silica capacity and output growth has been slow since 2013, with an around 50% capacity utilization of the industry. In 2015, the capacity and output rose 2.80% and 1.46% year on year to about 2,243 kilotons and 1,184 kilotons, respectively.

Under the general trend of green tire development, the highly dispersible silica market in China has huge potential for development. Currently, Jiangxi Blackcat Carbon Black Inc.,Ltd that is primarily focused on carbon black plans an 80 kt/a highly dispersible silica project in Jining, Shandong province, and Yuan Xiang Chemical Co., Ltd. plans to build a 100 kt/a green tire-dedicated highly dispersible silica production line in the next two to three years.

Against a slight downturn of the whole industry, Chinese silica enterprises are actively seeking breakthroughs by multiple means. Some companies are speeding up the R&D of high-performance silica technologies and launching projects; some competent players are beginning to get consciously involved in capital market and seeking a listing on the "New Three Board" (an over-the-counter market for growth enterprises); and a few ones are embracing business transformation.

Major companies covered in this report are Solvay S.A., Evonik Industries AG, PPG Industries, Cabot Corporation, Wacker Chemie AG, Tokuyama, Tong Hua Shuang Long Chemical Industry Co., Ltd., Do-fluoride Chemicals Co., Ltd., Shandong Haihua Company Limited, Longxing Chemical Stock Co., Ltd., Shanxi Tond Chemical Co., Ltd., Shandong Link Silica Co., Ltd., Zhuzhou Xinglong New Material Co., Ltd, Fujian Zhengsheng Inorganic Material Co.,Ltd, Sanming Fengrun Chemical Co., Ltd., Fujian Shaxian Jinsha Silica Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Fujian Sanming Zhengyuan Chemical Co., Ltd., Yuan Xiang Chemical Co., Ltd., Guangzhou GBS High-tech & Industry Co., Ltd., Zhejiang Fushite Group, Chifeng Shengsen Silicon Technology Development Co., Ltd., Jining Qingyun Chemical Co., Ltd., Yichang CSG Polysilicon Co., Ltd., China Silicon Corporation Ltd. and Jiangxi Blackcat Carbon Black Inc.,Ltd etc

Moreover, foreign companies are also bullish on green tire's huge demand for silica. Solvay started its 80 kt/a highly dispersible silica project in Gunsan, S. Korea in April 2015, followed by an 85 kt/a highly dispersible silica project located in Poland in July, thus expanding the company's capacity to 465 kilotons. And Evonik Industries AG's highly dispersible silica project in Americana, Brazil is under construction, too.

There have been two major enterprises seeking a listing on the "New Three Board" since 2015, namely Wuxi Quechen Silicon Chemical Co., Ltd. and Yuan Xiang Chemical Co., Ltd. The former as the largest silica producer in China boasts a 250 kt/a capacity and was listed on the "New Three Board" in October 2015. The latter mainly produces silica used in silicone rubber, but also engages in the research and development of high performance silica in the fields of delustering agent and green tire; with a 20 kt/a capacity, it formally applied for "New Three Board" listing in December 2015. In addition, Tong Hua Shuang Long Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. as the first listed company with silica as its core business purchased Jilin Jinbao Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. in October 2014 and then pharmaceutical business replaced silica to become the main engine for the company's performance.

The report mainly highlights the followings:

  • Global silica market structure, supply and demand conditions.
