Global and Chinese Silica Industry Report 2015-2018 – Research and Markets

January 15, 2016 | By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global and Chinese Silica Industry Report, 2015-2018” report to their offering.

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.

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.

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.

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.
