Silica is used as a reinforcing filler and has been replacing conventionally used carbon black in tires. The use of Silica for S-SBR has led to improvements in rolling resistance. Silica for S-SBR has also been responsible for improving fuel efficiency by 5%-7% and reducing carbon emission by ~20%. The sales of Silica for S-SBR is estimated to be valued at US$ 619 Mn by the end of 2018, witnessing a Y-o-Y growth of 7.2% over the period 2018-2028. China is estimated to have accounted for a value share of 22.1% in the global Silica for S-SBR market by 2017 end and is anticipated to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period in the global Silica for S-SBR market. North America also holds significant position, both in terms of production and consumption of Silica for S-SBR.

Injection of silica in the nano-pores of S-SBR causes interpenetration and maximum space/pore filling. This results in tight polymer-filler (silica) interlocking, which eventually leads to lower hysteresis and thus, higher rolling resistance. Silica for S-SBR is used in modern passenger car tires’ threads as reinforcing filler. Silica is also widely used as a performance enhancing filler for tires, industrial goods and as a non-black reinforcing agent for footwear soles, especially athletic shoes.

Increasing stringent regulations regarding tire labelling in countries, such as North America, Europe, China, Japan and South Korea, are anticipated to drive the demand in the Silica for S-SBR market. The use of Silica for S-SBR significantly enhances tire performance. The magic triangle i.e wet grip, abrasion resistance and wear resistance, shows significant improvements with the use of Silica for S-SBR in tires. Silica for S-SBR leads to better grip and braking during winters. Thus, a rise in demand for Silica for S-SBR in winter tires is expected during the forecast period. Tire makers have switched to Silica for S-SBR made tires to cut down rolling resistance by 20% and increase fuel efficiency by 5%. Road transport contributes ~20% share to CO2 emission in the EU and other developed countries.

The footwear segment is also anticipated to witness rise in demand for silica for S-SBR. The use of silica in footwear sole results in highly wear resistant sole that doesn’t leave scrapes on floor.

Major manufacturers have also entered into strategic partnerships with the global tire manufacturers to ensure long term supply of silica for S-SBR application.

Over the past few years, the global manufacturers have also expanded their product offerings for the use of silica for S-SBR for the non-tire thread applications.
