SiO2 (Precipitated Silica) Price Trends for the First Half of 2023


The first quarter enjoyed a rise in the prices of SiO2 (precipitated silica) as the consistent demand and improvement in the number of sales in the pharmaceuticals sector supported the market momentum. In addition to this, the onset of the spring festival and the ongoing rift between Russia and Ukraine also proved to be fruitful for the price trends of SiO2 (precipitated silica).

The second quarter, however, took a negative turn as the prices decreased steeply. The economic indicators suggested that the purchasing activities during this quarter slumped. Along with this, the manufacturing industries also witnessed a contraction that eventually led to a fall in the price trends of SiO2 (precipitated silica).


In the first quarter of 2023, the prices of SiO2 (precipitated silica) inclined steeply as the momentum of the market was fueled by high input costs and rising rates of inflation. The second quarter, however, experienced the downfall of the SiO2 (precipitated silica) prices. The major cause of this fall in the trajectory was the decline in manufacturing activities and lower demand in the consumer sector.

North America

The growing cost of raw materials and strong demand sentiments of the domestic sector helped the price trends of SiO2 (precipitated silica) to rise. The second quarter, on the other hand, failed to maintain the required momentum, and thus, the prices of SiO2 (precipitated silica) declined.

The supply and demand in both domestic and overseas industries took a bearish turn that traded the prices of SiO2 (precipitated silica) towards a downward journey. In addition to this, the global economy also took a hit that slowed down the rise in oil prices and energy costs, which also aided the downfall of the SiO2 (precipitated silica) price trends.
