Sio2(Precipitated Silica) Price Trend

The price of silica raw materials is expected to continue to rise in early 2022, and the middle and downstream enterprises will be unable to withstand the pressure. A large downstream listed company recently stated that it is finding it difficult to bear the cost pressures of rising raw materials and will implement price increases beginning March 1. Raw material prices have risen sharply since the last price adjustment in July 2021, logistics are constrained, and energy costs remain high.
