Sodium Silicate Price Trend for the First Half of 2023
Traders from major countries in Asia saw an upsurge in the demand for sodium silicate in the first quarter of 2023. The Asia Pacific market was on track to regain its momentum after a long stretch of the lunar holiday season and covid. Amid the rising demand, especially from the construction industries, the supply chains remained under pressure in this quarter.
But this demand from downstream industries failed to maintain its consistency in the second quarter, and as a result, the price trend of sodium silicate dipped. In addition to this, the influx of material from the international markets and strong domestic production activities led to a rise in the level of inventories, which further negatively impacted the price trend of sodium silicate.
The price trend of sodium silicate fell consistently in the first and second quarters of 2023 due to the feeble movement of the construction sector. The depreciating market conditions restricted the growth of the sodium silicate market in Europe, and as a result, the traders witnessed a dip in the number of new orders in 2023. The ongoing Russia-Ukraine crises and sliding trade activities further hampered the growth of the sodium silicate market and eventually led to a fall in the prices of sodium silicate.
In North America, the sodium silicate faced southwards throughout the first and second quarters of 2023. With muted demand from the end-user industries, hikes in interest rates, and low availability of labor, the market of sodium silicate struggled. Additionally, the pressure of inflation caused by the failure of two major US banks lowered the purchasing potential of buyers. The delays in production and falling economic activities kept the price trend of sodium silicate in the negative zone.
According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of sodium silicate is estimated to depict negative growth as the end-user industries are experiencing weak momentum.

Sodium silicate is produced by mixing silicon dioxide (SiO2) and sodium oxide (Na2O). This water-soluble, colorless compound has stabilizing, binding, and adhesive qualities. Numerous industrial applications of sodium silicate include employment as a cement additive, a flame retardant in textiles, a component of detergents, and a binder in building materials. When combined with acids, it can produce a solid gel, making it useful in a variety of industrial applications.
