Silica Analyzers Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • The user-friendly nature of silica analyzers increases its use, globally - The silica analyzers are user-friendly, easy to install, and configured which increases the use of silica analyzers globally. For instance, up to 40% of marine primary production is produced by diatoms, which need silicic acid to develop and form their opal shell.

    Controlling and measuring silica (Si) concentrations is more important than ever because of the growing industry demands for more efficient energy generation and the rise in operating pressures in modern boilers.
  • Increasing concerns about water quality - Water is a vital component of the natural world and a resource that humans depend on. In addition to drinking it, humans utilize water for cleaning, swimming, showering, and cooking. In a similar vein, water is essential to all of the economic sectors, including manufacturing, transportation, energy, and agriculture.

    As stated by the UN-Water Organization, over 80% of wastewater in the world is released back into the environment untreated or repurposed. Other than that the increasing use of silica analyzers in professional skincare products.
  • Extending industrial uses - The silica analyzers are widely used in different industries such as construction, pharmaceutical, food and beverages, and many more. For instance, under various experimental settings, the removal of iron from silica sand using oxalic acid has been researched to maximize process efficiency and achieve a high level of iron removal at a low cost of operation.

    Since it has been discovered that silica in plants can reduce a variety of abiotic and biotic challenges, silicates are frequently added to fertilizers.


  • Health problems related to silica - Lung illness can result from breathing in dust from materials containing crystalline silica. Particles of silica dust get lodged in lung tissue, resulting in scarring and inflammation. Additionally, the particles lessen the capacity of the lungs to absorb oxygen.
  • The increasing limitation in GHG release - The rising restrictions to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions can further impede the silica analyzers market gains. To illustrate, for carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil fuel-fired power plants, the EPA is recommending Clean Air Act emission limits and guidelines based on practical and affordable control methods.

Silica Analyzers Segmentation

Type (Equipment, Consumables)

Equipment segment is poised to dominate around 75% silica analyzers market share by the end of 2036. The equipment of silica analyzers are used in different industrial sectors and they are determined through different measures.

Determining the precise elemental composition of advanced materials and identifying potential impurities are consequently essential components of the silica analyzers' characterization. Both the end product's qualities and production processes can be optimized with the use of this knowledge. ICP-OES or ICP-MS are flexible instruments that can be used to frequently get such information since they enable sensitive multi-element analysis in a range of matrices (e.g., high-purity materials, semiconductors, electronic materials, metals, alloys, ceramics, and polymers).

Industry (Semiconductor, Power Generation)

By the end of 2036, power generation segment is estimated to account for more than 70% silica analyzers market share.

Moreover, the database of the World Resource Institute contains thermal (coal, gas, oil, nuclear, biomass, waste, and geothermal) and renewable (hydro, wind, and solar) power plants, totaling over 35,000 units across 167 nations. Silica can create severe issues in power plants such as material harm, and decrease effectiveness. Silica analyzers are implemented in power plants to supervise and manage the silica level in boiled feedwater, steam, and cold water. For instance, in power plants, silicate and phosphate are measured in boiler water; 60–120 samples can be evaluated every hour.

Silica Analyzers Industry - Regional Synopsis

APAC Market Statistics

Asia Pacific region in silica analyzers market is poised to dominate around 40% revenue share by the end of 2036. This advancement will be credited to the existence of a huge number of coal-fired power plants in the APAC region. In line with the International Energy Agency (IEA), to promote decarbonization initiatives, including a just transition away from coal power, two new Just Energy Transition Partnerships (JETP) were announced in 2022 in Indonesia (with a budget of USD 20 billion) and Viet Nam (USD 15.5 billion).

The rising refurbishment of coal plants and increasing coal power generation in China will propel the expansion of the silica analyzers industry. In 2021, China's installed coal-based power generation capacity amounted to 1080 GW, which represents about 50% of the country's total installed power station capacity.

The rising government support in Korea to increase the manufacturing industry will be the primary reason behind the silica analyzers market expansion in this region. To support the semiconductor sector, the Korean government plans to increase tax incentives by up to 25 percent, from the current 16 percent.

The rising construction industry in Japan will exponentially expand the industry growth of silica analyzers. In fact, even though Japan has around 475 thousand licensed construction businesses, the country's construction industry is dominated by Super Zenecon, a group of five large general contractors.

North American Market Analysis
