Global nano silica market trend 2023-2030 What is Nano Silica? by Newsjumbleaid

Recently, covid 19 outbreak spreads in Shanghai, China. There are more than 25,000 new asymptomatic domestic infections every day. China is implementing a dynamic zero-out policy. A leading respiratory expert said the key to COVID-19 prevention and control is to minimize transmission and fatality rate. Omicron has a low case fatality rate but is highly transmissible and can still claim many lives in large outbreaks. "Total openness is not applicable in China.  For China, we should keep to the dynamic zero-out and gradually open up."  

However, "dynamic zero clearance" is not the pursuit of complete "zero infection".  As the Novel Coronavirus has its own uniqueness and strong concealment, there may be no way to prevent the detection of cases at present, but rapid detection and prompt treatment must be carried out, as soon as one case is found, one case will be dealt with.  

The situation in Shanghai is serious. As the financial center of China, Shanghai is a very important city, and the outbreak of the epidemic in Shanghai will put a great impact on China's economy.  The current task is to contain the spread of the epidemic as soon as possible, to achieve social zero so that Shanghai's life and economy quickly return to normal.  

As China plays an important role in the global supply chain, the outbreak will have a significant impact on the supply and prices of many nano silica.

What is Nano Silica?
Silicon Dioxide nanoparticles, also known as silica nanoparticles or nano-silica, appear in the form of white powder.
Nanometer silica particles can be divided into P-type and S-type according to their structure. P-type particles are characterized by a large number of nanopores, with a porosity of 0.61 mL /g, and higher UV reflectivity than S-type particles. The latter also has a relatively small surface area. 
Nano silica has the characteristics of light volume, fluffy, bulk density of less than 0.15-0.2g/cm3, a specific surface area of more than 500 m2/g, and high chemical activity. 
Because the surface contains an OH- bond, nano silica is a kind of acid oxide, belonging to the silicate acid group, has hydrophilic, and the water absorption rate is more than 5 times its own.   
The main application of silica nanoparticles is as additives in rubber and plastic manufacturing; As a reinforced filler for concrete and other building composites; As a stable, non-toxic platform for biomedical applications such as drug delivery and therapeutic diagnostics.
 
What is Silica?
Silicon, or silicon, is one of the chemical elements found in the earth's crust. Its oxide forms are silicate (SiO4) and silicon dioxide (silica, SiO2). 
Silicon is commonly used in industry, while its oxide form is commonly used in biomedical applications. SiNPs have several rare properties, such as ease of synthesis, surface modification, strong mechanical properties, and relatively inert chemical composition.  They have been used as biological materials for decades. 
Silica comes in two basic forms: crystalline and amorphous. The two forms have the same molecular formula, but their structural arrangements are different. Crystalline silica has a regular lattice arrangement, while amorphous silica has an irregular lattice arrangement.  Crystalline silica comes in many forms. A well-known form is alpha-quartz, which can be converted by heating to β -quartz, squamous quartz, and quartzite. There is also porous crystalline silica called a porosil. All porosils are synthetic products. 
Mesoporous silicon and silica particles are ideal candidates for controlled drug release because of their rare properties, such as high surface area, large pore volume, adjustable pore size, and good chemical and thermal stability. Amorphous silica can be divided into three categories: natural forms, byproducts of power stations and metallurgical processes, and synthetic forms. Amorphous silica is considered to be a very promising gene carrier and molecular imaging candidate, mainly because of its highly tunable biocompatibility and stability. It is also used in dietary supplements, catheters, implants, and dental fillers.
 
What is nano-silica used for? 
Nano silica is used to modify the dispersion and plasticity of cement concrete, thus giving it impermeability, enhanced impermeability, frost resistance, reducing hydration heat, and prolonging service life. 
Used as strengthening agent, vitrification agent, and adhesive of ceramics, enamels, and glazes. It is also a high thermal binder for engineering-grade ceramics and refractories. 
Nanocomposite material modifier, used as an inorganic adhesive at high temperature; As an additive for inorganic composite materials, used for strengthening, molding, and filling of rubber/polymer materials. In addition, can be used as a variety of resin engineering materials; High-quality FRP corrosion-resistant packing. 
Used as cement seal of oil well, underwater seal, and reinforcement material of under-ground engineering; It has the following characteristics: engineering shielding, anti-radiation, stealth, electricity, anti-bacteria; It is good for chemical absorption, catalysis, and enhancement.
Special use, such as lamp paint, lubricating oil, thickener, steel dehydrogenate, and inner wall paint sensitive materials. Energy storage filler for solar cells and power cells. 
 
Is nano-silica toxic? 
The health effects associated with silica exposure, particularly crystalline silica, have been extensively studied. 
Studies have shown that occupational exposure to crystalline silica induces silicosis, a fibrotic lung disease, in workers, and that exposure is associated with other lung diseases, such as lung cancer, emphysema, and tuberculosis. 
Amorphous silica has previously been considered less harmful than crystalline silica.  However, recent studies have shown that amorphous SNP has potential toxicity similar to that of crystalline particles. In addition to crystallinity, the physicochemical properties of SiNPs produce different toxicity in vitro and in vivo studies. Safety and potential adverse effects should be considered, especially those affecting the immune system.

Recently, the first press conference of the Boao Forum For Asia Annual Conference 2022 was held. Two flagship reports were released at the conference: "Asia's Economic Prospects and Integration Process 2022" and "Sustainable Asia and the World 2022-Green Transformation in Action in Asia".

The flagship report points out that the global economy will recover in 2021, and the pace of economic integration in the Asia-Pacific has not stopped even in the face of the impact of COVID-19. The Asia-Pacific region has provided new impetus for the world's economic recovery and institutional building.  

The report gives an outlook on the Asian economy, noting that a number of factors will affect Asian economic growth. For example, mutated strains such as Delta and Omicron have become more transmissible, and many economies are experiencing epidemic peaks again. The Ukraine crisis has triggered geopolitical changes in Asia and Europe, leading to higher commodity prices, which may affect the global energy supply and energy transformation.

The report pointed out that the Asian economy will still be in the process of recovery in 2022, but the growth rate may moderate. According to the report, Asia's economic growth in 2022 is likely to be lower than the current IMF forecast, which is projected at 4.8%.

Affected by several factors, the supply of the nano silica is erratic and thus its prices are expected to go higher in the future.
