The global silicon dioxide aerogel market is expected to steadily expand in the foreseeable years because of the rising adoption of new chemical compounds in diverse industries. Fortune Business Insights™ shares this information in its report titled “Silicon Dioxide Aerogel Market, 2021-2028.

Chemicals play a critical role in advancing technologies and industries today are constantly exploring materials and compounds to develop new products with a wide range of applications. Silicon dioxide is one such innovation. It is a white, solid oxide of silicon that can be found in nature and prepared in a laboratory. It can be extensively obtained as fused quartz, fumed silica, aerogel, or regular silica. Aerogel is a synthetic, extremely light, and porous material prepared by replacing liquid gel with gas that feels like delicate expanded polystyrene upon touch. This compound is also utilized in space exploration for collecting space dust, as it is challenging to capture the dust with any other material.

Russia-Ukraine War Implication

The Russia-Ukraine war could change the Silicon Dioxide Aerogel market dynamics of Europe forever. The standoff has revived the predicament situation of the Cold War and pushed Europe to the brink of a major military conflict. The Russian aggression in Ukraine has redefined the global landscape in terms of business. As the global Silicon Dioxide Aerogel market was recuperating from the havoc wreaked by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Russia-Ukraine war has made several industry stakeholders skeptical.

The European Union is pushing for more sanctions against Russia, including halting imports of nuclear fuel from Russia and excluding Russia’s top lenders from the SWIFT banking system. Moreover, Russia has also imposed similar sanctions on most EU countries. The war crisis and sanctions have put a strain on global investment, trade, and economic activity. Therefore, skepticism and uncertainty remain prevalent regarding the conflict, its potential reach, and its longevity. Accordingly, the restoration of normal relations among partners could prove be a sign of improvement.


Based on product type, the market is segmented into micro silicon dioxide aerogel, ultrafine silicon dioxide aerogel, and others. On the basis of application, it is segregated into construction, oil & gas, marine, aerospace, automotive, and others. Geographically, it is divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa.

Highlights of the Report

The report analyzes the leading market segments and the recent trends of the market. It comprehensively discusses the market’s drivers and restraints and the impact of COVID-19 on the market. Additionally, it examines the regional developments and the strategies implemented by the market’s key players.

Drivers and Restraints

Rising Demand from End-User Sectors to Positively Affect Market Growth

There is a rise in the demand for silicon dioxide aerogel in numerous sectors, such as aerospace, oil & gas, chemical, and automotive, due to its insulating properties and excellent thermal conductivity. NASA has been utilizing this compound for niche space applications. For example, NASA has prepared a comet dust collector using aerogel in a tennis racket-shaped collector in the Stardust spacecraft. The dust particles are incredibly lightweight as they are composed of air. Further, the rapid adoption of silicon in imaging devices, light guides, and optical devices is expected to drive market growth.

Physical contact with silica particles can cause respiratory diseases such as lung cancers and other conditions such as silicosis, thereby hampering the market growth.
