High purity silica is a high-quality amorphous form of silicon dioxide that is extremely pure, chemically non-reactive and compact in nature. It has a wide range of industrial applications owing to its excellent optical, mechanical and insulating properties. High purity silica is used as a raw material in the production of optic fibers, quartz glass products, and semiconductors as it has high transparency in the deep ultraviolet region.
The global High Purity Silica Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 8.64 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
