The global rice husk ash market is projected to reach USD 2.54 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2016 to 2021. The increasing use of rice husk ash in place of silica fume and fly ash in the cement and construction industries, and the high demand of RHA in the Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa regions are some of the key opportunities for the rice husk ash industry.

By application, the building & construction segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the global rice husk ash market during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is anticipated to be driven by the increased construction activities in the Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa regions. The construction industry has a very positive outlook in the Asia-Pacific region supported by the increasing number of construction projects in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and South Korea.

On the basis of silica content, the 85-89% silica content segment dominated the rice husk ash market in 2015. This ash (85-89%), used to generate energy in power plants, is the most common form of rice husk ash obtained after the burning of rice husk at 600 to 700 degree Celsius. However, the 90-94% segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest share of the global rice husk ash market in 2015. This large share has been supported by the region’s strengthening economic conditions, continuous improvement in government budgets, and the positive demographic outlooks, such as increasing population and rising per capita income. Asia-Pacific is witnessing an increase in infrastructure projects, which in turn generates demand for building & construction chemicals, such as RHA.

The RHA market in the Middle East & Africa region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021. Over the past years, owing to its economic development, heavy investments have been made in the region’s infrastructure sector. The construction industry in the Middle East & Africa region is also expected to witness substantial investments in the coming years due to the various infrastructure development projects coming up in varied sectors, such as energy, chemical, and healthcare, among others. These developments are expected to accelerate the demand for RHA in the region in the coming years.

Rice Husk Ash Market

The major factor inhibiting the growth of the rice husk ash market is the complete dependence on production of rice paddy to manufacture rice husk ash. Key players in the rice husk ash market include Guru Metachem Pvt. Ltd. (India), Yihai Kerry Investments Co., Ltd. (China), Usher Agro Ltd. (India), Jasoriya Rice Mill (India), and Rescon (India) Pvt. Ltd., among others.

Usher Eco Power Limited (India), a subsidiary of Usher Agro, is one of the leading players in the RHA market. It has started the development of a new rice husk-based biomass power plant of 18MW capacity in Uttar Pradesh, India. The company is focusing on setting up a silica extraction facility which will use rice husk ash generated from the aforementioned plant. Further, under an agreement, the end product from the facility (i.e. RH silica) will be supplied to the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (U.S.). This development is expected to help strengthen Usher Agro’s foothold in the RHA market.
