Market Synopsis


The global silicone additives market in terms of value is expected to surpass USD 1.9 billion by 2025, growing with the CAGR of over 7.0% during the forecast period. Silicone additives help to reduce the surface tension of the liquid coating; it is widely used in paints and coating products. It cures surface defects such as poor wetting and cratering, in addition, improve the surface scratch resistance properties. Silicone additives find application in paper and pulp, personal care, food & beverage, and construction. In July 2019, Wacker Chemie AG has launched new silicone additive for thermoplastic polyurethanes which is to be sold by the name of Genioplast Pellet 345, this additive help to lower the hardness of the thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) and boost elasticity.


Rising demand for paints and coatings in the automotive industry is expected to drive the global silicone additives market growth. The silicone-based surface additive is used to produce solvent-borne coating systems for automotive application. These coatings have good leveling with defoaming properties. Increased automotive production in emerging economies, such as China, India, and Mexico is favoring paints & coatings market. The original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are focusing on adopting technologies that are fuel-efficient, safe, and smart, which has led to producing lower volatile organic compound (VOC) silicone additive based coatings products. Automobile production across the globe surpassed 100 million units in 2018; it grew by around 4% per year from 2015 to 2017. In 2017, China emerged as a global leader in automotive production and manufactured approximately 29 million vehicles with an excellent growth rate of 4.5%. China is followed by the US, India, France, Japan, and Spain, where some of the dynamic automotive manufacturers prevail. India and Mexico automotive production were around 4.7 million vehicles and 4.0 million vehicles, respectively. Favorable government policies in emerging economies such as in India, the government allocates 100% FDI in the automotive sector along with increasing awareness regarding the benefits of silicone additive based paint & coatings are likely to drive the market growth. Moreover, the trend of sharing cars and light vehicles for shorter lifecycles is becoming more common, which is expected to increase automotive production in the near future. Thus, rising sales of smart and safe vehicles coupled with the shift towards electric vehicles owing to stringent environmental regulations, are likely to boost the demand for paint & coatings, thus silicone additive.
