Such factors are expected to boost the overall growth of the silicone adhesives industry.
Higher costs incurred for the manufacturing of the product and the fluctuation in the prices of raw materials are considered as the major market restraints of the silicone adhesives industry.
The inclusion of several toxic and inflammable materials during the processing of the silicone adhesives makes it difficult to comply with the transporting regulations. They are restricted in several countries, due to the risk of explosion. Such factors are considered as the major restraints of the silicone adhesives industry.
The governmental regulations imposed for the manufacturing and emission from these manufacturing industries are also considered as the major challenge for silicone adhesives market growth.
Some of the potential characteristics that have failed to impress the end-user industries, lack of long-term strength, presence of strong radiation, UV light and moisture, and other environmental impacts might alter the strength and stability of the silicone adhesives. This factor is considered as the major challenge for the overall growth of the silicone adhesives industry.
Cumulative growth analysis:
The growing demand in the automotive industry is considered as the major market driver of the silicone adhesives industry. The silicone adhesives are used in various applications in the automotive industry, they are used in structural metal bonding, structural fiber-reinforced plastic bonding, exterior films, and significant others. The wire wheels and engine control modules of the vehicles also require silicone adhesives during the manufacturing processes. The automotive manufacturers are utilizing silicone adhesives as they don’t add on weight yet do not sacrifice efficiency. They are also used due to the factors such as fuel efficiency, customizable and excellent bonding properties.
Especially the adhering properties of the silicone adhesives are useful in the vehicles as it allows the customers to change the color of the vehicle easily. Since the demand for customized vehicles is rapidly increasing in recent years, the properties of silicone adhesives are highly appreciated across the automotive industry, this facilitates the overall growth of the silicone adhesive industry in recent years. The market value of silicone adhesives was at USD 2.8 billion in the year 2019 and it is expected to surpass the market value of over USD 4 billion by the year 2028 while registering a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period.
Value chain analysis:
Adhesives are used to hold the two different substrates, whereas they are also expected to lubricate the substrates, develop bonds and remain stable without causing an adverse reaction or creating any harmful emissions that might interact with the substrates. Therefore silicone adhesives are considered for crucial applications involved in automotive, aerospace, medical appliances, and light-weight construction. Moreover, several applications involved with multi-materials also utilize silicone adhesives for efficient adhesion. The major end-user industries of silicone adhesives are utilizing it due to its capacity to withstand harsh climatic conditions, capable to adhere to different substrates, and efficiency in sealing strong products.
There are a few factors that are considered as the major drivers of silicone adhesives, that is, the silicone adhesive efficiently prevents component failures, reduces repairs of the costly equipment, and the quality of the performance is also higher than other adhesive solutions. Moreover, the government initiatives for the development of medical sectors and the development of manufacturing industries are also aiding the overall growth of the silicone adhesives industry.
