Silicone Market Overview

The Silicone Market has reached USD of 16.7 million in 2021. It is expected to reach the value of 23.4 billion by the year 2026 with a CAGR of 7.0% during the forecast period.

The silicone material has some special features like they have resilience, adhesion, di-electricity, foam control, UV stability, discharge safety, radiation, clarity. In addition to this, there is there are also some extra qualities like they have a long-lasting nature and also has the high strength even to bear the exceed 100-degree heat. As this silicone material is non-toxic it is also used in the food preservation industry.

COVID Analysis

The spread of the pandemic across the world has created drastic changes in all the industries of the market. To avoid the spread of the pandemic many governments have implemented the lockdown which reduced the positive cases and also slowed the spread of the virus. People were advised to follow the social distancing, and also advised staying at their house. So that there won't be the spread of the virus.
