Synopsis of Silicones Market


Silicones belong to the family of polymers, which comprises of siloxanes and silanes that are derived from pure silicon. They are produced by the reduction of silicon dioxide (silica) in the form of sand with carbon at high temperatures. Silicones are produced in three steps: synthesis of chlorosilanes, hydrolysis of chlorosilanes, and condensation polymerization. They exhibit excellent properties such as superior weathering and aging resistance, thermo stability, high water repellency, chemical resistance, strong electrical insulation, and super anti-foaming properties, which make them suitable for utilization in numerous end-use applications such as personal care & consumer products, automotive & transportation, building & construction, medical & healthcare, industrial process, and others.


As per our analysis, some of the important market factors and trends identified in the global silicones market include rapid urbanization, technological advancement, and continuous growth of medical & healthcare sector. Moreover, increasing use of silicones in the manufacturing of high-performance OEM along with rising automotive production and sales in emerging economies is predicted to fuel the growth of the market during the assessment period. Implementation of new emission regulation by many developed countries along with shifting automotive manufacturers on the utilization of lightweight material is estimated to drive the growth of the market. Growing commercial, as well as institutional construction activities in the developing countries coupled with the continuous expansion of building & construction industry, is predicted to propel the demand for these polymers. Furthermore, increasing disposable income along with rising use of personal care products such as lotions, cleansers, and conditioners are estimated to drive the market growth over the estimated period. However, fluctuating raw material price along with high energy price is expected to hamper the growth of the market.
