Silane is a chemical compound, derived from a family of silicon and other atoms such as carbon, nitrogen and hydrogen. Silane consists of chain of silicon atoms which are bounded covalently to hydrogen atoms. Industrially, silane is produced from the metallurgical grade silicon in two-steps process. In the initial step, powdered silicon is reacted with hydrochloric acid at around 300˚C to produce trichlorosilane along with hydrogen gas. The tricholorosilane is then boiled on a resinous bed containing a catalyst, which produce silane and silicon tetrachloride. Silanes are used in various industrial and medical applications as it greatly improves wetting properties, compression strength, shear strength, and others.

Rapidly increasing paints & coatings industry is the major market driver. Building & construction activity is increasing in developing regions such as Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa, and thus resulting in increasing demand for paints & coatings. Furthermore, growing demand from the automotive industry is expected to increase silane sales, as it is used in plastics on a large scale.

Key Market Driver -

Rising demand from paints & coatings market.

Key Market Restraint -

Increasing raw material prices.

The key market restraint for saline market is the increase in the pricing of raw materials used for the production of silane. The silane price is completely based on the availability of the raw material, and in the case of fossil fuel raw material, its prices tend to change. Also, the price associated with the product is high, hence hindering the market for wax emulsion.
