Region :Global | Report ID: FBI102926 | Status : Ongoing



The global silicone market will derive growth from the increasing applications of the product across the world. Silicone is a high performance polymer that comprises of siloxanes. It is prepared by hydrolysis of dimethyldichlorosilane. Silicone exhibits various properties like low chemical reactivity, low toxicity, low thermal conductivity, and thermal stability. It can be formulated to be electrically conductive or insulative thus making it suitable for electrical applications. It is water repellent in nature and resistant to oxygen, ozone, and UV rays leading it to wide usage in construction and automotive industries. It is highly antimicrobial and biocompatible.

In the rapidly growing automotive business, silicone is applied as lubricant for brake components and in insulation of spark plug wires to prevent sparks and misfires. Silicone sheets are used to make gaskets of automotive engines and silicone rubber as air bag sealant.  Automotive silicones help reduce the overall vehicular weight thereby reducing harmful emissions and enhancing the fuel efficiency. Increasing automobiles production along with stringent environmental regulations for harmful emissions may drive the overall automotive silicones market demand.

However, high production cost due to high processing and raw material costs may hinder the overall silicone industry growth.
