The global demand for Silicones Market is presumed to reach the valuation of nearly USD XXX MN by 2026 from USD XXX MN in 2019 with a CAGR of X.XX% under the study period of 2020 - 2026.
Silicones are synthetic polymers made up of siloxane. It has a silicon-oxygen backbone with organic groups attached to the silicon atoms by C-Si bonds. Silicones have unique properties amongst polymers due to the immediate existence of organic groups attached to a chain of inorganic atoms. The unique chemical structure of the silicone allows them to be produced in various forms such as silicone gels, silicone fluids, silicone elastomers (rubbers) and silicone resins. They are used in numerous industries, including electronics, construction, paints, automobiles, food, and healthcare.
The superior chemical properties of silicone and high consumption of silicone in industrial processes are important factors driving the growth of the silicone market globally. Moreover, growing infrastructure in the emerging nations is surging the overall global demand for construction chemicals, which, in turn, is anticipated to propel the demand for silicone over the forecast period. The growing demand for lightweight materials in the automotive sector and ever-increasing R&D initiatives for product advancement is adding fuel to the growth of the silicone market. The growing development of antimicrobial silicone elastomers is creating a huge potential of silicone in the healthcare industry. In addition to that growing awareness and use of liquid silicone rubber in the manufacturing sector is expected to act as a lucrative opportunity for the silicone market over the forecast period.
