Global Silicone Market: Leading Segments 

APAC emerges as the key region in the global silicone market, constituting for more than 35% of the overall demand in 2018. The surge in this region is due to increasing demand from end use industries such as electronics, medical, and packaging. Annually, more than 60,000 tons of silicones are used to protect against heat, contaminants, and shock in various electronic goods, which include semiconductors, information communications technologies, and LED devices. 

Transportation application is dominating among other diverse applications such as surfactants, conditioning agents, and elastomeric components; it is estimated to grow with a CAGR around 5% during the forecast period 2019-2025. Silicone products are used in the various applications of transportation sector. Globally, automotive, marine, aviation, and aerospace applications mainly uses 117,000 tons of silicone in a year. Silicones are mainly used in the improvement safety features in modern vehicles. They are used in enabling airbags in cars and preserving the cabin pressure in airplanes.

Global Silicone Market Analysis

The manufacturing of renewable energy sources such as solar panels and wind turbines uses 788,000 tons of silicone products in a year. In the manufacturing of solar panels, silicones are used as conductive adhesives and encapsulants. The manufacturers also uses these silicone products in the traditional energy sources such as gas, oil, and electricity. Silicones are used to improve panel efficiency due to their properties such as ozone and UV resistance and superior transparency. Silicones chemical and mechanical properties are used to reduce repair costs and ensures the durability of panels. 

Silicones are polymers with a chemical structure based on chains of alternate silicon and oxygen atoms, with organic groups attached to the silicon atoms. There are various types of silicone substitutes like resin elastomers, rubbers, lubricants, plastic adhesives, and sealants. Due to their properties such as strength, adhesion, and durability, they are widely used in spacecraft, automotive, aviation, and marine vessels applications.

Global Silicone Market: Trends 

  • Recently silicones are using in the applications of sensor technologies. It is mainly used in the rain sensors which are responsible for detecting the rain. These sensors are present on the windshields of the cars that automatically turn on windshield wipers during rain. They are also accounted for controlling the headlamps of the car.   
  • To ensure vehicles performance and safety, silicones are used in advanced electronics such as self-driving cars for their artificial intelligence systems. Silicones will ensure the conductivity for cables, and performance sensors and also provides the insulation to resist the heat, moisture, dust and chemical hazards.
  • The development of silicone epoxy coating with bio repellent ingredient: this ingredient is used for the attachment of antifouling properties for hard structures in sea water conditions of the marine fleet. By satisfying commercial demands and applicable environmental standards epoxy coating vessels are also operating in harsh environments.

Global Silicone Market: Competitive Landscape 

Allergan, Inc., Berkshire Hathaway, Inc., 3M Company, and Gelest Incorp are some of the major players operating in the global silicone market.
