Silicone Adhesives and Sealants Market Segment Analysis – By Product

One component segment is projected to witness the highest share in the silicon adhesive and sealants market during the forecast period. One component silicone adhesive requires a humidity of 5% to 95% and temperature 40 0F to 100 0F (5°C and 40°C) to cure the adhesive and sealants. For rapid curing of an adhesive film, it requires a high thickness of film. One component silicone adhesive is used extensively in aircraft and aerospace applications. Furthermore, due to its high flexibility and strong adhesion to a wide range of substrates such as metals, rubbers, and others, it is widely used in transport industries. Hence, the rise in demand for one component is a major growth component of the silicone adhesive and sealants market. 

Silicone Adhesives and Sealants Market Segment Analysis – By Technology

Pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) technology dominated the silicone adhesives and sealants market in 2020. With this technology silicon, adhesive and sealants are used to assemble electronic devices, to labeling food packaging, and mountings graphics displays. PSA technology does not require solvent, water, or heat to activate the adhesive. The bond is directly influenced by the amount of pressure that is used to apply the adhesive on the surface. Silicone adhesives are relatively expensive and have a very low initial tack, but can withstand higher temperatures than organic adhesives like synthetic rubber and acrylic adhesive. The use of pressure-sensitive adhesive technology in high-performance applications has been increasing due to advances in organic adhesives and also this technology is suitable for skin contact and transdermal drug delivery. Hence, the demand for PSA technology increases from the medical sector, in turn, which is estimated to grow the market size.

Silicone Adhesives and Sealants Market Segment Analysis – By End-Use Industry

Building and construction sector held the largest share in the silicone adhesives and sealants market in 2020 and is growing at a CAGR of 5.3% during this forecast period, due to their excellent chemical and physical properties as compared with other organic adhesives or sealants. Silicone sealants and adhesives bond diverse materials such as concrete, glass, granite, steel, and plastics stay affixed and absorb stress and movement from wind or earthquakes. Sealants are also protecting joints and materials from moisture, heat, corrosion, sunlight, ultraviolet radiation, pollution, and other chemicals. Hence, increasing real sector investment is supports silicon adhesives and sealants. According to the National Bureau of Statistics real estate investment in August 2020 rose 11.8% in China. Additionally, increasing advancement in polymer technology for production speed is expected to emerge significant growth of the market.

Silicone Adhesives and Sealants Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

The Asia Pacific dominated the silicone adhesives and sealants market in 2020 with a share of more than 45%. China and India are expected to witness high demand for adhesives and sealants during the forecast period, with the growing need for consumer products, personal protective equipment from the healthcare industry, and packaging products in the FMCG. According to the Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector accounts for 50% of FMCG products sales in India thus, the FMCG market grew at 9% - 10% in 2020. Furthermore, the healthcare market in India is expected to reach US$ 372 billion by 2022.

Silicone Adhesives and Sealants Market Drivers

Increasing Consumption of Silicone Adhesives and Sealants

Silicone adhesives and sealants are often used for automobiles, home appliances, and sensors in electronic devices. These are waterproof and UV-resistant adhesive that withstands temperatures from -65°F to 300°F. With this property, it is a perfect adhesive and sealant for repairs in hot areas such as plumbing, engines, or HVAC systems, as well as some industrial purposes, such as sealing various gaskets and ductwork. For construction projects such as sealing gaps or cracks around windows, door frames, baseboards, walls, and molding, an adhesive that combines acrylic and silicone is a better option. Therefore, Henkel invested INR 400 crore (US$ 5.68 billion) in 2019 for its new production facility nearby Pune, which  is increasing the consumption of high-performance solutions in adhesives and sealants. 

Increasing Demand from End-Use Industry

Silicon adhesive and sealants help to reduce the weight of vehicles and enhance fuel efficiency which is creating growth in the aerospace sector.
