Report Code: CMR 57819 Report Format: PDF + Excel

Silicone in Construction Industry Market Overview

Silicone in Construction Industry Market is expected to be valued at $9.2 billion by the end of the year 2026 after growing at a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period from 2021-2026. The increasing government initiatives and investments in the construction sector are vastly driving the silicone in the construction industry. For an instance, the government of India reserved a fund of US$ 14.5 billion for infrastructural and construction activities. The increase in repair and maintenance activities of old buildings and infrastructure is also driving the demand for silicone in the construction industry. Silicone is also used as polysiloxanes, (a type of polymer belonging to fluoropolymers made of siloxane), in sealants, adhesives, lubricants and for thermal and electrical insulation in construction industry. Fluorinated silicones are used for insulations in the construction industry.

Covid-19 Impact

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the silicone in the construction Industry has been affected in terms of distribution and logistics. The economic slowdown caused the standstill of the production of silicone and distribution of the stock. The pandemic has also caused disruptions in the construction industry, which has further led to the slowdown of silicone consumption in the construction sector. The various economical and legal restrictions across the globe owing to the global pandemic covid-19 slowed down the inter-country activities, import and export of silicones. This lead to the silicone in construction industry market to incur huge losses. The situation is however estimated to improve by the end of the year 2021.

Silicone in Construction Industry Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Sealants segment held the significant share in the silicone in construction industry in the year 2020 and is estimated to grow with a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast timeframe. Higher elongation and lower strength characteristics make it ideal for sealing joints and assemblies, thereby increasing the demand for silicone sealants in the construction industry. Polysiloxanes, a type of silicone fluoropolymer is used for adhesives, sealants, lubricants and insulation in the construction industry. These sealants can be used on diverse materials such as concrete, glass, granite, steel and plastics. These sealants also have excellent hold against extreme conditions. The sealants segment is expected to grow post covid-19 owing to the increase in the construction industry activities.

Silicone in Construction Industry Market Segment Analysis – By Functional Area

Sealing segment held the significant share in the silicone in construction industry in the year 2020 and is growing at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period. The maintenance and repair activities have increased in the construction industry which has increased the demand for sealing works. The construction sector has been on the rise in the present days and it has led to high demand for silicone and related products. Amid the coronavirus pandemic and economic stagnation, the innovation and product development in the silicone sealant market will determine the competition and opportunities in the future for silicone In Construction Industry market. 

Silicone in Construction Industry Market Segment Analysis – By Industrial Verticals

Residential construction segment held the largest share in the silicone market in the construction industry in the year 2020. The increase in repair and maintenance activities in the residential construction has given rise to the need for silicone in construction industry. Silicone is used in paint and coatings which helps in repelling bacterial accumulation. Silicone paint, sealants and adhesives helps in bringing uniformity and increasing the breathability. This has led to high adoption of silicone in the construction industry, especially residential construction.

Silicone in Construction Industry Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

Asia-Pacific region held the largest share of more than 40% in the silicone in construction industry in the year 2020. This growth of silicone in the construction industry in the APAC region can be attributed by the rising construction activities in countries like China, India and South Korea. For instance, in the Union Budget of 2020-2021 made by the Indian government, the government allocated US $6.85 billion (Rs. 50,040 crore) to Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs. Maintenance and repair activities have increased in the construction industry in these regions owing to the increase in government maintenance activities and initiatives, which has also contributed significantly to the growth of silicone sealants in the construction industry in the region.

Silicone in Construction Industry Market Drivers

Increase in construction activities and government initiatives

The increase in activities related to construction such as maintenance and repair in the recent years, owing to many factors such as government rules and developments clubbed with the increase in government initiatives in increasing the infrastructural activities and restoring existing buildings and facilities has given rise to the use of silicone in the construction industry. For instance, the construction activities in India have grown 12% in the year 2020 more than the previous two years. The government of India has sanctioned projects for Rs.750 billion. This is highly driving the use of silicone and related products in the construction industry thereby driving the growth of silicone market in the construction industry.

Increased use of silicone in sealants and coatings and Excellent properties of silicone products

In the recent days, there is an increase in the use of silicone in products such as sealants and coatings which is driving the silicone market. Silicone in sealants is used to remove the failed sealants and coatings without any trace and enhance the overall look of the building. Silicone helps in revitalizing the overall appearance of the building and gives a rich and improved look. The properties of silicone products in itself is the biggest driving factor of the silicone market in the construction industry. Unique properties such as high resistance to weather, temperature, heat and moisture are making it a preferred product as compared to its substitutes. Silicone products also possess properties like weather stability, oxidation and ozone resistance which gives more advantages than its substitutes.

Silicone in Construction Industry Market Challenges

Fluctuating silicone prices

The volatile and fluctuating prices of silicone in the market is one of the main factors hampering the growth of the silicone market. The price of silicone spiked from 20-25% in the year 2017, and spiked up to 45% in 2020. Therefore, there is no price consistency which is a big challenge to the silicone in construction industry. The production and demand gap are affecting the prices of silicone, which is touching high ceilings at times making it expensive for small-sized and medium sized businesses.

Regulatory guidelines

There are certain regulatory guidelines which is hampering the growth of the silicone market in the construction industry. The production of silicone could result in various hazards, including air pollution, water pollution and toxic releases, which is why there are strict regulations regarding production of silicone, which is acting as one of the biggest challenge to the silicone in construction industry. Wrong usage of silicone in products could prove hazardous and invite lawful actions which could prove futile to the business. For instance, regulatory agencies such as Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) set strict rules to reduce Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) emissions from the production of products like silicone by 90,000 tons per year. Therefore, certain manufacturers could refrain themselves from using silicone in their products.

Market Landscape

Innovation, product development, acquisitions and mergers and expansion are some of the key strategies adopted by players in the Silicone in Construction Industry. Major players in the Silicone Market in the Construction Industry are Reiss Manufacturing Inc., KCC Corporation, Dow Corning, Shin-Etsu Silicones, Wacker Group, DuPont, Bostik, Kaneka Corporation, Hutchinson and Evonik Industries among others.
