Type - Segment Analysis

Elastomers segment holds the largest market share in the Automotive Silicone market. Elastomers include hardness, tensile strength (resistance to break under tension) and compression set. Other elastomers characteristics include excellent bacteria resistance and hydrophobicity, meaning that it acts as a water repellent. Food grade elastomers is well-suited for consumer products manufacturing applications. Highly versatile and possessing the ability to withstand extreme temperatures. elastomers are used primarily in belts and hoses, bellows, and gaskets. At the separation between engine compartment and the interior, elastomers are used for sound management. Inside the car, they are used in floors, instrument panel skins, instrument panels for soft touch, gaskets for side mirrors, and among others.

Application - Segment Analysis

Interior & Exterior segment has been the primary market for Automotive Silicone. Silicone rubber delivers the strength, resistance and durability required for reliable automotive applications. As consumers demand a boost in power and performance, the heat increase that is generated is a factor that engineers must consider and manage, and this is where a quality engineering specialist comes into play. Automotive manufacturers rely heavily on the quality and performance of rubber materials and, with increasing heat present in new vehicles, silicone rubber comes into its own, offering the perfect solution. Due to the temperature rise, there has been an increase in silicone usage being used in new vehicles as EPDM gets replaced, due to its inferior temperature performance (140°C max).

Geography - Segment Analysis

APAC has dominated the Automotive Silicone market with a share of more than xx%, followed by North America and Europe. Countries such as India, China, among others in Asia are witnessing high growth in the aviation and automotive industries. According to OICA, APAC automotive sales witnessed a growth of over 6.52% during 2012-2018, with South East Asian countries having huge potential to grow. Silicones are high-performance polymers that exhibit properties of both inorganic and organic compounds. Silicones have a multitude of characteristics including heat resistance, cold resistance, weatherability, water repellency, defoaming properties, adhesiveness, releasability and dielectric properties. 

Drivers – Automotive Silicone Market
  • Growing demand for lightweight vehicles
Rising demand for lightweight materials in the automotive industry, favoring market growth of Automotive Silicone. Silicones make cars safer, more reliable and more comfortable in many ways. They are also used upstream in various manufacturing processes, such as tire demolding, and they enter into consumable products such as lubricants where they enhance performance and increase the durability of engines. Silicones also contribute to weight reductions and lower emissions. In short, they play an essential role in improving practically all aspects of manufacturing in the automotive industry.
  • Implementation of Stringent Environment Regulations
Governments globally are focusing on giving boost to the electric and solar vehicles on road to lower down pollution. By increasing more and more eco-friendly vehicles the market for automotive silicone market will grow. For an example Tata Motors launched Hybrid and electric Starbus from manufacturing facility in Pune under its zero-emission mass transport solution. Owing to this, Governments regulations will indirectly promote the automotive silicone market. 

Challenges – Automotive Silicone Market
  • Impact of COVID 19
The rapid spread of coronavirus has had a major impact on global markets as, major economies of the world are completely lockdown due to this pandemic. Because of this major lockdown, suddenly all the consumer market has started to show zero interest towards purchasing any goods. One of the major difficulties, market is facing are the shutdown of all kinds of International transportation. Global crisis for all sectors including shipping, which was hit by slowing demand in goods’ production and exports had slowdown the market for Automotive silicone.

Market Landscape
Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Automotive Silicone market. In 2019, the market of Automotive Silicone has been consolidated by the top five players accounting for xx% of the share. Major players in the Automotive Silicone Market are Dowdupont, KCC Corporation, Siltech, Momentive Performance Materials, Wacker Chemie, Mccoy Performance Silicones, among others. 

Acquisitions/Technology Launches
  • In November 2017, Wacker Chemie expanded its production capacities for silicone and polymer products in China. It expanded its solid silicone rubber manufacturing facility in Zhangjiagang, China which helped the company to support its customers’ growth and strengthen the market position in the region.
  • In January 2018, Elkem launched new tire-release agents Lyndcoat BR2105 and Lyndcoat BR2205. It is designed to bring durable and slip enabling multi-release technology in the automotive applications. This launch has helped the company to expand its silicone product offering in the tire application.
