The silicone market effectively consists of sales of silicone and connected services for the utilization in the manufacturing of lubricants and synthetic rubber. They are classified by thermal stability, hydrophobic nature and physiological unresponsiveness. The Silicone (except resins) is broadly utilized in the medical industry to produce the surgical implants and dental impression materials.
According to the report analysis, ‘Silicone Global Market Report 2020’ states that in the silicone global market there are several corporates which presently operating more significantly for leading the highest market growth and dominating the handsome value of market share around the globe during the short span of time while spreading the awareness related to the silicone, decreasing the linked prices, improving the specifications of the production technologies, implementing the profitable strategies, analyzing and studying the strategies and policies of the government as well as competitors, and employing the young work force includes Final List of Companies, Wacker-Chemie GmbH, CSL Silicones, Specialty Silicone Products Incorporated, Evonik Industries AG, Kaneka Corporation, Dow Corning Corporation, Momentive, Elkem ASA, Gelest Inc. and several others.
The worldwide silicone market was worth USD 120.43 billion in 2019. It is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5% and reach USD 155.12 billion by 2023.The silicone market has been geographically classified into North America, Western Europe, Asia-Pacific, Eastern Europe, South America and Middle East & Africa. During 2019, Asia Pacific was the greatest region in the silicone market.
The growing demand of silicone in dissimilar industries is expected to influence the silicone market. Silicone materials are being expansively utilized in industries such as construction, transportation, electrical & electronics, textiles and personal care and pharmaceuticals. The Silicone materials such as silicone sealants, adhesives and coatings have foremost applications in construction. Also, in electronics sector, silicon is used to deliver the high thermal stability and resistance to weathering, ozone, moisture, and UV radiation in the electronic products.
While, the shutdown of silicone production conveniences in Germany, USA and China due to different environmental aspects and government sustainable policies disrupted the supply of silicone during recent years. This has augmented pressure on the manufacturers to raise the costs of silicone materials. For instance, corporates such as Wacker Chemie AG, Elkem Silicones, Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., and Momentive Performance Materials Inc. augmented silicone elastomers prices by 10% to 30% at the end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018 owing to an augment in raw material and energy costs. Therefore, vacillations in the prices of raw materials are expected to restrict the silicone market growth.
The growing demand for green chemicals is propelling the growth of the silicone market. The augmenting stress on the usage of environmentally friendly materials is positively completing the silicone market. The Silicone products are observed as environmental friendly and resilient than that of the plastic products. For instance, during 2019, as per The Canadian Health Department reports on its website, definite that there are no health risks linked with the usage of silicon cookware instead of plastic cookware.
Throughout 2019, Elkem ASA, a Norway based leading silicone producer, acquired Basel Chemie Co., Ltd for an undisclosed amount. The Acquisition of Basel Chemie Co., Ltd was focused to reinforce Elkem ASA’s silicone gel manufacturing competences. Basel ChemieCo., Ltd. is a South Korea based company that specializes in producing silicone gels for its usage in cosmetics and water repellents. Therefore, in the near years, it is predicted that the market of silicone will increase around the globe over the upcoming future.
