Synopsis of Specialty Silicone Market:
Silicones are also known as polisiloxanes, these are polymers that include synthetic compounds made up of siloxane. Silicones are heat resistant and are widely used in adhesives, lubricants, cooking utensils, medicine, and thermal and electric insulation. Specialty Silicones are versatile products that help in enhancing the product performance and make them more durable and effective. Specialty silicones are extensively used in many industries such as electronics, personal care, health care, and building and construction among others. Properties such as thermal stability, low toxicity, low chemical reactivity, and heat and water resistance among others make Specialty Silicones suitable for many end-use industries. The increasing demand from the end user industries is the major factor augmenting the growth of the market. Moreover, the growing demand for Specialty Silicone from the skin lightning and other skin care products is further expected to surge the market growth. The global market is segmented on the basis of product type and applications.
Among the various segments in Specialty Silicone Market, the silicone elastomer segment is the leading segment of the market and is anticipated to continue its dominance over the forecast period. They are extensively used in applications such as dental, medical implants, aerospace, and automotive applications. Superior qualities of silicone elastomers such as low surface friction, tear resistance, thermal resistance and self-adhesive nature pave the way for silicone elastomers to be used in the construction, automotive, consumer goods, healthcare, electrical and electronics among others. The market for the end-use industry is segregated into textiles, healthcare, electronics, agriculture, construction, cosmetic and personal care, chemical, automotive and others. In the end use industries, the construction is the dominant segment and is expected to grow at an encouraging CAGR. The elastomeric properties and durability to withstand harsh climates make specialty silicones an effective use as an adhesive in building and construction.
