·6-min read

Dublin, July 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Silicone Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Technology, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030" report has been added to's offering.

Global silicone demand is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 4.55%. Silicones are polymers manufactured by polymerizing siloxanes which are monomers containing silicon atoms connected by oxygen, carbon and hydrogen atoms. They are of several types including elastomers, resins, fluids, and gels. They have many properties including durability, foam control, adhesion, UV stability, discharge safety, transparency, glossiness, radiation resistance, heat resistance, and flexibility.

Due to these properties, silicones have several end use industries such as building and construction, industrial process, personal care and consumer products, electronics, transportation, medical and healthcare, energy. Increasing demand form the construction and electronics industry is projected to drive the demand of silicones for the forecast period. Demand growth from other sectors include the personal care and consumer products and medical and healthcare sector. Moreover, stringent regulatory policies regarding use of silicones might hinder the demand growth during the forecast period.

In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns which had an impact on a number of industries. Construction and electronics were among the most affected industries during the pandemic. This had an impact on the demand of silicone for the first half of 2020. The demand for silicone fell during the coronavirus pandemic.

Region wise, Asia pacific region holds the major share of global demand for silicone due to increasing demand of application industries such as construction, electronics, personal care etc. Moreover, increasing population and per capita income in emerging economies like India and China coupled with growing number of products using silicone is another factor influencing demand growth in the Asia Pacific region.
