According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Silicones Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028”, the global silicones market size reached US$ 13.7 Billion in 2022. Silicones are a group of synthetic polymers composed of repeating units of silicon, oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen atoms. They are widely recognized for their remarkable properties and have found extensive applications across various industries. One of the defining characteristics of silicones is their exceptional temperature resistance. They can withstand both high and low temperatures without losing their physical properties, making them ideal for use in extreme environments, such as aerospace, automotive, and electronic applications. Another prominent feature of silicones is their excellent flexibility and elasticity. These materials can be stretched and compressed without permanent deformation, making them ideal for applications that require resilience, like gaskets and seals. Silicones also possess outstanding water repellency and resist moisture, making them well-suited for use in water-resistant coatings, sealants, and electronic encapsulants. Their resistance to degradation from exposure to water and moisture contributes to their durability and long-lasting performance. Additionally, silicones are chemically inert and biocompatible, making them safe for use in medical and healthcare products. They find applications in medical implants, wound dressings, and personal care items due to their non-toxic and hypoallergenic nature. Their ability to withstand high voltages and maintain stable dielectric properties makes them essential in the manufacturing of electrical connectors and insulators.
