Siloxanes refer to volatile organosilicon compounds that are composed of recurring silicon-oxygen (Si-O) bonds, occurring in either cyclic or linear form. They are highly stable and physiologically inert, and have lubricating properties. Silicones are formulated from siloxanes and can take a variety of physical forms ranging from solids and semi-viscous pastes to liquids and oils. Due to their advantageous characteristics such as flexibility, resistance to moisture, stability, inertness, permeability to gases, etc., silicones find a wide array of industrial applications.
IMARC Group provides an analysis of the key trends in each sub-segment of the global silicones and siloxanes market report, along with forecasts at the global and regional level from 2022-2027. Our report has categorized the market based on type and application.
Breakup by Type:
Amongst these, elastomers account for more than a third of the total market share due to their non-reactive nature. This helps them to find applications in cooking, baking, and in the production of footwears, undergarments and cosmetics.
Breakup by Application:
Currently, industrial applications represent the largest segment since silicones are used as RTV sealants and anti-foaming agents owing to their resistance to high temperature and pressure.
Breakup by Type:
Linear siloxanes dominate the market, accounting for the largest market share. Dimethicones, a form of linear siloxane, are used as a medication to treat minor skin irritations. Apart from this, these siloxanes are majorly used as intermediates in the manufacturing of silicones.
Breakup by Application:
A dominant share of siloxanes is employed in the production of silicones which are further used in various industries.
On a geographical front, Asia Pacific enjoys the leading position in the silicones and siloxanes market on account of thriving construction and automotive industries, supported by surging population, rapid urbanisation and mounting disposable incomes. In addition, availability of raw materials and abundance of labour have created a positive outlook for the market growth.
The market is concentrated in nature with the presence of a handful of players who account for the majority of the total production. Some of the leading players operating in the market are:
