Silicones Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027

Market Overview:

The global silicones market size reached US$ 13.0 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 18.3 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 6% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Silicones, also known as polysiloxanes, are inert synthetic compounds, which can be manufactured in numerous forms, including oil, rubber, resin, and liquid. They are flexible and resistant to chemicals, moisture, UV rays, and high and low temperatures. As they enable fabrics to retain their shape and texture, silicones are used in the production of lightweight, durable, water-repellent, and high-performing sportswear. Besides this, it finds extensive application in the healthcare, aerospace, personal care, electronics, transportation, and construction industries.
