Executive Summary

Major players in the silicone market are Wacker-Chemie GmbH, CSL Silicones, Specialty Silicone Products Incorporated, Evonik Industries AG, Kaneka Corporation, Dow Corning Corporation, Momentive, Elkem ASA, and Gelest Inc.

The global silicone market is expected to grow from $15.88 billion in 2021 to $18.31 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.3%. The market is expected to grow to $33.74 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 16.5%.

The silicone market consists of sales of silicone and related services for usage in the manufacturing of lubricants and synthetic rubber. They are characterized by thermal stability, hydrophobic nature, and physiological inertness. Silicone (except resins) is widely used in the medical industry to manufacture surgical implants and dental impression materials.

The main product types of silicone are elastomers, fluids, gels, and other products. Elastomers are polymers that are having viscosity and elasticity and therefore are known as viscoelasticity. The silicone products are applied in construction, transportation, electrical and electronics, textiles, personal care and pharmaceuticals, and other applications that are used by industrial, electronics, machinery, aerospace, and medical sectors.

The Asia Pacific was the largest region in the silicone market. The regions covered in the silicone report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East, and Africa.

Rising demand for silicone in different industries is expected to propel the silicone market. Silicone materials are being extensively used in industries such as construction, transportation, electrical & electronics, textiles and personal care, and pharmaceuticals. Silicone materials such as silicone sealants, adhesives, and coatings have major applications in construction. Also, in the electronics sector, silicon is used to provide high thermal stability and resistance to weathering, ozone, moisture, and UV radiation in electronic products.

Rising prices of raw materials adding to the manufacturing costs are expected to restraint the growth of the silicone market. The low availability of raw silicone resulting from the shutting down of the manufacturing facilities is considered to be an important factor affecting the prices of silicone materials. The shutdown of silicone production facilities in Germany, the USA, and China due to different environmental factors and government sustainable policies disrupted the supply of silicone in recent years. This has increased pressure on the manufacturers to raise the prices of silicone materials. For instance, companies such as Wacker Chemie AG, Elkem Silicones, Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., and Momentive Performance Materials Inc. increased silicone elastomers prices by 10% to 30% due to an increase in raw material and energy costs. Therefore, fluctuations in the prices of raw materials are expected to hamper the silicone market growth.

The increasing demand for green chemicals is driving the growth of the silicone market. The increasing stress on the use of environmentally friendly materials is positively affecting the silicone market. Silicone products are regarded as environmentally friendly and more durable than that of plastic products. For instance, in 2019, The Canadian Health Department reported on its website, stated that there are no health risks associated with the use of silicone cookware instead of plastic cookware.

In 2019, Elkem ASA, a Norway-based leading silicone manufacturer, acquired Basel Chemie Co., Ltd for an undisclosed amount. Acquisition of Basel Chemie Co., Ltd was aimed to strengthen Elkem ASA's silicone gel manufacturing capabilities. Basel Chemie Co., Ltd. is a South Korea-based company that specializes in manufacturing silicone gels for its use in cosmetics and water repellents.

The countries covered in the silicone market are Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Russia, the UK, the USA, and Australia.
