Silicone Elastomers Market – Market Overview
Silicone Elastomer referred to as synthetic rubber that is available in various forms such as solids, closed cell sponge, electrically conductive, open cell forms and thermally conductive materials. These elastomers possess superior properties such as electrical and thermal resistance, low surface friction, flame retardancy and self-adhesive nature which increases the demand of product across various application such as automotive, construction, medical & healthcare and electrical & electronics among others. Growing demand of product in structural glazing and sealants are anticipated to drive the silicone elastomer in construction industry. Moreover, rising demand of Silicone Elastomers in aviation sector owing to low thermal conductivity is projected to drive the market growth.
Silicone Elastomers are considered ideal elastomer which contains both mechanical and chemical properties. These properties enable its usage in commercial as well as industrial applications such as hoses, spark plug boots, vibration dampers, ignition cables and structural glazing among others. Moreover, these polymers are also used in door seals, shoe inserts, kitchen utensils, dental and surgical devices and sterilization mats.
The various Silicone Elastomer product types available in the market are high temperature vulcanize (HTV), room temperature vulcanize (RTV) and liquid silicone rubber (LSR) among others. Liquid silicone rubber finds extensive application in electronic and electrical equipment industry owing to its superior properties such as low viscosity, chemical stability and electrical resistance. Growing demand of room temperature vulcanize (RTV) in applications such as sealing, lens, molds in electrical and electronics, health care and medical equipment’s are anticipated to drive overall market growth. Based on application, automobile industry is leading the end use industry segment due to rising investment in lightweight component parts to meet government regulations and increasing automotive cluster in emerging economies. In addition, increasing demand of safe and sterile surgical elastomers are also anticipated to open new opportunities in healthcare sector. Asia Pacific region witnessed high growth in terms of favourable government policies, rapid industrialization and technology advancement. Flourishing automotive industry in Japan and China is also expected to augment the market share. Further, China policy to have single child are expected to have less youth population compared to aged population. Thus, rising aging population will drive focus towards cosmetic surgery owing to stay presentable which aids to growth of Silicone Elastomer in regional market. Growing healthcare industry in U.S. and Canada is also likely to propel the market growth. Consequently, Chinese manufactures are dominating with price discrimination which leads to low demand of silicone elastomer in developed region. Hence, this can hamper the Global Silicone Elastomer Market growth.
