Drivers and Constraints Impacting the Market
Specialty silicones are suitable for several end-use industries. With the growing demand from the end-use industries, the global specialty silicone market is anticipated to propel. Also, high demand from skin lightning and other skincare products is presumed to augment the market growth. One of the major end-use industries is the construction sector which drives the global specialty silicone market. Owing to its attributes such as temperature and weather resistant properties, waterproof abilities, and UV stability, specialty silicones are extensively used in the construction sector.
On the flip side, specialty silicones are also used in the skincare products which are harmful for the skin. This is likely to retard the market growth in the coming years.
The Global Specialty Silicone Market has been segmented on the basis of type, end-use industry, and region.
By Mode Of Type, the global specialty silicone market has been segmented into silicone polish, silicone greases, silicone elastomers, silicone textile softeners, silicone surfactants, and others. Among these, the silicone elastomer segment is presumed to be the leading segment and is anticipated to maintain its dominance over the assessment period. The growth is attributed to its extensive use in applications like medical implants, dental, automotive applications, and aerospace. Superior qualities such as tear resistance, low surface friction, self-adhesive nature, and thermal resistance makes it ideal to be used in the construction, consumer goods, automotive, electronics, healthcare, cosmetic and personal care industry.
By Mode Of End-Use Industry, the global specialty silicone market has been segmented into heathcare, textile, electronics, construction, agriculture, personal care, chemical and others. Among these, the construction industry dominates the global market and is presumed to maintain its dominance over the review period. Specialty silicone possesses durability and elastomeric properties to withstand harsh climate. This further makes it an effective use as an adhesive in the construction and building industry.
Geographically, the specialty silicone market span across regions namely, North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa.
Among all the regions, Asia Pacific is presumed to hold the maximum market share and is anticipated to be the fastest growing market. The growth is attributed to the rising population coupled with increasing disposable income. Also, the booming construction industry in countries like Indonesia, China, India, South Korea, and Vietnam is triggering the demand for silicone adhesive across the globe.
