Silicones are stable and inert compounds and are widely used in almost all the modern industries, ranging from automotive & transportation, electrical & electronics, medical & personal care, and chemical.. The unique and useful properties of silicones such as low thermal conductivity, low chemical reactivity, low toxicity, and thermal stability make products stronger, more aesthetic, stable, user friendly, and durable.
Asia-Pacific is the leader in the global silicone market and this dominance is projected to continue till 2020. China is the key market in this region, having a market share of more than half of the global demand for silicones. China is followed by India, where the market size by volume is growing at a moderate rate.
An increase in the demand for silicones in composite applications has been observed in the Asia-Pacific region due to its low prices and wide variety of applications. Also, production facilities of silicones are majorly concentrated in Asia-Pacific which is driving the continuous growth and innovation in the silicone market, this market is projected to ascertain a significant growth in the coming years.
The silicone market is segmented on the basis of types that include elastomers, fluids, resins, gels, and other products.
