Silicone in Electrical and Electronics Market by Type (Fluids, Elastomers, Resins, and Gels) and End-Use Industry (Automotive, Consumer Electronics, Telecommunications, and Others) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023

Silicones are durable materials that resist decay caused due to several adverse conditions, such as electromagnetic disturbances, moisture, and sunlight. Silicones bond with multiple materials, such as aluminum, steel, and plastics. Moreover, they have effectively proven to prevent humidity and hot & cold air in temperature-sensitive electronics, such as air conditioners and refrigerators. In addition, silicon rubbers are used in electronics industry, owing to its application of sealing, gasketing, and affixing components.

The market for silicone in electrical and electronics industry has witnessed a rapid growth in the past due to growth of electronics industry and increase in usage of silicone products by end use, such as automotive, consumer electronics, and telecommunication. The global silicone in electrical and electronics market was valued at $1,708 million in 2016, and is projected to reach $2,644 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2017 to 2023. This is due to rapid growth of end use industries, increase in demand for silicone in electrical and electronics industry, and rapid consumption of silicone products.

Currently, the global silicone in electrical and electronics market witnesses a wide range of opportunities, owing to the increase in demand for silicone products among consumers. Moreover, increase in the use of silicone sealants & adhesives in consumer electronics enhances the weathering, radiation, and chemical resistance. Furthermore, rise in expenditure toward improvement of automotive & telecommunication structures in emerging markets, such as China, India, and Korea, augments the use of silicone in the form of gaskets, sealants, and waterproofing materials in electronic applications. In addition, shear stability, low volatility, and lesser surface tension properties make silicone fluids and elastomers ideal for electronics industry.
