The global liquid silicone rubber market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 8% during the period 2019?2025.

The automotive industry is expected to be a major end-user of LSR products. The concepts of micro molding and cleanroom molding and the dominance of liquid injection molding systems in the manufacturing industry are likely to emerge as the major contributing factors for market growth. The APAC region is expected to dominate the market during the forecast as the region is witnessing the growth in manufacturing industries. The increasing dominance of IoT and AI and virtual reality is changing the landscape of the electronics industry as the demand for LSRs in advanced consumer durables is increasing. Further, the use in automotive LEDs and spare parts is influencing market growth.

The introduction of new MICROLIM molding machines, which are suitable for cleanroom and medical applications, is expected to drive the market substantially. As liquid injection molding processes produce less waste with short cycle time, the market is expected to witness growth during the forecast period. The market for liquid injection molding systems (LIMS) tends to increase due to their efficiency in producing components with modern foaming and thermoset overmolding. The ‘2K’ molding feature, which comprises multi-material, multi-color, and multi-durometer processing, is expected to be a vital growth factor for the utilization of LSR in the molding stage.

The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the liquid silicone rubber market during the forecast period:
•Increased LIMS Technology in Manufacturing
•Evolution in Micro Molding Process
•Growth of Lightings and Sensors in Automobiles
•Progress in 3D Printing

The study considers the present scenario of the liquid silicone rubber market and its market dynamics for the period 2019?2025. It covers a detailed overview of several market growth enablers, restraints, and trends. The report covers both the demand and supply sides of the market. It also profiles and examines leading companies and other prominent companies operating in the market.

Liquid Silicone Rubber Market: Segmentation

This research report includes detailed segmentation by grade, end-user, and geography. Food grade liquid silicone rubbers are widely used for food preparation and storage. They are designed in such a way that they become hypoallergenic to consumers. They resist bacteria and microorganism growth, thereby increasing their application in the food and beverage industry. They are widely prescribed for kitchenware appliances, as these materials have a high thermal resistance. The APAC region holds maximum revenue in the liquid silicone rubber market due to rapidly growing end-user industries such as electrical, automotive, and baby care in China and India.

The automotive industry is witnessing a steady growth in the adoption of automation technology. The adoption of liquid silicone rubber as a cost-effective alternative to traditional rubbers is seen as a breakthrough for market growth. The increasing demand for lightweight materials in automobile manufacturing is likely to boost demand.
As LSRs offer consistency, stability, durability, quality, and cost-effectiveness, they are increasingly being used in the manufacturing of a range of syringe stoppers, flow control valves, connectors, caps, and device components. Hence, the growing application of these materials in the production of medical disposables is expected to emerge as a significant driver for the global liquid silicone rubber market.
The replacement of thermoplastic elastomers by liquid silicone rubber for the manufacturing of baby care products, infant goods, and other consumer durables is a significant boost for the baby care market growth. APAC has emerged as the strongest market for consumer and baby care products.
