Silicones are high-performance materials manufactured by reacting silicon metal and methyl chloride. The chief building blocks for silicones are silanes. Silicones have exceptional properties such as high flexibility and resistivity to moisture, ultraviolet radiation, etc., which makes them excellent materials for many industries. On the basis of type, the silicone market is segmented into silicone elastomers, silicone resins, silicone fluids, silicone gels, and other products. By end-use industry, the market is segmented into building & construction, transportation, personal care & consumer products, industrial process, electronics, medical & healthcare, energy, and others. The market is witnessing growth due to the efficient and sustainable properties of silicone which makes them suitable for use in various end-use industries. Increasing demand for silicones in emerging countries of Asia Pacific and the Middle East & Africa region is also driving the market. The global silicone market is estimated at USD 14.20 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 18.87 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.85% between 2017 and 2022.

The Asia Pacific region is projected to be the fastest-growing market, in terms of both value and volume, during the forecast period. China is projected to be the fastest-growing silicone market in Asia Pacific, accounting for a major share of the demand for silicones in the region.

The Dow Chemical Company (US) is one of the leading players in the silicone market. The company has been focusing on organic strategies such as expansion and new product development to maintain its leading position in the market. For example, In September 2018, the Dow Chemical Company announced investment plans to meet the demand for silicone and drive innovation. The low capital intensity, high return-on-investment in its upstream and downstream silicone franchise will accelerate innovation and support the global customer demand. This will further boost high growth in markets, such as high-performance buildings, home and personal care, electrical and industrial, consumer goods and components assembly.

Wacker Chemie AG (Germany) is another major player in the silicone market. In July 2019, the company launched new silicone additives for thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) under the brand name, Genioplast Pellet 345 during the K 2019 event in Dusseldorf, Germany. In June 2019, the company expanded its silicone elastomer production in China with an annual capacity of 7,000 metric tons. This expansion will support Wacker’s future growth path in China and improve the availability of HCR (High Consistency Rubber) in the APAC region.
