Silicone elastomers are vulcanized, cross-linked, silicone based polymeric fluids. Silicone elastomers exhibit favourable properties like ozone & UV resistance, low flammability, low compressibility and high thermal conductivity. Hence, they find a wide application in industries like electrical and electronics, automotive and transportation, industrial machinery, consumer goods, buildings & constructions and healthcare. Silicone elastomers are used as sealants, for structural glazing, mold making, ignition cables, door seals, gaskets, tubes, utensils surgical devices, catheters etc.
High temperature vulcanized silicone elastomers are the leading products of the global silicone elastomers market. However, the demand of room temperature vulcanized silicone elastomers is also rising consistently. Increasing production facilities are helping the global silicone elastomers market expand. Biggest end user of the silicone elastomers is the automotive industry followed by healthcare sector. Advancement in these is helping the global silicone elastomers market expand.
Government policies and initiatives of developing nations are also supporting the growth of global silicone elastomers market. However, the high production cost is restraining the market from growing to its full potential. This market has a good scope to expand in the coming future owing to the companies increasing their production capacity and expanding their product line. This strategy is also helping industries attract variety end-users.
Asia-Pacific leads the global silicone elastomers market in terms of both demand and production followed by Europe and North America. China leads the silicone elastomers market in the Asia-Pacific region. The silicone elastomers market of Middle East & Africa is also expected to display. Key players in global silicone elastomers market include Momentive Performance Materials Inc, Wacker Chemie AG, Dow Corning Corporation, Shin-etsu Corporation, KCC Corporation, Bluestar Silicones, Reiss Manufacturing Inc and Mesgo s.p.a, ContiTech AG, Marsh Bellofram, Bentec Medical Incorporated, AkzoNobel, Sigmasoft Engineering GmbH, Momentive, Rogers Corporation and Saint-Gobain.
