Silane and Silicone Market Forecast, By Silanes (Coupling Agents, Cross-linking Agents, and Others), Silicones (Elastomers, Fluids, Resins, Gels, Conformal Coatings, and Others), and End User (Building & Construction, Transportation, Electronics, Medical, Textile & Leather, and Others): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018 - 2025
Silane and Silicone market Overview:
The silane and silicone market accounted for revenue of $ 14,479.0 million in 2017 and is anticipated to generate revenue of $ 22,030.3 million in 2025. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2018 to 2025. Silicone is an inert polymer that comprises silicon with oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, and other chemicals. Some of the common forms of silicones are resin, grease, oil, and rubber, which are used across automobile, medical, construction, and electronics industries. Silane is an organic compound containing a single or multiple silicon‐carbon bonds. Silane is produced by reacting silica sand with magnesium and then adding hydrochloric acid. One of the primary applications of silane is to bond two compounds together.
Silane is increasingly adopted in paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, rubber & plastics, and fiber treatment activities. Growth of the overall silicones & silanes market is driven by rise in demand from end-use industries, such as electronics & semiconductor. Unstable raw material prices such as silicon metal & methanol, and high energy prices are anticipated to hinder the market growth during the forecast period. Automobile manufacturers are focusing on fuel efficiency and regulation compliances. The major aim of the automotive industry is to improve fuel efficiency while simultaneously enhancing road safety. Due to stringent regulations and compliances, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are utilizing silanes to reduce the rolling resistance and to enhance the traction on wet or slippery surfaces in automobile applications. This is expected to offer future growth opportunities to the global silane and silicone market during the forecast period.
