Silicone Oil Market by Type (Straight Silicone Oil and Modified Silicone Oil), Application (Sealant, Skin &Hair Care, Textile Coating, Detergent, Chemical Intermediate, Anti-foam Agent, Release Agent, and Others), End-Use Industry (Chemical, Construction, Personal Care, Textile, Electronics, Automotive, Medical, and Others): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020-2027
The global silicone oil market was valued at $3.6 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $6.1 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2020 to 2027. Silicone oil, also known as polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), is a nonflammable, tasteless, nontoxic, and odorless liquid polymerized siloxane comprising organic acid chains. It is used across various end-user industries due to its high temperature stability, hydrophobicity, anti-shearing capability, excellent water & temperature resistance, good dielectric properties, and durability. It is an important tool in vitreoretinal surgery as it possesses the ability to remove aqueous humor from the surface of retina while maintaining the adhesion amid the retinal pigment epithelium and retina. Furthermore, it is used as a molding release agent for plastic and rubber products in the automotive industry since it’s non-adhesive to plastics, metals, and rubbers.
Surge in demand for silicone oil from emerging economies, growth in industrialization, and proliferation in applications fuels the market growth. Silicone oil has replaced hydrocarbon-based products in various industrial applications, owing to its thermal stability. Asia-Pacific was the leading region and is expected to register substantial growth due to increase in demand for personal care products from emerging markets, such as China and India; as well as rapid industrialization and rise in living standards. Moreover, the aforementioned factors are also expected to provide high potential for growth and development of silicone oil market. However, high manufacturing cost of silicone oil as compared to hydrocarbon oils limit its market growth.
