Silicones: United States

Silicones: United States

This report forecasts to 2023 US silicone demand in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level. Total demand is segmented by product in terms of: elastomers, fluids, resins, and gels and other products such as foams and pastes. Total demand is also segmented by market as follows: transportation; construction; personal care; electronic products; medical and healthcare; and other markets such as chemical, electrical equipment, and machinery.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2008 to 2018; the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2008, 2013, and 2018.

For the purposes of this report, silicones are defined as polymers of silicon and oxygen. To avoid double counting, silicone demand is determined at the producer level and includes only basic products such as elastomers, fluids, resins, and gels.

Siloxanes used as silicone products themselves (as in personal care product formulations) are also included. Foam control agents used in foam insulation are included in the chemicals – rather than the construction – market.

Excluded are: downstream silicone products such as adhesives, sealants, lubricants, defoamers, and molded rubber goods; siloxanes used as raw materials for silicones, although siloxanes used as silicone products themselves (as in personal care product formulations) are included; silanes, including chlorosilane intermediates and silane coupling agents, which are not defined as silicone polymers; and fluids used as intermediates in the production of other silicone product types, including gels, elastomers, and resins.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
