As an injection materials for molding processes, the effectiveness of liquid silicone rubber is in unison with the efficiency of fabrication technologies such as liquid injection molding. Robust popularity of liquid injection molding systems in the manufacturing sector is expected to reflect a sharp growth in the adoption of liquid silicone rubber. Unique mixing properties of liquid silicone rubber have driven its feasibility in terms of gelling with other materials during molding processes. It has been estimated that through 2026, more than 60% of liquid silicone rubber produced in the world will be used in liquid injection molding systems.

High Value Growth for Automotive End-uses of Liquid Silicone Rubber

The end-use of liquid silicone rubber is diversified across the manufacturing sector of multiple industries and verticals. Currently, consumer goods industry registers the highest end-use of liquid silicone rubbers. By the end of 2026, more than 23% of liquid silicone rubber manufactured globally will be used by the consumer goods industry. However, the report estimates that automotive end-use of liquid silicone rubber will reflect highest value CAGR of 5.4% over the forecast period. OEMs will be widely using liquid silicone rubber in the manufacturing of multi-component plastics, harness components such as ring seals, lighted panel buttons and anti-drain backflow valves, among others.

Industrial Grade Liquid Silicone Rubber to Reflect 45% Share on Global Market Value

Manufacturers of liquid silicone rubber products will remain focused upon extending the capacities for producing industrial grade rubber. By 2026-end, more than US$ 3.5 billion worth of industrial grade liquid silicone rubber is expected to be sold across the globe. Medical grade liquid silicone rubber, on the other hand, will reflect a steady value CAGR over the forecast period. Dow Corning Corporation, China National Chemical Corporation, Bluestar Silicones International, Evonik Industries AG, Momentive Performance Materials, Inc., NuSil Technology LLC, Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd., SiVance, LLC, Wacker Chemie AG, KCC Corporation, Zhejiang Xinan Chemical Industrial Group Co., Ltd., Simtec Silicone Parts, LLC, Stockwell Elastomerics Inc., Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation, and Xinapse Systems Ltd. are the key companies producing liquid silicone rubber in the global marketplace. These companies are expected to consider the predominant demand for industrial grade liquid silicone rubber while planning their strategies towards future market direction.
