Global Silicone Sealants Market Size, Segments, Outlook, and Revenue Forecast 2022-2030 by Product Type (Acetoxy, Amino, Oximinics, and Acetic), Technology (Room Temperature Vulcanizing (RTV), Thermoset or Heat Cured, Radiation Cured, and Pressure Sensitive), Application (Building & Construction, Semiconductors & Electronics, Automotive, Glass, and Wood Furniture), and Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America Middle East and Africa)
Silicone sealants are widely and frequently utilized in building projects for panels, expansion joints, weatherproofing, and other applications. The sealants belong to the adhesive family that is found in a liquid or gel-like state and must be cured or dried to get the best adherence.
According to Ken Research Analysis, the global silicone sealants market is expected to record a positive CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period (2022-2030) and is expected to reach approximately US$ 7 billion by 2030.
Silicone exhibits exceptional resistance to moisture, weathering, and other chemicals, and unlike other adhesive types, it can maintain its stability and elasticity at both low and high temperatures which is propelling the demand for the product in markets across the globe. The product is adopted by various end-user industries like building & construction, semiconductors & electronics, automotive, glass, and wood furniture.
The silicone sealants market is positively impacted by the ongoing search for industrial adhesives and sealants with innovative chemical formulas that can endure high levels of stress. This goes hand in hand with the transformation taking place in the manufacturing and architectural sectors.
The demand for the product is also being pushed up as to combine two distinct materials, silicone sealants are increasingly being employed in place of traditional mechanical fastening and welding techniques. In structural glazing applications, particularly energy-efficient glazing, silicone sealants are frequently used as they have superior adhesive qualities and lower component weight overall when compared to alternative joining techniques. As per the National Center for Biotechnology Information, adhesives and sealants (AS) are materials with exceptional qualities, adaptability, and straightforward curing mechanisms. These are extensively employed in a variety of fields, from building construction to the medical sector.
Developments are coming into action to fetch the benefits of silicone sealants. In June 2022, Dow released the first carbon-neutral silicones for facades that have been externally PAS 2060-verified. Carbon-neutral silicones support more resource and energy-efficient building practices, as well as circularity at the end of a facade's useful life.
The factor limiting the market growth is that various countries are using eco-friendly products in different applications due to the rise in environmental challenges and governing laws. Construction sealant producers all over the world are re-designing their policies to assure safety and prevent health problems brought on by VOC emissions from chemical products. Manufacturers in the European and North American regions are impacted in terms of their manufacturing capacities.
Environmental regulations are very demanding in Europe and North America when it comes to the manufacturing of chemical and petroleum-based products. In recent years, structural glazing and structural glazing silicone have received European Standards endorsement, and the potential for a qualifying structural sealant to be a CE-mark-approved component is recognizing the product's capability to withstand the crucial requirements of modern construction.
The emergence of the global health catastrophe brought on by the coronavirus pandemic has had a bad impact on the industrial sector globally. The pandemic's effects on supply chain interruptions, a lack of raw materials, and the closure of important facilities have particularly hurt the construction sector. Nearly 25% of construction projects worldwide were halted as a result of lockdowns related to COVID-19, according to the RICS 2020a (RICS Global Construction Monitor), which polled over 2000 industry professionals.
The gradual restart of company operations, increasing attention being paid to construction, and the subsequent increase in demand for materials like silicone sealants may portend the possibility of a rebound in the years to come. To meet the demands of a changing market, manufacturers are concentrating on enhancing their capacity through acquisitions and joint ventures. To enhance its expansion in the high-quality sealants industry, Soudal, for instance, purchased Momentive Performance Materials' silicone manufacturing facility in April 2021.

Key Trends by Market Segment
By Product Type: Acetoxy product type segment held the largest share in the Global Silicone Sealants Market in 2021.
The Acetoxy segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Building and construction in kitchen backsplashes, door and window frames, bathrooms & bathtubs, countertop sealing, and other areas are contributing to the dominance and growth of acetoxy silicone sealants. It is because of the positive features like acetoxy sealants dry much more quickly than neutral cure silicone and typically become tack-free within minutes is one of their main advantages.
According to the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), the construction industry, which employs more than 733,000 people, produces approximately $1.4 trillion worth of structures annually, which in turn propels the demand for acetoxy being used in the above-mentioned applications.
By Technology: Room Temperature Vulcanizing (RTV) technology segment held the highest market share in the Global Silicone Sealants Market in 2021.
The growing use of alkoxy, acetoxy, and oxime silicone sealants in structural applications in the building & construction, and automotive industries is a major factor driving the need for room temperature vulcanizing. RTV propels more than 200% elongation of sealants required in different application areas of the building & construction.
Thermoset or heat-cured segment is expected to experience the fastest growth of over 6% during the forecast period. Cross-linked Technology resins used in Thermoset silicone sealants are cured at high temperatures. These can be used in equipment and assembly applications in a variety of industries, including aerospace and automotive, due to their capacity to tolerate high temperatures.
By Application: Building & construction application segment held the largest market share in the Global Silicone Sealants Market in 2021.
In the building & construction sector, silicone sealants are used for a variety of things, including bathroom and kitchen fixtures, floor gap sealing, fire-rated joints around pipes, electrical conduits, ducts, and electrical wiring inside of building walls and ceilings.
Silicone sealants are resistant to temperature changes. They are a desirable building material since they are also resistant to thermal expansion and contraction, wind oscillation, and even seismic movement.
Major manufacturers are expanding their production capacity as a result of the silicone sealant’s increased demand in the building & construction sector.
By Geography: Asia Pacific accounted for the largest market share in the Global Silicone Sealants Market in 2021.
With the rise in the construction industry, the thermoset and RTV sealants market segments in the region are expected to rise significantly.
