Asia-Pacific has the largest market share in the global silicones market. The region is a major manufacturing as well as exporting hub for electrical and electronics products in which silicones find extensive use. Asia-Pacific along with the Latin America contributed to the 5% growth of the global silicones market between 2016 and 2017 due to an increased demand for silicone fluids, elastomers and resins in the home and personal care sector, and the automotive industries in the regions.

Elkem Silicones (OTCMKTS: ELKEF), Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: CTA-B), Wacker Chemie AG (OTCMKTS: WKCMF), Shin-Etsu Chemical Co. Ltd. (OTCMKTS: SHECY), Ferroglobe PLC, Momentive Performance Materials Inc. and Evonik Industries AG are the key players in the global silicones market. The report provides an in-depth look into the latest developments among these major players including plant turnovers, expansions in capacity, and mergers and acquisitions.

There was an increase in the prices of silicone raw materials in early 2017 which consequently led to a hike in silicone prices, reaching their highest in Q1- 2017. This hike in prices led to key players in the global silicones industry like Wacker Chemie AG, Elkem Silicones, Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., and Momentive Performance Materials Inc. to increase their product costs by 10-30% between late 2017 and early 2018. However, these changes did not prove detrimental to the companies as they continued their expansions with Shin-Etsu Silicones introducing advanced eight-carbon silane coupling agents in the June of 2018 and Wacker Chemie AG awarding a U.K. company, Intertronics a distribution contract covering U.K. and Ireland for silicone products. The silicone prices eventually decreased in the latter half of 2018 due to the softening of raw material prices and the relaxation of China’s environmental policies.
