Global Silicone Polymer Market Report to 2028 - by Type, End-use Industry and Region -

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Silicone Polymer Market, by Type, by End-Use Industry, and by Region - Size, Share, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2022 - 2028" report has been added to's offering.

Silicone polymers are also called as polysiloxanes. Silicone polymers have an alternating -Si-O- type structure. This basic structural unit is found in many rocks and minerals in nature including common sand. Silicone polymers are diverse class of fluids, resins, or elastomers based on polymerized siloxanes.

Silicone polymers are used in various end use industries such as industrial process, electrical & electronics, building & construction, transportation, personal care & consumer products, electrical & electronics, and pharmaceutical.

Silicone polymers are an important class of inorganic polymers that find many industrial uses. The silicon polymers have the general structure [Si (R2)-O] - where R = -CH3 is called poly (dimethyl siloxane). Silicone polymers possess excellent chemical properties such as outstanding temperature and oxidative stability, excellent low temperature flexibility, and high resistance to weathering and chemicals. These polymers also have low surface tension and are capable of wetting most surfaces. Thus, aforementioned factors are expected to boost the demand for silicone polymers market.

The growing demand for silicone polymers in various applications is expected to boost the consumption of silicone polymers during forecast period. Moreover, many market players are focusing on partnership native vegetable growers for developing health food products is expected to boost the demand for silicone polymers. For instance, in August 2020, Wacker Chemie AG extended a partnership with H.M. Royal, a distributor of specialty chemicals and ingredients, for the distribution of SILPURAN, a Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) and High Consistency Rubber (HCR), specifically designed for medical application. This partnership will enable the company to cater to the medical industry more efficiently.

The growing demand for silicone polymers in textiles, paper, leather packaging, labels, and airbags applications is expected to propel the demand for silicone over the forecast period. In the aforementioned applications, silicone is used as a solvent, adhesive, wetting agent, and anti-foaming agent. Thus, growing demand for silicone polymers is expected to boost the market growth during forecast period.
