Silicone rubbers are elastomers based on high molecular weight linear polymers, generally polydimethysiloxanes, which also may be modified with functional groups. Silicone rubbers are available in liquid or paste consistencies. They are also available as room-temperature-vulcanizing (RTV) sealants, adhesives, potting, and encapsulating compounds, gums, bases, and compounded stocks for fabricating heat-cured rubber products. Silicone rubbers are considered as one of the best materials and are highly valued for exceptional properties of elongation, high tear strength, good thermal conductivity, and temperature and fire resistance.
Increasing demand for silicone rubber from the plastics industry, increasing applications in medical devices and use in products for applications in healthcare sectors are some of the major factors driving growth of the silicone rubber market. In addition, properties such as resistance to heat and chemicals, along with growing demand from various industries such as automotive and electronics are among other factors expected to drive growth of the silicone rubber market. Furthermore, wide applicability of liquid silicone rubber in the production of household goods such as protective gloves, mats, ice cube and jelly moulds, bread moulds, lampshades, and various others, is expected to continue to support growth of the target market over the forecast period.
Increasing R&D activities by major manufacturers for development of innovative products is expected to present new opportunities in terms of revenue for players operating in the global silicone rubber market over the forecast period. Moreover, high demand for automobiles and trending antimicrobial silicone rubber which is ideal for use in food & beverage and pharmaceutical sectors are expected to provide further opportunities for growth of players operating in the global silicone rubber market.
However, fluctuation in supply and prices of raw materials can act as a major restraining factor for growth of the market.
By application: Among the application segments, the automotive segment is expected to account for majority revenue share over the forecast period, owing to high market potential for investment and rise in demand for related parts.
The market in North America is expected to dominate the global silicone rubber market.
