Vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane is a polymer compound, most often applied in 2-part addition cure silicone elastomer. It can be manufactured in a variety of viscosities depending on the applications. Vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane has various properties such as low volatility; dirt, water, and heat resistance; and is commonly available in clear liquid form.
Vinyl Terminated Polydimethylsiloxane Market Dynamics:
Vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane is a colorless clear liquid, with average molecular weight of around 25,000. It is water, heat, dirt, and dust resistant, due to which it is widely used in adhesives and encapsulants. Major factors driving growth of the global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market are its safer storage and transportation owing to less volatile and non-toxic nature, as compared to various other chemical compounds. Vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane is extensively used in adhesives, encapsulants, and as a raw material for products such as liquid silicon rubber (LSR), as a base polymer for addition-curing, and for room temperature vulcanizing two components (RT-2K).
Report Coverage and Deliverables
Properties of vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane such as high temperature resistance, its hydrophobic nature, and resistance to moisture makes it ideal for applications such as non-corrosive shielding against dirt and other contaminants, especially for electrical and electronic components. However, high cost of raw materials of vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane may hamper growth of the market to a certain extent.
Market Analysis by Vinyl Terminated Polydimethylsiloxane Type:
On the basis of type segmentation, the intermediate viscosity fluids segment accounted for highest revenue share in 2017, among all other type segments and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. The intermediate viscosity fluids segment is estimated witness highest CAGR of over 4.0%. This can be attributed to increasing adoption of intermediate vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane fluids in textile industries as durable fabric softeners, and growing application in automotive, electronics, and other end-use industries.
Market Analysis by Vinyl Terminated Polydimethylsiloxane Application:
Adhesives segment is projected to account for highest revenue share, among all other application segments in the global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market. The adhesives segment is expected to witness a CAGR of over 4% over the forecast period, owing to increasing use of vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane in various end-use applications such as electrical and electronics products, primarily due to its noncorrosive properties, besides others. Vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane is highly preferred for adhesives since these adhesives are highly elastic at low temperatures and exhibit very good temperature stability. Rising demand for vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane from various end-use industries such as construction, rubber, paint and coatings, plastics etc., is expected to boost demand for adhesives, which in-turn is projected to fuel growth of this segment over the forecast period.
Market Analysis by Vinyl Terminated Polydimethylsiloxane Region:
Revenue from the vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market in Asia Pacific is projected to expand at the highest CAGR of over 5% over the forecast period. The market in Asia Pacific accounted for highest revenue contribution to the global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market in 2017, and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Revenue contribution from the vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market in North America is expected to expand at the second-highest CAGR of X.X% over the forecast period.
Growth of vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane in the Asia Pacific market, is be attributed to rising demand for vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane products from emerging economies in countries such as China and India. Increasing adoption of vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane in the production of elastomers and coatings for various end-use applications are other factors expected to fuel growth of the Asia Pacific vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market over the forecast period In addition, presence of prominent manufacturers located in China including Wuhan Kemi-Works Chemical Co. Ltd., Zhejiang Sucon Silicone Co., Ltd., and Hangzhou Zhixin Chemical Co., Ltd. is further expected to fuel growth of the market in the region.
The market in North America accounted for second-highest revenue share in the global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market in 2017. This can be attributed to increasing use of vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane in various end-use industries as an additive for manufacturing of various products in the region. Increasing use of silicone oil as a lubricant, and use of vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane in the manufacture of elastomers are other factors expected to fuel growth of the North America vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market over the forecast period. The market in North America has a strong presence of manufacturers such as Gelest Inc., Dow Chemical Company, AB Specialty, and Milliken & Company, which is also expected to contribute to growth of the North America vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market.
The market in Europe is also expected to account for a significant share in the global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market in 2017. The growth can be attributed to increasing use of vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane-related materials for automotive, electrical, and electronics applications in countries in the region.
