The global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market report, offers in-depth insights, revenue details, and other vital information regarding the global Vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market, and the various trends, drivers, restraints, opportunities, and threats in the target market till 2026. The report offers insightful and detailed information regarding the various key players operating in the global Vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market, their financials, supply chain trends, technological innovations, key developments, apart from future strategies, acquisitions & mergers, and market footprint. The global Vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market report has been segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. The global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market was valued at US$ 921.4 Mn in 2016 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.7% over the forecast period.
Vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane is a colourless, clear liquid, with a molecular weight of about 25,000. It is employed in addition cure systems, particularly in 2-part addition cure silicone elastomers. This chemical compound is highly preferred in various industries, owing to its properties such as low volatility; dirt, water, and heat resistance.
Wide application of vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane in industries including electronics and electrical, construction, paints and coatings, and others, due to its less volatile and non-toxic nature, and its superior adhesive properties is expected to boost growth of the global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market. Vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane is also a key raw material used for making silicone rubber. Widening applications of silicone rubber in automotive, healthcare, and apparels industries, due to its tensile strength, elasticity, enhanced tear strength, good thermal conductivity, and excellent resistance to high temperatures is expected to indirectly drive growth of the global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market over the forecast period. In addition, vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane is a non-toxic compound, which makes it easy to store, as well as, transport, which is further expected to enhance demand of the target market.
However, high cost of raw materials such as silicon, and tetramethyldivinylsiloxane, results in high price of end product, and its moderately harmful effect on humans are factors expected to hamper growth of the global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market over the forecast period.
On basis of application, adhesives segment is expected to account for majority share of the global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market, owing to high adoption of room temperature vulcanizing two components (RTV-2) in automotive, electrical & electronic units, power units, LED lighting modules, and communication modules. Room temperature vulcanizing two components are largely preferred for insulation purpose, since these are highly pourable, and spreadable compounds, that retain flexibility even at high temperatures.
The global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market is segmented on the type, application, and region. On the basis of region, the target market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.
Asia Pacific dominates the global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market, owing to presence of prominent players in the region, particularly in China and demand from end-use industries including electronics and automotive. North America accounted for second-largest share in terms of revenue, due to increasing demand for vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane to manufacture elastomers and coatings to support various end-use industries.
