The silicone market is driven by factors such as rapid infrastructure development, growing adoption of medical implants, and superior properties namely less CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions from silicone products. Silicones bond with most materials, from concrete, glass, granite, and marble to aluminum, steel, and plastics. These are the best choice for various infrastructure activities owing to their advantages such as high durability and resistance to decay caused to other materials through rough weather conditions, moisture, or sunlight. Silicones are widely accepted as safe materials for human body and are also approved by FDA after extensive research to be used as a fixture or implant in different parts of the body. They are also utilized in many other medical treatments to facilitate healing at a faster rate, enhance the appearance of existing scars, and decrease discomfort. The factors that restrain the market growth include availability and volatile cost of raw materials.

Silicones market is segmented into different types such as elastomers, fluids, resins and gels. The elastomer segment accounted for more than one-third of the world silicone market, both in terms of volume and revenue in 2015, owing to its unique ability to retain its mechanical properties over a wide temperature range. Hence, silicone elastomers are mostly applicable in construction, where they are used as structural glazing sealant. Silicone fluids is the second largest segment and is mostly used in cosmetics, paints & coatings, and healthcare industries.

The demand for silicones from electronics end user segment is projected to increase at a CAGR of 6.5%, owing to increase in the global electronics device & component production, especially in China & other emerging countries. The demand in medical end user segment is expected to show considerable growth due to its growing usage in implant, dental bridges, medical device, medical tubing, and scar gel.
