The global silicone market size is expected to grow from USD 16.7 million in 2021 to USD 23.4 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 7.0% during the forecast period. The major factors driving the silicone industry include the superior properties of the material and its high demand in different end-use industries, such as building & construction, personal care & consumer products, transportation, and electronics.Further, the booming demand from the medical & healthcare industry owing to the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to drive the market.
Silicone has good electrical insulation, thermal conductivity, ability to withstand high and low temperature, and flame retardance owing to which it is gaining traction in several industrial application. Silicone is used in electronics goods, semiconductor applications, highly sensitive circuits, electronics components, ignition wire, refrigerators’ wire and heater wires, among others. These materials have good insulation properties, which help in protecting electrical circuits in various electronic components such as computers, televisions, aircraft video displays from dust, dirt, and heat.
Thus, with the growth in demand for electronics, semiconductors, and consumer goods across the globe, the demand for silicone is expected to increase substantially over the forecast period.
