Silicone Elastomers Market – Size Application Industry 2018 | Analysis, Market Share, Regional Outlook, Competitive Strategies & Forecast by 2023

“Silicone Elastomers Market has been segmented by Type, Application and Region”
Global Silicone Elastomers Market: Information by Type (High Temperature Vulcanized [HTV], Liquid Silicone Rubber [LSR], Room Temperature Vulcanized [RTV]), Application (Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Healthcare, and Others), and Region—Forecast till 2023

Silicone Elastomers (polysiloxane), also known as vulcanized silicone-based polymers, can be found in various forms such as solids, open cell foams, closed cell sponges, thermally conductive, and electrically conductive. The superior properties of Silicone Elastomers such as extreme temperature resistance, excellent environmental resistance, and low compression set make them suitable for application in various end-use industries such as transportation, electrical and electronics, and healthcare. By type, the Silicone Elastomers Market has been categorized as high temperature vulcanized, liquid silicone rubber, room temperature vulcanized, and others. The high temperature vulcanized Silicone Elastomers segment accounted for the largest market share in 2017 on account of the excellent mechanical and chemical properties of the product. 

The growth of the Global Silicone Elastomers Market is expected to be driven by the rapidly expanding automotive industry across the globe. The product is being increasingly used in automobiles in gaskets, hoses, connector seals, fuel system valves, diaphragms, and others. Increasing automobile production, especially in developing economies such as China, India, and Thailand, is fuelling product demand. Furthermore, an increasing middle-class population coupled with rising disposable income has led to a growing number of car owners in developing markets, which, in turn, is expected to boost product demand during the forecast period. 

Product consumption is growing in the electronics industry due to its increasing use in LEDs, gaskets, rollers, and other consumer electronics. The growing electrical and electronics industry, with the surging demand for consumer electronics such as mobiles phones, TVs, home appliances, and wearable electronic devices, is expected to result in lucrative opportunities for players in the Silicone Elastomers Market during the review period.

Silicone Elastomers also find application in the healthcare industry in medical tubing, surgical devices, catheters, sterilization mats, and medical equipment keypads due to their high physiological inertness. The growing healthcare industry in both developed and developing nations with an increase in healthcare spending as a result of rising health awareness is likely to fuel product demand. 

However, the poor abrasion and oil and petroleum resistance properties of Silicone Elastomers limit their use which is likely to hamper market growth.
