Silicone Fluids Market Set to Surge: Anticipated to Reach US$ 9.7 Billion by 2032

Silicone Fluid Market

Silicones, also known as polydiorganosiloxanes, are of great commercial use as it has relatively high thermal stability and lubricating properties. Silicone fluids have siloxane backbones and organo-functional groups, which are thermally stable. This chemical composition improves silicone fluid’s compatibility with organic resigns.  Silicone fluids have high resistance to temperature and high thermo oxidative resistance. Silicone fluids are tasteless, odourless and transparent liquids. Silicone fluids are also stable than organic polymers in terms of electromagnetic properties and UV, alpha, beta and gamma radiations.

Global silicone fluids demand is anticipated to be valued at US$ 5.4 Billion in 2022, forecast to grow at a CAGR of 6.03% to be valued at US$ 9.7 Billion from 2022 to 2032.

Silicone fluids are used for hydrophobic treatment of mineral wool and glass. Silicone fluids can also be modified due to its chemical functionalization. The two common ways in which silicone fluids are modified are either attaching long alkyl chains or functionalizing silicone fluids with organic polymers.

Silicone Fluid Market: Drivers & Restraints

Increase in demand of end-user industries such as textile, cosmetics, toiletries, pharmaceutical etc. are expected to drive the global silicone fluid market. In addition, rise in construction activities, increasing investment across end user industries, its excellent heat resistant property, thermal stability and solubility are expected to further drive the demand for silicone fluid market by 2025 end. Surface tension of silicone fluids is low, thus making them more preferable for the applications where greater spreading power and surface activity is required. Silicone fluids have very little viscosity change over a wide range of temperature and have almost no adverse effect on metals and other materials, hence have an increasing demand over wide range of applications.
