Polydimethylsiloxane Market

Polydimethylsiloxane to Witness Positive Growth, Demand Soaring on back of Adhesive & Sealants Industry

Polydimethylsiloxane is predominantly used in the production of adhesive, sealants, and coating materials. Also, cost efficient and environment friendly properties of polydimethyldiloxane makes it an ideal polymer based siloxane material.

These properties are highly explored in the manufacturing of adhesive, sealants, and coating formulations which is further used in building & construction, and the automotive industry.

Global construction industry is flourishing on back of rapid development and investments in infrastructure, especially within the commercial sector. Thus, growing demand for industry-specific adhesive & sealant and coatings is likely to propel the growth of polydimethylsiloxane market.

On this backdrop, polydimethyldiloxane is expected to register a CAGR of ~4.2% during the forecast period.

Niche Applications to Reap Potential Opportunities for Polydimethylsiloxane Market

Amid the diverse end-use applications, use of polydimethylsiloxane is highly witnessed in personal care and cosmetics industry. Antifoaming, skin protection and conditioning properties of polydimethylsiloxane make it a suitable polymer based silicone to be used in hair care, skin care and cosmetic application.

Polydimethylsiloxane is known to form a hydrating barrier in the skin and reduce fine lines. Hence, it is widely used in skin care products such as cleansers, creams and lotions, anti-aging products, and hair care products such as shampoos and conditioners.

Tremendous growth has been witnessed in personal care & cosmetics industry which is likely to boost the consumption of polydimethylsiloxane market.

Moreover, polymethylsiloxane finds numerous applications in the healthcare industry due to its non-toxic and non-flammable properties. It is used in medical and research laboratory rubber products such as sanitary gaskets. Thus, niche applications of polymethylsiloxane are likely to add significant value to the polymethylsiloxane market globally.

Manufacturers Focusing on High Growth Regions

Key players involved in Polydimethylsiloxane manufacturing, such as Wacker Chemie AG, Elkem ASA or Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd. are shifting their attention towards high growth potential markets, such as Asia, Latin America and Middle East. Prominent markets, such as North America and Europe, are on their way to reach a mature stage and thus, will provide scope of growth for the markets such as China and India.
