Request Sample Report:

Silicone is second ordinary element found in Earth's crust and exists in oxidized form due to compounds such as silicates and silicone dioxide. Silicone is considered as significant inorganic component. Though silicone is originated from Earth's crust it is rare, hence produced artificially. Silicone has large number of properties like high binding capacity, heat, radiation and water resistance, low intermolecular force, electrical and thermal conductivity, resistance to solvents and oil, gas permeability, tear and tensile strength, transparency and coloring properties.

Growing demand for silicone from building and construction sector drives the silicone market. Different manufacturing practices are done for production of silicone due to huge availability of resources. Expanding end user applications owing to widespread properties is expected to accelerate the growth of market. Heat, water and radiation are the major driving properties for the silicone market. However, silicone market growth is restricted owing to escalating price of methyl chloride and silicone which are raw material for production of silicone. Research and development for new product development and increasing demand from promising economies is estimated to propel market growth over the years to come.
