Silicones in construction industry are regarded as a large class of synthetic materials that consists of silicone sealants, adhesives, and coatings that help make buildings durable, comfortable, and energy-efficient. Silicones as a building material are extremely durable and can resist decay caused by severe weather conditions, moisture, or sunlight. Silicones also enable innovative architecture and engineering feats, such as dramatic glass facades or curved and suspended structures. Silicone coatings help paints for better adherence to surfaces, disperse color pigments, and resist damages from weather and staining. Moreover, sealants also add flexibility to building structures, allowing materials to absorb stress and movement caused by wind or earthquakes. In addition, silicone adhesives are deployed for preventing humidity and hot and cold air from coming inside the buildings through joints and cracks. However, the rise in cost associated with silicone production owing to massive expenditure in vulcanization and property improvement is expected to have an adverse impact on the industry.
At present, the global silicone in construction industry market witnesses vivid opportunities due to rapid increase development in construction industry in Asia-Pacific and LAMEA. Moreover, silicone fluids are widely utilized in construction industry as it is capable to provide excellent thermos-oxidative resistance and performing operations within a range of 60C to +300C. These fluids exhibit water solubility, emulsifying properties, water repellency, paint ability, anti-static properties, softening properties, and lubricity properties on building surfaces. In addition, silicone fluids are added to polyurethane to help give the final foam better insulation value and also higher foam yield or coverage for lower installation costs. Thus, silicone fluids are expected to witness highest growth during the forecast period.
Silicone elastomers segment accounted for nearly half share, in terms of volume, in 2015. In response to the rise in infrastructure developments silicones in construction industry currently witness high demand across the globe. Furthermore, increase in demand for silicone elastomers in construction industry act as a prominent factor responsible for market growth.
