Silane and Silicone market Overview:

The Silane and Silicone market accounted for revenue of $ 14,479.0 million in 2017 and is anticipated to generate revenue of $ 22,030.3 million in 2025. The market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 5.4% from 2018-2025. Silicone is an inert polymer that comprises silicon with oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, and other chemicals. The silicon-based monomeric chemical includes four substituents, and at least one carbonsilicon bond structure. Some of the common forms of silicones are resin, grease, oil, and rubber, which are used across automobile, medical, construction and electronics industries. On the contrary, silane is an organic compound containing a single or multiple siliconcarbon bonds. Silane is produced by reacting silica sand with magnesium and then adding hydrochloric acid. One of the primary applications of silane is to bond two compounds together.

Silane is increasingly adopted in paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, rubber & plastics, and fiber treatment activities. The growth of the overall silicones & silanes market is driven by rise in demand from end-use industries, such as electronics & semiconductor. They are preferred because of their temperature stability and outstanding insulation. Their ability to be adjusted or changed for resistivity requirements make them extremely flexible to utilize in applications such as automotive industry, chemical & process technology, medical, and others.


Unstable raw material prices such as silicon metal & methanol and high energy prices are anticipated to hinder the market growth during the forecast period. However, the global Silane and Silicone market is yet to explore its full potential. Automobile manufacturers are focusing on fuel efficiency and regulation compliances. The major aim of the automotive industry is to improve fuel efficiency simultaneously enhancing road safety. Due to stringent regulations compliances, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are utilizing silanes to reduce the rolling resistance and to enhance the traction on wet or slippery surfaces in automobile applications. The use of silanes-silica is also driving the use of green tires instead of traditional tires. This significantly improves the fuel efficiency by 5%, which is expected to offer future growth opportunities to the global Silane and Silicone market during the forecast period.

The global silicones & silanes market size is segmented based on type, end user, and region. Based on type, the market is bifurcated into Silane and Silicon. Silanes are further classified into coupling agent, cross-linking agent, and others. Similarly, silicones are further classified into elastomers, fluids, resins, gels, conformal coatings, and others. Based on end user, the Silane and Silicone market is classified into building & construction, transportation, electronics, medical, textiles & leather, and others.

Analyst Review

Silicones are high-performance specialty polymers that consist of siloxane, which is essentially a chain of alternating oxygen and silicon atoms combined with hydrogen and/or carbon. On the other hand, silane, also known as silicon hydride, is an organic compound, which comprises single or multiple silicon-carbon (Si-C) bonds. Silane is also known as a versatile silicon compound that is prominently known for coupling, cross-linking, and surface modification applications. The silane and silicone market have experienced significant growth in the recent years. As many manufacturers of silicone have shifted their units to developing countries owing to factors such as low transportation costs and easy availability of land. Moreover, increase in use of silicone as encapsulates for electronic components is anticipated to drive silicone market growth.

Rapid growth in the construction industry in the Middle East and Asia-Pacific and shift in focus from conventional energy sources to solar energy in Asia-Pacific are also some of the factors propelling the silane and silicone market during the forecast period.
