The global silicone fabrics market was valued at $3.9 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $5.8 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2021 to 2030.

Silicone fabrics is tough, thin, and dimensionally stable yet flexible. It is long lasting and provides consistent & reliable performance. It has high tensile and tear strength, and could be thermally weldable. These properties have increased their demand in a wide range of applications such as industrial, consumers, automotive, aerospace, and construction.

The global demand for silicone fabrics is primarily driven by stringent government regulations regarding passenger safety in automobiles, growth of manufacturing industries, increasing demand for protective clothing, and growing adoption of silicon fabrics in upholstery and furniture industry. Silicone coating offers numerous advantages compared to uncoated fabrics in strength, air porosity, deployment, and lifespan. These advantages have encouraged airbag manufacturers and vehicle OEMs to switch from uncoated fabric to silicone-coated fabric to manufacture airbags. Airbags create heat during deployment that can increase the risk of occupants getting burnt. Adding a silicone coating to the airbag can help dissipate/contain this heat without the airbag ripping or tearing during deployment. Airbags treated with a silicone coating also allow quick deflation once the peak inflation pressure is reached, along with added benefits such as thermal resistance and airbag protection compared to alternatives such as neoprene coating. Additionally, the excellent compatibility of silicone with widely used airbag fabrics, such as nylon, allows it to form a protective layer against moisture and remain chemically inert. These advantages are expected to fuel the demand for automotive airbags made from silicone-coated fabric. Thus, safety regulations coupled with increasing installation rate and growing demand for frontal, curtain/side, and knee airbags is expected to propel the silicone fabrics market in automotive airbags application in the coming years.

However, the availability of low-cost substitutes is expected to hamper the silicone fabrics market growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, growing penetration of silicone fabrics in the medical and healthcare sector is expected to provide growth opportunities for the silicone fabrics market during the forecast period.

Global Silicone Fabrics Market, By Region

Asia-Pacific accounted for a major market share in 2020, owing to demand from the manufacturing, automotive, and fabrication industries. The APAC silicone fabrics market has been witnessing consistent growth due to increasing automotive as well as airbag production in the region, growth of the manufacturing sector, and double-digit growth of healthcare and medical sector. Attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic, the economic growth of several countries, such as India, ASEAN, and other countries, has been declining, owing to disruption of the supply chain, declining demand for industrial product, suspension of manufacturing facilities, and declining oil & gas prices. The demand for silicone fabrics is expected to decrease in several end-use industries in 2020.

COVID-19 analysis:

Attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand from the industrial sector declined sharply in 2020. This impact was further intensified with the declining oil & gas prices and the massive gap between supply and demand. Due to economic losses, several production activities were suspended until the recovery of the economy. This decline in the manufacturing industry across the globe, in turn, resulted in a decline in the demand for silicone fabrics.
