Silicone Potting Compounds Market Outlook - 2027

The global silicone potting compounds market size was valued at $931.2 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $1,247.2 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 4.0% from 2020 to 2027.

Potting is the process of filling an electronics assembly or component with solid compounds to protect them from the surrounding environment. Potting compounds are widely used to insulate electronic devices and protect them from moisture. In addition, these compounds are remarkable flame retardants with superior shock resistance. Potting process can be performed either manually or by using automated metermix dispense (MMD) equipment. The widely used potting materials include silicone, epoxy, polyurethane, and others. Silicone polymers have a wide operating temperature range; exhibit excellent electrical properties; hardness range; good chemical, humidity, & water resistance; and offers ease-of-use. These compounds have applications across various sectors, such as electrical & electronics, aerospace, industrial, automotive, energy & power, marine, and solar power industries.

Silicone-Potting-Compounds-Market,-2020-2027

The global potting compounds market is driven by growth in the consumer electronics sector in the near future. Thermally conductive potting compounds offer an effective pathway to dissipate the heat from a heat-generating source to a metal enclosure. The additional benefits of these products are excellent electrical insulation, lower shrinkage, thermal shock resistance, and thermal expansion. Furthermore, fast curing time for UV cured silicone potting compounds coupled with high electrical insulation properties and excellent bond strength make it widely applicable for potting of electronic devices. Some of the quick UV curable silicon compounds, such as NOVAGARD Silicones UV cured, can be cured in seconds with lower energy consumption. However, availability of low-cost alternatives such as epoxy resin, polyurethanes may negatively impact the silicone potting compounds market growth. Nonetheless, proliferating demand for electric vehicles is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for silicone potting compounds market. The wide operating temperature range, shock absorption, and moisture resistance make silicon potting widely accepted in manufacturing of electric vehicle.

The global silicone potting compounds market is segmented on the basis of curing technique, application, end user, and region. On the basis of curing technique, the market is classified into UV curing, thermal curing, and room temperature curing. The application areas of this industry are surface mount packages, beam bonded components, memory devices & microprocessors, capacitors, transformers, cable joints, industrial magnets, solenoids, and others. Based on the end user, the market is classified into electronics, aerospace, automotive, industrial, and others. Based on region, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

KGaA, Dow Silicon Corporation, Novagard Solutions, LORD Corporation, ELANTAS GmbH, Master Bond Inc., MG Chemicals, and Dymax Corporation. These players have adopted product launch, acquisition, and business expansion as their key strategies to increase their silicone potting compounds market shares.

COVID-19 Scenario Analysis:

Transportation restrictions imposed because of COVID-19 outbreak lead to reduced factory output, and disturbed supply chains reduced significant percentage from global economic growth; thus, negatively affecting the market growth.

Extended lockdown slowed down the production of silicon potting products, due to limited resources and longer lead time to replenish raw materials.

In addition, large dependency on Chinese exports for various silicon metals will further influence the market growth. For instance, China is the highest exporter of silicon and silica across the globe, and limited production in China increased the supply demand gap and material price.

Furthermore, due to social distancing norms during COVID-19, manufacturing firms are working with limited workforce; thus, negatively impacting the production process.

However, implementation of IOT and automation may reduce the need of labors wherever possible and increase operational efficiency. The automated packaging involving smart robots can reduce the workers on shop floors; thus, maintaining social distancing norms
