Siloxane Copolymer Lubricants Market Analysis :

Copolymerization process enables various siloxane monomers, phenyl, and fluoro groups with distinct characteristics to be copolymerized into a single product. The new molecule or product has properties of both siloxane monomers included in the copolymer. Silioxane copolymer lubricants have properties such as higher viscosity index, less weight loss, higher oxidation temperature, and excellent thermal performance over other synthetic lubricants. Polydimethylsiloxane is most commonly used in lubricants, owing to which it has wear resistance. In addition, phenyl silioxane-based lubricant offers additional oxidative and thermal resistance. 

COVID-19 scenario analysis:

  • The chemical business has been affected by the lockdown as oil prices fell due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Automotive sales have decreased considerably, which has impacted the automobile manufacturing and resulted in decreased demand for lubricant products.
  • The demand & supply market has been impacted by COVID-19, owing to decreased demand from end-use industries such as automotive.
  • In Asia-Pacific, manufacturing operations were halted in China, owing to the outbreak of COVID-19, which not only decreased the demand for lubricant products but also disrupted the value chain of the market.
  • Europe being one of worst impacted regions by COVID-19 resulted in halting of operations of numerous end-use industries such as automotive, oil & gas, and others.

Top impacting factors: Market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis

Siloxane copolymer lubricants have numerous properties, such as compatibility, with many plastics and elastomers, stability at extreme temperature, high corrosion resistance, formulation compatibility with different thickener systems, and others. In addition, they also provide high temperature lubricity.

Siloxane copolymer lubricants are used in several applications such as brake caliper, plastic gears, circuit breakers, brake compressor, chemical mixers & pumps, overrunning clutch, and others. Moreover, rise in demand for lightweight vehicles and other huge commercial vehicles is expected to surge the demand for maintenance of different vehicle parts. This is expected to propel the siloxane copolymer lubricants market. 

Furthermore, rise in demand for various types of vehicles, for example, traveler vehicles and light & substantial business vehicles across the globe surges the demand for siloxane copolymer greases. Furthermore, siloxane copolymer lubricants are cost effective compared to conventional lubricants, for example, PFPE (perfluoropolyether) in certain applications.

Availability of an alternative is one of the factors expected to hamper the growth of the market during the analysis period. For instance, elective lubricant, such as perfluoropolyether (PTFE), is expected to reduce the demand for siloxane copolymer lubricants. 

Growth and expansion of the market 

Europe and North America are the major regions for the silioxane copolymers lubricants market, owing to the presence of huge consumer base such as chemical industries, automotive, oil & gas, and others. 

Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest growth rate, owing to the fastest growing automotive industry, metal processing industries, and others. India and China are expected to be one of the major contributors to the market, owing to rise in automotive production. China has one of the largest metal processing sectors, which makes it a favorable destination for export and production of silioxane copolymer lubricants.

Siloxane copolymer greases are significantly utilized in metal preparing and car businesses. China has one of the biggest metal handling enterprises alongside the biggest utilization of car and other hardware. This factor is predicted to help the siloxane copolymer lubricants advertise in Asia-Pacific during the forecast time frame.
