The global liquid silicone rubber (LSR) market is projected to reach USD 3.82 Billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 8.3% from 2016 to 2026.

In this study, the years considered to estimate the market size of LSR are: 

  • Base Year – 2015
  • Estimated Year – 2016
  • Projected Years – 2021 and 2026
  • Forecast Periods – 2016-2021 (midterm) and 2016-2026 (long term)

2015 has been considered the base year for company profiles. Whenever information was unavailable for the base year, the prior year has been considered.

Objectives of the Study

  • To forecast the market sizes in terms of values of segments with respect to the five key regions (along with the countries) which are, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America
  • To strategically analyze the market segments with respect to the grade, technology, and application.
  • To provide detailed information regarding the key factors influencing the growth of the market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges)
  • To analyze the opportunities in the market for stakeholders and draw the competitive landscape for market leaders
  • To track and analyze competitive developments such as, collaborations, partnerships, and joint ventures, mergers & acquisitions, new product developments, and investments & expansions in the LSR market
  • To strategically profile key players and their core competencies in the market

In the secondary research process, various sources have been referred to for the identification and collection of information for this study. These secondary sources include annual reports, press releases, and investor presentations of companies, white papers & certified publications, Factiva, Bloomberg, Businessweek, Food & Drug Association (FDA) ingredient certifications, and articles from recognized authors. In the primary research process, sources from both, the supply and demand sides have been interviewed to obtain qualitative and quantitative information. The bottom-up approach has been used to estimate the LSR market size, in terms of value, on the basis of the grade, application, and region. The top-down approach has been implemented to validate the market size, in terms of value. Through the data triangulation procedure, and the validation of data from the primary interviews, the exact values of the overall parent market size and individual market sizes have been determined and confirmed in the study.

The figure below provides a break-up of the primaries.

LSRs follow a chain of independent activities that add greater value to the final product. The value chain covers all stages, beginning from the sourcing of raw materials to the delivery of the finished product, which is used in various LSR application areas. Raw material is the first node of the value chain of the LSR market. Raw material for LSR manufacturing includes silicon oxide, sand, and methyl chloride. The next node comprises of the LSR manufacturers including, Dow Corning (U.S.), Wacker Chemie AG (Germany), Shin-Etsu (Japan), Bluestar Silicones (France), and Momentive Performance Materials (U.S.). This LSR undergoes various tests and quality checks, depending upon the grade and the industry applications. The third node of the value chain comprises the Liquid Injection Molding System (LIMS) processors and fabricators. Companies such as, Simtec Silicone Parts, LLC (U.S.) and Stockwell Elastomerics Inc. (U.S.) process the LSR, using the Liquid Injection Molding System (LIMS) technology and manufacture various components. The last node comprises of the various applications of LSRs.

The global Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) market, in terms of value, is projected to reach USD 3.82 Billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 8.3%, from 2016 to 2026. High-growth in the electrical & electronics and medical applications, and rapid growth in the demand for medical grade LSRs are the key factors driving the global LSR market. The use of medical grade LSR reduces the risk of bacterial infections and is hence used in skin medications to aid absorption and functionality. In the electrical & electronics application, they are widely used in electrical insulation and electrical potting. Since LSRs are chemically inert and extreme temperature resistant, they are used in the manufacture of LED lights.
