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 value of segments with respect to the five key regions (along with the countries), namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America
  • To strategically analyze the market segments with respect to the end-use industries
  • 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 of the market
  • To track and analyze competitive developments, such as mergers, partnerships & investments, new product developments, and expansions in the silicone gel market
  • To strategically profile key players and their core competencies in the market

In the secondary research process, various sources have been referred to identify and collect information for this study. The secondary sources include annual reports, press releases, and investor presentations of companies, white papers & certified publications, Factiva, Bloomberg, Businessweek, Food & Drug Association (FDA) ingredients 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 silicone gel market size, in terms of value, based on end-use industry and region. The top-down approach has been implemented to validate the market size in terms of value. Through the data triangulation procedure and validation of data via primary interviews, the exact values of the overall parent market size and individual market sizes have been determined and confirmed in the study.

The global silicone gel market, in terms of value, is projected to reach USD 1.96 Billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 6.9%, from 2016 to 2026. High-growth of the electrical & electronics industry and increase in in demand of silicone gel for new applications such as comfort pads, protective skin coverings, and sealing applications in the medical, footwear, aerospace & defense, agriculture, and pharmaceutical industries are the key reasons driving the growth of the global silicone gel market.

The global silicone gel market is dominated by the electrical & electronics industry. This end-use industry is projected to lead the silicone gel market, in terms of value and volume, from 2016 to 2026. This is due to the key properties of silicone gels such as hydrophobicity, high dielectric breakdown, and resistance to high and low temperatures, which enable these gels to be used in critical and harsh environments in the electrical & electronics industry. However, the high manufacturing cost of the silicone gel, as compared to its substitutes, is restricting their use to certain specific applications. This is hampering the growth of the market. The growing demand from the medical industry is a key opportunity for companies in this market. This is due to the increasing aging population, worldwide, along with increasing awareness about health concerns which drives the medical applications of silicone gel.

Asia-Pacific is largest and the fastest-growing regional silicone gel market. There is an increase in the demand for silicone gel applications, especially in the emerging markets of Asia-Pacific. This demand is attributed to growth of end-use industries, competitive manufacturing costs, and high economic growth rate in the region. In addition, the rising usage in the photovoltaic sector, coupled with the demand for small, low-cost, and advanced electronics component in leading Asia-Pacific countries such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea is fuelling the demand for silicone gel in this region. These factors are attracting companies to adopt investment and expansion strategies in this region.

Silicone Gel Market

North America is the second-largest market for silicone gels. The market in this region is highly diversified and the manufacturers are strongly focusing on development of new products and advanced technology to cater the demand of its end users. The leading companies operating in the North American silicone gel market are Dow Corning (U.S.), NuSil Technology LLC (U.S.), and Momentive Performance Materials Inc. (U.S.). These companies are undertaking several strategic developments including new product launches, expansions, mergers, and partnerships to strengthen their competitiveness in the highly potential market of North America.

Some of the key market players in the silicone gel market are Dow Corning (U.S.), Wacker Chemie AG (Germany), Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd (Japan), and Bluestar Silicones (France). New product launch and expansion are among the key strategies adopted by these major market players. For instance, in October, 2016, Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd. expanded its silicone business by establishing a plant in Japan, and at the same time, expanding its Technical Center in Japan that performs technical services for silicone rubber molding and processing.
