The global silanes market is projected to reach USD 1.83 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2016 to 2021. Silanes are used as coupling agents, adhesion promoters, dispersing agents, crosslinking agents, blocking agents, reinforcements in fiberglass, and mineral fillers in rubber & plastics. The growth of these applications is driving the silanes market globally.

Silanes are used in varied applications, such as rubber & plastics, fiber treatment, adhesives & sealants, and paints & coatings. In 2015, the rubber & plastics application segment accounted for the largest share of the global silanes market; this application segment is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. Silanes offer various advantages in both primary and secondary rubber and plastics markets. The tire industry is focusing on developing fuel-efficient technologies and lowering CO2 emissions. Green tires are fuel-efficient and are preferred by the automotive industry. The growing demand for these tires makes rubber & plastics the fastest-growing application segment of silanes.

Based on type, the mono/chloro silane segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021. Mono/chloro silanes are primarily used in electrical & electronics, integrated circuits, photovoltaics, and flat panel displays. These are also used as protecting agents for intermediates in pharmaceutical syntheses and synthesis of silanes and siloxanes. The growth of electronics & electrical and flat panel displays industries and increasing focus on solar as a power source in developing countries will play a major role in driving the global mono/chloro silane market.

Silanes Market

Growth in the rubber & plastics industries has increased the demand for silanes. In 2015, the Asia-Pacific region accounted for the largest share of the global silanes market. China is expected to account for the largest share of the Asia-Pacific silanes market till 2021, whereas, this market in India is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period globally.

Low growth in European economy and growing demand for paper packaging and other environment-friendly packaging materials are the factors acting as restraints to the growth of the silanes market.

Companies have adopted strategies such as new product developments, expansions, and agreements to enhance their market share and widen their distribution network in the global silanes market. These companies engage in intensive research & development activities to innovate and develop products that can open new avenues of applications. For the silanes market, expansion was the key strategy adopted by major players to enhance their growth between 2012 and 2016. For instance, Evonik’s expanded the production facilities of specialty silicone in China and Germany to serve various end-use industries, such as construction, coating, furniture, and textile. This expansion will help the company meet the rising demand for silanes in Asia and Europe.

Similarly, Shin-Etsu Chemical Co. Ltd expanded the production capacity of silicon polymer by 40% from 54,000 tons to 74,000 tons (scheduled to be completed by 2017). With the increased production capacity, the company can cater the increasing demand for silane products in Asia-Pacific. The emerging markets of silanes owing to the wide range of applications will help the company gain profitability. The company plans to create a competitive advantage through the strategy of R&D.
