COVID-19 impact on global silicone fluids market

With the rise in cases of COVID-19, implementation of emergency protocols and shutdown of various operations and facilities have been observed during 2020. The outbreak of COVID-19 in Wuhan, China, has spread across the major APAC, European, and North American countries, affecting the market for silicone fluids since most of the global companies have their headquarters in these countries. This impact of COVID-19 had caused disruption in the supply chain, which had slowed down the market growth due to lack of raw materials and unavailability of workforce.

In 2020, the silicone fluids market was impacted to a very low extent by the COVID-19 pandemic with a nominal decline in CAGR. The market has been hampered owing to reduced raw material production, supply chain disruptions, and hampered trade movements during 2020. The end-use industries, such as building & construction, textiles and automotive & transportation, were affected by the pandemic.

Silicone fluids Market Dynamics

Driver: Superior properties of silicone fluids

Silicone fluids are very versatile products used in a wide range of industries. They have unique properties, such as UV stability, glossiness, transparency, radiation resistance, hydrophobicity, heat resistance, durability, dielectricity, adhesion, foam control, discharge safety, and flexibility, which enable them to be used in myriad forms and applications. Silicone fluids are particularly used for special applications or applications requiring resistance to extreme weather conditions. Silicone fluids can adapt to extreme fluctuations in temperature (from -76°F to 572°F) and have high stability against all forms of radiation, particularly UV, to resist outdoor exposure. Owing to its excellent electrical resistance, it is also used in the electrical & electronics industry.

Silicone fluid helps in enhancing the performance of automotive by providing outstanding resistance to oil and coolant, good heat resistance, and a low compression set. Hence, silicone fluids are used widely in the automotive industry. In recent years, auto manufacturers have been continuously focusing on increasing the safety requirements in vehicles and are developing solutions for the same. The systems in a vehicle are continuously upgraded with new technologies for achieving fuel economy, comfort (climate control and global positioning system), entertainment, among other benefits. Hence, silicone fluids are widely used in these systems. Their exceptional properties facilitate manufacturers in providing customized solutions to their clients for their specific applications.

Restraint: Stringent regulatory policies for silicone fluids

There are no restrictions on the use of most silicone fluid products. However, the use of a few silicone fluid products, especially in the personal care & beauty products and medical & healthcare industries, is regulated by certain regulatory authorities in some countries. For example, the UK Competent Authorities and the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) limit the use of two silicone fluid products: cyclosiloxanes D4 and D5, which are used in personal care & beauty industry. These substances are expected to be restricted to a concentration of 0.1% by weight in personal care products. Apart from the UK, their use is also restricted in Canada and the US.

All these regulations and their approval processes are time-consuming, which, therefore, restrain the growth of the silicone fluids market in these industries.

Opportunity: High potential in healthcare applications

Silicone fluids possess many superior properties, which make it suitable for use in healthcare applications. New studies and research have shown that silicone fluid can be used efficiently in retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy, among other healthcare applications. Owing to the non-toxic nature of silicone fluids, it is used in gastrointestinal defoaming aerosol medicines. Silicone fluid in ointment increases the ability of drugs to penetrate the skin, thus improving efficacy. Silicone fluid-based creams are used in treating burns, dermatitis, among other purposes. The demand for healthcare products from the growing aging population globally is increasing. Healthcare remains a strong prospect for growth of the silicone fluids market, as studies and research are being continuously conducted to invent more applications of silicone fluid in this segment.

Challenge: Fluctuating raw material prices

The key challenge in the global silicone fluids market is a continuous fluctuation of raw material and energy prices. The sharp increase in prices of raw materials, such as methyl chloride and silicon metal, from 2016 to 2018 indirectly reduces the profit margins of silicone producers. This subsequently leads to an increase in the price of the overall silicone products, for instance, silicone fluid. The rising raw material costs are expected to have a negative impact on the global silicone fluids market. Silicone fluid producers continuously face high and volatile feedstock costs and are expected to pass on the price rise to end users. For example, the major players in the silicone fluids market, such as Wacker and Elkem, recently increased the prices of their silicone fluid products to accommodate the high raw material and energy prices. Hence, continuously fluctuating raw materials and energy prices have become a major challenge for producers in the silicone fluid industry.

Modified silicone fluids is widely used.

Based on type, the modified segment is projected to be the largest segment in the silicone fluids market. Silicone fluids with organic groups introduced at the ends and side chains are called modified silicone fluids. This modification of dimethyl polysiloxane adds properties, such as compatibility or reactivity with organic substances, water-solubility, emulsifying properties, water repellency, paintability, anti-static properties, softening properties, and lubricity. Modified silicone fluids are used in various applications, as ingredients in cosmetics, resin modifiers, textile treatment agents, additives for waxes, water repellents for construction applications, and release agents. They are also used in various industries to improve the function of existing polymeric materials and develop new materials. Modified silicone fluids are of two types- reactive and non-reactive.

Significant increase in the demand for silicone fluids in personal care & beauty

By end-use industry, personal care & beauty is projected to be the largest segment in the silicone fluids market. The personal care & beauty end-use industry uses silicone fluids on a large scale due to their versatility and unique properties. Silicone fluids are used in personal care products, such as cosmetics, soaps, shampoo, deodorant, face cream, and makeup. They offer several functional benefits, including a rheological stable base with delivery benefits and good compatibility with other solvents, actives, and inert ingredients in the formula. They spread evenly and provide a silky and cushioning feel to the skin. They are also used in the manufacturing of home care products, such as furniture polish, detergents, toiletries, insecticides, fragrances, and others. The high growth rate is attributed to the increase in consumption of personal care and home care products owing to the increase in total disposable incomes of consumers in emerging economies.

APAC region to lead the global silicone fluids market by 2026.

APAC accounted for the largest market share of about 46.0%, in terms of value in 2020. The growing population and rapid urbanization are among the key factors propelling industry expansion in this region. High domestic demand, along with the easy availability of raw materials and low-cost labor, makes APAC a lucrative market for manufacturers that are focusing on this region to gain market share and increase profitability. Manufacturers of silicone fluids are targeting this country due to the advantages of setting up production facilities, the low cost of production, and the ability to better serve local emerging markets.
