The market for Silanes is approximated to be USD 2.9 billion in 2022, and it is projected to reach USD 3.9 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 6.2%. Silanes, also known as silicon hydrides, are compounds formed by covalent bonds between hydrogen and silica. Silanes are manufactured by reacting magnesium silicide with acids or by reducing silicon chlorides with lithium aluminum hydride. Silanes mainly function as coupling agents and surface modifiers. They are available in two types: functional and non-functional groups. The ability of functional silanes to react with inorganic and organic materials and that of non-functional with inorganic materials makes them useful in applications such as crosslinking agents, adhesion promoters, surface modifiers, coupling agents, and dispersing agents. Silanes act as an important part of the rubber & plastics sector, especially the tire industry. The major applications of silanes also include fiber treatment, adhesives & sealants, and paints & coatings.
