By type, the elastomers segment is estimated to lead the silicone market in 2020, in terms of value & volume.

The silicone market has been segmented based on type into elastomers, fluids, resins, and gels & other products. Among these types, the elastomers segment accounted for the largest share of the market in 2020 and is likely to witness significant growth during the forecast period. The market growth in this segment is attributed to its increasing use in various products, including voltage line insulators, cooking, baking, and food storage products; undergarments, sportswear, and footwear; electronics; medical devices, and implants; and in household gaskets and O-rings. The physiological inertness of silicone elastomers makes them suitable for use in the healthcare industry, especially for blood transfusions and in artificial heart valves and various prosthetic devices.

By end-use industry, the industrial process segment is estimated to lead the silicone market in2020, in terms of value & volume.

The industrial process is the largest end-use industry for silicone in 2020 in terms of value and volume. Silicones are extensively used in numerous industrial processes. In industrial processes, they are widely used in a plethora of applications such as lubricants, anti-foaming agents in offshore drilling and paper production, industrial coatings, and paint additives. Silicones have become highly popular due to their high-performance characteristics and are replacing other conventional materials in several industrial applications.

The APAC region is projected to account for the largest share in the silicone market during the forecast period.

The APAC region is projected to lead the silicone market in terms of both value and volume from 2021 to 2026. The growth in this region can be attributed to the rapidly increasing demand for silicone from the end-use industries, especially electronics, building & construction, personal care & consumer products, and transportation.  Moreover, several silicone manufacturers, such as Wacker Chemie AG (Germany) and Shin-Etsu Chemical Co. Ltd., (Japan) are setting up or expanding their manufacturing facilities in this region to leverage low manufacturing and labor costs and high demand from end-use industries, thereby boosting the demand for silicone in the region.

The Dow Chemical Company (US), Wacker Chemie AG (Germany), Shin-Etsu Chemical Co. Ltd. (Japan), Elkem ASA (Norway), Momentive (US), KCC Corporation (South Korea), Evonik Industries AG (Germany), Gelest Inc. (US), and Innospec Inc. (US), are the leading silicone manufacturers, globally.
