Silicones are the polymers consisting of synthetic compounds with repeating units of siloxane. Siloxane is a chain of alternating silicon and oxygen atoms with carbon and hydrogen bonds. Silicone offers superior properties such as; high binding capacity, radiation &water resistance, tear & tensile strength, transparency and coloring properties. Silicone rubber, silicone caulk, silicone oil, silicone resin and silicone grease are some key forms of silicone.

The silicone market is expected to witness significant growth in the years to come. The market is mainly driven by increasing demand for construction and building across the globe. The growing and emerging chemical and automotive industries, especially in Asia Pacific region, is likely to boom the demand for silicone over the years to come. However, instable prices of raw materials such as; methyl chloride and silicone metal for the production of silicone is expected to impede the growth of silicone market. The changing dynamics of research and development for product improvement by the major players are likely to open growth opportunities for the market in the near future.
