Silicone fluids are the initial materials for further silicone products formed by chemical functionalization. The Silicone fluids are categorized by a very high thermal and thermo-oxidative resistance and have exceptional resistance to high temperature from -60 to +300°C. Silicone Fluids are mainly used in industrial areas under transformers. Silicone fluids are also much more stable than nonflammable mineral organic polymers toward electromagnetic and particle radiation (UV, alpha, beta, and gamma radiation). The silicone fluids are categorized by very low volatility, excellent heat resistance, solubility, and very good water repellency are used in a wide range of applications in various end-use industries. Based on the application the market is sub-divided into sealant, chemical, textile coating, release agent and others. In others, it is categorized into hydraulic fluid, lubricant, and water repellent.
The silicone gels owing towards the usage of solar cells and light emitting diodes is predicted to have a wide range of opportunities in near future. Additionally, silicone gels will play a key role in the pharmaceutical industry for breast implant products and these fluids are anticipated to continually gain market share. Antiperspirant contains a number of ingredients and has added benefits to people feeling fresh and smelling good. Antiperspirant is the cosmetic industry will play an important role in the growth of the market. Growing end-use industries are expected to demand more silicone fluid products in the near future and are expected to remain key growth drivers during the period of study.
Region-wise outlook Asia-Pacific dominated silicone fluid market owing to the large-scale demand of silicone fluid into agricultural, textiles, home care, and cosmetic products applications. Asia-Pacific was followed by North America and Europe as second and third largest market for silicone fluid market. The Asia Pacific is projected to have the fastest growth, owing to rapidly developing infrastructure as a result of growing end-use industry base as a shifting of the global manufacturing base in the region and, government initiatives in developing nations such as China, and India in this region.
