Silicone Sealants Market – Global Drivers, Restraints, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts up to 2022

Silicone sealant is a viscous material based on silicone polymers that can be used in various industries to block the passage of fluids by sealing and bonding. It is applied in many areas because of its excellent stability, both chemically and thermally. These sealants provide energy savings, which help in lowering the greenhouse gas emissions. Silicone sealants are flexible products used in many industries such as construction, electronics, automotive, aerospace, industrial assembly, and maintenance among others. The increasing industrialization and focus on usage of better and more efficient sealants in automotive vehicles have created opportunities for the silicone sealants market. Although many new chemicals have been introduced to the market providing the properties of sealants, yet silicone sealants have been able to create its market demand owing to superior properties in its cost.

The construction sector is one of the major contributors toward the silicone sealants market. High growth in economy and the increasing per capita income among consumers in the developing countries have increased the demand of construction. Thus, the increasing demand for silicone sealants in these regions. Rising demand for the silicone sealants in the construction industry due to the superior characteristics of the products as compared to other sealants, such as polyurethane, polysulfide, and acrylic, are anticipated to be the important factors to drive the market during the forecast years. This trend is expected to continue with the construction sector leading the market during the forecast period.

By curing method, alkoxy silicone sealants are dominating the market of silicone sealants, which has a huge market in the construction industry with better performance and adhesion to various surfaces. The use of acetoxy sealants in glass insulation is also creating demands for the overall silicone sealants market.

Advancements in technology and the growing concern over the usage of non-eco-friendly products have added to the growth of the market. High manufacturing base in developed and developing countries coupled with the booming construction sector have further contributed to the market demand. Premium prices restrict the market for the silicone sealants in the lower per capita income countries. Yet it is expected to show a high growth rate during the forecast period in the developing and under-developed countries.
