Market Overview:
The market for Silicone Elastomer Market was valued at approximately USD 6.34 Billion in 2023. Over the course of the forecast period (2024–2031), it is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.3%, reaching a valuation of USD 13.56 billion by 2031.

The high demand from end-use industries is one of the key reasons contributing to the growth of the silicone elastomers business globally. When compared to other elastomers, silicone elastomers have better qualities. These qualities make them essential for use in industry. Throughout the course of the projection period, end-use sectors like construction, automotive, and electrical and electronics are anticipated to increase rapidly.

The producers of raw materials, manufacturers of silicone elastomers, distributors, and end-use industries make up the silicone elastomer value chain. Producers of silicone, which is divided into three primary categories: silicone elastomers, silicone resins, and liquid silicone, are examples of raw material firms. As required by the industry, manufacturers of silicone elastomers create a broad range of goods using their own proprietary additives. Businesses are doing a lot of research and development (R&D) to expand their product line and create newer additives with better qualities in order to satisfy strict regulations and the growing demand in the sector. There is a significant degree of backward integration in the market area. Silicone elastomers are typically produced by the same companies that create silicone raw ingredients.

The U.S. silicone elastomer market is expected to grow moderately over the course of the forecast period due to restricted opportunities across the country caused by the maturity of the country's manufacturing sector generally and the use of silicone elastomers. However, continued product development and technical breakthroughs may promote the usage of silicone elastomers in medical and electric vehicle (EV) applications. This is anticipated to promote market expansion in the US throughout the course of the forecast period.

A number of states in the United States, including New Jersey, California, Washington, and Louisiana, provide incentives such tax credits, exemptions, and rebates to encourage the purchase of electric vehicles. Plug-in hybrid electric cars (PHEVs) and light-duty zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) are eligible for rebates in California, while New Jersey and Washington offer exemptions from sales and use taxes for EVs. From 2023 to 2030, it is projected that the various states' tax incentives will support the expansion of the electric car market in the United States. In turn, this is expected to drive up the need for silicone elastomers in the US in the upcoming years, which are used for cable insulation in zero-emission cars.

In markets including aerospace, automotive electronics, and industrial manufacturing, companies are spending in R&D to create sophisticated silicone elastomer compositions as well as manufacturing techniques that satisfy end users' demanding needs for performance.   Superior durability, dependability, and functionality can be created by engineers and designers with the help of high-performance silicone elastomers. Growing customer demand for durable silicone elastic materials emphasizes how important distinct products & material innovation are to maintaining competitiveness.
Market Restraining Factors:

High Cost of Raw Materials and Production

The expensive price of raw materials and manufacturing methods. Derived of silicone polymers, silicone elastomers require the use of specialized beginnings, such as silicon metal, throughout the manufacturing process, that can be costly. Silicone elastomer manufacturing also necessitates energy-intensive procedures, exact production conditions, & specialized machinery. The cost of making silicone elastomers is expensive due to a combination of complex production procedures and high raw material costs. Hence, as compared to other elastomeric materials, the ultimate product cost of silicone elastic materials is frequently higher. In example, silicone elastomers may not be widely adopted in price-sensitive application due to cost sensitivities in a number of end-use industries, including consumer products, construction, including automotive. In markets because cost considerations surpass the specific performance advantages that silicone elastomers offer, manufacturers and final users may investigate more affordable alternatives, which could have an impact on the market demand for silicone elastic materials.

Key Industry Developments:
  • In March 2022, Quadion LLC, a top producer of highly developed elastomers, purchased Primasil Silicones Ltd., a specialized silicone rubber compounder, mixer, and maker with headquarters in Weobley, in March 2022. The R&D team at Vercors successfully developed a range of 3D prints that were authorized for skin contact, as the company stated in January 2022. Many silicone elastomers have been developed as a result of the most current advancement, enabling more enjoyable skin contact.
