Published on 2017-12-06. Author : SpecialChem

The report "Silicone Adhesives Market by Type (One-Component, Two-Component), Technology (PSA, Non-PSA) End-Use Industry (Building & Construction, Transportation, Medical, Electrical & Electronics), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022", The silicone adhesives market size is estimated at USD 2.18 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 2.95 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.24% between 2017 and 2022.

Medical: Largest End-use Industry of Silicone Adhesives
Asia Pacific accounts for the major share of 50.3%, in terms of value, of the overall silicone adhesives market. The Asia Pacific silicone adhesives market is driven by the presence of a wide range of end-use industries, such as building & construction, transportation, medical, etc.

Factors to drive Market

  • High temperature resistance
  • Excellent UV stability
  • Durability 
  • Ecellent gap filling capabilities of silicone adhesives 

Medical to Register Highest CAGR

Silicone adhesives are used in various end-use industries, such as building & construction, transportation, medical, electrical & electronics, and others (industrial assembly, maintenance, consumer products). The medical industry is estimated to register the highest CAGR of 7.15%, between 2017 and 2022, in terms of value, followed by the electrical & electronics industry. In 2016, the building & construction end-use industry accounted for the largest market share, in terms of both volume and value.

One-component: Largest Segment

One-component silicone adhesives are of a variety of one part, no mix RTV silicones. These materials crosslink by reacting with the ambient moisture which is absorbed on the surface at a room temperature. These adhesives cure rapidly at room temperature, generally forming a skin within minutes while becoming tack-free within a few minutes to hours and getting fully cured within 24 hours. Being a one-component system, it becomes difficult to obtain a quick full cure adhesion from top to down as air has to be passed to get it cured.

Asia Pacific: Drives Silicone Adhesives Market

Asia Pacific is the largest silicone adhesives market, in terms of both value and volume, and is projected to be the fastest-growing silicone adhesives market during the forecast period. The high demand in Asia Pacific is the major driver of the silicone adhesives market. China is projected to be the largest silicone adhesives market in Asia Pacific whereas India is projected to be the fastest-growing market. Other emerging economies such as Indonesia and Thailand are also projected to register a high growth in this market.
