INDUSTRY INSIGHTS

The global liquid silicone rubber market size to cross USD 3 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period. The automotive industry is expected to be a major end-user of liquid silicone rubber products. The concepts of micro molding and cleanroom molding and the dominance of liquid injection molding systems in the manufacturing industry are likely to emerge as the major contributing factors for market growth. The APAC region is expected to dominate the market during the forecast as the region is witnessing the growth in manufacturing industries. The increasing dominance of IoT and AI and virtual reality is changing the landscape of the electronics industry as the demand for liquid silicone rubber in advanced consumer goods is increasing. Further, the use in automotive LEDs and spare parts is influencing market growth.

The introduction of new MICROLIM molding machines, which are suitable for cleanroom and medical applications, is expected to drive the market substantially. As liquid injection molding processes produce less waste with short cycle time, the market is expected to witness growth during the forecast period. The market for liquid injection molding systems (LIMS) tends to increase due to their efficiency in producing components with modern foaming and thermoset overmolding. The ‘2K’ molding feature, which comprises multi-material, multi-color, and multi-durometer processing, is expected to be a vital growth factor for the utilization of liquid silicone rubber in the molding stage. 

LIQUID SILICONE RUBBER MARKET SEGMENTATION

This research report includes detailed segmentation by

  • Grade
  • End-user
  • Geography

INSIGHTS BY GRADE TYPE

Food grade liquid silicone rubbers are widely used for food preparation and storage. They are designed in such a way that they become hypoallergenic to consumers. They resist bacteria and microorganism growth, thereby increasing their application in the food and beverage industry. They are widely prescribed for kitchenware appliances, as these materials have a high thermal resistance. The APAC region holds maximum revenue in the liquid silicone rubber market due to rapidly growing end-user industries such as electrical, automotive, and baby care in China and India.

High hygiene capabilities of medical liquid silicone rubber and specialized medical applications in cardiology, oncology, orthopedics, neurosurgery, and other surgeries have substantially increased the market share of the medical-grade segment. The growth in the food and beverage industry is expected to influence the food-grade segment. A range of food-grade liquid silicone rubber is successful in replacing traditional rubbers such as latex, especially in baby care products.

INSIGHTS BY END-USERS

The automotive industry is witnessing a steady growth in the adoption of automation technology. The adoption of liquid silicone rubber as a cost-effective alternative to traditional rubbers is seen as a breakthrough for market growth. The increasing demand for lightweight materials in automobile manufacturing is likely to boost demand.

As liquid silicone rubber offers consistency, stability, durability, quality, and cost-effectiveness, they are increasingly being used in the manufacturing of a range of syringe stoppers, flow control valves, connectors, caps, and device components. Hence, the growing application of these materials in the production of medical disposables is expected to emerge as a significant driver for the global liquid silicone rubber market growth.

The replacement of thermoplastic elastomers by liquid silicone rubber for the manufacturing of baby care products, infant goods, and other consumer durables is a significant boost for the baby care market growth. APAC has emerged as the strongest market for consumer and baby care products.

The growth in the global semiconductor industry is likely to be one of the potential markets growth in the forecast period. Liquid silicone rubber helps to improve the functioning of sensitive electronic parts that are used in the entertainment and semiconductors industry, where they are predominantly used for protecting, sealing, and bonding purposes.

INSIGHTS BY GEOGRAPHY

The global liquid silicone rubber market share is greatly influenced by major industries such as automotive, electronics, and healthcare. The APAC region is the market leader due to the presence of several electronics and manufacturing sites that are making use of this material. 

The growing automotive industry in the US is a major driver for liquid silicone rubber market growth. Moreover, factors such as the growing economy, the increased industry growth rate, government regulations, improved private investments are driving the GDP of North American, which, in turn, is expected to support the growth.

Europe is led by Germany, a world leader in advanced vehicle production and modern innovative healthcare facilities. The penetration of e-vehicles in European countries has increased the demand for LSRs to be equipped with sensors and automotive safety electronics.

Latin America is likely to witness growth in LSR during the forecast period due to the Bounce Back of major economies such as Brazil and Mexico from the economic downfall. Further, government initiatives and opportunities for new public and private investments and trade practices can improve the industrial landscape, thereby substantially leading the growth.

The increased purchasing power, the growing economy, the demand for more sophisticated healthcare facilities will drive the demand for liquid silicone rubber in the MEA region during the forecast period.

INSIGHTS BY VENDORS

The number of industries getting benefited from liquid silicone rubber is numerous. This has led to the expansion of a few manufacturing giants such as Dow Chemicals, Shin-Etsu Chemical, KCC Corporation, Wacker Chemicals, and Elkem. With technology and innovation playing a major role in the market position.

Vendors are adopting liquid silicone rubber in line with modern requirements. The entry barriers of the industry are generally based on government policies and regulations. With the abundance of silicone, the manufacturing cost is set to be limited. The scope and benefits of LSR across industries can lead to the development of new local players across the regions. This might be a crucial factor in determining market sizing and revenue of major players. Vendors are also trying to expand their business through mergers and acquisitions. The agreement between South Korean companies and MPM Holdings Inc., for $3.1 billion, might help them penetrate their product lines and distribution channels.
