Global Silanes Market size- Industry Trends & Outlook Report
The Global Silanes Market Size is anticipated to grow to USD
2.19 billion by 2026 from USD 1.47 billion in 2019, at CAGR of 5.83% during the
period 2020-2026. The growth in the Global Silane Market is driven by the
growth in the automobile, consumer electronics, construction and pharmaceutical
industries. Silanes are used in tire manufacturing, paints and coating as well
as in plastic and rubber production as a coupling agent. They improve rolling
resistance and compression and consolidate non-black pigments in the polymer
backbone in tires of automobiles. Also, the Silanes find their significant
application in paints and coatings whose demand depends on the volume of
construction and renovation activities. Rapidly expanding construction sector
assures market growth during the forthcoming period. Besides, the remarkable
rise in rubber and plastic production is also expected to further fuel the
demand for Silanes.
Global Silanes Market Overview
The Silanes are colorless gaseous compounds of silicon and
hydrogen with properties similar to acetic acid. They are used to improve
mechanical strength and electrical properties in some industries. Paints, inks
and coatings use Silanes to increase resistance to abrasions and improve
adhesion as well as for crosslinking and thermal stability. Silane is widely
used in producing eco-friendly, solvent-free and UV-cured coatings, which in
turn will drive the future market growth.
Based on product Silanes are divided into Organo-Functional Silanes
and Mono or Chloro Silanes. Sulfur, Vinyl, Amino, Epoxy, Methacryloxy are
different types of compounds of Silanes used for different purposes. Amino
Silane is widely used as a crosslinker, adhesive enhancer and consolidating agent
for multiple industrial applications. It reinforces materials and inorganic
fillers in resins' chemical bonding and is considered stable.
Its water-based application contributes to its massive demand in
coatings. Chlorine containing Silanes are used as a transitional item in the
production of ultrapure silicon objects in the semiconductor industry and as a
protecting agent in the pharma industry. In contrast, they are used as a
bonding agent in the rubber and plastics industry. Product is widely used in
plastic and packaging industry as mineral filler into the polymer matrix, which
enhances its functionality.
The industries using Silanes hold substantial growth prospects
which assure the accelerating growth for this market during the projected
Global Silanes Market Outlook and Trends
Development in Emerging Economies
The most populated and developing economies of the world are
shifting towards urbanization, and their infrastructure is undergoing massive
change with enormous outlay and construction activities. Every industry is
getting a boost due to rising developmental initiatives and per capita income,
thereby, driving growth of the Silanes market. The upcoming construction
activities in the private and public sector, in housing and commercial sector
and rural and urban areas across the world drive the demand for more paints and
coatings, which in turn, trigger the demand for more Silanes.
Increasing Demand for Water-based Coatings in Paints
Paint and coatings industry widely use Silanes for formulating
water-based coatings due to its non-reaction to water property, wettability and
adhesion features. They also improve water-resistance and heat-resistance
besides durability. The paint industry is the biggest user of the Silanes among
all the segments and the rising demand from this segment contributes
significantly to the growth of the Silanes market.
Fuel-efficiency and Compliances
The latest compliances related to fuel-efficiency and carbon
emission control by governments for automobiles encourage the use of Silanes in
the automobile industry to improve traction and rolling resistance of vehicles.
The Silanes strengthened green tires help improve fuel efficiency by 5%
reducing carbon emissions.
Shift Towards Paper-packaging and ecofriendly packaging
Due to growing consciousness towards ecological balance, the
industries world over prefer paper packaging to the traditional poly-based
material using Silanes as mineral filler. The packaging industry has been the
foremost user of Silanes, but this shift may adversely impact the growth of Silanes
Unbalanced Regional Growth
Some regions dominate the Global Silanes Market while other
regions such as Europe do not use Silanes in different industries. This regional
imbalance limits the expansion of Silanes market. However, their advantages in
automobile industry also open up opportunities in this region.
Impact of COVID-19 in industry
Significant sectors of economies across the world are
experiencing a slowdown in economic activities due to the prevalence of
COVID-19. The spearheading companies in the Silanes market are witnessing low
demand and low earnings during this fiscal. The distribution has been adversely
affected due to delaying raw material and finished goods supply. The dominant
end-use industries such as Automotives, Construction and Aerospace are
observing a decline in demand, thereby, affecting the Silanes market negatively.
However, the increasing industrial applications for different purposes and
technological developments open up opportunities in other sectors.
Global Silanes Market: Segmentation
In terms of application, the Global Silanes Market is divided
into Rubber & Plastics, Fiber Treatment, Adhesives and Sealants and Paints
and Coatings. Rubber and Plastics segment dominates the market with one third
market share, and it is expected to register highest CAGR during the projected
period due to high demand for green tires and more use of plastic for producing
lightweight automotive. Its demand depends on the automotive and consumer goods
sales. The tire demand from the automotive industry and replacement demand
number of vehicles on the road drive the market for Silanes.
Silanes are used to treat glass fibers, yarns, glass wools
surfaces and others as a coupling agent in general and high-performance
applications in construction, automotive, marine, and aerospace and others. Its
demand for fiber treatment is determined by the growth of glass fiber and
carbon fiber composites in different industries.
Silanes improve adhesion of adhesives and sealant in inorganic
substances such as stone, metals, glass and other rough surfaces to withstand
the environmental humidity, UV radiation, water and heat. The key end-use
industries using Silanes are growing, thereby promising better market prospects
during the forthcoming period. Use of Silanes offers many benefits in paints
and coatings as they enhance UV and thermal stability, chemical resistance and
corrosion protection of the coatings.
