Global Silicone Additives Market- Industry Trends & Forecast Report 2028

The global silicone additives market was worth USD 1.6 million in 2021, and it is projected to reach USD 2.5 billion by 2028. The growth in the silicone additives market is primarily attributed to the increasing demand for paints and coatings from the automotive. Moreover, the rising demand for cosmetics and personal care products, such as shampoos, deodorants, conditioners, etc., is also accelerating the growth of the global silicone additives market.

Silicone Additives Market

Silicone Additives Overview

Silicone additive is a synthetic chemical substance made by the combination of silicon & oxygen atoms. It offers properties such as waterproofing and heat reduction, and is used as a conditioning and emulsifying agent. Silicone additives are generally used additives in the coating as silicone additives reduce the surface tension of the liquid coating. Silicone additives are extensively used in paints, inks, and coatings. In addition, silicone additives application in food & beverage, personal & home care, chemical & petroleum plays an important role in propelling the market.

Silicone Additives Market Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Demand in Automobile and Paints Segments

Silicone additives are used in a wide range of applications across automobile, healthcare, cosmetics, textile industries, and mostly in paint and coating sectors, due to its multiple properties such as adhesiveness, waterproofing, and resistance to extreme conditions. The ever-increasing demand for automobiles has directly resulted in boosting the requirement for paints and coatings in new vehicles, and it is being used in other applications such as airbags, textiles, leather goods, and decorative labels production in the automobile units. Automobile production worldwide crossed 100 million units in 2018; this expanding automobile production has contributed towards augmenting consumption of silicone additives across the globe.

Changing Consumption Patterns Coupled with Rising Demand for Cosmetics Products

Another key factor boosting the silicone additives market growth is the increasing concerns related to personal self-care and the mounting demand for high-quality silicone additive-based cosmetics. Silicon additives are used in lotions, creams, hydrating creams, tanning creams, sun protection creams, hair sprays & serums, styling sprays, and others. With the changing fashion trends, demand for cosmetic products continues to increase. Moreover, the strong desire of the aging people to get back their younger look is also driving the growth of the personal care industry, thus, in turn, spiking the growth of the global silicone additives market.

Restraints

Health Hazards from Silicone Additives to Impede Market Growth

Carcinogenicity, genotoxicity, modifications in protein conformation, immune system degradation, teratogenicity, skin rashes and irritations, and increased intraocular pressure are some of the aspects as to how silicone additives can adversely affect humans and the environment. These are all serious health concerns that can even be fatal. Furthermore, prolonged direct contact with silicone compounds might injure human skin and organs. All these factors may hamper the growth of the global silicone additives market during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Silicone Additives Market

COVID-19 pandemic has had a very negative impact on the silicone market as due to COVID-19, the need for automobiles has dropped dramatically, which resulted in the downfall of automobile products manufacturing. Consequently, the demand for silicone additives has also diminished as the paints and coatings for the automotive form a crucial part of the silicone additives market. Therefore, the requirements for silicone additives have also been affected. Also, with turbulent economic scenario across the globe, demand for cosmetics and personal care products has also declined significantly, resulting in reduced demand for silicone additives.
