Global Liquid Silicone Rubber Market to Grow at a CAGR of 8% During 2021-2026, Aided by the Heightened Implementation of LSR in the Healthcare Sector

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Liquid Silicone Rubber Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the market reached a value of around USD 2.3 billion in 2020. It is expected to witness a healthy growth in the forecast period, growing at a CAGR of 8% between 2021 and 2026 to attain USD 3.60 billion by 2026.

The global liquid silicone rubber industry is being driven by the heightened adoption of liquid silicone rubber in the healthcare sector. It is used in the manufacturing of medical devices such as respiratory masks, medical tubes, and catheters. This increased usage can be attributed to its favourable properties such as high biocompatibility, durability, good electrical conductivity, and transparent nature. Moreover, it is increasingly used in the industrial sector, mainly for sealing and bonding applications and is ideally used in refrigerators, HVAC, and plumbing.

The growing focus of the leading players in the development of liquid silicone rubber technology by applying advanced chemical solutions in order to strengthen its efficiency is expected to positively catalyse the industry growth in the forecast period. A press release issued by Dow Inc. (NYSE: DOW), dated March 2021, announced the launch of their new low-density liquid silicone rubber, which offers improved processing, performance, and recycling. This lightweight LSR is used in products with food contact and other applications, as its properties include lower viscosity, higher resilience, and sustained gravity-separation recycling operations.

Furthermore, Avantor Inc (NYSE: AVTR), in a press release dated June 2020, announced its successful acquisition of RIM Bio, a China-based manufacturer of single-use bioprocess bags and assemblies for biopharmaceutical manufacturing applications, to expand its bioproduction capabilities in China. This would help Avantor to strengthen its bioprocessing manufacturing abilities to meet the global demands for single-use solutions. These developments are expected to significantly contribute to the growth of the liquid silicone rubber industry in the forecast period.
