Press Release

Global Silicones Market Attained a Volume of Over 2.63 Million Metric Tons in 2023, Driven by the Flourishing Electronics Sector

Global Silicones Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Silicones Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the global silicones market size reached a production volume of more than 2.63 million metric tons in 2023 and estimated to reach a volume of over 4.18 million metric tons by 2032, registering a CAGR of nearly 5.30% during 2024-2032.

The growing demand for smaller, lighter, and more powerful devices across the electronics sector is contributing to the demand for silicones. Silicone finds application in the electronics sector for component and product insulation, sealing, protection, and helping in reducing the size and weight of electronic products. Furthermore, growing technological advancements in the electronics sector are fuelling the adoption of silicones.


Additionally, the growing construction sector is fuelling the adoption of silicones at a significant rate. The characteristics of silicone such as durability and resistance to decay make it an essential material in residential and office buildings, bridges, oil rigs, industrial plants, and pipelines.


The expansion of production capacities by key players is favouring the market growth. In May 2022, Ferroglobe PLC (NASDAQ: GSM), a prominent manufacturer of silicon metal, silicon-based alloys, and manganese-based speciality alloys, announced the restarting of its second furnace at the Selma, Alabama (United States) facility. With the restart, the annual silicon metal capacity for the domestic market in the United States is anticipated to increase to 11,000 tons.
