Europe Silicones Market to Reach 1 Million Metric Tons by 2024

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Europe Silicones Market and Forecast 2019-2024’, the Europe silicones market is being aided by the growth of the global silicones market at a CAGR of nearly 5% between 2014-2018. The Europe silicones market is projected to reach 1 million metric tons by 2024. 

Silicones are polymers made up of chains of alternating silicon and oxygen atoms. Due to the versatility of their forms which range from solids to liquids to a paste-like consistency, they find their application across numerous sectors. They are used as coating agents, water repellents, emulsions, sealants, and anti-foaming agents, among others. The Europe silicones market is driven by the rising demand for silicones from the automobiles and transportation sector.

Silicones as rubbers, resins, lubricants, coatings, elastomers and coatings add to the make-up of various automobiles components like airbags, tires, gaskets, hoses, seals, sensors, fuel tanks, etc. Automobile components made of silicones contribute to the reduction of the total vehicular weight and also reduce friction.  With EU seeking to cut over a third of car emissions by 2030, the silicone industry in the region will find a further impetus as reduction of overall vehicular weights also leads to a greater fuel efficiency. Moreover, the move by EU intends to encourage the manufacture and consumption of more electric vehicles, which will also boost the silicones market. Silicones provide cost-efficient components for e-vehicles for adhesion, insulation, sealing, and fire resistance.

Germany and France are the leading manufacturing hubs for the Europe silicones market. They not only export silicones to other European countries but also to other regions like Asia Pacific, Middle East and Latin America. Germany, with a thriving automotive sector, is adding to the growth of the silicones industry in the region due to the rising demand for silicones from the automotive sector.
