North America Silicones Market to Grew by a CAGR of 4% between 2021-2026

According to a new report by EMR titled ‘North America Silicones Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the North America silicones market witnessed a CAGR of about 4% between 2021 and 2026. It is projected to further grow in the forecast period of 2021-2026 to reach a volume of 0.5 million metric tons by 2026.

The North America silicones market is being driven by the growing demand for silicone elastomers in the USA and Canada. Silicones are synthetic polymers with chains of alternating silicon-oxygen atoms. They find their application across various sectors due to their many favourable properties like thermal and UV stability, flexibility, adhesion, water repellence, antifoaming, and lubrication. While the market growth in the region is slower than in the emerging economies, the mature silicones market finds healthy demand from sectors such as personal care, renewable energy, and healthcare. The recovering automobiles and construction industries in the region are also driving the market growth.

Medical-grade silicones are one of the fastest growing sectors in North America. In 2017, the region was a leading market for medical-grade silicones. Silicones find widespread application in the medical and healthcare industries due to their biocompatibility. They are used to manufacture moulds, tubing, prosthetics, respirators, and hearing aids, among other medical equipment. Silicones are also used to make cooling caps which are utilized after undertaking chemotherapy treatments along with easy to remove and pain-free medical adhesives, which do not damage the skin. In North America, the demand for medical-grade silicones has been on the rise due to the increasing need for heart implants, aesthetic implants, and other implantable medical devices.

The energy sector is another major application sector for silicones in North America where they are chiefly used to make components in the renewable energy segments like wind and solar energy. Most of the solar panels are made of silicones as they add to the durability and functionality of the panels by creating strong bonds and seals as well as providing electrical insulation. In the construction of windmill shafts, silicones lead to lower costs of material, increase the lifetime of the panels along with decreasing the overall cost of the unit.

Market Analysis by Types, Applications, and Regions:

  • The types of silicones analysed by the EMR report are elastomers, fluids, gels, and resins.
  • Silicon metal, methanol, and hydrochloric acid are the primary silicone feedstock examined in the report.
  • Silicones find their end-use application in sectors like industrial processes, construction materials, home and personal care, transportation, energy, healthcare, and electronics.
  • United States and Canada are the countries covered in the report on North America silicones marker.

Key Findings of the Report:

  • The North America silicones market is being driven by the growing use in the transportation sector where they are used to make lightweight automotive component.
  • The market is also aided by an increasing demand from end-use sectors like construction and electronic industries.
  • Rising demand from industries like plastics and composites, paper and pulp, chemical manufacturing, paints and coatings, and food and beverages are further aiding the silicones market in the region.
  • North America has a self-sufficient silicones supply with the surplus being exported to supply deficient countries like Mexico.
  • Increasing demand for pharma-grade silicones in the healthcare and personal care industries globally has added to the growing exports of silicones to Asia Pacific countries like Japan, China, and South Korea.
