Silicones: Properties and Applications
Silicones or polysiloxane are synthetic polymers having a backbone made of alternating oxygen and silicon atoms. Due to its durability and stability under high temperature and having diverse forms ranging from solids to semi-viscous pastes to liquids, silicones finds their application across various industries. They find their applications as coatings, water repellents, emulsions, sealants and anti-foaming agents, among others. They are categorised as silicone fluids, elastomers, resins and gels. The major application sectors that these silicone types find their end-use in are:
Silicones are extensively consumed as anti-foams in the processing of oil and gas, and pulp and paper. In the solar energy sector, silicones find their application as coatings, sealants and adhesives, and contribute to almost 90% of the solar panels used. It is also used to make lightweight components in cars and other automobiles increasing fuel efficiency and reducing emissions. In the medical and health care sector, silicones are used to manufacture medical devices like pacemakers and insulin pumps along with prosthetics and artificial joints.
Europe silicones market is one of the leading markets globally and represented close to one-third of the total silicones market share in 2017. The silicones market in Europe is driven by rising demand in the healthcare sector for aesthetic implants, and in the renewable energy sector for applications in windmill and solar panels. Transportation, construction, electronics, personal care and medical sector are key applications sectors for silicones. Greater applications for liquid silicone rubber would drive the growth of the market in the medical segment.
In 2017, Western Europe accounted for almost half the world’s total silicones export. Germany and France are the major silicones manufacturing hubs in the region and other European countries import silicones either from these two countries or other countries outside Europe. Due to a supply surplus in the continent, silicones are exported from the continent to Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East regions. However, due to a growing capacity of the silicones market in Asia, exports from Europe to countries like China and Korea might reduce in the coming years. Europe imports specialised silicone formulations from the US due to rise in the transportation and cosmetic sectors.
Germany leads the demand for silicones for applications in the automotive sectors due to a significant number of automotive components manufacturers having their plants in the country. Germany is also close to Poland which is the largest automobile market in Europe.
