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.
