Properties and Applications
Silicones or polysiloxane, are oligomers with a silicon-oxygen backbone. They are capable of taking a variety of physical forms ranging from solids to liquids to semi-viscous pastes, greases and oils due to their molecular structure. Due to their properties like adhesion, water repellent, lubrication, anti-foaming, flexibility, and thermal and UV stability, silicones find application in a wide range of industries like:
By Types, the market may be segmented into resins, fluids, gels and elastomers. Silicone anti-foams are widely consumed in the processing of oil and gas, and paper and pulp.
Latin America Silicones Market Analysis
Swift development of principal end-use industries like automotive, electrical, electronics and construction are expected to drive the growth in Latin America. Further, the presence of electronic producers should offer new opportunities for silicone producers in Latin America. Also, a broad crude oil production establishment in Brazil, Venezuela and Chile may stimulate the use of silicone polymers and fluids during the forecast period.
Rising demand for liquid silicone rubber is also likely to drive the market in Latin America. Expansion of the auto industry in Latin American markets, along with Asia Pacific and Africa, are projected to drive the high-temperature elastomer market growth. High-temperature elastomers are employed in the production of tyres, speciality rubber and seat cover. Silicones in Mexico might benefit from a robust increase in manufacturing activity.
The market for sealants and adhesives in Latin America should be driven by development in end-user segments such as construction and automobiles where adhesives and sealants are employed in panel laminating, flooring, insulation, facades, coating and lamination, etc. Chile, Colombia, Brazil, Peru and Argentina have witnessed rapid growth in their industrial sectors which has increased the demand for sealants and adhesives. While ecological concerns and volatility in prices of raw material may hinder market growth, bio-based sealants and adhesives may see greater demand in future. Among all types of sealants, silicone-based sealants should grow most rapidly during the forecast period owing to rising innovation in product development.
