Silicone fluids are the starting materials for further silicone products which are created by chemical functionalization. Such fluids are characterized by a very high thermal and thermooxidative resistance and have excellent resistance to temperatures from -60 to +300°C. Silicone fluids are also much for stable than organic polymers toward electromagnetic and particle radiation (UV, alpha, beta and gamma radiation).
Moreover, silicone fluids are characterized by very low volatility, excellent shearing resistance, low surface tension and very good water repellency and are used for wide range of applications in various end-use industries. Growing end-use industries are expected to demand more silicone fluid products in the near future and are expected to remain key growth drivers during the period of study.
Geographically Asia-Pacific dominated silicone fluid market owing to the large scale demand of silicone fluid into agricultural, textiles, home care and personal care applications. Asia-Pacific was followed by North America and Europe as second and third largest market for silicone fluid market. Asia Pacific is projected to have fastest growth, owing to rapidly developing infrastructure as a result of growing end-use industry base as a shifting of global manufacturing base in the region and, government initiatives in developing nations such as China, and India in this region.
