DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Silicones and Siloxanes Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global siloxanes market is expected to reach a volume of 3.7 Million Tons by 2023, exhibiting a CAGR of around 6% during 2018-2023.
The global market for silicones is expected to reach a volume of 2.8 Million Tons by 2023, exhibiting a CAGR of more than 5% during 2018-2023.
Siloxanes are volatile organosilicon compounds which consist of repeating silicon-oxygen (Si-O) bonds attached to the silicon atom. They generally occur in either linear or cyclic form. Siloxanes are characterised by their physiological inertness, high stability, and good release and lubricating properties. On the other hand, silicones or polysiloxanes are polymeric synthetic materials which are formulated from siloxanes. They commonly occur in the form of plastic with a flexible or rubberlike texture as well as have a high oxidation and temperature stability.
Silicones are being increasingly used as sealants, adhesives, and lubricants owing to the various properties offered by them. This is one of the major factors that is propelling the growth of the global silicones market. Additionally, silicones find several commercial applications ranging from electrical-wire insulation to biomedical implants. Moreover, the key force which is facilitating the growth of the siloxanes market is the flourishing food and cosmetics industries, where it is widely used as an oil substitute for low-calorie food products such as salad dressings, mayonnaise and potato chips; and to enhance skin texture, reduce greasiness, provide shiny look, etc.
