Global silanes market forecast at $2.4 billion by 2026

  9/18/2020 - Noida, India - According to Blueweaves Consulting, the global silanes market worth is expected to reach $2.47 billion in 2026 from the $2.19 billion in 2019, at CAGR of 5.83 percent during period 2020-2026. The demand for silanes is dependent on the growth of the automobile, consumer electronics, construction and pharmaceutical industries. Silanes are widely used in the manufacturing of tires and production of paints and coatings, and plastic and rubber items as a coupling agent. The rising use of silanes in paints and coatings, rubber and plastics, fiber treatment, and adhesive and sealants applications triggers the demand for silanes substantially. Also, rapidly expanding construction activities, growing production of plastic, rubber and glass items, and rising use of adhesives in different industries assure the growth of this market. The silanes are basically colorless gaseous compounds of silicon and hydrogen carrying properties similar to acetic acid. They are used as coupling, crosslinking and blocking agents as adhesion promoters. Based on function, the silanes are divided into organo-functional silanes and mono/chloro silanes. The silanes' reactivity acts as a bridge between organic or inorganic or polymer substances of minerals, fillers, metals, rubber, thermoplastics and others, and improve adhesion. They promote adhesion in paints and coatings, disperse molecules in concrete, reinforce fiberglass and mineral fillers in plastic and rubber, and crosslink polyethene, acrylics and urethanes in paints and coatings. The rubber and plastics segment dominate the global silanes market. Based on application, the silanes market is segmented into rubber and plastics, fiber treatment, adhesive sealants, and paints and coatings. The rubber and plastics segment dominates the global silanes market in terms of value and volume, and is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forthcoming period due to rising demand for green tires and lightweight plastic parts in the automotive sector. The most populated developing economies such as China and India are witnessing a surge in infrastructure projects. The construction activities for rural and urban housing, as well as commercial properties, are enormous, driving demand for paints and coatings. The development in the automotive, construction, aerospace, glass and metal industries drive the demand for silanes in the market. The paint and coatings industry extensively uses silanes to provide durability, water-resistance and heat-resistance to water-based coatings. Also, the automotive industry uses green tire made by the use of silanes to improve fuel efficiency and rolling resistance, and to comply with carbon emission standards. The rising demand for the same promises bright prospects for the global silane market. However, a shift towards paper-packaging and eco-friendly packaging material and regional disparities in usage impede the growth of the silanes market. The Asia Pacific region holds the major market share, contributing significantly to the global silanes market. It is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the projection period 2020-26. It consists of various developing economies like India, China and others which are characterized by industrialization, rapid urbanization, more investment in infrastructure projects by state and private enterprises, and rising population and per capita income. Growing consumption of paints and coatings and plastic products, particularly in South Korea, Japan and China, is likely to induce the demand for silanes in this region. China is expected to emerge as a leader in Asia Pacific silanes market. North America is expected to capture the market for epoxy silanes, as there exists huge demand and production of the same. In contrast, the Central and South America and Central and Eastern Europe are anticipated to notice the growth in the mono/chloro segment of silanes. The silanes market in Latin America is expected to observe the sluggish growth rate during the projected period. "The leading players" in the global silanes market are Wacker Chemie AG (Germany), Momentive Performance Materials Holdings LLC (U.S.), Shin-Etsu Chemical Company Ltd. (Japan), WD Silicone Company Limited (China), Gelest Incorporation (U.S.), Dow Corning (U.S.), Gelest Inc. (U.S.), PCC SE (Germany), Air Products and Chemicals Inc. (U.S.), Nantong Sogeler Chemical(China), and others.
