Chlorosilane Market: Overview
- Chlorosilane is a chemical compound containing chlorine, which comes under the group of reactive chemical compounds related to silane. It is used in several chemical processes. The chemicals produced by chlorosilane contain at least one silicon–chlorine bond.
- Out of four chlorine atoms, one is bonded to silicon and other atoms are bonded to hydrogen and/or alkyl groups in chlorosilane compounds
- Chlorosilanes act as intermediates in the manufacture of siloxanes and silanes, both of which are building blocks for several silicone products.
- Chlorosilane is a hazardous chemical which can have adverse effect on the environment. Hence, more research on chlorosilane products is required.
Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Chlorosilane Market
- Advancements in technology are likely to enhance effectiveness and performance of chlorosilane in the near future, increasing its usage in downstream applications. This, in turn, is expected to drive the global chlorosilane market in the near future.
- Increasing demand for chlorosilane in the semiconductor industry, led by increasing use of electronic devices and electronic gadgets in developing as well as developed countries, is anticipated to drive the global chlorosilane market during the forecast period.
- Chlorosilane belongs to the category of hazardous chemicals. Hence, imports and exports of chlorosilane are limited, as every country has its own, strict transportation policies. This is expected to be a restraint of the global chlorosilane market in the next few years.
- Furthermore, adverse effects of chlorosilane on the environment as well as human health can restrict its use to specific areas. On contact, chlorosilane can irritate the skin, the eyes, and any mucous membrane in the human body. This factor is anticipated to act as a restraint of the global chlorosilane market during the forecast period.

Chlorosilane: Chemical Process
- In the chemical process wherein chlorosilane reacts with water, moist air, or steam, heat is produced along with toxic, corrosive fumes of hydrogen chloride. Sometimes, the reaction can also produce hydrogen gases.
- Chlorosilanes sometimes serve as chlorination agents also. At the same time, they vigorously react with both organic and inorganic acids and with bases, generating toxic or flammable gases.
Opportunity in Electronics & Telecommunications Industry
- Chlorosilanes are used for production of optical fibers, silicon wafers, and chips. Hence, they are considered important raw materials in the electronics & telecommunications industry. Chlorosilanes are used as starting materials in the production of fumed silicas.
- For coating of silicon and glass surfaces, organic chlorosilanes are frequently used. They are also employed in the production of silicone (polysiloxane) polymers.
Asia Pacific to Lead Global Market for Chlorosilanes
- In terms of region, the global chlorosilane market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
- Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the leading market for chlorosilanes across the world during the forecast period, due to increasing demand for chlorosilanes in China and other countries of ASEAN
- The chlorosilane market in North America is expected to expand at a rapid rate during the forecast period
