COVID-19 Impact on Dimethicone Market

  • On January 30, 2020, the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee of the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak a public health emergency of international concern. Originating in China, the virus has spread to at least 214 countries and territories around the world.
  • Several governments and private sector businesses are operating at a limited capacity or have ceased operations completely due to recent events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Manufacture of various consumer goods and other products across the globe came to a halt due to the unavailability of raw materials, shortage of labor, etc. This is expected to hamper the dimethicone market.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Dimethicone Market

  • Dimethicone is primarily used in the personal care & cosmetics industry. Consumer preference for skin-friendly and healthy products is rising significantly due to the increase in awareness about the benefits of natural ingredients. Consumers are increasingly choosing skin-friendly products. Application of skin care products improves skin tone, texture, and appearance due to the presence of dimethicone that softens skin and enriches skin health.
  • Growth in demand for cosmetics, and beauty and personal care products is significantly driving the dimethicone market. Rise in awareness about personal hygiene and health; and increase in standard of living are encouraging market players to introduce quality and ecofriendly products. These are major factors expected to drive the global dimethicone market during the forecast period.
  • Pharmaceutical is another major end-use industry wherein dimethicone is used in substantial quantities. The global pharmaceutical industry has been expanding due to the rise in demand for hand sanitizers and vitamin capsules for daily use. Dimethicone is used for rheology modification, bio-adhesion, controlled release of solid dosage forms, and emulsification, among others.

Dimethicone: Type Segment

  • In terms of type, the global dimethicone market can be divided into low vіѕсоѕіtу dіmеthісоnе, medium vіѕсоѕіtу dіmеthісоnе, high vіѕсоѕіtу dіmеthісоnе, and others
  • The low vіѕсоѕіtу dіmеthісоnе segment is projected to hold major share of the global dimethicone market during the forecast period. It enables the NYDA (market leader in the effective treatment of head lice and its eggs [also called nits]) head lice solution to penetrate into the breathing system. Its evaporation causes the thickening of the NYDA solution. This mode of action prevents the development of lice resistance by preventing the formation of new progeny.
  • The high vіѕсоѕіtу dіmеthісоnе segment is projected to follow the low vіѕсоѕіtу dіmеthісоnе segment during the forecast period. High vіѕсоѕіtу dіmеthісоnе is suitable for all kinds of cosmetics such as creams, lotions, cleansing products, and sunscreen products. High demand for personal care & cosmetics is driving the global dimethicone market.

Dimethicone: End-use Segment

  • Based on end-use, the global dimethicone market can be segmented into personal care & cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food, and others
  • The personal care & cosmetics segment is projected to gain higher share of the global market during the forecast period. Personal care & cosmetics industry is highly regionalized and diverse. Numerous products such as hair care, skincare, fragrances, shampoos, and others use various chemical ingredients. Commonly used chemical ingredients are polymers, emulsifiers, pigments, thickeners, and surfactants. Continuous innovations in the formulation of various skincare and hair-care products is one of the major factors driving the global market for dimethicone.
  • The pharmaceuticals segment is projected to hold key share of the global dimethicone market in the near future. Dimethicone offers custom-designed chemicals, as well as expertise and proprietary knowhow in biopharmaceuticals, drug delivery, and nutraceuticals. Dimethicone is used in the treatment of bloating and abdominal pain. It is used to treat or prevent symptoms such as a dry, rough, scaly, itchy skin and minor skin irritation associated with diaper dermatitis. It is also used as a solution or spray to treat head lice. Dimethicone collaborates with leading cosmetic and pharmaceutical companies in product formulation and development, using either proprietary or non-proprietary materials.

Asia Pacific to Hold Leading Share of Dimethicone Market

  • In terms of region, the dimethicone market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • Asia Pacific is expected to hold major share of the global dimethicone market, followed Europe and North America, during the forecast period. Asia Pacific has been a key region for personal care & cosmetics products manufacturers. It has been identified as a key consumer for dimethicone and has been the epicenter for personal care & cosmetics products manufacturing. Increase in disposable income of the people along with the need to stay updated about the latest fashion trends such as perming, hair coloring, and the use of BB/CC creams is expected to drive the dimethicone market in Asia Pacific. Rise in experimentation with innovative and customized personal care products is further propelling the market in the region.
  • The dimethicone market in Europe and North America is projected to expand at a rapid pace in the near future

Dimethicone: Introduction

  • Dimethicone is a silicone oil that is also known as polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). It has viscoelastic properties. Dimethicone is used as surfactant, antifoaming agent, and carminative in various products such as medical devices, food, and lubricants. It is used in a number of health and beauty products including hair care products such as shampoos, conditioners, leave-in conditioners, and de-tangling products. On skin, it is also observed to have moisturizing actions.
  • Dimethicone contributes to the "slip" or "glide" felt upon the application of skincare products, making them spread easily onto the skin. Additionally, dimethicone coats the skin, helping moisturize it by reducing water loss and providing the skin with softness and coverage - without feeling heavy.
