Polydimethylsiloxane Resins Market: Introduction

  • Polydimethylsiloxane resins are polymeric organosilicon compounds, which are widely used as silicon-based organic polymers, due to their unusual flow properties
  • These possess characteristics such as low surface tension and high spreading coefficient. Also, these offer excellent resistance to thermal and oxidative degradation and radiation.
  • Polydimethylsiloxane resins are commonly known as PDMS, poly[oxy(dimethylsilylene)], dimethicone, methylsilicone oil, etc.
  • These resins are highly miscible with carbon tetrachloride, benzene, chloroform, diethyl ether, and toluene. They are immiscible with water and ethanol.

Key Drivers of Global Polydimethylsiloxane Resins Market

  • Polydimethylsiloxane resins are optically clear, non-toxic, and non-flammable. They are extensively used in several end-use sectors including personal care & cosmetics, electrical & electronics, building & construction, health care, and industrial
  • Growing urbanization, rising middle-class population, and increasing disposable income of people have led to rise in space requirement across the globe. Ability of polydimethylsiloxane resins to adhere to the substrate, their excellent water repellency, outstanding flexibility, and chemical resistance make them a suitable material for use in the building & construction industry.
  • Polydimethylsiloxane resins are extensively employed in the health care sector for the manufacture of drug delivery vehicles, blood-contacting biomaterials, contact lenses, and microfluidic devices, due to their unusual rheological properties
  • Polydimethylsiloxane resins are widely used as ingredients in several skin care and beauty products, due to their excellent ability to act as anti-foaming agents and conditioners. They form a hydrating barrier, thereby preventing loss of moisture from the skin. Increasing pollution and stress is expected to pose a threat of skin diseases for people worldwide in the near future. This, in turn, has led to development as well as launch of new products in the personal care & cosmetics sector. Additionally, rising consumer dependence on cosmetic products led by advancements in technology and science has led to formulation of advanced personal care and cosmetic products. Growth of the personal care & cosmetics sector is expected to increase consumption of polydimethylsiloxane resins in the near future.

Asia Pacific to Hold a Prominent Share of Global Polydimethylsiloxane Resins Market

  • In terms of region, the global polydimethylsiloxane resins market can be segregated into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America
  • Building & construction, personal care & cosmetics, and electronics & electrical (E&E) industries in Asia Pacific are expanding due to rising consumer spending and increasing disposable income of people. This is expected to boost the demand for polydimethylsiloxane resins in the region in the near future. These resins are primarily used as adhesives, sealants, and coatings in the construction sector, due to their excellent adhesion to substrate, inherent chemical inertness, outstanding long-term durability, and in-built hydrophobicity. These features make polydimethylsiloxane resins an ideal material for use in structural bonding and joint sealing applications.
  • The polydimethylsiloxane resins market in North America and Europe is well developed and mature in nature. Also, producers of polydimethylsiloxane resins based in these regions are engaged in expanding their product portfolios through extensive research and development and in strengthening their foothold worldwide.
  • The polydimethylsiloxane resins market in Latin America is expected to expand at a lower rate than that in Middle East & Africa. Lack of infrastructure facilities and decreased funding by governments have led to rise in imports from Europe and North America to cater to the demand for polydimethylsiloxane resins in Latin America.
