Global Silicone Tubes Market: Introduction

Silicone is a specialty high-performance material used in various industries. It is manufactured by reacting silicon with methyl chloride and further treating it with water to remove chlorine atoms. These reactions produce a polymer that is resistant to high as well as low temperatures, making it ideal for use in medical and health care industries. Silicone is flexible and resistant to moisture, chemicals, heat, cold, and UV radiations.

Silicone tubes is one of the most widely used materials in the high-purity processing industry, as the tubes are highly flexible, resistant to kinking and tearing, and a good choice for use with peristaltic pumps. Silicone tubing is generally designed for a variety of pump and transfer applications including pharmaceutical, laboratory, bioprocess manufacturing, and food & beverage applications. Silicone tubes are capable to withstand temperatures as high as 200°C. They are available in various internal diameters and wall thicknesses.

Global Silicone Tubes Market: Development & Trends

A silicone tube has a strong oxygen structure that imparts properties such as biocompatibility, superior resistance to high temperatures and chemicals, mechanical strength, and electric properties to it. Biocompatibility of silicone allows it to be compatible with human tissues and body fluids, thereby increasing its use in medical tubing. Establishment of wide crude oil production bases in Chile, Brazil, and Venezuela is likely to promote use of silicone tubes for transportation of fluids during the forecast period. Silicone tubes have the ability to resist chemicals, solvents, and extreme temperatures. They are flexible and resistant to moisture, chemicals, heat, cold, and UV radiations. All these factors promote growth of the global silicone tubes market.
