Silicone Oil Market 2018 : Statistics, Facts and Figures, Share, Segmentation and Forecast by 2025

Silicone Oil Market By Product (Methyl Silicone Oil, Dimethyl Hydroxy Silicone Oil Emulsion, Water Soluble Silicone Oil), By Application (Water Repellents, Heat Carrier, Lubricants, Working Media) By End-User (Agriculture, Personal Care & Home Care)

Market Overview:

Silicone oil is a liquid polymerized siloxane with organic side chains. It is also known as polydimethylsiloxane or PDMS. Silicon is the most important member of polydimethylsiloxane; these polymers are of commercial interest owing to their relatively high thermal stability and lubricating properties. It is created of a linear chain of siloxane repeating units and a variety of side chains. It was widely used as a fluid in the automobile cooling fan clutch assemblies before the industry switched to electric cooling fans.

Silicone oil class, known as cyclosiloxanes, has most of the same chemical properties as other non-cyclic siloxane liquids possess, it is beneficial in a number of personal care and cosmetic products such as antiperspirant, skin serums, shampoos, and others, owing to its relatively high volatility.

High demand for personal care and cosmetics on account of expanding population and rising income are likely to drive the growth of the silicone oil market. Emergent automotive industry in the Asia Pacific, in countries like India, China, Pakistan, and others, owing to rising count of a number of buyers and low labor cost is expected to upsurge the demand for silicone oil. Rising use of silicone oil in various applications as a lubricant, damping fluid, dielectric fluid, and thermal bath fluid over the past few years can further boost the market growth. The healthcare industry is also expected to drive a significant demand for silicone oil owing to use of silicone oil retinal detachments. However, the high production cost of silicon oil is likely to hinder the market growth during the forecast period.

Furthermore, the availability of bio-based substitutes and other alternatives such as bio-based oil may hamper the demand for silicon oil in the cosmetics industry in the near future. End-users such as cosmetic industry, textile industry, and aerospace or aviation industry are expected to be a contributing factor towards the growth of global silicone oil market in the upcoming years.
