Silicone oil Market 2019 Global Industry Sales, Supply, Consumption, Demand, Analysis and Forecasts to 2025

Silicone oil is a liquid polymerized siloxane with organic side chains. It is also known as polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)

Market Synopsis:

Silicone oil is a liquid polymerized siloxane with organic side chains. It is also known as polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). The compound is colorless, transparent, viscous liquid that can be obtained in a wide range of viscosities. Viscosity is interlinked to the molecular weight of the silicone polymer. It offers various significant properties such as high thermal stability, low surface tension, oxidation stability, chemical inertness, high shear stability & viscoelasticity, high thermal conductivity, excellent dielectric properties, incompressible as well as are non-toxic, non-flammable, and non-corrosive nature.

Silicon oil finds application as damping fluid to dampen vibration, dampen motion, and dampen torque in various end-use industries such as military & defense, aerospace, automotive, oil & gas exploration where high rates of pulsation and vibrations are encountered. Damping fluids are used in a range of equipment such as pressure gauges, pumps, flow testing equipment, geothermal monitoring equipment, subsea gadgets & cables, shock dampeners for vehicles, aviation gyroscopes, and others.  Silicon oils are also used as thermal bath fluids owing to its high thermal stability in industries, which deals with pumping and circulating over a wide service temperature range such as chemical & petrochemical, automotive, and aerospace industry among other. Additionally, silicone oil is widely used as a lubricant in different end-use industries such as textile, automotive, and aerospace as base fluid for greases, gasket lubricant, valve lubricant, sewing thread lubricant, and others. It also drives demand in the electronics industry as a dielectric fluid for various applications such as in capacitors, klystrons, magnetrons, microwave tubes, power rectifiers, radar equipment, and transformers among other. Furthermore, it is used in polishing applications such as boat polishing, car polishing, furniture polishing, metal cleaners, vinyl polishing, and window cleaners among other owing to its viscosity and glossy nature. Furthermore, Cosmetics & personal care industry drive huge demand of silicone oil for synthesizing antiperspirants, deodorants, hand creams and lotions, hair sprays, lipstick, make‐up or color cosmetics, shampoos and conditioners, shaving creams.  Silicone oil also finds application in the healthcare industry such as in vitreoretinal surgery, Process Aids for Antibiotic Preparations, Sterilization Baths, and others. 

Strong demand for cosmetics & personal care products on account of expanding population and rising disposable income are likely to drive the growth of the silicone oil market over the forecast period. Growing automotive industry in Asia Pacific owing to rising consumer purchasing power and low labor cost is expected to drive a huge demand for silicone oil in various applications as a lubricant, release agent, damping fluid, dielectric fluid, and thermal bath fluid over the forecast period. The healthcare industry is also expected to drive a significant demand for silicone oil over the forecast period.   However, high production cost of silicon oil is likely to hinder the market growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, availability of bio-based substitutes such as bio-based oil may also hamper the demand for silicon oil in cosmetics industry during the forecast period.
