Product Insights

100% silicone emerged as the largest product segment and accounted for more than 33% of the market in 2016. Its properties such as light weight, high tensile strength, clarity for transparency, and electromechanical resistance results in its suitability for various high heat applications such as exhaust stacks, furnaces, wood - burning stoves, lighting fixtures, and barbeque grills. Apart from heat resistant coatings, it is also used as abrasion resistant and food contact release coatings.

Silicone water repellent coating is the fastest growing product segment owing to its applicability over various surfaces and applications. In building facades, trapped moisture behind or within the substrates adversely affect longevity, degrades living comfort, and increases heating cost & thus the carbon dioxide emission.

Water repellency results in hydrophobicity which inhibit water from roaming through the substrate, thus provide moisture resistance to buildings. On account of excellent weather resistant characteristics, low heat conductivity, excellent shock resistant properties, this product segment is expected to gain popularity over the forecast period.
