Silicone Elastomers Market to Be Worth $15.1 Billion by 2031

Silicone Elastomers Market Size, Share, Forecast, & Trends Analysis by Type (Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR), High-temperature Vulcanize (HTV)), Process (Extrusion, Molding), End-use Industry (Automotive, Healthcare, Electrical & Electronics, Construction), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2031


Meticulous Research®—a leading global market research company, published a research report titled, Silicone Elastomers Market by Type (Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR), High-temperature Vulcanize (HTV)), Process (Extrusion, Molding), End-use Industry (Automotive, Healthcare, Electrical & Electronics, Construction), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2031.

According to this latest publication from Meticulous Research®, the silicone elastomers market is projected to reach $15.1 billion by 2031, at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2024–2031. The growth of the silicone elastomers market is driven by the increasing utilization of silicone elastomers across medical devices, developments in material science, and high demand for silicone elastomers in the electrical & electronic industry. However, environmental concerns, sustainability issues, and stagnant growth in developed countries restrain the growth of this market.

Furthermore, the integration of silicone elastomer with IoT devices and increasing demand for silicone elastomer for automobiles are expected to generate growth opportunities for the stakeholders in this market. However, fluctuations in raw material prices is a major challenge impacting the growth of the silicone elastomers market.

The silicone elastomers market is segmented by type (room-temperature vulcanize (RTV), liquid silicone rubber (LSR), high-temperature vulcanize (HTV)), by process (extrusion process, molding process (injection molding process, transfer molding process, compression molding process, other molding processes), calendering process, other processes), end-use industry (automotive, aviation & aerospace, consumer goods, electrical & electronics, healthcare, energy, industrial machinery, construction, other end-use industries). The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyzes the market at the regional and country levels.

Based on type, the silicone elastomers market is segmented into room-temperature vulcanize (RTV), liquid silicone rubber (LSR), and high-temperature vulcanize (HTV). In 2024, the high-temperature vulcanize (HTV) segment is expected to account for the largest share of above 52% of the silicone elastomers market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the advancements in manufacturing technologies; increasing demand for HTV in various industries such as automotive, aerospace, healthcare, and electronics, where high temperatures are prevalent; and increasing use of HTV for manufacturing of gaskets, seals, and components in engines and appliances in the electronic industry. The demand for HTV continues to increase as industries continue to prioritize safety, efficiency, and durability in their products and processes.

However, the liquid silicone rubber (LSR) segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The segment's growth is attributed to the innovations and development in material science, increasing demand for biocompatible material, and increasing high-volume production of complex parts in the automotive, healthcare, and electronics sectors. In March 2021, The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.) launched low-density liquid silicone rubber (LSR) for injection molding for various applications such as food dosing valves, closures, dispensers, seals, gaskets, and food contact applications in Europe and North America.

Based on process, the silicone elastomers market is segmented into extrusion process, molding process, calendering process, and other processes. In 2024, the molding process segment is expected to account for the largest share of above 45% of the silicone elastomers market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the increasing demand for LSR injection molding for the creation of complex parts, advancements in molding technologies and material science, and the growing demand for molding process for mass production of silicone elastomer parts across various industries. Moreover, this segment is also projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Based on end-use industry, the silicone elastomers market is segmented into automotive, aviation & aerospace, consumer goods, electrical & electronics, healthcare, energy, industrial machinery, construction, and other end-use industries. In 2024, the electrical & electronics segment is expected to account for the largest share of above 35% of the silicone elastomers market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the increasing use of silicone elastomers for manufacturing various components such as power supplies, circuit boards, and LED lighting components; increasing demand for high-performance and reliable electronic devices; and growing trend towards smaller and more compact electronic devices. Manufacturers are integrating multiple functions in electronic devices and encapsulating silicone elastomers for protection against shock, vibration, and environmental factors. Certain formulations offer inherent fire resistance, providing an extra layer of safety in electronics prone to overheating.

However, the healthcare segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The segment's growth is attributed to the increasing demand for biocompatible material for medical devices, increasing use of silicone elastomers to create controlled-release drug delivery devices to slowly release medication into the body, and increasing demand for silicone elastomers for various implants, such as breast implants, heart valves, and stents. In April 2023, DuPont de Nemours, Inc. (U.S.) launched Liveo Silicone Elastomer Blends to meet the growing consumer demand for products that address a range of troubling skin conditions such as scars, actinic keratosis, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and other skin conditions.

Based on geography, the silicone elastomers market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. In 2024, Asia-Pacific is expected to account for the largest share of above 53% of the silicone elastomers market. The market growth in Asia-Pacific is driven by the growth of the rapid economic development in Asian countries, particularly China and India, the growing healthcare industry in the region, increasing use of silicone elastomer in the construction sector due to increasing government investments in infrastructure projects across the region, and increasing adoption of silicone elastomers across various industries in countries such as South Korea, Japan, and Southeast Asian countries. China has become a major manufacturing hub for various industries that use silicone elastomers. For instance, in September 2023, Wacker Chemie AG (Germany) expanded its specialty silicone manufacturing capacities in China to manufacture functional silicone fluids, silicone emulsions, and silicone elastomer gels. Moreover, this region is also projected to record the highest CAGR of above 9% during the forecast period.
