Rising utilization of coatings across the end-use industries, including defense, industrial, automotive, and building & construction, are augmenting growth of the global silicone coating market. Silicones are synthetic polymeric compounds made from siloxanes. Advancements in the silicone-based coatings make the compound be used in several forms, including oils, resins rubbers, coatings, and others. The effectiveness of the silicone-based technologies has boosted its demand across several applications and is estimated to fuel market growth. The global silicone coating market is estimated to expand by exhibiting a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period.
Higher use of silicone coating in these industries helps to result in time reduction while converting raw materials in end products. The use of silicone coating improves the life of the products by saving them from harsh weather and the environment. Thus, the coating material has a robust application across consumer electronics and automotive for packaging. Additionally, the use of silicone coated textiles across the automotive industry is fueling growth of the global silicone coating market.
However, the complex process of coating it over the counterparts of automotive and its high costs, which is hindering growth of the global silicone coating market. Nonetheless, the growing focus of key players on new product launches and production expansion. The players are entering into partnerships and collaborations, which are estimated to offer opportunities for growth in the coming years. For instance, the players are developing newer high-performance products; KIKUSUI announced a collaboration with BASF SE for the development of products in construction applications.
The rising application of the products based on silicone coating is augmenting its demand and is likely to fuel the market growth. Further, expanding construction industry boosts the global demand for the silicone-based roofing material, which benefits the growth of the silicone coating market.
The silicone-based roof coating is designed to resist against weather and offer long lasting protection from water and humidity. Thanks to its efficiency, the demand for silicone-based roof coating is growing substantially; thus, the players are trying to enter into the market by introducing newer products. For instance, in April 2019, Duro-Last, Inc. has expanded its Duro-Shield Roof Coatings solutions by launching Duro-Shield Silicone Roof Coating and materials.
