Published Date: | Report Code : MT1952336


The increasing demand for Silicone Oil from the construction and textile industries is expected to drive the growth of the silicon oil market during the forecast period. This has resulted in some of the key developments by companies operating in the market to consolidate their market positions and look for further niche opportunities.

A polymerized liquid siloxane with organic side chains is known as silicone oil. Silicone oil has silicon-oxygen bonds called organosiloxane. Silicone oil is highly viscous and non-toxic and hence, is used in many applications. It is used as a soothing and softening agent for fabrics in the textile industry and in skincare products.

Segment Analysis:

The silicone oil market has been segmented on the basis of application and end-user. Based on application, the silicone oil market has been segmented into sealant, skin & hair care, textile coating, detergent, chemical intermediate, anti-foam agent, release agent, and others. There is a high demand for silicone oils for skin & hair care, as the demand for skin care and hair care products is rising. Silicone oil is used in various sunscreens, facial oils, facial cleansing products, hair oils, etc. Silicone oil is highly compatible with a large range of formulation ingredients and also has low chemical reactivity. Hence, this oil is widely used in skin and sun care products, body lotions, and make-up products. The rise in demand and consumption of these products has affected the silicone oil market positively.

Based on end-user, the silicone oil market has been divided into chemical, construction, personal care, textile, electronics, automotive, medical, and others. There has been a rise in the demand for silicone oil in the medical industry due to the growing cases of complex retinal detachments. The oil is widely used as a tamponade agent to remove the aqueous humor between the retina and the retinal pigment epithelium. Moreover, there has been a significant increase in the demand for silicone oil from the construction and textile industries due to its lubricating action. Silicon oil prevents materials and joints from extreme weather conditions and is now being used as a surface treatment problem of building, coatings for roofs, etc. Silicone oil is also used in the textile industry, along with textile fibers to soften the fabric.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Possess features, such as hydrophobicity, non-flammability, and physiological inertness

  • High viscosity and eco-friendly in nature

  • Prevents joints and materials from severe weather, corrosion, pollution, heat, and moisture
