Silicone Oil Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2018 - 2026

Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC616


Silicone oil is basically an organic side chain compound and primarily is a liquid polymerized siloxane. Polydimethylsiloxane is one of the most important compounds for making of silicone oil. These polymers are commercially more demanded due to its lubricating properties and relatively high thermal stability.

Market Dynamics

The use of silicone oil has increased compared to mineral oil due to its physical and chemical properties like high thermal stability. The wide usage of silicone oil is seen in various applications, especially in vitreoretinal surgeries. Also, silicone oil lubricants find widespread application in industrial processing like textile finishing, polymer production, etc. hence escalating the market demand. However, high cost of manufacturing and granuloma formation during vitreoretinal surgeries due to the use of silicone oil restricts the market growth. Silicone oil is immensely used in personal care and cosmetic products owing to its biocompatibility, conditioning benefits, and pressure sensitive properties among others Growing demand for personal care products among geriatric population due to anti-aging properties is expected to propel the growth of silicone oil in coming years.

Market Classification

The market for silicone oil can be bifurcated on the basis of application, end use and geography. By application, silicone oil market can be segmented into lubricants, water repellents, working media, heat carrier and others. By end use, the silicone oil market can be segmented into titanium, industrial, personal care & home care, textile, energy, automotive & transportation, agriculture and others. On the basis of geography, the silicone oil market can be segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East & Africa (MEA) and Asia-Pacific.
