Based on type, silicone elastomers are classified into, HTV (high-temperature vulcanization) also known as HCR (high consistency rubber), RTV (room temperature vulcanization), and LSR (LSR vulcanized at high temperature). Among the three main types of silicone rubber that are currently in production, LSR is witnessing strong growth owing to the increasing demand from various end-use industries. LSRs are gaining popularity because of their performance advantages such as biocompatibility, easy processing, ease of use, and the ability to be cast into any shape.

Based on end-use industry, the silicone elastomers market is segmented as building & construction, electrical & electronics, automotive & transportation, consumer goods, healthcare, foam and others. Demand for silicone elastomers has increased in the healthcare industry owing to the increasing demand for safe and sterile equipment. After the spread of COVID-19, there is an increased awareness and demand regarding safety of medical and pharmaceutical equipment. These elastomers are being extensively used in the industry because of their superior properties such as excellent UV and ozone resistance, ease of fabrication and processing, high thermal conductivity, and high gas & drug permeability.
