Automotive Silicone Market To Reach USD 4.41 Billion By 2026 | Reports And Data

Automotive Silicone Market Size – USD 2.69 billion in 2018, Market Growth - CAGR of 6.3%, Automotive Silicone Industry Trends – Stringent regulation on vehicular emission

New York, Sept. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Increasing demand for automotive silicone from emerging economies is a significant factor expected to stimulate market demand.

The global automotive silicone market is expected to reach USD 4.41 Billion by 2026, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Silicones are used in various ways to increase safety and reliability and to make automotive lighter and environment-friendly. Silicones are crucial to the advancement of automotive technology, due to a range of properties such as heat resistance, cold resistance, water repellency, releasability, defoaming properties, adhesiveness, and dielectric properties.

The growth of the market is primarily driven by the spiraling demand for efficient, lightweight, and durable vehicles worldwide. This may be attributed to shifting lifestyle trends and high disposable income of automotive consumers. The product is extensively consumed in the automotive sector for the production of windshield lining, ignition sets, cables, airbag cushion coatings, and radiator seals, among others.

Increasing demand for automotive silicone from emerging economies is expected to propel the growth of the market in the upcoming years. Easy availability of raw materials, cheap labor, and low transportation cost, among others, are the factors which are causative of a boost in the product demand in emerging economies.

The role of automotive silicone in enabling the adhesion of films and wrapping on automobiles is of significant importance and is attracting manufacturers to invest in product development. However, the high cost associated with the product may create hindrances in the growth of the market in the forecast period.
