Dimethyldichlorosilane Market: Introduction
Dimethyldichlorosilane is referred to by the chemical formula Si(CH3)2Cl2. Dimethyldichlorosilane is a tetrahedral organo-silicon compound. Dimethyldichlorosilane is found as a colorless liquid at room temperature. Dimethyldichlorosilane reacts with water to give rise to linear as well as cyclic Silicon Oxide chains. Dimethyldichlorosilane is synthesized on an industrial scale as a precursor to dimethyl silicone and polysilane compounds. The history of Dimethyldichlorosilane dates back to 1863, but the first successful synthesis of Dimethyldichlorosilane took place in 1930. The Dow Corning Company which was initially conceived as a partnership between General Electric, Corning Glass Works, and Dow Chemical Company demonstrated the first successful synthesis of dimethyldichlorosilane on an industrial scale. However, the direct process which is used today in the synthesis of dimethyldichlorosilane involves the reaction of elemental silicon with methyl chloride in the presence of a catalyst which is primarily copper.
The need for Dimethyldichlorosilane became all the more critical due to the increasing demand for silcones which find application in electric motors and as sealants for aircraft engines. Another trend which is expected to increase the demand for dimethyldichlorosilane in the coming years is the gaining popularity of green tires. These tires are touted to have better grip on wet surfaces and also higher rolling resistance. The growing concern regarding automotive pollution as well as fast depleting fossil fuel reserves are one of the common pain points which is expected to encourage automobile manufacturers switch to green tires in their automobiles. This is likely to boost the market for dimethyldichlorosilane as dimethyldichlorosilane is the primary raw material used for the manufacture of green tires.

Dimethyldichlorosilane Market: Market Dynamics
The increasing construction activity and the requirement of aesthetically pleasing corporate buildings requires the use of large volumes of glass. In order to prevent the adsorption of micro-particles on glass, dimethyldichlorosilane coating is applied onto glass. Given the high volume requirement of glass used in a multitude of industries such as automobiles, buildings, as well as souvenirs, the dimethyldichlorosilane market is expected to witness growth in the coming future. In addition, the use of dimethyldichlorosilane as sealants for electric motors and aircraft engines is also expected to aid the growth of the dimethyldichlorosilane market. Further, the growing concern regarding automotive pollution as well as fast depleting fossil fuel reserves are one of the common pain points which is expected to encourage automobile manufacturers switch to green tires in their automobiles. This is likely to boost the market for dimethyldichlorosilane as dimethyldichlorosilane is the primary raw material used for the manufacture of green tires.
One of the major deterrents which is adversely impacting the growth of the dimethyldichlorosilane market is the high cost of raw materials / chemicals required for the industrial scale synthesis of dimethyldichlorosilane. This increase in the raw material costs is a result of fluctuating exchange rates, and also environmental protection measures due to which regulation and restriction of chemicals usage including Dimethyldichlorosilane by various governments across the world.
Dimethyldichlorosilane Market: Regional Outlook
On the regional front, Asia Pacific is the most dominant market for dimethyldichlorosilane. The demand for dimethyldichlorosilane is primarily from the Indian and Chinese markets. The demand for dimethyldichlorosilane is induced by the fact that there are no stringent regulations for the production and storage of the compound.
