Occasionally, the numerous beneficial qualities of silicone adhesives and sealants are used in the industrial appliance and automobile industries, making it a very desirable raw material with profitable business opportunities. The adoption of silicone adhesives and sealants is anticipated to grow quickly as new applications for various industrial as well as household appliances are getting created in contemporary times.

Nowadays, silicone is being increasingly used in sealant technologies to enhance UV stability, higher thermal tolerance, better workability, and improved adherence to a range of building surfaces. Due to the numerous uses for silicone sealants, such as heat insulation as well as joint sealing, the building construction and infrastructure development sector is the prominent end-user vertical for the silicone adhesives and sealants industry.

Given the widespread use of silicone adhesives and sealants across a variety of end-user sectors, including industrial, biomedical, automobile, and aviation, the demand for silicone adhesives and sealants is found to be higher in industrial economies. So, the European region is expected to remain the fastest-growing region throughout most of the forecast years due to the expanding usage of silicone adhesives and sealants in its evolving automobile, medical equipment, and related industries. Moreover, nowadays, the developing nations of Asia-Pacific are also emerging as significant producers and consumers of silicone adhesives and sealants.

The packaging sector also makes extensive use of different types of silicone adhesives and has a specific need for adhesives that are very flexible in nature. In this sector, the most widely used adhesive technology in 2022 was found to be water-borne silicone adhesives, which represented 70% of the market share. Another factor supporting its tremendous growth in the last few years is that compared to other technologies employed in this sector, this one is more affordable.

As per this market report, the top five market players account for nearly one-third of the sales of silicone adhesives and sealants recorded worldwide in the preceding years. However, the market is getting highly fragmented in recent years with the entry of many new regional silicone adhesives and sealants market players and the proliferation of online business channels.

Adhesives and sealants have been known since centuries. They are primarily used for bonding of two different substrates. Development in chemicals and polymers technology have brought adhesives and sealants to the next level of industrial solutions. The unique chemicals structure of silicone offers outstanding adhesion properties over other materials.

Silicone bonds can resist great stress, pressure and can be stable over extreme temperature conditions. Due to its versatility, silicone adhesives and sealants deliver reliable and long lasting adhesion to different substrates ranging from glass, metals and plastics. Silicone adhesives and sealants offer unparalleled flexibility, resistance to extreme temperatures, durability, outstanding performance and making it suitable for various applications in electronics, aerospace, construction, automotive and healthcare industry.

Various types of silicone adhesives and sealants are available in the market such as one component, two component and UV cured adhesives, which differs on the basis of their functioning and benefits. One component adhesives are more convenient as no mixing is required and it has the ability to cure at normal temperature.

While the two component adhesives require mixing and it can cure in thicker parts as compared to one component adhesives. UV cured adhesives use electronic beam for curing without any excessive heat generation. Silicones have unique properties over other adhesives such as temperature stability at high temperature and offers elasticity at low temperature. In addition, silicone has moisture resistance and it is chemically inert which makes silicone adhesives and sealants suitable for many industrial applications.

Silicone material retains its properties over long period and gives excellent performance as compare to other materials due to strength and flexibility. The unique properties of silicone adhesives and sealants make it suitable for various applications such as sealing wires in electronics, structural glazing of façade in construction and medical tapes in healthcare industry. The ability to resist chemicals and water, they have been used for sealing engines and gaskets in the automotive industry.
