Silicone elastomers quickly grabbed the market when they were introduced in the mid-20th century. The properties such as fuel & oil resistance, higher temperature stability, and lower smoke within affordable price range attracted the customers.

The silicones that can operate at a consistent higher temperature (usually around and above 150°C) are termed as high-temperature silicones. Consistently growing industrialization, increasing miniaturization, and improving high temperature technologies are giving rise to increase in high temperature materials, thus giving opportunities for high-temperature silicones. Few new high performance chemicals have been developed in the past decades, and have proven themselves useful in major application areas of industrial and automotive, yet the suitable price range and oil resistant properties of silicones give them an edge over competing chemicals.

Key Market Insights

Silicone elastomers are the major contributors to the high-temperature silicone market followed by silicone coatings. Silicone elastomers, being premium products, are preferred over thermoplastic elastomers due to silicone’s high thermal resistance, which are used in the high temperature change areas. Automotive and construction industries are the major contributors to the high-temperature silicone market owing to high demand from developing countries and increased investments by the companies. This trend is expected to continue during the forecast period as well. China, which contributed the majority of the revenue in 2016 is estimated to continue to lead the market until 2022.

The expected economic stability in Europe will boost its industrial and automotive industry, thereby increasing opportunities for the high-temperature silicone market. Supportive government regulations to increase the chemical production and higher disposable income will drive the market growth.
