Silicone Grease Market, By End-User (Automotive, Construction, Mining, and Industrial) – Drivers, Opportunities, Trends and Forecast Up to 2022


Silicone oil had started emerging as a niche market with high growth potential due to its wide operating temperature range and relatively higher resistance. When silicone oil is combined with a thickener, it forms silicone grease. Increasing industrialization and focus on usage of better and more efficient grease in automotive vehicles has created opportunities for Silicone Grease Market. Although, many new chemicals have been introduced in the market providing the property of lubrication but not all of them have enjoyed high demand and uptake.

Automotive sector is the major contributor for the Silicone Grease Market followed by industrial sector. Silicone grease, even though a premium priced product, is preferred over other greases present in the market due to certain superior properties such as thermal resistance and better performance. The silicone grease market has seen a rise in demand over the years owing to increasing demand from developing countries and increased foreign direct investments by manufacturing companies in these regions. High production cost of silicone oil has been a limiting factor for the Silicone Grease Market ever since its introduction, but the superior performance has paved path for market growth.

Asia Pacific is one of the key consumers for silicone grease and is expected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period with most of the demand generated from the developing countries such as China and India. China contributed majority of the revenue in the year 2016. The expected economic stability in Europe will boost its automotive sector thereby increasing market opportunities for silicone grease.
