Modified Silicone Market: Introduction
Modified silicone is silicone with additional functionality beyond the properties of common silicone fluid. Such properties are achieved through the introduction of numerous types of organic compounds or groups into common silicone fluid. Modification of silicone can add functional properties such as water solubility and repellency, paintability, lubricity, antistatic and softening, and compatibility or reactivity with organic substances, among many others. Modified silicone is widely used in the diversified range of applications such as resin modifiers, ingredients in cosmetics, textile treatment agents, water repellents for construction applications, additives for waxes, and release agents. Moreover, modified silicone is also used as a raw material in several industries to improve the function of existing polymeric materials and developing & formulating new materials. Modified silicone sold in the market as reactive and non-reactive modified silicone. Reactive silicone fluids contains various groups such as amino, epoxy, carboxyl, carbinol, phenol, among others. While non-reactive modified silicone contain groups such as polyether, alkyl, and fluorine, among many others.
Modified Silicone Market: Dynamics
Modified silicone is extensively used across various industries such as construction, textiles, and additives, among many others. Sustainable growth of such end-use industries is a key driving factor for the modified silicone market across the globe. The additional functional properties of modified silicone which are lacking in conventional silicone are a key reason of its use in increasing number of product formulations. Worldwide, the construction and building industry registered significant growth in the last couple of years, owing to urbanization along with population growth. Such factors are providing traction to housing and residential sector development, which in turn, rising demand for adhesives and sealants for various construction activities. And, modified silicone is used as raw material and additive in the formulation of adhesives and sealants. All such kinds of aspects are expected to lay the strong pave for robust market growth of modified silicone in the coming years. However, the presence of alternatives such as silicone and low awareness about modified silicone over conventional silicone are anticipated to hampering market growth during the forecast period.
