NEWS: Liquid Silicone Rubber Market — Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2020 to 2027

Liquid Silicone Rubber Market: Summary

The Global Liquid Silicone Rubber Market is projected to reach a value of USD 4,097.35 million by 2027 at a CAGR of 8.2%.

Liquid silicone rubber is a high-purity, two-component platinum-cured silicone with superior stability and the ability to withstand at extremely high as well as cold temperature. It is versatile in the elastomers industry and is seen across the whole spectrum of the parts from consumer products to the medical devices and everything in between. Increasing demand from electrical & electronics and the healthcare industry are the key driving factors towards the market growth during the forecast period. However, stringent regulatory policies is acting as a major restraint of the market growth up to a certain extent.

Liquid Silicone Rubber Market: Market Dynamics

Market Driver:

  • Increasing Demand from Healthcare Industry
  • Liquid silicone rubber is used for the production of implants and medical devices due to its durability, ease of molding by many methods, wide useful temperature range, chemical inertness, high tensile strength, the vast range of available durometers, biocompatibility, and compatibility with many sterilization methods
  • Medical grade materials are prepared under rigorous testing and regulations to assure superior quality and adherence to safety standards
  • On 1st June 2019, Allergan (Ireland) launched a dedicated multi-channel campaign to contact patients who may not be aware of July 24, 2019, recall of BIOCELL textured breast implants and tissue expanders.
  • Increasing aging population across the globe along with increasing awareness about health concerns, which is driving the medical application of liquid silicon rubber market
  • According to the World health organization, the world’s population of aged 60 years and older is expected to total 2 billion by 2050
  • Thus the rising use of liquid silicon rubber application in the healthcare industry along with the rising aging population is expected to drove the growth of the market globally
  • Increasing Demand from the Electrical and Electronics Industry

Market Restraint:

  • Stringent Regulatory Policies
  • There are some regulations norms set by the various government bodies that silicon rubber manufacturers have must follow
  • A few regulations that many companies now have to comply with are Restriction of Use of Hazardous Substances (RoHS), the Dodd-Frank Act, and the US government’s International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) for use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment
  • For example,
  • Food contact applications (e.g. BfR, FDA)
  • Drinking water approval (e.g. KTW, WRAS, ACS)
  • Pharmaceutical and medical applications (e.g. European Pharmacopeia and U.S. Pharmacopeia USP)
  • National and international regulations and provisions (e. g. EU directive 2002/95/EC — RoHS, REACH)
  • Thus the stringent regulatory policies regarding the manufacturing and use of the liquid silicon rubber are hampering the market growth up to a certain extent

Liquid Silicone Rubber Market: Key Segments
