Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) Market Size, Trends & Forecast | 2020 - 2025

The size and share of the Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) Market are set to expand from a USD 4.0 billion in 2020 to reach USD 5.2 billion by 2025, at a compound annual growth rate of about 6.0% over the foreseen period from 2020 to 2025. PDMS is extensively used in the production of adhesives, sealants, and coating materials.

Global polydimethylsiloxane market is relatively fragmented with regional and local players for the production of PDMS, of which DowDuPont Inc., Wacker Chemie AG, and Elkem ASA are frontrunners with the largest share and accounted for 50% – 55% of worldwide revenue.

Worldwide organic and inorganic plan of action designed to achieve a long-term or overall aim to have been undertaken by prominent players and manufacturers are engaged in the development of new production of Polydimethylsiloxane. In 2018, Wacker Chemie AG launched a silicone fluid under the brand name BELSIL for the cosmetics industry.

Drivers in the Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) Market

  • Growing demand from various end-use industries

  • Increasing demand for HMW of PDMS will also accelerate the market growth

  • Replacement of hydrocarbon-based products with PDMS fluid-based products

  • Growing prevalence of elastomers will also augment the growth of this market
