The automotive silicone market is likely to grow at a notable CAGR between 2020- 2027, reveals the new Market Research Future (MRFR) report. Automotive silicone, simply put, is a rubber-like polymer that is heat-resistant and used to manufacture thermal and electrical insulation, sealants, lubricants, and adhesives. Silicone products are widely used in the automotive industry to improve comfort, safety, and reliability and make cars light in weight. Suspension system, engine and drive train system, electrical system, interior and exterior, and others are some of its key applications.
Numerous factors are adding to the automotive silicone market demand. Such factors, as revealed by the latest MRFR report, include the growing automotive industry in the Asia Pacific region, burgeoning demand for lightweight and high-efficiency materials in the automotive industry, high disposable income, shifting trends of lifestyle, favoring government acts and regulations like Clean Water Act and Clean Air Act, and recent technological advancements like the convenient usage of silicone rubber with that of thermoplastics to offer lowered frictional coefficient and improvements in mar & scratch resistance.
On the contrary, rising raw material prices and increasing use of electric cars are factors that may limit the automotive silicone market growth over the forecast period.
