Challenges – Silicone Additives Market
The use of costly platinum catalysts in the manufacture of silicone which raises the overall cost of the silicone additive
The use of costly platinum catalysts in the manufacture of silicone additives for the paint & coating industry is a significant constraint, which raises the overall cost of the silicone additive. Platinum catalyst is often used in silicone-release coatings as an external curing method. Low platinum volume can affect curing velocity efficiency and release the coatings property. A compromise in platinum volume can lead to incomplete cure. In addition, the high expectations, demanding specifications and daunting challenges facing the plastics industry these days create opportunities for innovation in silicone additive products.
Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Silicone Additives market. In 2019, the market of Silicone Additives has been consolidated by the top five players accounting for xx% of the share. Silicone Additives Market top 10 companies are Dow Corning, Siltech, Momentive Performance Materials, Shin-Etsu, lkem, KCC Corporation, BYK Additives, Wacker Chemie, BRB International and Evonik, among others.
In July 2019, Wacker Chemie AG released a new thermoplastic polyurethane silicone additive to be marketed under the name Genioplast Pellet 345, which helps to minimize thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) stiffness and improve elasticity.
Growing demand of paints and coatings in the automotive industry is expected to drive the market growth.
The outbreak of COVID-19 has laid out many problems for the automotive industry. Globally, policymakers are planning for a more widespread spread of the virus. Consequently, about 80 percent of automotive and related companies estimate that Coronavirus will directly affect their sales for 2020. 78 per cent of companies do not have adequate staff to operate a complete production line.
COVID-19 has been the biggest global influence on the automotive crisis, thus reducing the growth of the market. And COVID-19 outbreak is also predicted to occur in the whole year of 2020, and a few months in 2021.
