Automotive Silicone Market size is forecast to reach $12.1 billion by 2025, after growing at a CAGR of 6.22% during 2020-2025. With rise in the consumption of silicone solutions across automotive interiors and exteriors, as well as a whole host of mass transit interiors, the Automotive Silicone market is witnessing an increase in demand. Growing recent advancements have led to several new kinds of silicone tires that not only improve functionality but are also eco-friendly, owing to this the market demand for Automotive Silicone during the forecast period will grow.
Type – Segment Analysis
Elastomers segment holds the largest market share in the Automotive Silicone market. Elastomers include hardness, tensile strength (resistance to break under tension) and compression set. Other elastomers characteristics include excellent bacteria resistance and hydrophobicity, meaning that it acts as a water repellent. Food grade elastomers is well-suited for consumer products manufacturing applications. Highly versatile and possessing the ability to withstand extreme temperatures. elastomers are used primarily in belts and hoses, bellows, and gaskets. At the separation between engine compartment and the interior, elastomers are used for sound management. Inside the car, they are used in floors, instrument panel skins, instrument panels for soft touch, gaskets for side mirrors, and among others.

Application – Segment Analysis
Interior & Exterior segment has been the primary market for Automotive Silicone. Silicone rubber delivers the strength, resistance and durability required for reliable automotive applications. As consumers demand a boost in power and performance, the heat increase that is generated is a factor that engineers must consider and manage, and this is where a quality engineering specialist comes into play. Automotive manufacturers rely heavily on the quality and performance of rubber materials and, with increasing heat present in new vehicles, silicone rubber comes into its own, offering the perfect solution. Due to the temperature rise, there has been an increase in silicone usage being used in new vehicles as EPDM gets replaced, due to its inferior temperature performance (140°C max).
Geography – Segment Analysis
APAC has dominated the Automotive Silicone market with a share of more than xx%, followed by North America and Europe. Countries such as India, China, among others in Asia are witnessing high growth in the aviation and automotive industries. According to OICA, APAC automotive sales witnessed a growth of over 6.52% during 2012-2018, with South East Asian countries having huge potential to grow. Silicones are high-performance polymers that exhibit properties of both inorganic and organic compounds. Silicones have a multitude of characteristics including heat resistance, cold resistance, weatherability, water repellency, defoaming properties, adhesiveness, releasability and dielectric properties.
Drivers – Automotive Silicone Market
Growing demand for lightweight vehicles
Rising demand for lightweight materials in the automotive industry, favoring market growth of Automotive Silicone. Silicones make cars safer, more reliable and more comfortable in many ways. They are also used upstream in various manufacturing processes, such as tire demolding, and they enter into consumable products such as lubricants where they enhance performance and increase the durability of engines. Silicones also contribute to weight reductions and lower emissions. In short, they play an essential role in improving practically all aspects of manufacturing in the automotive industry.
Implementation of Stringent Environment Regulations
Governments globally are focusing on giving boost to the electric and solar vehicles on road to lower down pollution. By increasing more and more eco-friendly vehicles the market for automotive silicone market will grow. For an example Tata Motors launched Hybrid and electric Starbus from manufacturing facility in Pune under its zero-emission mass transport solution. Owing to this, Governments regulations will indirectly promote the automotive silicone market.
