Silicone additives are used in various industries such as plastic & composites, paints & coating and textile industries due to their superior properties such as low surface tension, chemical inertness, and enhanced softness. It is majorly used in plastics & composites industry owing to chemical resistance, mold release, and wear resistance. Increasing demand from the automotive, aerospace & defense and marine industries is driving the market growth due to growing use of lightweight components to impart efficiency. Growing use in the furniture and packaging industry is likely to fuel the product demand. Silicone additives usage is increasing in paints & coatings industry due to various properties such as leveling and dispersing properties. Since they offer high-temperature resistance, ultraviolet resistance, durability, and adhesion, construction, and architectural industry is the major end user of the products. These additives perform various functions such as anti-foaming, rheology modifiers, leveling, and lubricating agents. Due to its anti-foaming property, it is preferred in various industries including paints & coatings, food & beverages, and paper industry. Silicone additives are being increasingly used in the automotive industry as lubricant agents for polishing and dressing.
