Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
Silicones are synthetic high performance polymers made from silicon and oxygen, two of the most common elements found on the surface of the earth. Silicones are one of the most versatile polymers in existence today. These exist in various forms, ranging from fluids, resins, gels to tough, stiff, and strong elastomers. These are stable and inert compounds and are widely used in almost all the modern industries today, ranging from automotive and transportation, and electrical and electronics to medical, and personal care and chemical industry. The unique and useful properties of silicones such as low thermal conductivity, low chemical reactivity, low toxicity, thermal stability, etc. make products made from these materials stronger, more aesthetic, more stable, user friendly, and durable.
This study estimates the global market of silicones by the end of 2017. Asia-Pacific dominates the silicone market, accounting for 40.1% of the global market in 2011. It is the fastest growing region for the silicone market both in terms of production and consumption. The rising living standards, growing household incomes and an expanding middle class in the region are fuelling demand for high-quality products containing silicones. China is the most attractive market in Asia-Pacific with enormous potential and massive growth opportunities.
