Vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane is a colourless, clear liquid, with a molecular weight of about 25,000. It is employed in addition cure systems, particularly in 2-part addition cure silicone elastomers. This chemical compound is highly preferred in various industries, owing to its properties such as low volatility; dirt, water, and heat resistance.
The global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market was valued at US$ 3,023.0 million in 2017, and is expected to register a CAGR of over 4%. The first five-year cumulative revenue (2017–2021) is projected to be US$ 5,264.4 Mn, which is expected to increase rather significantly over the latter part of the five-year forecast period.
Wide application of vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane in industries including electronics and electrical, construction, paints and coatings, and others, due to its less volatile and non-toxic nature, and its superior adhesive properties is expected to boost growth of the global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market. Vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane is also a key raw material used for making silicone rubber. Widening applications of silicone rubber in automotive, healthcare, and apparels industries, due to its tensile strength, elasticity, enhanced tear strength, good thermal conductivity, and excellent resistance to high temperatures is expected to indirectly drive growth of the global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market over the forecast period. In addition, vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane is a non-toxic compound, which makes it easy to store, as well as, transport, which is further expected to enhance demand of the target market.
However, high cost of raw materials such as silicon, and tetramethyldivinylsiloxane, results in high price of end product, and its moderately harmful effect on humans are factors expected to hamper growth of the global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market over the forecast period.
On basis of application, adhesives segment is expected to account for majority share of the global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market, owing to high adoption of room temperature vulcanizing two components (RTV-2) in automotive, electrical & electronic units, power units, LED lighting modules, and communication modules. Room temperature vulcanizing two components are largely preferred for insulation purpose, since these are highly pourable, and spreadable compounds, that retain flexibility even at high temperatures.
The global vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane market is segmented on the type, application, and region. On the basis of region, the target market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.
