This study examines the US market for silicones by product (e.g., fluids, elastomers, resins, and gels), market (e.g., industrial, consumer, construction, and medical), and function (e.g., adhesives and sealants, elastomeric components, paints and coatings, emollients and conditioning agents, surfactants, lubricants and greases, defoamers, and polishes).

Historical data for 2007, 2012, and 2017 and forecasts for 2022 are provided for silicone demand in current dollars for each of the products, markets, and functions. Volume data (in pounds) are also provided.

For the purposes of this study, silicones are defined as polymers of silicon and oxygen. Siloxanes used as raw materials for silicones are not included, although siloxanes used as silicone products themselves (as in personal care product formulations) are included. Silanes, including chlorosilane intermediates and silane coupling agents, are not defined as silicone polymers and are thus excluded.
