Sealants & Caulks

US sealant and caulk demand will rise at an improved rate of 2.9 percent annually through 2012. Gains will be driven by recoveries in the residential building and nonbuilding construction markets, and improved prospects for motor vehicles and aircraft. High performance materials such as silicones and polyurethanes will lead gains.

This study analyzes the $3.2 billion US sealant and caulk industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by raw material (e.g., silicones, polyurethanes, butyl rubber, acrylics, fillers, carriers), type (e.g., bituminous, silicone, elastomer, polyurethane, acrylic, polysulfide), and market (e.g., construction, motor vehicles, machinery).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 28 major players, including RPM, Momentive Performance Materials and Dow Corning.
