Silicones

As Quoted In European Rubber Journal

US silicone demand will rise 4.2 percent annually through 2012. Silicone fluids will lead gains based on their tendency to boost the performance of cosmetics and toiletries. The relatively small medical market will outpace all others. Silicone conditioning agents and emollients will be the fastest growing applications.

This study analyzes the $3.2 billion US silicone industry. It presents historical demand data (1997, 2002 and 2007) and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by product (e.g., fluids, resins, elastomers, gels, foam), market (e.g., industrial, consumer, construction, medical), and application (e.g., vehicles and binders, elastomeric components, surfactants, polishes).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 37 industry competitors, including Bluestar Silicones, Evonik and Momentive Performance Materials.
