DUBLIN, Jan. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ —

The “Silicone Film Market by Type (Silicone Film, Silicone Coated Film, and Silicone Release Liners), End-Use Industry, and Region (APAC, Europe, North America, Middle East & Africa, and South America) – Global Forecast to 2023″ report has been added to’s offering.

The market size of silicone film is estimated to be USD 794 million in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 1,087 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2018 to 2023.

The growth of the market is attributed to the high growth of end-use industries consuming silicone film. Another factor driving the market is the superior properties of silicone films. However, the high manufacturing cost is restraining the growth of the market. Also, stringent regulatory policies related to manufacturing and use of silicone film especially in medical devices is the major challenge, which, in turn, has affected the growth of the market.

The silicone release liners type segment is projected to register the higher CAGR during the forecast period.

Silicone release liners are expected to be the fastest-growing type of silicone film owing to their increasing demand in several end-use industries. Silicone is the most commonly used release coating material due to its ability to offer a number of desirable performance characteristics, such as a distinct silicon-oxygen bond, ultra-low surface energy, and high gas permeability. Silicone is used in release liners as it helps provide resistance to slip, moisture, and abrasion, improved adhesion, gloss, foam control, and anti-blocking properties. The use of silicone-based materials also increases the durability of release liners such as LDPE liners and HDPE liners.

Electronics to be the largest end-use industry of silicone film in terms of volume and value. 

The key properties of silicone films, such as hydrophobicity, high dielectric breakdown, resistance to high and low temperatures enable them to be used in critical and harsh environments in the electronics end-use industry. Silicone films are used in various applications such as smart sensors, automotive electronics, actuators, photovoltaics, and generators.

APAC is projected to be the largest silicone film market, in terms of volume, during the forecast period.

APAC is projected to register rapid growth in the silicone film market due to the increasing demand from end-use industries, namely, electronics, medical, packaging, and others. It is also the fastest-growing silicone film market in terms of both production and demand. Higher domestic demand along with easy availability of raw materials and low-cost labor make APAC the most preferred destination for the silicone film manufacturers.

Manufacturers focus on this region to gain a significant market share and increase profitability. These factors are attracting companies to adopt expansions and R&D in this region. China and India are among the fastest-growing economies, globally. The presence of developing manufacturing sector in these economies is projected to boost the silicone film market in the region.

The report profiles several leading players of the silicone film market that include Wacker Chemie (Germany), Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (Japan), Elkem (Norway), DowDuPont (US), Momentive Performance Materials (US), Loparex (US), Toray Advanced Film (Japan), Siliconature (Italy), Polyplex (India), Sappi Limited (South Africa).
