Scope of Global Silicon Market Reports –
Silicon is a chemical element that is present in sand and glass and which is the best known semiconductor material in electronic components. Silicones are high-performance oligomers or polymers exhibiting various physical forms ranging from solids to water-thin liquids, semi-viscous pastes, greases and oils. Silicones display a multitude of unique properties such as lubricate, seal, bond, release, defoam and encapsulate. Silicones conduct electricity and do not harden, crack, peel, crumble, rot or brittle with age. Due to these physical properties the silicones are widely used in transportation and automobile industry. These are also used in white ware ceramics such as porcelain, and in traditional quartz-based soda-lime glass and many other specialty glasses. Silicon is used for electronic devices because it is an element with very special properties. One of its most important properties is that it is a semiconductor. This means that it conducts electricity under some conditions and acts as an insulator under others. advanced Silicon technology showcased advanced memory and system logic devices. In addition, the silicon offer multiple advantages to power circuit designers, but at the same time suffers from limitations that are inherent to silicon material properties such as low bandgap energy low thermal conductivity and switching frequency limitations.

CHT gains access to North America with ICM Silicones Group purchase
Oct 06, 2017: - ICM Silicones Group and CHT Group are about to take the next step in silicone compounding. The firms will combine to make a significant Tier 2 player in the silicones space now that CHT finalized a deal to acquire ICM and its group companies, including QSi and ACC, from its private equity owner Century Park Capital Partners. This is probably one of the best fits that said. However, the CHT's map, they had very little presence in the U.S. and now they have access in a big way to the U.S. market. They can funnel into the U.S. in a very effective way and on top of that they get a different technology base from ICM Silicones Group. There is very little overlap so the fit is perfect. The global footprint for a custom compounder is unique in the industry said Ken Kemerer, ICM chief operating officer. Taking four or five independent chemical/silicone sites and merging them into one organization they have over the last three years and getting it ready for an opportunity like this to use those synergies to grow even faster with CHT. On top of that, ICM has invested more than $600,000 to expand its laboratory capabilities for research and development. Phil McDermott, ICM vice president of technology said its headquarters in Michigan received about $400,000 to extend its lab to 2,300 square feet and the ACC site in Bridgwater received a $200,000 project, also geared toward expanding its R&D capabilities.
Global Silicon Market Dynamics –
Rising product demand from the electronics sector, owing to its high thermal stability and resistance to weathering, ozone, moisture, and UV radiation, is estimated to drive the silicon market. Growing demand for lightweight materials in the automotive industry and increasing R&D activities for product innovation are projected to propel overall industrial growth in the years to come. According to the world Energy in 2018, global electricity demand grew at 2.1% per year twice the rate of primary energy demand. However, the high production cost of silicone elastomers, owing to high raw material and processing costs, is estimated to hamper the market growth. According to the Health World Organization (WHO) in 2017, the chemical industry coatings invested 51 billion in R&D, the largest chemical R&D spend with an investment of 14.6 billion followed by the US with a 12.1 and a 6.9 billion investment .Therefore, manufacturers of medical devices are seeking newer technologies to help reduce the growth of microorganisms on their devices. For this purpose, additives known as antimicrobials or biocides are being used. Antimicrobial silicone elastomers are used for enhancing the performance of end products by reducing microbial contamination of elastomers. The growth of microbes can harm the end products and can cause foul smell, discoloration, and formation of fungus in many medical device applications such as wound drains and catheters. Antimicrobial silicone elastomer controls the growth of microbes in or on the human body. Therefore, the development of these elastomers is expected to provide new growth opportunities to the market.
Global Silicon Market Regional Analysis –
North America is estimated to be the leading silicone market during the forecast period. Rising demand for minimally invasive surgeries and the presence of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure in this region is estimated to be favorable factors for the market growth. According to the World Energy (WE) in energy-efficient more than 76% of all U.S. electricity use and more than 40% of all U.S. energy use and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are used to provide comfortable, well-lit, residential and commercial buildings and to provide space conditioning and lighting for industrial buildings reduce this energy use by 2030.
Also, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to experience rapid growth during the forecast period due to the rise in demand for automobiles, portable electronics, and solar panels in the region, especially in developing countries such as China and India. According to the automotive industry in 2019, the automobile industry saw its worst-ever half-yearly performance as sales dived 17.08 % to 11,736,976 units. The passenger vehicles segment saw an overall decline in sales of 23.56 % at 1,333,251 units in this period. In addition, rising renewable energy market and rapid electric vehicle penetration is creating lucrative growth opportunities for the silicone market in Asia-Pacific. Moreover, the rapidly developing automotive sector in China with low manufacturing costs is estimated to fuel the regional market.
