Market Overview

Silicone has frequently been used as an automotive material. Silicone is used to manufacture gaskets used in automotive engines, transmissions, and other applications. Automotive spark plug wires are insulated by multiple layers of silicone to prevent sparks from jumping to adjacent wires, causing misfires. Silicone tubing is sometimes used in automotive intake systems.

 

Additionally, silicone compounds such as silicone rubber are used as coatings and sealants for airbags; the high strength of silicone rubber makes it an optimal adhesive/sealant for high impact airbags. Recent technological advancements allow the convenient use of silicone in combination with thermoplastics to provide improvements in scratch and mar resistance and lowered coefficient of friction.  

 

The global Automobile Silicone market size was worth USD YY million in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD YY million by 2026, at a CAGR of YY% during the forecast period.

Market Dynamics

Rising demand for lightweight materials in the automotive industry and increasing automotive industry worldwide are the major factors driving the market growth. Lightweight metals may be used in the vehicle in both wrought and cast forms. Aluminum, in the form of stamped sheet, has the potential to be used extensively in vehicle structures and closures. Lightweight materials are essential for boosting the fuel economy of modern cars while maintaining their safety and performance. Because it takes less energy to accelerate a lighter car than a heavier one, lightweight materials offer more potential for both automakers and auto buyers. Not only are lightweight vehicles energy efficient, but they also enhance performance.

 

Companies are concentrating on the development of raw materials. For instance, in January 2018, New facility in Detroit's Corktown has focused on development of lightweight metals and composite materials. Volkswagen Group's Audi brings R&D work from Germany to Detroit. Adding to this, VW's Audi unit is partnering with Lockheed Martin and Carpenter Technologies on developing lighter gears and gear components, said Roman Landes, lead engineer for materials for steel and specialty alloys at Audi.

 

Growing adoption of EV and fluctuations in raw material prices are the key restraints hindering the growth of the market globally.
