Automotive Silicone Market Report 2022: Use in Innovative Airbag Designs Presents Opportunities for Growth

Dublin, Feb. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Automotive Silicone Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Product (Elastomers, Adhesives & Sealants, Resins, Fluids, Gels), by Application, by Region, and Segment Forecasts, 2022-2030" report has been added to's offering.

The global automotive silicone market size is expected to reach USD 587.70 million by 2030. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 3.3% from 2022 to 2030. Growing awareness about lightweight materials used in automotive production is expected to boost demand for silicones.

Automotive silicones find applications in vehicle interiors, exteriors, electrical systems, and suspension systems. The product's superior properties make it highly compatible with rubber, adhesives, sealants, and coatings, increasing its preference over other products. The increase in automobile production is the main driving factor for the growth of this market.

Strict environmental regulations regarding the use of electric and solar vehicles to reduce pollution are expected to boost the growth of the automotive silicone industry with the rise of green vehicles around the world. In addition, technological advances, modernization, and rapid upgrading have driven the demand for automotive electronic assistance systems. Therefore, the increasing use of these systems should have a positive impact on industrial expansion.

In the automotive silicone industry, there is an increasing trend towards innovative airbag designs with silicone-based rubber fabric coatings and seam seals. The integrity of the airbag design is enhanced with silicone rubber fabric coatings and seam seals that enhance impact protection and occupant safety. Automotive silicones are used in a wide range of applications due to their favorable properties such as resistance to corrosion, chemicals, heat, and UV rays. Their ability to reduce overall vehicle weight through application in specific parts of the vehicle is expected to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Compared to other rubbers, silicone rubber has higher production costs, which is due to the complex processing. Silicone rubber must be further processed for effective use. Such processing requirements lead to higher production costs. However, the growing demand for silicone rubber has led companies to take eager steps to meet this demand. Several companies have formed partnerships to expand their product portfolio and production capacity.
