The conductive silicone market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 6.12% over the forecast period to reach a market size of US$5.455 billion in 2026, from US$3.600 billion in 2019.

conductive silicone products and materials, which are known as sealants, adhesives, and other related products usually act as good conductors of electricity. These materials are being used in situations where Radio Frequency interfaces and Electromagnetic interfaces are present. It is also used in the prevention of the buildup of static charge in several applications. The market is expected to surge in the coming years, due to the rise in the demand for conductive silicone materials in various types of applications, such as telecom, medical, automotive, aerospace, and other electronic products. Various companies and firms have been making significant developments in the market. For instance, Exonic Polymers, one of the key players in the market, offers conductive silicone adhesives that are designed and developed to ensure superior conductivity and strong bonds. These trends and developments are expected to play a major role in the market growth, in the coming years. 

Growth in the automotive sector

The market is expected to surge in the coming years, due to the growth and rise in demand for conductive silicones in the automotive sector. According to the data given by the International Organisation of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, around 91.7 million vehicles were produced in 2019. The rise in the demand for electric vehicles is also expected to play a major role in the market growth. According to the data given by the International Energy Agency, total sales of electric cars were around 2.1 million in 2019, worldwide. Conductive silicone materials provide several characteristics, such as low viscosity, self-lubricating properties, high thermal stability, increased crack resistance, and other related properties. Major companies have been providing and offering conductive silicone materials to their customers. For instance, Momentive, one of the major players in the market, provides silicone elastomers for various applications, such as insulation, bonding, and sealing. These trends are expected to increase the market growth.

Latest Developments

With the rise in the demand for high-quality and advanced materials in different sectors, investment in the market will continue to surge at a significant rate.

  • In October 2020, NASA stated that the novel Master Bond MasterSil 151S, which is a two-part silicone system that would be used as a coating, sealant, and adhesive, had passed its low outgassing specifications. Under NASA's guidelines and specifications, the novel material had also retained its wider and superior electrical conductivity with a total volume of 0.004 ohm-cm at 75 degrees F. This is expected to enhance the market growth.
  • In July 2021, Dow, one of the key players in the market, announced that it would be carrying out several capacity expansion projects that had been intended to support the growth of its consumer solution sector. The company had been adding the capacity of its conductive silicon materials
