“Growing PDMS consumption in personal care, medical, automotive, construction industries is expected to drive the PDMS market.”
The polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) market size is estimated to be USD 4.0 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 5.2 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 6.0%. The increasing demand for PDMS from industries such as personal care, medical, automotive, construction and others owing to properties such as durability, dielectricity, adhesion, foam control, and others is one of the major factors driving the global PDMS demand during the forecast period.

Further, the growing preference of PDMS fluid-based products in place of hydrocarbon-based traditional products owing to its high resistant towards temperature extremes, oxidation, shear stresses, and chemicals are expected to drive this market. Also, the increasing PDMS demand from developing economies of the world is another factor driving the PDMS market. However, the regulatory policies for PDMS such as Food Contact Material (FCM) in Europe and Food and Durg Authority (FDA) are expected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.

“High-molecular weight is the fastest-growing type of PDMS.”
High-molecular is expected to be the fastest-growing type of PDMS between 2019 and 2024. High-molecular weight polydimethylsiloxane is used as a damping fluid in a variety of Environmental Sensing Devices (ESDs) such as accelerometers and rolamites. It is also used in soft lithography under biomedical microelectromechanical systems. The demand for high-molecular weight PDMS is driven majorly by its increasing consumption of hair care and skin care applications under the personal care industry.
