Global Polydimethylsiloxane Market: Trends and Opportunities
The desirable chemical and physical properties of polydimethylsiloxane such as low surface tension, oxidative stability, thermal resistance and easy to spread are increasing the demand of polydimethylsiloxane across a number of end-use industries. The increasing use of polydimethylsiloxane across different industry verticals is propelling growth of the global polydimethylsiloxane market. Further, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recognized polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) as a vital agent to enhance productivity of skin care products. Which resulted in increased awareness of the polydimethylsiloxane among the end users. The increased awareness of benefitting properties of polydimethylsiloxane for skin care products is fostering growth of the global polydimethylsiloxane market.
However, polydimethylsiloxane is a non-bio degradable material, and increasing restrictions from government bodies on the use of these materials owing to their adverse effect on environment is a major factor restraining growth of the global polydimethylsoloxane market. Nevertheless, technological advancements in disposal techniques of non-biodegradable material could address some restraints. Moreover, the increasing use of polydimethylsiloxane in the food and beverage industry due to its anti-caking and antifoaming properties is a major growth driver of the global polydimethylsiloxane market.
