The global silanes market is expected to reach USD 2.15 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The use of silane in various end-user industries as a cross-linker and coupling agent has fueled the product demand.
Silane, a versatile silicone compound, is used in coupling, crosslinking, adhesion promotion, and surface modification. It imparts tear resistance, abrasion resistance, and tear propagation resistance properties to rubbers. Rubbers used in automotive tires, shoe soles, and hoses are manufactured using silanes.
It is used as an adhesion promoter in coatings to improve their abrasion resistance, UV resistance, and flow behavior. The rising demand for corrosion protection coatings has propelled the silanes market in the paints & coatings application in the recent past.
Asia Pacific dominated the global silane market in 2016 and is likely to maintain its leading position over the forecast period. The significant growth of the paints & coatings market, especially in China, has propelled the demand for silane over the past few years. Furthermore, increased production of rubber and plastic goods in Asia Pacific has boosted this demand.
