Report Overview

The North America silicone market size was estimated at USD 4.28 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.6% from 2023 to 2030. The market is poised for growth due to increasing demand across multiple industries, such as automotive, construction, electronics, healthcare, and consumer goods. Silicone's versatility and wide range of applications, including sealants, adhesives, coatings, and elastomers, make it a sought-after material. In addition, the market is driven by the growing emphasis on sustainability, as silicone offers eco-friendly properties, recyclability, durability, and low toxicity. Technological advancements in silicone manufacturing processes and product innovations are further contributing to market expansion, enabling improved performance, and opening doors to new applications over the forecast period.

U.S. Silicone market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The U.S. silicone market is expected to perform moderately owing to limited opportunities by market maturity of both manufacturing industries in general and the use of silicones. However, continuous product innovation and ongoing technological developments are expected to promote the application of silicone in emerging markets, such as electric vehicles (EVs) and health & personal care, which, in turn, is expected to fuel the market growth over the forecast period. Moreover, suppliers continue gaining market share through value-added product development and creating inroads into applications that conventionally use other materials.

Several states in the U.S., including California, New Jersey, Washington, and Louisiana, are using tax credits, exemptions, and rebates to fuel the procurement of EVs. New Jersey and Washington exempt EVs' sale and use tax, while California offers rebates to plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and other light-duty zero-emission vehicles. These tax incentive programs implemented by different states in the U.S. are likely to boost the market for EVs, which, in turn, is projected to fuel the consumption of silicone over the forecast period. The silicone market in the U.S. is witnessing significant growth and playing a pivotal role in various industries. Silicone, a versatile polymer known for its exceptional properties, is finding widespread applications across the country.
