Dimethyldichlorosilane market forecast at $2.4 billion by 2032

Pune, India – The dimethyldichlorosilane market is expected to expand its roots at a promising CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period. The global market holds an estimated revenue of US$ 1.19 Billion in 2022 and is likely to cross US$ 2.48 Billion by the end of 2032 according to Future Market Insights.

Dimethyldichlorosilane (Si(CH3)2Cl2) is a tetrahedral organo-silicon compound that is a colorless liquid at room temperature and it reacts with water to provide a jump to linear and cyclic silicon oxide chains. It is synthesized on an industrial scale and it works as a precursor to dimethyl silicone, and polysilane compounds, directly processing and synthesizing the dimethyldichlorosilane.

Demand for dimethyldichlorosilane is increasing due to the rising demand for silicon that works as a sealant for aircraft and electric motors. The sales of dimethyldichlorosilane go up as the green tires gain popularity in the global market because of the better grip on wet surfaces and hold better rolling resistance.

The increasing construction activity and the requirement for aesthetically pleasing corporate buildings require the use of large volumes of glass. In order to prevent the adsorption of micro-particles on glass, dimethyldichlorosilane coating is applied to glass.

Given the high-volume requirement of glass used in a multitude of industries such as automobiles, buildings, as well as souvenirs, the dimethyldichlorosilane market is expected to witness growth in the coming future. In addition, the use of dimethyldichlorosilane as sealants for electric motors and aircraft engines is also expected to aid the growth in the demand for dimethyldichlorosilane.

Further, the growing concern regarding automotive pollution as well as fast-depleting fossil fuel reserves is one of the common pain points which is expected to encourage automobile manufacturers to switch to green tires in their automobiles. This is likely to boost the market for dimethyldichlorosilane as dimethyldichlorosilane is the primary raw material used for the manufacture of green tires, fueling the sales of dimethyldichlorosilane.

One of the major deterrents which are adversely impacting the growth of the dimethyldichlorosilane market is the high cost of raw materials/chemicals required for the industrial-scale synthesis of dimethyldichlorosilane.

This increase in raw material costs is a result of fluctuating exchange rates and also environmental protection measures due to which regulation and restriction of chemicals used, including dimethyldichlorosilane by various governments across the world. This pushes the demand for dimethyldichlorosilane.

Which is the Key Dimethyldichlorosilane Market?
On the regional front, Asia Pacific is the most dominant market for dimethyldichlorosilane. The demand for dimethyldichlorosilane is primarily from the Indian and Chinese markets. The demand for dimethyldichlorosilane is induced by the fact that there are no stringent regulations for the production and storage of the compound.

Further, the huge market demand for dimethyldichlorosilane by the end users is also stimulating the growth of the market. One of the major factors which are fueling the growth of the market in the Asia Pacific is the booming construction industry and the migration of multinational conglomerates from western nations to Asian countries owing to cheap labor costs.

Europe is the second most dominant market for dimethyldichlorosilane products due to the presence of a large number of automotive manufacturers in the region.
