Demand Rises in Silicone Sealants Market

The silicone sealants market is expected to reach USD 3.80 billion by 2026, according to a report by Reports and Data. This can be associated with increasing demand from construction industries globally. Based on statistics, increasing demand for the product in the construction industry owing to the characteristics of silicone sealants as compared to organic sealants including polysulfide, polyurethane, and acrylic are expected to be the fundamental driver for the market growth during the forecast period. However, high volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emission correlated with silicone sealants and rising consumer awareness for environment safety is expected to restrain growth.

Key participants include Dow Corning Corp., Wacker Chemie AG, Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Tremco Inc., 3M Co., Bostik Co., H.B. Fuller, Sika Group, KGaA, Huntsman International LLC, Henkel AG & Co. , Mapei U.K. Ltd., Gardner-Gibson Inc., Royal Adhesives & Sealants, Dow Automotive Systems and American Sealants.
