Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) is a group of polymeric organosilicon compounds, which are commonly referred to as silicones. Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) is a clear, non-toxic, non-flammable, colorless, and viscous liquid that is insoluble in water and ethanol. PDMS is a widely used silicon-based organic polymer. It is used as elastomers, antifoaming agents, ant-caking agents, and lubricants in industries such as food & beverages, personal care, and pharmaceuticals.
Physical and chemical properties of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) such as high and low temperature stability, low surface tension, oxidative stability, and spreadability are major factors driving demand for polydimethylsiloxane. Furthermore, polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) is recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a protective agent in topical skin care products.
Key players operating in the global polydimethylsiloxane market include The Dow Chemical Company, Wacker Chemie AG, Elkem Silicones, Hubei Xin Sihai Chemical Co., Momentive, Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Alfa Aesar, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Merck KGaA, and Fisher Scientific International Inc.
Key players are strategically investing in mergers, acquisitions, and product development activities to enhance their market share and retain dominant position in the market. For instance, Hexion Specialty Chemicals, a global supplier of thermoset resins merged with Momentive which is manufacturer of quartz and silicones-based specialty materials in 2010.
Furthermore, in January 2018, Pennsylvania State University discovered 3D printing, which improved cell adhesion and strength of PDMS polymer. The mix of two different polymer forms can switch manufacturing of silicone parts from molding, casting, and spin coating of simple forms to 3D printing of complex geometries.
