Silicone elastomers are made by combining reactive, straight-chained molecules with a cross-linking agent and reinforcing to produce a material with high mechanical characteristics (elasticity, absorption, tear strength). Linear polymers, reinforcing agents, a crosslinker, and a catalyst are used to make silicone elastomers. The Types of elastomers formed is determined by the viscosity and Types of the basic straight-chain molecule, as well as the processing temperature.
Silicone elastomers are employed in high-performance Applications, especially when conventional polymeric materials are expected to fail. When subjected to a broad range of temperatures (from -50°C to 250°C) or intense outdoor exposure, parts manufactured of silicone elastomer rubber offer extended durability and dependability (humidity, UV, Ozone). Their dielectric houses and thermal resistance are ideal to insulate and defend digital systems, which includes protection of excessive voltage lines.

The Global Silicone Elastomers Market has been fragmented based on types, applications and region. In terms of type, the Global Silicone Elastomers Market is categorized as Liquid Silicone Rubber, High Consistency Rubber, Fluorosilicone Rubber, Others. In terms of application, the market is categorized as Automotive, Healthcare, Electronics, Apparel, Medical Devices, Home Repair & Hardware, Construction, Others. Considering regions, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.

The Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic highlighted economic disparities, global interdependence, and governance challenges. Pandemics are isolated concerns for businesses and prospects for emerging patterns and vulnerabilities. COVID-19 has a moderate impact on the industry due to the simultaneous reduction of supply and demand. The COVID-19 pandemic caused a slight slowdown in market expansion. Once these sectors have recovered from the pandemic's effects, the market for other end-user industries is likely to restore its growth rate.

As per growth market reports industry analyst Sumitra Choudhary, “The expanding Automotive, Healthcare, Electronics, Apparel, Medical Devices industry are expected to contribute to the growth of the Global Silicone Elastomers Market.

The supply chain in developed regions has been accelerated by the addition of large suppliers, manufacturers, and distributors, the availability of raw materials, and the presence of integrated logistics. Silicone elastomers are produced by performing various steps and processes at manufacturing units. Special precautions are taken by producers while manufacturing silicone elastomers as an end product to prevent health issues among workers.
