Global Silicones Market Analysis and Global Outlook

  • Short-term (H2 2020): No major supply issues are likely to persist during H2 2020 due to lack of downstream demand from the major industries like oil and gas activities, construction and automotive
  • Long Term (2021-2022): The risk of supply shortage will continue to linger in the silicones market in the long term as capacity expansions announced by major suppliers are not significant enough. Any siloxane shutdown by a major supplier in the US or Europe can hamper supply in the market

 

Demand Market Outlook

  • Increasing demand of silicones for polyurethane-based product manufacturing in the construction and automotive sectors especially in developing regions like China, India, LATAM, etc., and also due to rising infrastructural growth and increasing auto sales is expected to drive the demand for silicones in the upcoming years
  • Demand from the US and Europe is expected to grow from the healthcare and medical applications and lightweight silicone applications in transportation and renewable energy sectors in the future

Industry Best Practice

Engagement models

  • Buyers in North America prefer contract pricing, as they are engaged in domestic sourcing of silicones. While it is partly spot and partly contract in Europe, spot pricing is the buyers' preference in APAC

Contract structures

Fixed Contract 

  • Length of contract: One year on average
  • Volume in contract: >1,000 MT/year

Multi Year Contract

  • Length of contract: 2–3 years (to establish long-term relationship in a highly matured market)

CPG Buyers' Preference

CPG players opt for domestic sourcing of silicones for their small volume procurement. Large volume buyers prefer engaging with global suppliers based out of the US or Europe owing to their surplus domestic capacities

Global Market Size-Silicones

  • APAC countries are expected to have high demand growth rates for silicones until 2022 driven by electronics, construction, and automobile sectors.
  • Demand growth for silicones in North America and Europe will come from healthcare applications like aesthetic implants and renewable energy sectors like windmill and solar applications

Global Silicone Market Overview

  • Volatile prices of silicon metal influence the silicone market price as it is the primary feedstock in silicone production. The other feedstock is methanol which is used in methylene chloride synthesis. However, the impact of methanol prices on silicones is relatively low. While feedstock costs have a greater impact on silicone prices in North America and APAC, utility costs decide the silicone market price in Europe owing to tax levies.
  •  With the top four suppliers occupying more than 50 percent of the regional market share, the north America silicones market is highly consolidated.
  • Major exporters, like the US and European countries, export high quality silicones to the rest of the world.
  • The US exports its surplus silicones production to supply-deficit countries like Mexico. In 2016, China was the net importer of silicones from Japan and USA, owing to the supply crunch in the region.
