Key Market Insights 

"Growing applications of liquid silicone rubber driving the market growth"

The growing demand for liquid silicone rubber from the healthcare industry is driving the global liquid silicone rubber market. Liquid silicone rubber (LSR) has some great properties than its competitor materials such as high thermal stability, chemical stability, and electrical resistance. These properties made it the first choice in many industries such as automotive and electrical & electronics. In the medical field, the hygienic quality of LSR helps to reduce the spread of bacteria or fungi to the patient body, and its flexibility and softness ensure comfort to patient. Therefore, medical product designers are increasingly opting for LSR for the manufacturing of medical silicone parts on wider applications such as surgery, cardiology, oncology, orthopedics, and neurosurgery, etc. among others. 

Additionally, the growth of the food industry has positively impacted the demand for LSR. As the molded parts of LSR are odorless, tasteless, hydrophobic and resistant to bacteria, this made it suitable for use in the food industry. Food grade LSR is versatile and resistant to extreme temperature, making it an excellent choice in the manufacturing of kitchen products such as baking molds, ice-cube trays, O-rings, gaskets or other seals. 

Overall, the global liquid silicone rubber market was US$ 1.9 Bn in 2018 and expected to reach US$ 3.2 Bn by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2019 to 2027.
