Rising investments in the defense and aerospace sector, especially in the emerging countries would result in escalating the demand for products like military aircraft, defense electronics, medical devices, etc. For example, the budget for Indian defense sector accounted for USD 62.8 billion in 2018-19 while China’s defense budget amounted USD 175 billion which has increased by 8.1%. Other countries such as Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, and South Korea are also increasing their defense spending in the recent years owing to instabilities in disputed regions such as the South China sea. Such developments are likely to boost product demand to be used in the defense equipment manufacturing in coming years. Other industries like automotive, health care, electronics, etc. where the product is used are also growing significantly and will propel the product market growth in the forecast period.
Specialty silicones are finest products with multi-purpose application which makes it expensive. Specialty silicone elastomer’s major limitation is its chemical compatibility and are not suitable for certain applications. Moreover, specialty silicone used in skincare products are harmful for the skin. These issues could have a considerable effect on the specialty silicone market and could hamper the industry growth during the forecast period.
