Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) is the simplest member of a polymer of the silicone family. It is produced by hydrolyzing dimethyldichlorosilane (Me2SiCl2) that is produced from high-purity silicone dioxide (SiO2) and dichloromethane (Ch2Cl2) by the Muller-Rochow reaction. There are three types of PDMS that are bifurcated depending on its molecular weight as low molecular weight PDMS, high molecular weight PDMS, and ultra-high molecular weight PDMS. The low molecular weight PDMS is used in the healthcare sectors for the breast implants, and other applications include its use in hydraulic fluids, anti-foaming agents, and also in lubricants. The high molecular weight PDMS, on the other h and , are soft rubber or resins used in sealants, and caulks. These properties of PDMS are contributing to the favorable and significant expansion of the PDMS market around the globe.
The polydimethylsiloxane market is projected to grow in the forecast period owing to improvements in the quality of polydimethylsiloxane coupled with the substitution of hydrocarbon-based products with polydimethylsiloxane fluid-based products. The growing applications of polydimethylsiloxane in various industries have boosted the growth of the polydimethylsiloxane market. However, the high cost production of polydimethylsiloxane might restrict the growth of the polydimethylsiloxane market. On the other h and , the increasing construction of airports in developing countries and the growing demand for polydimethylsiloxane in the healthcare industry is likely to showcase growth opportunities for the polydimethylsiloxane market during the forecast period.
