The Report of Silane Coupling Agents Market
Silane Coupling Agents Market The global silane coupling agents market was valued at USD 1.2 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 1.6 billion by 2026. growing at a cagr 5.5% from 2021 to 2026. The driving factors for the market is increasing penetration of silane coupling agents in the automotive transportation, building construction industry, energy chemical segment, and electrical electronics industry in the emerging economies, such as India, China, and the Middle-East, Thailand, Indonesia, Brazil, and Argentina.
Increased demand for silane coupling agents in paints coatings The Silane coupling agents are used in paints and coatings to enhance adhesion. Silanes help enhance UV and thermal stability.
surface strength, chemical resistance, and ability to protect against corrosion. They are majorly used for adhesion promotion as well as enhancing corrosion resistance and scratch resistance. Siloxane-alkyd, siloxane-epoxy, and siloxane-acrylic chemistries are used to achieve low viscosity, low VOC, high solids, metal adhesion, cement and quartz-like surfaces, low combustibility, high heat and UVtolerance in automotive, architectural, and marine antifouling coatings. Silanes are also used as the feedstock for a thin-coating industrial sol-gel process. Paints coatings find a wide range of applications in major end-use industries such as automotive construction, and aerospace. In the building and construction industry, paints and coatings are used to enhance the esthetic appeal of the structure. The growth of the building and construction industry, with the rising residential and non-residential construction across the globe has fueled the demand for paints and coatings.
Emerging applications in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries are expected to create new opportunities for silane coupling agent manufacturers. Silane coupling agents are widely used in dental fields. One of the most important aspects in the field of dentistry is adhesion. Adhesion can be enhanced through different mechanisms, most commonly by chemical and mechanical modifications of dental material surfaces. Chemical adhesion utilizes primers or bonding agents containing coupling agents Universal primers which are(mainly organophosphate-based monomers) and silane coupling agents are the most effective and most widely used for unifying dissimilar materials. Other than improving adhesion, silanes have many other applications in dentistry. They have been found also to enhance the mechanical properties of materials either by adhesion or by becoming a constituent of dental materials itself. Modern-day dental resin composites are composed of resin matrix, free radical initiator, inhibitor, filler particles
(lithium aluminosilicate, silica, or boron silicate), and silane coupling agents. Silane coupling agent is used to ensure durable bonding between the filler particles and the resin matrix. Development of new silane coupling agents, their optimization, and surface treatment methods are in progress to address the long-term resin bond durability. This development in turn will increase the consumption of silane coupling agents in the future. Development of next-generation antibiotics will also increase the need for silane coupling agents by pharmaceutical manufacturers.
