Replacement of Hydrocarbon-Based Products with PDMS Fluid-Based Products is boosting PDMS Market

The Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) Market size is estimated at USD 4.0 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 5.2 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 6.0%.

Polydimethylsiloxane, or dimethylpolysiloxane or dimethicone, is a type of silicone oil with optically clear, inert, non-toxic, and non-flammable properties. PDMS is categorized into three types, namely, low-molecular weight, high-molecular weight, and ultra-high molecular weight based on their molecular weight, viscosities, and chemical compositions. The major applications of PDMS include medicines, cosmetics, hydraulic fluids, surfactants, coating, and domestic products, among others.

Growth of Polydimethylsiloxane Market Projected to Amplify During 2026

Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) is an inert, nonflammable and nontoxic silicon based organic polymer. Generally it is referred as dimethicone.  Polydimethylsiloxane is optically clear and viscous substance. The properties such as water repellency, low surface tension, low vapor pressure, oxidation resistance, anti-foaming, heat, resistance, heat stability, good dielectric properties and others makes PDMS a very useful substance in various industrial applications. These diverse set of properties of Polydimethylsiloxane are used in medicines, cosmetics, hydraulic fluids, surfactants, anti-foaming agents, coating, domestic products and others.
