Some of the major players operating in the global Silicone additives are

Dow Corning, Evonik, Shin-Etsu, Momentive Performance Materials, BYK Additives Elkem etc.

TechSci Research performed primary as well as exhaustive secondary research for this study. Initially, TechSci Research sourced a list of Silicone additives manufactures globally. Subsequently, TechSci Research conducted primary research surveys with the identified companies. While interviewing, the respondents were also enquired about their competitors. Through this technique, TechSci Research was able to include manufactures and suppliers that could not be identified due to the limitations of secondary research. TechSci Research analysed type, form, processing, application and regional presence of all major Silicone additives manufacturers across the globe.

TechSci Research calculated the market size for the global Silicone additives using a bottom-up approach, where manufacturers’ value data for different function of (defoamers, wetting & dispersing agents, rheology modifiers, surfactants, lubricating agents & others), Silicone additives was recorded as well as forecast for the future years was made. TechSci Research sourced these values from industry experts and company representatives, and externally validated through analyzing historical sales data of respective manufactures to arrive at the overall market size. Various secondary sources such as company annual reports, white papers, investor presentations and financial reports were also used by the TechSci Research.


Key Target Audience:

  • Global Silicone Additives manufacturers
  • Research organizations and consulting companies
  • Organizations, associations and alliances related to Silicone additives
  • Government bodies such as regulating authorities and policy makers.
