London, England - Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global silicone elastomers market 2017-2021 report. This market research report also lists 12 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period. According to the research analysis, the global silicone elastomers market is one of the growing markets. The market is oligopolistic in nature. Key vendors in the market have integrated their businesses in the backward direction in a cost-effective way. The companies are engaged in extending their product portfolios with increasing R&D cost. For instance, companies such as Momentive, Wacker Chemie, The Dow Chemical Company, Shin-Etsu Chemical and Reiss Manufacturing are involved in the backward integration of the operations. Momentive manufactures silicone raw material to produce elastomers. “The global silicone elastomers market is expected to grow at a significant pace during the forecast period, owing mainly to high demand from the construction and automobile segments. Increasing demand from the cosmetic end-user segment and healthcare industry have also triggered the demand for silicone elastomers. The competitive environment in the market might further intensify over the next five years as vendors are competing based on factors such as the cost of production, innovation in products, price, operational cost, research and development cost, and product quality,” says Kshama Upadhyay, a lead plastics, polymers, and elastomers analyst from Technavio.
