The growth of polydimethylsiloxane market is poised for a steady CAGR of more than 4% during 2019 – 2029. Although non-biodegradable, polydimethylsiloxane is disposable through advanced waste treatment facilities. This would remain a critical factor sustaining its demand throughout the projection period. Moreover, polydimethylsiloxane market is receiving tailwinds from heightened demand in cosmetics, industrial processes, and construction industry, finds a newFact.MR study.

“Adoption of polydimethylsiloxane by cosmetics and construction industries, and in industrial processes, has gained notable momentum, owing to its sustainable attributes. Industrial process in particular is witnessing widespread adoption in view of increased investments by governments in emerging nations,” concludes the Fact.MR report.
