Fluorosilicone Market Insights
The global fluorosilicone market is projected to witness a significant growth over the forecast period. This growth is primarily attributed to growing M&A activities coupled with increasing technological advancements across the globe. These advancements are made in order to cater to the industry standard in terms of reliability and durability.
Fluorosilicone combines the most favorable properties of fluorocarbons & silicones and features improved performance capabilities. It provides protection against outdoor weathering, rigorous thermal cycling, and has exceptionally high/low-temperature service ability.
The low physical strength of fluorosilicone along with abrasion resistance makes it inappropriate for dynamic sealing. This, in turn, is likely to limit the market growth to a certain extent over the forecast period. Moreover, the advantages such as solvent resistance, oil resistance, extreme temperature performance, and resilience are further likely to propel the industry growth.
