Chlorosilane Market size for Solar Grade Silicone to exceed $29.5bn by 2028

  • Published Date: April 27, 2022

Chlorosilane market size for solar grade silicone is set to surpass USD 29.5 billion by 2028, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Booming adoption of solar energy in residential, commercial, and government sectors is one of the significant reasons attributing towards market expansion. As, solar energy offers many remarkable benefits, such as clean source of energy, conservation of the deposits of fossil fuels. Additionally, it has other conventional sources of energy and environmental benefits including reduced greenhouse gas emission and reduced effects of global warming. Favorable regulatory scenario by governments of different countries is expected to provide a momentum to the solar energy sector growth.

Rapid industrialization is likely to boost the market statistics

Chlorosilane market for solar grade from trichlorosilanes segment is projected to register a CAGR of 22.5% through 2028. Trichlorosilane is used as a primary material to produce silane coupling agent, Thus, rising demand for silane coupling agent is predicted to propel the requirement for trichlorosilane across the globe. Trichlorosilanes have been used for manufacturing solar grade silicone over the past several years owing to its increasing use in the Siemens process which is majorly used for production of polysilicon.

Rapid rise in energy demand due to industrialization and urbanization is driving the need for sustainable energy resources in developed nations like, the U.S., Germany, and Japan. Thus, the governments are constantly focusing on limiting the dependency and use of fossil fuels for energy generation and control environmental pollution. These factors have increased the need for renewable energy sources such as solar energy, which in turn boost the demand for solar PV.
