The plastics & composites segment is the largest application segment of the silicone additives market. Silicones are used in the plastics industry as additives to improve the processing and surface properties of plastics as well as thermoplastic materials. Silicone additives help enhance the antifoaming, rheology modification, substrate wetting, and leveling properties of plastics and composites. These additives also help improve the quality and features of finished products. The plastics & composites segment accounts for a major share of the silicone additives market. Silicone additives are often used to improve the wear or abrasion resistance property of products as well as to reduce noises generated by the motion of plastic parts. These characteristics are achieved by reducing the friction coefficient of materials with the use of silicone additives.

The defoamers segment is the largest function segment of the silicone additives market. Defoamers are chemical additives that are used in various applications, such as paints & coatings and food & beverages. They prevent the formation of foam during pigment milling, paint manufacturing, and plastic & composite manufacturing processes, and avoid any resultant defects that might occur due to an air void. The increasing demand for qualitative coatings is driving the growth of the defoamers segment.
