Silane coupling agents are compounds whose end molecules have functional groups, which can react and result in bond formation with organic and inorganic compounds. Commercially, silane coupling agents are commercially available with different functional groups, such as expoy, vinyly, acryloxy, amino and many other groups, which enable various functions of silane coupling agent compound to be used in applications, such as resin modification and surface treatment. With the ability of forming bonds with organic and inorganic materials, the silane coupling agent is a material of choice that provides improved mechanical strength to a composite material.
Also, silane coupling agent has exceptional resulting properties, such as better heat resistance, water resistance, improved weather ability and improved durability of resin. Pertaining to these exceptional properties, silane coupling agent finds its adoption in different applications in industries such as chemical, automotive, electrical, energy and construction. The chemical industry predominantly adopted silane coupling agents for improving transparency and viscosity during mixing and kneading. In the construction industry, silane coupling agents are generally used to improve the strength and durability of exterior walls, buildings and other structures for a long term.
The automotive segment uses silica-reinforced tyres with relatively high molecular weight, which can withstand with the challenging weather conditions. The chemical and automotive industries are expected to remain the major industries using silane coupling agents for their applications. Most of the key players are working in the formulation of silane coupling agents, who hold the maximum market share. Over the next ten years, the increasing activities to develop new products coupled with growing implementation of novel technologies for accomplishing better operating efficiency and productivity have facilitated the competitive universe.
