Segmentation Analysis

  • In 2021, the dimethylchlorosilanes segment dominated the market with the largest market share of 32% and market revenue of 1.79 billion.

Based on the product, the Chlorosilane market is categorized into methylchlorosilane, tetrachlorosilane, Chlorosilane, and dimethylchlorosilane. In 2021, the dimethylchlorosilane segment dominated the market with the largest market share of 32% and market revenue of 1.79 billion. The segment is fueled owing to the virtue of increasing preference among manufacturers of solar-grade silicone. Also, the increasing demand for direct synthesis reactions to produce solar-grade silicon boosts the market. A direct synthesis reaction takes place when silicon power and methyl chloride gas are combined. This reaction produces a mixture of different liquid silicones, which are subsequently distinguished using distillation. Dimethylchlorosilane is one of a variety of liquid silicones that are made on a big scale. During the forecast period, there is projected to be an increase in demand for dimethylchlorosilane to generate solar-grade silicon due to the growing usage of solar energy in various residential and commercial grid projects. Large-scale network grids are being installed by businesses to capture solar energy and convert it into electricity to supply power to numerous residential regions.

North America emerged as the largest market for the global Chlorosilane market, with a market share of around 31% and 1.73 billion of the market revenue in 2021.

  • In 2021, North America emerged as the largest market for the global Chlorosilane market, with a market share of around 31% and 1.73 billion of the market revenue. The market for Chlorosilane in the North American region has been expanding because solar cell makers are working harder to improve the region's solar photovoltaic cell efficiency. Over the forecast period, it is anticipated that rising solar photovoltaic installations in the region, along with intensive research and development efforts being made by solar system manufacturers to bring technological advancements to the current design and energy-generating capacity of solar photovoltaic cells, will create more growth opportunities for regional market expansion. The U.S. government's growing encouragement of the usage of solar systems through tax credits, loans, and subsidies should further strengthen the industrial landscape. The U.S. government has implemented tax benefit policies to encourage the use of solar systems, which in turn has increased the demand for chlorosilanes for solar-grade silicone application in the area. These policies include the Renewable Electricity Production Tax Credit (PTC), Investment Tax Credit (ITC), Residential Energy Credit, and the Modified Accelerated Cost-Recovery System (MACRS).
  • The Asia-Pacific market is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to the substantial development in the electronics industry. In Japan, China and India, the electronics industry is proliferating along with the increase in consumer electronics demand. The largest producer and user of chlorosilane was Japan. The regional business environment will be fueled by the presence of numerous well-established players in the solar industry with their fully integrated business operations in the nation to ensure an efficient supply chain and cost savings associated with the procurement of raw materials and logistics.
