Talking About The Development of The Silicone Industry

- Jun 22, 2019-


From the 18th century, the invention of silicone rubber to today's silica industry boom, the silicone industry has experienced a process from scratch, from simple to complex. Nowadays, silica gel manufacturers are springing up like mushrooms. Not only do they have established foreign companies that have been developed abroad for many years, but domestic emerging companies are also blooming everywhere. The classification of silica gel is also classified according to different methods. The application range is only applied to the aviation and military fields from the beginning. Now it is widely used in electrical and electronic, textile, automobile, machinery, leather and paper, metal, paint, medical and medical, supporting Electrical appliances, electronics, toys, hardware, medical equipment, sporting goods, audio, lighting, machinery, automotive and other industries. Silicone products are also getting closer and closer to our lives and work.


The silicone industry is developing rapidly in China. As of 2014, the use of silica gel will exceed 100 tons. In terms of the application of silicone products, because the mobile phone is constantly updated, the corresponding mobile phone case is also updated very quickly, so the demand for silicone is relatively large. In Europe and the United States, silica gel is widely used in kitchen utensils because of its non-toxic, environmentally friendly characteristics. Throughout the domestic silica gel manufacturers, the quality of the products produced is not good, most of them are low-end products, lacking innovation and design, mainly through imitation to produce products. The production environment of many manufacturers is also uneven, and many of them are produced in a family workshop. As a result, domestic silicone products are not competitive in international high-end products. The development of silica gel products will become more and more mature in the future, and the future development will be more segmented and high-end. The lack of high-end products for domestic companies is where we need to make up for it, especially in medical silicone products, which are basically monopolized by foreign companies.
