According to the Chinese Automobile Industry Association statistics, 2012, automobile production and sales reached 19.2718 million and 19.3064 million respectively, the year-on-year growth of 4.63% and 4.33%, automotive industry silicone rubber dosage of about 20,000 T. According to the latest research in the world, increasing the amount of silicone materials used in auto parts can greatly improve the safety performance of automobiles, therefore, the increase of automobile output and the level of cycling consumption will promote the increasing demand of silicone rubber in automobile industry. The State encourages the development of independent brands, the key auto parts to achieve autonomy, the "2012 Party and government official car selection Model directory (draft)" for the independent brand to expand in the government procurement market share, in order to change the current domestic governmental procurement of joint-venture brand products to provide protection. Promote the development of independent brands, the prosperity of domestic automobile industry will provide a strong guarantee for the application of automotive adhesives.
Forecast in the next 3 years, China RTV Silicone rubber in the automotive industry will grow at an annual rate of 20%. In addition, silicone rubber is the most important non-oil-based synthetic rubber, accounting for about 98% of non-oil-based synthetic rubber consumption. But because of the sharp rise in oil prices, while China's silicone rubber key raw materials in the production of silicone monomer breakthrough, the production technology of silicone monomer 2005 years ago by several multinational companies monopoly, but at present China has developed into a global organic silicon monomer 1th country, These 2 reasons make the price of silicone rubber starting from 2011 lower than the oil-based synthetic rubber, only about the 80%~90% of the bulk petroleum base rubber, became the cheapest synthetic rubber, and began a large-scale replacement of oil-based synthetic rubber. This will greatly expand the market space for the silicone industry and will drive the consumption of silicone oil, silane coupling agent and silicone resins and other silicone products.
