Fiberglass cloths that have been coated or impregnated with silicone are known as silicone fabrics. The silicone rubber compound gives the fabrics longer life, resistance to abrasion, puncture, rip, and resistance to UV, oil, and water. Since silicone fabrics have such good heat resistance, they can be used in hot environments for extended periods of time without losing their flexibility or toughness. Heat-resistant apparel, fire blankets, welding splatter protection, weather-proof jacketing, conveyor belts for food manufacturing, baking trays, bellows, and expansion joints are all common uses for silicone fabrics. Knife coating and calendaring are the two methods for applying silicone coating on fiberglass, respectively. Silicones are used to treat fabrics to resist water because they provide long-lasting water-repellency qualities. Items that have been covered in silicone have increased strength and durability and are better able to withstand mechanical stresses.
Growing demand for the creation of protective apparel.
Demand for industrial fabrics is very high.
Availability of inexpensive replacements including rubber-coated textiles, PTFE, TPO, and TPU.
Increased Market Share in the Medical and Healthcare Sector
Prices of raw materials fluctuate, which affects market expansion.
Impact of Covid-19:
The epidemic has caused operational and global supply chain disruptions across end-use sectors. Markets have slowed down or stopped as a result of the disturbances. Uncertainties could, however, be brought on by things like unequal vaccination rollouts and the removal of macroeconomic support measures. If the pandemic persists longer than anticipated, external funding conditions tighten, or geopolitical tensions increase further, these factors will have an effect on the region's growth.
The COVID-19 epidemic caused a significant drop in industrial sector demand in 2020. The drop in oil and gas prices as well as the enormous imbalance between supply and demand had an even greater impact. Numerous production operations were put on hold until the economy recovered as a result of financial losses. The demand for silicone fabrics also decreased as a result of the global recession in the manufacturing sector.

The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.
The 5 steps process:
Step 1: Secondary Research:
Secondary Research or Desk Research as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through readily available information. In this process, we use various paid and unpaid databases to which our team has access and gather data through the same. This includes examining listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling, etc. Apart from this, our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various universities as well as individual libraries.
Step 2: Primary Research
When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data. This type of research is focused on gaining content-specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first-hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.
We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.
Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply sides of the industry to make sure we land an accurate judgment and analysis of the market.
This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses, and observation of on-field participants. The below-mentioned chart should give a better understanding of part 1 of the primary interview.
Part 2: In this part of the primary research the data collected via secondary research and part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews with individual consultants and subject matter experts.
Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.
Step 3: Data Bank Validation
Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence center, our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real-time.
Step 4: QA/QC Process
After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but is not limited to getting rid of the many typos, duplication of numbers, or missing any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads, and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploaded on our platform for our clients to read it.
Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:
This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
