The "Coupling Agents Market by Type (Sulfur Silane, Vinyl Silane, Amino Silane, Epoxy Silane), Application (Rubber & Plastics, Fiber Treatment, Adhesives & Sealant, Paints & Coatings), and Region (North America, Europe, APAC) - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to's offering.

The coupling agent market is projected to reach USD 614.1 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2018 to 2023. Coupling agents are bifunctional compounds, which are manufactured by using silica and mono-silanes.

The superior binding properties along with high adhesion and ease of processing make coupling agents a choice of material for various applications in rubber tire manufacturing and other automotive components. Coupling agents are mainly used in rubber & plastics and fiber treatment applications. The growth of these applications is driving the coupling agent market, globally.

In 2018, the rubber & plastics application segment accounted for the largest share of the market and is expected to continue to lead during the forecast period. With the growing demand for green tires in various automobiles, the demand for coupling agents in the rubber & plastics segment is likely to increase significantly in the coming years.

The rubber & plastics segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2018 and 2023. The growth of this segment is expected to be driven by the increasing demand for high-performance materials from the automotive industry. Coupling agents are used as additives in the rubber & plastics and fiber treatment applications. They are also used in adhesives & sealants and paints & coatings applications.

The growth in the automotive industry has led to an increase in the demand for coupling agents in the rubber & plastics application. In 2018, APAC accounted for the largest share of the overall coupling agents market. China is expected to account for the largest share of the APAC coupling agent market. The coupling agent market in China is also projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The increasing demand for environmental packaging can have adverse effects on the demand for plastic packaging, which will act as a restraining factor for the coupling agent market during the forecast period.

The key market players have adopted strategies such as expansions to enhance their supply to the customer base in the global coupling agents market.

The key companies such as Wacker Chemie (Germany), Momentive Performance Materials (US), Dow-DuPont (US), Evonik (Germany), and Shin-Etsu Chemicals (Japan) focus on providing customized products and enhancing their presence in the emerging markets.

In 2018, Evonik expanded its production capacity of precipitated silica in Turkey. This will increase its capacity by 40,000 metric ton from 2020. The expansion is expected to cater to the increasing demand for green tires and the raw materials required to manufacture the tires.
