Starting from the mid-Q3, the price trend moved upward till the middle of the fourth quarter. However, the complex global trade dynamics after that disturbed the silicone (DMC) market further and pushed the prices downward again. Albeit the overall market sentiments were still largely positive. In the Chinese market, the average monthly prices for silicone (DMC) went from around 1874 USD/MT in July’23 to about 1953 USD/MT in December’23.


The silicone (DMC) prices were observed to be wavering in the European markets during the said period. The price trend barely moved during the third quarter as the supply and demand equation didn’t change much during this time. However, the fourth quarter started on a strong note as the prices started picking up as the demands rose; restrictions in the global supply chains were also responsible for this sudden turn of events. But as the supply issues started persisting, the European markets started experiencing demand depreciation, which again pivoted the price graph southward in the latter half of the final quarter.

North America

The American market’s situation was relatively much weaker than the global trends as the prices here were found to be falling for most of the said period. The third quarter saw a consistent slide in prices, but as the suppliers got cautious and acquired a wait-and-watch approach, the prices started to stabilize in the latter quarter. However, the market dynamics still remained weak for the majority of the said period.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the market projections for Silicone (DMC) do not look very positive for the coming months. Considering the poor demand estimations, the prices will likely continue to follow the current trajectory.

Silicone (DMC) Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


A fall in the prices of dimethylcyclosiloxane was seen in the first and second quarters of 2023. The first quarter was affected by low demand and high production activities in the region. This increased level of production caused the problem of oversupply in the region while the market dynamics of the downstream industries remained uncertain.

The disruptions in trade activities and cautious consumption from consumers further proved to be a challenge for the prices of dimethylcyclosiloxane in the second quarter. As a result, the price trend of dimethylcyclosiloxane in the Asia-Pacific region fell throughout the first and second quarters of 2023.


In Europe, high uncertainties in the market affected the price trend of dimethylcyclosiloxane negatively. These uncertain conditions in the region were a direct result of shadows of recession looming over the European region. In the first two quarters of 2023, the demand for dimethylcyclosiloxane remained low, and the fall in the cost of energy also hampered the growth trajectory of dimethylcyclosiloxane prices. The downstream industries also struggled to maintain their momentum, which further added pressure on the market activities of dimethylcyclosiloxane.

North America

The frequently shifting market conditions in the North American region and falling economic conditions in Europe led to the fall in the price trend of Silicone (DMC). In addition to this, in the second quarter, the prices also suffered from the low demand and high levels of inventories that also affected the rates of production and overall market conditions of dimethylcyclosiloxane. In all, the declining demand, low interest of buyers, and cuts in price quotations by traders led to the southward movement of the price trend of dimethylcyclosiloxane.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Dimethylcyclosiloxane is estimated to depict a declining trajectory given the sliding market activities and fall in downstream demand.
