At the beginning of the said year, the prices of dimethylcyclosiloxane (DMC) averaged 23900 RMB/MT. However, with the complex economic and political conditions that ensued in the Russia-Ukraine war, the price of siloxanes surged globally. In China due to the low inventories and resurgence of covid-19, the prices of DMC inclined. The high quotations by the manufacturers were supported by the downstream demand for stocking DMC causing the prices of DMC to average 37000-39500 RMB/MT in March 2022.
However, soon the prices began to decline because of the expensive logistics and trade bottlenecks. The cautious wait-and-see buyers’ attitude amid the rising speculations of recession and dwindling demand cause the prices of DMC to decline. The price trends for siloxanes recorded a downward trend for the second quarter with prices of DMC averaging 21200 RMB/MT in June 2022.
A siloxane is a functional group in the chemistry of organosilicon. The oligomeric and polymeric hydrides are constituents of the parent siloxanes. Additionally, siloxanes include branching compounds, which may be identified by the fact that each pair of silicon centres is separated from another by one oxygen atom. Siloxanes are categorised as linear or cyclic volatile methyl siloxanes, polydimethylsiloxanes, or PDMS, or polyethermethylsiloxanes, or PEMS, based on their molecular weights.

It is created utilising the dimethyldichlorosilane method. Polydimethylsiloxane and cyclic dimethylsiloxanes are produced as a result of the dichloride's hydrolysis. The cyclic siloxanes, including Octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane, are removed from the mixture by distillation. A more volatile cyclic siloxane is produced by equilibrating the combination of the polymer and ring with strong bases like KOH.
