MQ copolymer is known as MQ resins. It is a class of mono- (M) and tetra- (Q) functional siloxane units which has an important place among organosiloxane polymers. While, it has wide applications in personal care formulations including eye shadow, waterproof mascara, face cream, sunscreen lotion & even shampoo. Additionally, it is used in the preparation of silicone pressure sensitive adhesive to confer high temperature resistance and for better initial cohesiveness peel strength. Also, it is used as a reinforcing material for additive type liquid silicone rubber.
However, it is also found in powdered MQ Resin−Platinum Complexes that can be used as a Silicone-Soluble Hydrosilylation Cure Catalysts. They are suitable for commercial hybrid organic-inorganic materials with nanoscale dimensions. Besides this, these resins are the clusters of silicate Q groups which are terminated with trimethylsiloxy M groups or hydroxyl groups. Apart from this, the Other applications for MQ resins are as a water-repellents, and additives for paper release casings. Hydride- and vinyl functional MQ resins are used as reinforcing components for clear silicone platinum cure elastomers.

Drivers for the Global MQ Resin Market:
The development of improved and innovative products in the women’s line incorporated with cosmeceutical and multifunctional products are propelling the sales of personal care products which is boosting this market. Other driving factors for this market are the rise in demand for silicone elastomers in developing economies and tremendous development of electrical & electronic industry that contribute majorly in expanding the silicone elastomers business. While the High demand for automobile and its parts to fulfill the insulating, bonding, & sealing applications along with trending antimicrobial silicone elastomers are fueling which led to the growth of Global MQ Resin Market.
Opportunities for the Global MQ Resin Market:
The high demand for personal care products is witnessed to fueling the market during forecasted span. While the growth of the market is also supported by the increasing demand from economies such as India, China, and Indonesia. Further, increasing economy, industrialization and favorable regulations are also anticipated to propel the market growth in upcoming years. Besides this, increasing number of manufacturers or vendors are also expected to expand their production capabilities by joint ventures and acquisitions which in turn is creating lucrative opportunities during the forecast period. Thus, all these factors will provide growth opportunities for global MQ resin market at forecasted period.
Restrains for the Global MQ Resin Market:
MQ or trimethylsiloxysilicate resin are difficult for incorporating the resin into an internal phase of oil and water emulsion systems which is a major factor hampering the growth of the market. While, the film formed is brittle in nature which is creating a negative impact at market. Also, in case if the film is deposited on a non-rigid surface then, it is subjected to the shape change (i.e. hair, face, hands, etc.), then the film will show cracking, flaking or peeling, thus compromising product efficacy and providing a user with a poor aesthetic experience is the major drawback of global MQ resin market. However, limited shelf life of the skin care product poses limitations to the market growth. Thus all these factors are hampering the growth of global MQ resin market.
Region Wise, Global MQ Resin Market Analysis:
Report covers the region wise analysis, global MQ resin market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, South-America and Middle East and Africa. Among all, Asia- Pacific leads the global MQ resin market share followed by South-America and Middle East and Africa. While the Asia- Pacific leads the market share due to the high demand for personal care products. While the increasing demand for this product from emerging economies such as India, China, and Indonesia. Further, increasing economies, industrialization and favorable regulations are some of the driving factors for the growth of this market in this region.
