Adhesives and Sealants Market Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2018 - 2026
Adhesives and Sealants Market - Overview
The global adhesives and sealants market is projected expand in the next few years, due to rising demand for them from end-use industries and diverse applications. An adhesive is a compound blend that attaches two surfaces to frame a solitary unit, though a sealant is a semisolid material used to avoid liquid spillage.
Adhesives and sealants market has been segmented separately in the report. The adhesives market has been segmented based on resin, technology, and application. However, the sealants market is bifurcated in terms of resin and application.
Based on resin, the adhesives market has been segmented into acrylics, epoxy, poly vinyl acetate (PVA), polyurethane (PU), styrenic block, ethyl vinly acetate (EVA), and others, which include resins such as silicone, polyester, and Fluoropolymer. In terms of resin, the sealants market has been segregated into acrylics, epoxy, poly vinyl acetate (PVA), polyurethane (PU), silicone, and other resins such as polyester and Fluoropolymer.
The acrylic resin segment dominated the global adhesives market. Acrylic resins are significantly being used in the production of heat resistant, water-based, and UV curing adhesives. Moreover, resins have robust bonding characteristics, fast setting time, and good environmental resistance.
Polyurethane adhesives accounted for a significant share of the adhesives market in 2017. Use of PU resin to bond fiberglass, packaging laminations, footwear, and automotive windshield is rising due to its characteristics such as solidity, less curing time, and low viscosity
In terms of volume, silicone is a leading resin segment of the global sealants market in 2017. The segment is projected to expand at a considerable pace during the forecast period owing to its favorable properties such as high-temperature resistance and implementation of various regulations supporting their use in a wide range of sectors such as building & construction.
Based on technology, the adhesives market has been classified into water-based, solvent-based, hot melt, and reactive & other technologies, which includes powder-based and oil-based. The water-based segment of the adhesives market is estimated to expand rapid pace during the forecast period due to their eco-friendly nature. Water-based adhesives meet the standards set by the U.S. and European Union on VOC emissions. In addition to low toxicity, their high water content makes water-based adhesives less flammable and reduces hazardous waste disposal.
In terms of application, the adhesives market has been segregated into paper & packaging, building & construction, woodworking, automotive & transportation, consumer/DYI, leather & footwear, others, which include electronics and marine. The sealants market has been divided into building & construction, automotive & transportation, consumer, and others, which includes industrial, woodworking, packaging, and electronics.
The automotive & transportation segment is projected to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period. Recent advancements in technology have reduce the application of spot welding by almost 50%. This has helped reduce the overall weight of automobiles. Additionally, implementations of stringent regulations in the U.S. to increase fuel efficiency has prompted major manufacturers to reduce weight of automobiles. This, in turn, is driving the demand for adhesives in automotive and transportation applications.
Innovation in packaging due to the introduction of flexible packaging is expected to drive the demand for adhesives in the paper & packaging application. Adhesives & sealants are used in the packaging sector to ensure that the package stays sealed during warehousing, distribution, and display. Rapid expansion of the packaging industry in Asia Pacific is estimated to boost the utilization of adhesives & sealants. Sealants are extensively employed in building & construction and industrial industries, as they offer flexibility in processing and improves longevity of materials used.
Based on region, the adhesives & sealants market has been categorized into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. In terms of consumption, Asia Pacific is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the adhesives & sealants market during the forecast period. The market in countries in Asia Pacific, especially China and India, is expanding at a significant pace. This, in turn, is boosting the demand for building and construction materials such as adhesives & sealants.
Growth in the manufacturing sector in countries such as China, India, and Japan is anticipated to drive the demand for adhesives & sealants in industrial, automotive, and electrical and electronics sectors in the region. Surge in automotive production in China and India has increased the demand for adhesives & sealants in these countries.
In terms of consumption, Germany, the U.K., and France, account for large share of the adhesives market in Europe. Adhesives are extensively used in a wide range of applications. The market in Europe is driven by increasing demand from industries such as automobile and electronics.
