Hot Melt Adhesives Market Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2018 - 2026
Hot Melt Adhesives Market - Overview
Hot melts are chemicals that are thermally melted to develop cohesion (internal strength) by Middle East & Africans of cooling. Hot melt adhesives primarily consist of three components: polymer or blend of polymers, tackifying resin, and wax/oil. These adhesives also include an antioxidant, filler or UV stabilizer, or a pigment as per the application. Hot tack, open time, and settling time are the key properties of hot melt adhesives. Hot tack refers to the stickiness of an adhesive, while open time is the time taken by an adhesive to create the bond. Settling time is the time taken by an adhesive to form a bond of acceptable strength.
Based on application, the packaging segment held major share of the global hot melt adhesives market in 2017 owing to the growth in the packaging industry, led by expansion of retail chains and burgeoning health care and cosmetics sectors. This trend is likely to continue throughout the forecast period. Non-woven/hygiene is also a key application segment of the global hot melt adhesives market.
In terms of value and volume, Asia Pacific accounted for prominent share of the global hot melt adhesives market in 2017. The region is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. China and India are highly lucrative countries for hot melt adhesives in Asia Pacific. Rise in demand for packaging applications in food and e-commerce industries is boosting the market in Asia Pacific. Advancements in the health care industry and improvements in lifestyle in China and India are also anticipated to propel the demand for hot melt adhesives in non-woven/hygiene products. The European Union and the U.S. Government have imposed restrictions on materials with high VOC content such as solvent-based adhesives. This is estimated to augment the demand for hot melt adhesives in these regions.
Hot melt adhesives carry technical limitations such as smaller temperature range to which they can be exposed due to lower melting points compared to their close substitutes such as solvent-based adhesives and water-based adhesives. This is expected to restrain the market in the near future.
