Structural Adhesives Market Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2018 - 2026
Structural Adhesives Market - Overview
Structural adhesive is a type of adhesive that is used for applications where joints of components typically have lap shear strengths of greater than 1MPa, and, more normally, greater than 10MPa. The adhesive offers a high load bearing capability and excellent environmental and chemical resistance. This type of adhesive is widely used in permanent bonding and high-strength applications such as recreational vehicles, buses, and trucks.
In terms of type, the structural adhesive market can be categorized into epoxy, acrylic, cyanoacrylate, urethane, and others. The others segment comprises silicon, anaerobic adhesives, and vinyl acetates. The urethane segment accounted for a major share of the market in 2017, due to the excellent chemical and physical properties of urethane compared to other types. Urethane offer properties such as flexibility, strength, and good adhesion on metal and plastic composites.
Based on end-use industry, the global structural adhesives market can be divided into automotive, building & construction, marine, aerospace, wind energy, and others. The others segment includes sporting goods, electronics, and furniture. The automotive segment held a prominent share of the market in 2017, due to high demand for structural adhesives in the production of lightweight vehicles and heavy vehicles such as trucks and buses.
Based on region, the global structural adhesives market can be classified into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is a key region accounting for a significant share of the global structural adhesives market. The structural adhesives market in Asia Pacific is projected to expand at a rapid CAGR during the forecast period, due to a rise in demand for structural adhesives in building & construction activities, primarily in developing economies of China and Japan. Technological advancements, such as the penetration of composites in various applications in South Korea and Japan, have also boosted the structural adhesives market in Asia Pacific. The structural adhesives market in North America is expected to expand at a minimal pace during the forecast period, due to sluggish growth of industries such as automotive and construction in the region. Drivers of the structural adhesives market in North America include high demand from the wind energy, transportation, and marine sectors. Engineering plastics and composites are replacing traditional materials such as metals due to a rise demand for weight reduction of components used in industries such as automotive, energy, and marine. This is driving demand for structural adhesives in North America. The market share of Middle East & Africa is estimated to remain constant by the end of the forecast period, as the growth rate of the construction industry in this region is sluggish. However, the rate is expected to increase in the near future.
