“The demand for soy-based adhesives is forecast to increase worldwide in the coming years,” notes the report’s authors. “The product has emerged as a growing ‘green’ feedstock to replace petroleum-based chemicals in various industrial applications. Both the rise in petroleum prices and concerns with formaldehyde emissions have resulted in rising demand and development of soy-based adhesives, boosting sales of the product globally”

Upcoming Trends Point to Use in Wood, as a Latex Replacement and in Construction

The adhesive properties of soy-based products means they will likely be used in a broader range of applications in coming years, the report adds. Chief among those is with wood, where soy-based adhesives can be used with particleboard and medium-density fibreboard. Trends also point to the use of soy-based adhesives as a full or partial replacement for latex adhesives, in the construction and sealant market, and even in asphalt and built-up roof applications, where they can add bio-content.
