The market size of Adhesives & Sealants was valued at US$ 51,745.3 million in 2017, with CAGR growth of 4.9 percent between 2018 and 2026 during the forecast period. Adhesives hold at least two substrates together in a strong and permanent manner, while sealants perform the same function but also fill the gap between the two substrates in order to prevent the passage of air, water and/or chemicals. Adhesives and sealants are often made of similar materials and sometimes used in similar applications in end-use industries such as paperboard & packaging, automotive & transport, construction & construction, woodworking & joinery, etc.
Water-based adhesives are the largest segment due to their versatility and moderate price, followed by solvent-based adhesives. The consumption of solvent-based adhesives in developed countries is declining due to strict VOC emission regulations. However, the increase in the shoe manufacturing industry, particularly in China, supported the growth of the segment during the forecast period. Silicone dominated the resin type market of Sealants followed by polyurethane resin-based sealants. Polysulfide sealants are losing market share for polyurethane-based sealants.
Paperboard & Packaging holds the largest market share of Adhesives & Sealants by end-use industries during 2017-2018. In the paperboard & packaging industry, adhesives & sealants are used in a wide variety of paper bonding processes, ranging from corrugated box construction and lamination of printed sheets to packaging materials used for all types of consumer products, to the production of large industrial tubes and cores used by manufacturers of paper goods and other materials. Factors such as rising population and disposable income, increasing demand for quality products, high economic growth, especially in developing economies, fuel the growth of this segment. Based on geography, Asia-Pacific held the largest share of value and volume in the global market for Adhesives & Sealants in 2017. Asia-Pacific is identified as the fastest-growing region due to rising population and disposable income coupled with growth in end-use industries, driving the market for Asia-Pacific Adhesives & Sealants. North America, with the largest number of new product developments in the world, is closely monitoring Asia-Pacific in terms of value and volume consumption. Water-borne & Hot-melt adhesives are becoming increasingly popular in North America due to the ongoing replacement of solvent-borne adhesives in developed regions.
Although increasing regulations against the use of high VOC compounds coupled with high costs associated with compliance and required raw materials, manufacturers are continually addressing the situation by investing heavily in R&D and new technology development.
The leading manufacturers of adhesives and sealants are 3 M Company (U.S.), Illinois Tool Works Inc. (U.S.), H.B. Fuller (Netherlands), Bostik Ltd. (France), Henkel AG & Company (Germany), Sika AG (Switzerland), Avery Dennison (USA), RPM and International Inc. (USA) among others.
