Monday 28 Oct 2013
Industry Experts has unveiled the new market research report on Industrial Adhesives Applications. The report 'Industrial Adhesives: Products and Applications – A Global Market Overview' explores the industrial adhesives market by product types and end-use applications in terms of both volume and value.
Demand for industrial adhesives is estimated to extend across a wide spectrum of end markets, with transportation, inclusive of automotive and construction likely to take leading positions. A growing number of end-use applications have exhibited a marked shift from traditional mechanical fastener based technologies to adhesive based technologies, prominent among them being the automotive, mobile handheld electronic devices and medical sectors, which are expected to record faster than GDP growths over the coming few years. For instance, in automotive and aircraft manufacturers have initiated the substitution of conventionally used metals with plastics, composites and nonferrous materials in fabrication that helps in reducing weight of the vehicles and reducing fuel consumption.
Traditionally, the global demand and growth for industrial adhesives has had a direct correlation with the chemical industry as a whole, which has averaged at about 3%-4% over the past decade. However, between the years 2008 and 2010, the global economy went into a tailspin, with a major proportion of industries following in its wake, of which the chemical industry was one. With end-users tightening belts and cutting down production due to lack of demand, industry majors had a torrid time in this recessionary period, and the market for industrial adhesives was also adversely affected.
Industrial Adhesives application areas explored in this report encompass Pressure Sensitive Products, Packaging, Construction, Woodworking, Transportation and Other Applications. The report also analyzes the product segments including Acrylics, Water-Based PVAc & VAE, Polyurethane, EVA & Polyethylene Hot-Melts, SBC Hot-Melts, Epoxy, Polychloroprene and Others. The major product segments further classified in to sub-types as Acrylics – Emulsion-Based Acrylics, Solvent-Based Acrylics and Other Acrylics; and Polyurethane - Solvent-Based, 100% Reactive, Hot-Melt and Water-Based.
The global markets for the above mentioned product types and end-use applications for industrial adhesives are analyzed in both value in US$ and the volumes in million pounds (lbs). The report covers the global market for industrial applications only and excludes any other usages of adhesives. Pressure sensitive products accounts for the largest share of about 28% of global consumption of industrial adhesives equated to 5.9 billion lbs closely followed by Packaging with 4.7 billion lbs in 2013. Transportation projected to achieve the fastest 6.3% compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2013 and 2020.
