Industry:  Materials & Chemicals | Publish Date: Dec 2022 | No of Pages:  N/A | No. Tables:  N/A | No. Figures:  N/A

Market Definition:

The Adhesives and Sealants Market size was valued at USD 68.12 billion in 2021, and is expected to reach USD 96.12 billion by 2030, with a CAGR of 3.9% from 2022 to 2030.

Adhesives and sealants are chemical substances that are used to stick and seal materials. These substances are applied on the surface of separated items to bind them into one and prevent their separation. The main function of adhesive is to hold both the surface through and through for a longer period of time. Whereas, sealants are semisolid substances whose main function is to attach surfaces as well as fill the spaces or gaps with a protective coating.

In addition, the other role of the sealant is to make sure that no external element gets in between the surfaces that are fixed by the adhesives. The adhesives offer several advantages over other binding techniques that include sewing and welding. Alongside, sealants aim to deliver waterproofing by preventing moisture from the surface. The applications of adhesives and sealants are found in various industry verticals such as woodworking, leather & footwear, paper & packaging, automotive & transportation, and building & construction, among others.

Market Dynamics and Trends

Increasing population & urbanization coupled with the government investments in sectors such as construction and infrastructure across the globe are factors that are driving the global adhesives and sealants market growth. Also, the R&D activities around water-based, bio-based, and hot melt adhesives are more elegant and helpful in woodworking industry along with emergence of organic solvents that are eco-friendly and provide extra bonding strength which further propels the growth of the adhesives and sealants market.

Additionally, the usage of adhesives and sealants is preferred over the traditional mechanisms such as screws, fasteners, welds and rivets due to easy and quick implications. This factor is further expected to drive the growth of adhesives and sealants market during the forecast period.

However, the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from adhesives and sealants can affect the health of consumers by causing issues such as skin problems, irritation, shortness of breath, dizziness, and fatigue, thereby acting as a restrain to the market. On the contrary, strict government policies such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), has compelled the manufacturers to make products with no or low volatile organic compound (VOC) levels to minimize the after-effects and threats of adhesives and sealants, which is expected to create ample opportunities for the market players in the coming years.
