GrandViewResearch.com has announced the addition of "Global Adhesives and Sealants Market Analysis And Segment Forecasts To 2020" Market Research report to their Database.
April 14, 2014 (Newswire) - Global adhesives and sealants Market is expected to reach USD 43,195.5 million by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Growth of construction, automotive and packaging industries, mainly in China, India and Brazil is expected to drive the demand for both adhesives and sealants over the forecast period. However, fluctuation in prices of key feedstocks is expected to remain a primary challenge for industry participants. In addition, stringent regulatory framework, mainly in the U.S. and Europe, owing to growing environmental concerns is expected to hinder the market growth over the next six years. In order to overcome the aforementioned challenges, the industry has been shifting its focus towards developing renewable alternatives to petroleum based adhesives and sealants. Renewable adhesives and sealants are produced using vegetable oils and are environmental friendly in nature.
Water based adhesives dominated the global market, accounting for over 46% of total market volume in 2013. Water based adhesives have low environmental impact with no VOC emissions, a key factor for their high market penetration. Water based adhesives are expected to completely replace solvent based adhesives in the U.S. and European markets over the next decade. Water based adhesives are also expected to be the fastest growing technology, at an estimated CAGR of 5.4% from 2014 to 2020. The global market for hot melt adhesives is expected to reach 2,379.9 kilo tons by 2020, growing at an estimated CAGR of 5.1% from 2014 to 2020.
