Specialty Adhesives

US specialty adhesives demand will rise 4.4 percent annually through 2013. Strong growth in the medical product and automotive markets will fuel gains in the dominant manufacturing segment. The on-site construction market will grow the fastest. Cyanoacrylates and radiation-cured acrylic adhesives will be the fastest growing types.

This study analyzes the $2.4 billion US specialty adhesives industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, with forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by adhesive type (e.g., polyurethane, cyanoacrylate, epoxy, anaerobic, polyvinyl butyral) and market (e.g., manufacturing and assembly, on-site construction).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 25 industry competitors, including Henkel, 3M and Dow Chemical.
