World Adhesives & Sealants

According to World Adhesives & Sealants, demand will be driven by strong growth in construction activity and manufacturing output, and increasing adoption of adhesive bonding technologies designed to replace or augment mechanical fasteners.

China to lead world market, India to grow rapidly

China’s global dominance in several adhesive-intensive industries will bolster the country’s position as the top adhesives and sealants consumer through 2019.

Freedonia Group projects that in India rapid advances in construction and motor vehicle output will fuel demand. Construction activity, and related adhesives and sealants use, is expected to advance at a strong rate, supported in part by public infrastructure spending. In India’s automotive sector, rising motor vehicle sales are fueling output and capacity expansions by major automakers, boosting sales of epoxies, polyurethanes, and other adhesive and sealant types. Similar trends will also spur demand in the auto industries of Thailand and other emerging economies.

Reactive products to post strongest annual gains

The fastest annual sales gains are projected for reactive adhesives and sealants, driven by rising demand in high performance applications, including bonding and/or sealing of motor vehicle, aerospace, and electrical and electronic components. Ongoing strength in global construction activity will further boost sales, fueling purchases of epoxy, polyurethane, silicone, and other sealant types used in building construction and civil engineering projects.
