Williamstown, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/16/2012 -- Global Adhesives and Sealants Market by Type, Applications, Trends, and Forecasts (2011-2016)
Adhesives and sealants are the most versatile bonding agents available today. Although adhesives and sealants resemble each other chemically but they vary in their functionally; they also have a similar technology base. The adhesives segment dominates the global adhesives and sealants market, with a share of almost 75%. Adhesives dominated the market in terms of both market share as well as innovations. Sealants segment accounts for 25% of the global adhesives and sealants market. With the huge market potential and the growing preference, the market for adhesives and sealants is likely to witness considerable growth. The growth of the market is also largely attributed to the technological developments. Asia-Pacific region dominated the adhesives and sealants market both in terms of volume and revenue.
Adhesives and sealants can be further classified on the basic of product types, such as polyurethane, epoxy, silicone, styrenic block, ethylene vinyl acetate, acrylate, polyvinyl, and others. In terms of end-user or applications, adhesives and sealants are widely used in pressure sensitive products, automotive, packaging, construction, woodworking and furniture, and other products. Adhesives can also be categorized on the basis of technology employed in the production such as water-borne, solvent-borne, reactive, and hot melt.

The global adhesives and sealants market is driven by many factors such as its broad spectrum of applications in different industries. The market size has also increased due to the growing demand for adhesives and sealants in Asia-Pacific. The ever increasing need for high standard performance across all modern applications is driving the growth of adhesives and sealants. On account of new technological developments, more niche applications for adhesives and sealants are being explored for meeting consumer's demand, this has also presented new opportunities to manufacturers and also helped in increasing the penetration of adhesives and sealants in new applications.
However, growing volatility in the prices of raw materials has increased pressure on margins of adhesives and sealants manufacturers. The constant push from regulatory authorities such as EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals) is likely to limit the use of solvent-borne adhesives and sealants in order to reduce the impact on the environment.
