Dallas, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/02/2014 -- adds Global Automotive Coatings, Adhesives, and Sealants Market 2014-2018 in its store.Faced with a continual surge in fuel prices, consumers are progressively demanding automobiles with improved fuel efficiency. While alternative sources of fuel are available, automobile manufacturers across the world are increasingly exploring solutions that can reduce the weight of automobiles, and enhance fuel efficiency. This drive for production of lightweight automobiles has led to the increased demand for adhesives and sealants, which when used in place of welded joints, mechanical fasteners, and gaskets help reduce the weight of the automobile. Also, the increasing use of plastics (which cannot be welded) in automobiles has led to the increased demand for adhesives. Moreover, the use of structural adhesives, which are lightweight and crashworthy, in vehicle assembly, has contributed to the market's growth. The use of sealants as substitutes to mechanical gaskets in automobiles, owing to their resistance to corrosion and chemicals, is also expected to contribute to the market's growth during the forecast period.

According to the report, many drivers are contributing to the growth of the Global Automotive Coatings, Adhesives, and Sealants market, the most important of which is the growing demand for specialized types of coatings such as water-based, powder-based, and radiation-curable.
