UV Adhesives (Acrylic, Epoxy, Polyurethane, Silicone and Others) Market for Packaging & Laminating, Assembly, Wood-working, Pressure Sensitive Applications, and Other Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/09/2015 -- The UV adhesives market is rather niche. Nevertheless, the radiation curable products have already claimed a high level of attraction from investors across major industry verticals. Characteristically, UV adhesives offer a wide range of advantages such as high bond strength, rapid curing rates, and lower volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. With the rising popularity of more compact and thinner electronic devices, there has been a growing demand for UV adhesives. The UV adhesives market also sees great demand from flexible packaging industries. Being highly environment-friendly, vendors can come up with innovative applications of UV adhesives, thereby inviting more funding and investments for research and development. LED UV lamps are also known to have immense growth potential in terms of development and commercialization.

However, advanced machinery involved in the application of UV adhesives is extremely expensive, resulting in a slower adoption rate. This is anticipated to stall the growth of the UV adhesives market.
