DUBLIN, Mar. 04, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kk28tl/adhesives_and) has announced the addition of the "Concise Analysis of the International Adhesives & Sealants Market - Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.
Adhesives and sealants offer effective means of joining and assembling different materials, thus adding value to the end products. Adhesives and sealants find a place in almost every business, industry, and home. Adhesives are more specifically developed to hold or stick things together, and are advantageous for joining thin or different materials, minimizing weight, and when a vibration-dampening joint is needed. Sealants offer an effective means for leakage control of fluids or gases, or prevent the ingress of atmospheric components into an assembly.
The global adhesives and sealants market is experiencing a higher growth trajectory in the past few years. This growth is largely fueled by the increasing applications, technological advancements, and growing demand in the Asia-Pacific region. Key end user markets for adhesives and sealants vary from construction to packaging and labeling, woodworking, transportation, footwear, and automotive industry. These major end user industries are growing, which in turn has spurred the growth of adhesives and sealants.
The need of superior performance properties is slowly shifting the adhesives market from the traditional solvent based adhesives towards the use of high-performance products such as reactive and pressure sensitive hot melt adhesives. This slow but certain shift in portfolio is fuelling the overall growth of adhesives market.
A key issue in the industry today is volatility in the prices of raw material used in adhesives and sealants. Also, the constant push from regulatory authorities such as EPA (Environment 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.
Asia-Pacific is the biggest and the fastest growing region due to the growing demand for adhesives and sealants in India, China, Japan, South Korea, and Australia. North America is a matured market and is expected to grow with a low CAGR till 2018. Brazil is expected to have high demand for construction adhesives till 2018 as it is hosting the Soccer World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016, giving a boost to a large scale infrastructure requirement.
