Implementation of strict environmental regulations related to VOC emissions to restrict the market

Emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the use of adhesives pose a threat to the environment. Several countries have established guidelines limiting the amount of VOCs emitted when using adhesives, especially solvent-based adhesives, in industries. Manufacturing operations are bound by rules and regulations concerning the assessment, registration, storage, use, handling and transport of certain substances and their emissions, effluents and other wastes. Violation of these regulations is expected to result in a legal compromise of the company’s future business activities.


These environmental regulations restrict the demand for solvent-based adhesives in the packaging and printing industries, as heavy penalties and losses can be incurred due to the violation of these government regulations. Therefore, most of the market players are switching from solvent based adhesives to water based adhesives. Rapid industrialization and urbanization have increased air pollution, which has affected the health of people around the world. Several developing and developed countries such as the United States, India and China are under pressure from national and international regulators to formulate regulations to control VOC emissions and reduce pollution.

Acrylics segment to dominate the global adhesives and sealants market

Based on resin, the adhesives market has been segmented into acrylics, epoxy, polyvinyl acetate (PVA), polyurethane (PU), styrene block, ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA) and other resins such as silicone, polyester and fluoropolymer. In terms of resin, the sealant market has been divided into acrylics, epoxy, polyvinyl acetate (PVA), polyurethane (PU), silicone and others such as polyester and fluoropolymer.

The acrylic segment dominated the adhesives market. Acrylic resins are widely used in the production of heat-resistant, water-based and UV-curing adhesives. In addition, the resins have strong bonding characteristics, fast setting time and good environmental resistance.

The acrylic segment of the sealant market is expected to expand at a rapid rate during the forecast period. Favorable physical properties such as good peel, impact and tensile shear strength are driving the demand for acrylic sealants. The excellent adhesion properties exhibited on substrates such as steel and aluminum are expected to drive their demand in the automotive, consumer and construction sectors.

Water-based segment to drive the adhesives market

In terms of technology, the adhesives market has been categorized into water-based, solvent-based, hot melt and reactive and others, which includes powders and oils. The water-based segment of the adhesives market is expected to expand at a rapid rate during the forecast period due to their environmentally friendly nature. Water-based adhesives meet US and EU standards for VOC emissions. In addition to their low toxicity, their high water content makes water-based adhesives less flammable and reduces hazardous waste.

Automotive and Transportation Segment Dominates the Adhesives and Sealants Market

Based on Application, the Adhesives market has been divided into Paper & Packaging, Building & Construction, Woodworking, Automotive & Transportation, Consumer / DIY, Leather & Footwear, and others such as Electronics & Marine . The sealants market has been divided into building and construction, automotive and transportation, consumer, other which includes industry, woodworking, packaging, and electronics.

The global automotive industry is replacing welding of engine parts assembly with adhesives and sealants to reduce vehicle weight. Reducing vehicle weight increases fuel efficiency. Automotive manufacturers use adhesives and sealants to bond and seal the interior, exterior, underside of the hood, subframe and other related parts of vehicles. Most of the major car manufacturers around the world use epoxy resin based adhesives because they provide a strong and durable bond of different materials.

Asia-Pacific Dominates the Global Adhesives and Sealants Market

In terms of region, the global adhesives and sealants market has been divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa. On the basis of consumption, Asia-Pacific is expected to create lucrative opportunities in the adhesives and sealants market during the forecast period. The Asia-Pacific market, especially China and India, is booming. This, in turn, drives the demand for building and building materials such as adhesives and sealants.
