Adhesive is a broad term as it incorporates various materials like cement, glue, mucilage, and paste among others. Adhesives majorly comprise of polymers, which harden either in a physical manner or as a result of a chemical reaction, and are generally classified on the basis of their curing, or bonding, mechanism. On the other hand, sealant is a soft, pliable material that changes state to become solid after application, and is chiefly employed for the prevention of air, noise, dust, fire, smoke, and liquid penetration, where structural strength is not required. Sealants fall between the higher-strength adhesives and extremely low-strength putties and caulks. Adhesives and sealants are categorized on the basis of whether the bonding involves a physical or chemical mechanism.
The key factors driving growth of the global adhesives and sealants industry include expanding construction industry, growing transportation sector and increasing demand of green products. The end-use markets for the adhesives and sealants are highly correlated with the global economic conditions and the GDP. The global adhesives and sealants market is likely to be driven by the ameliorating the Asia Pacific markets, skewed trends in the US transportation sector and increasing demand for more environment friendly products. In addition, the growing application of adhesives in the medical applications is expected to bring new opportunities to the market. However, the growth of global adhesives and sealants industry is hindered by the strict regulatory compliance imposed on manufacturers and fluctuating raw material prices.
Adhesives and sealants are utilized in several industries including packaging, automotive, electronics, footwear, construction repair and remodeling, textiles, consumer goods, and shipbuilding. Among all the applications, packing, construction industry, durable assembly and transportation sector accounts a major part of adhesives and sealants.
The present report offers a comprehensive analysis of the global adhesives and sealants market along with a detailed study of the regional markets including North America, Japan, Asia and Europe. The competition in the respective market is intense with few large players viz. Henkel, H.B. Fuller, Sika and 3M. The competitive landscape along with the company profiles of the leading players in the market is discussed in detail.
By combining SPSS Inc.’s data integration and analysis capabilities with our relevant findings, we have predicted the future growth of the industry. We employed various significant variables that have an impact on this industry and created regression models with SPSS Base to determine the future direction of the industry. Before deploying the regression model, the relationship between several independent or predictor variables and the dependent variable was analyzed using standard SPSS output, including charts, tables and tests.
