Composite Adhesives Market Forecast


Composite Adhesives Market has moderate CAGR forecast period 2021-2030. Composite adhesives are the substance applied to bind the composites to themselves and to numerous different substrates. They are available in different forms such as liquid, paste, and film. Adhesives are categorized into two types based on the number of components. Two-component adhesives are made up of resin and hardener and can be cured at room temperature or at elevated temperatures. One component adhesives are premixed and can be cured only at elevated temperatures only (typically 250-300°F).  Composite adhesives provide high mechanical strength and peerless performance even upon exposure to extreme conditions. Various types of resins such as epoxy, acrylic, polyurethane, methyl methacrylate, polyimide, phenolic, cyanoacrylate, silicone, and others are used to make different types of adhesives. Epoxy adhesives provide superior bonding with different types of substrate, excellent durability & strength with low shrinkage, superior chemical, heat & weather resistance, and excellent electrical insulation properties. Polyurethane adhesives are widely used for marine applications owing to its ability to bond even in high moisture conditions, superior bonding with a non-porous substance such as wood, high UV resistance, and low VOC content. Methyl methacrylate adhesives provide faster curing, excellent adhesion, and material forms a strong thermoplastic with excellent resistance to shear, peel and impact stresses.


Growing popularity of composites in different end-use industries owing to its high strength to weight ratio, low cost, and easy fabrication is expected to be the key driver of the global composite adhesives market. For instance, over 50% constituents of an airplane are fabricated by composites such as rudder, engine cowlings, spoilers, airbrakes, and rear bulkhead elevators among other owing to its reduced weight and assembly simplification. In the automotive industry, many components such as steering wheel, energy absorber, dashboard, instrument cluster, roof, interior and exterior panel, and intelligent lighting systems are fabricated by composite materials on account of increasing demand for lightweight automotive components. In the healthcare industry, composites are used in varied application such as in the form of sutures, heart valves, dental implants, vascular grafts, and pacemakers among others in order to replace or restore the role of degenerated tissues and organs to enable healing and enhance functions thereby improving the overall quality of the life of patients. In electrical & electronics industry, composite materials are used to make die-attach, printed circuit boards, connectors, heat sinks, and thermal interface materials.


However, stringent regulations by EPA against the use of high VOC content materials in Europe and North America may hamper the composite market to some extent and thus adversely affect the composite adhesives market growth. Additionally, the volatile pricing of raw materials used to make composite adhesives might hamper composite adhesives industry growth.
