Market Overview:


Adhesives are chemical substances which are used to unify two separate surfaces into a single entity which does not separate easily. Adhesives such as glue, mucilage, paste, and cement involve high tensile and shear strength, which is used for various holding and bonding functions. Sealants consist of adhesive properties which are used for sealing, filling, and waterproofing of gaps between two surfaces. Sealants as compared to adhesives provide resistance to movement of substrates, thereby providing better flexibility between the surfaces.


Furthermore, high shear and tensile strength of adhesives and sealants act as a major application in the construction industry. Construction adhesives and sealants are majorly used in tapes & labels, roof & floors, and insulation materials, among others. Owing to these factors, the construction adhesives, and sealants market is expected to propel during the forecast period.


According to the Market Research Future (MRFR) analysis, the global construction adhesive and sealant market is estimated to cross USD 12 billion by the end of 2025 and register a CAGR of over 6.1%. The growth of the global market for construction adhesive and sealants is projected to be primarily driven by their increasing demand in ceramic tile, pre-finished panels, roofing, wall covering, concrete, pipe cement, flooring underlayment, countertop lamination, drywall lamination, HVAC, and other applications. Furthermore, the development of high-performance adhesives and sealants such as eco-friendly sealants along with adhesives and sealants by UV cure are some the major developments which are expected to boost the market. These high-performance adhesives and sealants help to cut waste, cost, processing time, and application time.


Adhesive and sealants incur adverse environmental impact, for instance, a silver epoxy-based electronic conductive adhesive (ECA) emits carbon dioxide and other carbon footprints. However, due to strict government regulations on VOC emission, various end-use industries are opting for organic based solvents. For instance, SIKA AG introduced its new-generation adhesive SikaBond AT-75 used for wood floor bonding collating with the EHS regulation. The bio-based products for sealants and adhesives such as vegetable-based polyamides, soybean-derived polyols, polyisoprenes, and epoxies are substituting the use of synthetic materials and while reducing carbon footprint. Water-based adhesives and silicone-based sealants are expected to have a significant share in the market. The prices of raw materials such as synthetic fibers, crude oil, and resins are likely to hamper the growth of the global construction adhesives and sealants market during the forecast period.
