COVID 19 Analysis:
COVID 19 has a severe impact on the economic condition and industrial activities across the globe. Other sectors like manufacturing, aviation, travel, and tourism were also affected by COVID-19. Therefore the packaging and supply chain disruptions because of the COVID and therefore the industrial processes including transportation and packaging were also affected. However, the rising demand for e-commerce and the inaccessibility of retail shops has propelled the growth of laminating adhesives industry.
The advent of flexible packaging across the globe and the convenience offered by the flexible packaging and the other characteristics are propelling the overall growth of laminating adhesives industry. Moreover, the governmental support for the growth of processed agrifoods, and increasing demand for frozen food are expected to increase the laminating adhesives market value.
The intensive utilization of the laminating adhesives across the consumer electronics and the electronic industry are expected to propel the overall growth of laminating adhesives industry.
The increasing demand for water-based laminating adhesives over solvent-based adhesives because of the regulations imposed by the government across the developed countries are presenting lucrative opportunities for the overall growth of laminating adhesives industry.
The increasing demand for the packaging and the changing behavior of the consumers and their inclination towards convenient packaging is presenting lucrative opportunities for laminating adhesive market growth. For instance, developing countries like India are projecting higher demand for packaged food and beverages. One of the recent studies shows that India is expected to have a 22% growth in the packaging industry in the future years.
The solvent-based laminating adhesives are utilized for higher performance however the government regulations were restricting their usage. On the other hand, water-based adhesives are recommended for industrial purposes. However, the drying and curing processes involved with the water-based adhesives are time consume and the difference in the flow properties and other issues like drying of the water in humid conditions are some of the major restraints of laminating adhesives market growth.
The limited life span of the water-based laminating adhesives is considered as the major restraint of laminating adhesives market growth.
The developed countries are imposing stringent regulations and policies against the usage of laminating adhesives that are emitting the VOC contents and the manufacturers are facing challenges in producing the adhesives complying with these regulations. This is considered as the major challenge for the laminating adhesives market growth.
The demand to produce water-based adhesives across these developed countries, because of the restrictions imposed over the solvent-based adhesives is expected to restrict the overall growth of laminating adhesives industry during the forecast period. Also, the increasing production costs and time-consuming curing and drying processes are considered as the major challenges for laminating adhesives market growth. The time consumption and the labour-intensive processes are considered as the major challenges for the overall growth of laminating adhesives industry.
Cumulative growth analysis:
The laminating adhesives market value was at USD 2.9 billion in the year 2021 and it is expected to surpass the market value of over USD 4.8 billion by the year 2027 while registering a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period. Currently, in the Asia-pacific region due to the presence of numerous manufacturing and food processing industries, consumer electronics and automotive industries are propelling the laminating adhesives market growth across the region. The advent of eco-friendly adhesives and customized products in the industry from the established market players such as DIC Corporation, DOW, and significant others are further propelling the laminating adhesives market growth. For instance, recently, DIC Corporation had introduced a series of laminating adhesives to the existing portfolio and named the series DICDRY LX-RP which is manufactured especially for the flexible packaging.
On the other hand, the intensive disposal of plastics and dumping into the environment is expected to hinder the overall growth of laminating adhesives industry during the forecast period.
Value chain analysis:
The growth of the laminating adhesives industry is highly influenced by solvent-based technology, because of the organic solvents the efficiency and the life of the product are improved. Although due to the issues related to the solvents, they are less utilized in the packaging industry. On the other hand, water-based technology is gaining momentum in the packaging industry. The costs, safety, productivity, compliance issues, and other factors of the water-based adhesives are propelling the packaging industries to adopt them.
The growth of the packaging industry for the key manufacturing industries, food processing units, and other industrial verticals are considered as the major drivers of laminating adhesives market growth. Moreover, the potential characteristics such as being lightweight, easier to handle, and longer shelf life are promoting the laminating adhesives market growth.
