Tile Adhesive Market Trends



  • Growing demand for tile and marble flooring in commercial and corporate areas to boost the market growth


Developments in new production technologies for ceramic and porcelain tiles have led to thinner and larger tiles. These tiles are used to create almost continuous surfaces, increasing their architectural value. Also, the increase in the demand for soundproofing and thermal insulation in buildings has led to a trend shift from the use of normal concrete substrates to different innovative substrate materials such as gypsum boards, chipboards, plaster boards, cement fiber panels, metal surfaces, and heated floors. Emerging new substrates for swimming pools, such as fiberglass and cementitious screed, have led to the development of new tile adhesives from Mapei S.p.A and Saint-Gobain Weber, among other companies.


Further, According to ICIS, the volume of the construction industry is likely to grow by 35% to USD 5.8 trillion by 2030 and will be mainly driven by the US, China, and India. This growth would drive the demand for tile adhesives in various construction applications. Asia Pacific is leading the construction market due to the burgeoning growth of residential, commercial, and institutional engineering projects in countries such as China and India. The construction industry in ASEAN countries is expected to project phenomenal growth compared to the rest of the world. This growth is expected to enhance the tile adhesive market CAGR across the globe in recent years.


Additionally, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2020, 3,142 fatal incidents led to the loss of life due to distracted driving across the US. Also, NHTSA registered nearly 8% of the fatal accidents that occurred in 2020 were due to distracted driving. Similarly, as per the WHO insights, drivers operating mobile phones behind the wheel are four times more likely to face mishaps while driving. Similarly, per the data documented by the Indian Road Transport Ministry in 2016, 4,746 individuals were injured while distracted driving. Such accidents generally impact the cervical and spine region leading to critical injuries. Therefore, a medical condition related to cervical spondylosis has enhanced the tile adhesive market CAGR across the globe in recent years.


However, the rising migration of individuals across cities is fueling the need for additional housing space, particularly in tier 1 cities. Government and private sector enterprises are investing in the construction sector and are emphasizing rural development, which is another factor driving the growth of the tile adhesive market revenue.


Tile Adhesive Market Segment Insights


Tile Adhesive Type Insights


The tile adhesive market segmentation, based on type, includes cementitious, dispersion, and reactive tile adhesive. The cementitious segment held the majority share 2021 of the tile adhesive market revenue. This is primarily owing to the rise in the number of residential and large-scale construction projects that are boosting the usage of tilesHoweverdispersion is the fastest-growing category over the forecast period. The ability of dispersion to deliver chemical resistance and help in strengthening the durability of the finished product. Dispersion-based tile adhesives utilize less water and have higher flexural strength than cement-based tile adhesives, making them attractive alternatives.


November 2021: Nuvoco Vistas Corp Ltd has launched Zero M Water Shield 2K and Zero M Speedex Tile Grout in a virtual event. Developed at the Nuvoco Construction Development and Innovation Centre (CDIC), the products are ready to use and are designed to provide excellent resistance to water ingress, claims Nuvoco Vistas Corp. Zero M Watershield 2K is a two-component acrylic cementitious coating formulated to be mixed on-site and applied over the concrete and masonry surfaces by brush, to provide an elastomeric waterproof membrane.


Tile Adhesive Polymer Chemistry Insights


The tile adhesive market segmentation, based on polymer chemistry, includes acrylic, vinyl acetate ethylene, have-veova, epoxy, styrene-butadiene, polyurethane, and others. The vinyl acetate-ethylene segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. This is due to the increasing demand from electrical & electronics, packaging, and solar power industries. Hence, increasing demand for tile adhesive positively impacts market growth. However, styrene-butadiene is the fastest-growing category over the forecast period. Styrene butadiene improves tensile strength, flexural strength, and corrosion resistance and provides greater flexibility for crack bridging.


Tile Adhesive Application Insights


The tile adhesive market data has been bifurcated by the application of ceramic tile, vitrified tiles, natural stone, mosaic, and glass. The ceramic tile segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030, due to the rising demand for ceramic tiles for decorative applications. However, natural stone is the fastest-growing category over the forecast period due to increased activity in the construction sector.
