Market Overview:


Water-based adhesives also known as waterborne adhesives content carrier fluid and additives to reduce its viscosity to be applied at different thickness. These adhesives are formulated using either natural polymers or soluble synthetic polymers. Water-based adhesives are gaining high importance in the market owing to environmentally friendly and economical alternative to solvent-borne adhesives. They are wet bonding, therefore at least one substrate has to be water permeable to allow water to escape from the bond line. Owing to its flexibility and quick setting time, major customers of water-based adhesives are the paper & packaging, building & construction, automotive and woodworking among others. Water-Based Adhesive Market is estimated to grow at CAGR 6% from 2020 to 2027.


Some of the protuberant factors identified in the global water-based adhesives market are increasing demand for water-based adhesives in tapes and labels and huge expenditure in emerging economies. Furthermore, growing packaging industry on account of increasing demand for e-commerce are likely to propel market growth. In addition, regulations laid down in developed regions for usage of low VOC adhesives in order to address the environmental challenges is expected to boost the demand for water-based adhesives. Shifting preference towards green and sustainable adhesives among consumers are expected to offer lucrative opportunity in the global water-based adhesives market. 


However, water-based adhesives are perishable, so lack of extended storage can hinder the market growth.
