10 Most Promising Industrial Adhesives Solutions Companies - 2020

The year 2020 promises to be another benchmark for the global industrial adhesive market. Fueled by the increased demand from downstream markets (construction, packaging, and automotive sectors), the adhesive market is expected to show a CAGR of 5.9 percent by 2025. With increased strength, strong binding properties, better insulating characteristics, and level of customizability, the modern-day adhesives and sealants can be formulated in multiple viscosities. Hence, it can effectively revamp the traditional methods (welding and riveting) and eradicate the anomalies resulting in the heat-affected zone of the material. In addition, properties such as high weight handling strength, resistance to stressful conditions, mechanical and chemical resistance, shock-proof, flexibility, and others are making adhesives a popular replacement for mechanical fasteners in packaging applications.

The ongoing demand for lightweight cars with streamlined modern designs to facilitate lesser wind resistance and enable high speeds is propelling the use of adhesives in automobiles. Also, industrial adhesives are widely used to assemble and pack medical devices and equipment in the packaging sector, among others. Furthermore, solvent-based polyurethanes, such as PCP are being heavily used in the manufacture of footwear to make it long-lasting and waterproof. Hence, from acrylics to polyvinyl acetate and epoxy resins, adhesives have deeply penetrated each market category. Already creating ripples among consumers, advanced adhesive bonding technologies are thereby reducing time, lowering costs, optimizing ROI, and improving efficiency.
