The structural adhesives market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% between 2017 and 2022
The structural adhesives market is projected to grow from an estimated USD 11.17 billion in 2017 to USD 15.72 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.1% between 2017 and 2022. Growing demand from applications, such as building & construction, bus & truck, automotive, wind energy, marine, aerospace, rail, and others is expected to fuel the growth of the structural adhesives market. The driver for the structural adhesives market is the growing trend and demand for lightweight and low carbon emitting vehicles. Structural adhesives help automotive manufacturers enhance vehicle durability, lower the weight of the vehicle, and also lower carbon dioxide emissions, enabling cost savings. The growth of the structural adhesives market is affected by environmental regulations in the North American and European countries.
Among resins, the market for cyanoacrylate resin is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022
Among resins, the cyanoacrylate segment in the structural adhesives market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Structural adhesives based on the cyanoacrylate resin offer distinct advantages as these are one-part solvent-free adhesives that cure immediately at room temperature and offer high bonding strength. These therefore provide optimized and efficient bonding solutions for various substrates.
Among substrates, the market for composites substrate is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022
The composites substrate segment of the structural adhesives market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, 2017 to 2022. The use of composites in different applications reduce weight and increase efficiency, as composite materials (fiber reinforced plastic and glass fiber reinforced plastic) are lighter than metals, concrete, and brick. These structural adhesives provide strong bonds, and high chemical and heat resistance.
The Asia Pacific structural adhesives market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Among regions, the Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing structural adhesives market. Growth is mainly attributed to booming economies such as China, India, and Taiwan, among other few smaller countries, such as Indonesia, and Vietnam. China is the leader in the market for structural adhesives in terms of demand in the Asia Pacific. India is a rapidly emerging nation in the market due to the growth in various applications in the use of structural adhesives.
