Automotive Adhesives Market Overview:

The global automotive adhesives market size is estimated to rise from USD 8.5 billion in 2020 to USD 10.4 billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 5.3% during the foreseen period. This increase in market value can be attributed to the strong demand for low-carbon light vehicles. This increase in market value can be attributed to the strong demand for low-carbon light vehicles. Adhesives are the most versatile adhesive agents available today and are used by automakers to make cars lighter and more durable. Adhesives consist of precise blends of synthetic rubber elastomers, resins, and agents or additives used to improve specific characteristics, depending on the end-use. There is a growing demand for adhesives in passenger cars, buses, heavy trucks, and light commercial vehicles, which should stimulate the market over the forecast period.

What Are Automotive Adhesives?

Adhesives are lightweight materials employed to combine metals, composites, plastic, and other materials. They are highly being deployed in the automotive market for joining different vehicle components like closures and structural modules. The rise in the adoption of adhesives among vehicle manufacturers decreases the mass of the vehicle, escalates front & rear lateral body stiffness, improves crash performance, and lessens noise, vibration, and harshness. In addition to that, adhesive bonding results in the formation of new innovative vehicle body designs and combined material plans consisting of high strength steels, nonferrous metals, plastic, and composites. Moreover, adhesives provide high joining strength across diverse substrates and can be employed to attach dashboards, door panels, electronics, light covers, and lenses and also steel and alloyed components. Adhesive, or glue, is an organic or inorganic chemical thing that can be applied either on one or both surfaces, which are meant to be bonded together. It can be available naturally or can be artificially produced. The adhesives confer significant benefits to the final product over the other joining techniques like mechanical fastening, thermal bonding, welding, sewing, and others.

Automotive Adhesives Market Drivers and Restraints:


 The global automotive adhesives market is showcasing an average expansion owing to the current slowdown in demand in the automotive business and rising employment of these adhesives. Some of the significant physical properties of the automotive adhesives include the ability to join various kinds of materials together, equally distribute the stress across the joint and lines, and improve the design flexibility of the end product. Automotive adhesives may be permanent or temporary, weak or strong, flexible or hard depending upon their kind. There are some sealants, which have adhesive-like qualities that are generally known as the adhesive-sealants or structural sealants. The product finds broad applications in the automotive market, including the exterior, interior, under the hood parts, embedded electronic systems, and body-in-white (BIW).

 The expansion of the market is driven by an increase in sales of automotive adhesives due to underlying strength in vehicle sales, technological developments in the manufacturing of automobiles, and the adoption of smart cars. Furthermore, metallic components are restored with composites to join with adhesives that lead to a reduction of weight of motors and enhancement in fuel efficiency. In addition to that, the deployment of adhesives has resulted in the reduction of noise, vibration, and harshness vehicles that boosts the global automotive adhesives market expansion. Furthermore, the use of an adhesive offers high flexibility and improved esthetic look to the component or part.


 A major limitation of the global automotive adhesive market growth is longer curing time together with a decrease in resistance at high temperature. Adhesives take longer time in order to offer reliable joining between the two components and to achieve ultimate strength. 


 A major driver of the global automotive adhesive market is the capability of an adhesive to join any similar or dissimilar components of various shapes. Brittle materials, like glass, can be joined quickly by an adhesive. Moreover, binding the components or parts with adhesive does not cause deformation or corrosion of the components being linked, supporting the business to grow further.


 The joining ability of an adhesive reduces as the temperature escalates, which is a critical challenge of the global automotive adhesives market.
