Contact Adhesive Market Size, Share & Trends (2021 - 2026)

The global size of Contact Adhesive Market was valued at USD 6.87 Billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 9.97 Billion by 2026. The global Contact Adhesive market is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 5.47%, in value terms, during 2021 - 2026.

The increasing demand for contact adhesives across various industries is driving the global contact adhesives market. Growing renovation and remodeling activities, rising R&D activities by major players within the market, increased investment in chemical industries in the emerging economies, and an increase in government expenditure on infrastructure development are some factors, which will propel the demand for the contact adhesive market.

Contact adhesives have the ability to bond themselves as dry adhesives as they are polymer-based which have high initial strength. The high initial strength of contact adhesives will make them suitable for different laminating applications. Contact adhesives are often used to bond large areas of non-porous substrates because the adhesive is dried before bonding. The market is impacted by various factors. One of the main factors which improve the market is a rise in applications of adhesives and sealants.

Recent Developments

  • In February 2020, Henkel started functioning its new production facility in Kurkumbh, India, near Pune, Maharashtra. With a complete investment of about USD 59 million, the business unit aims to serve the increasing demand of Indian industries for high-performance solutions in sealants, adhesives, and surface treatment products.  The business aim is to serve the increasing demand of Indian industries with the total investment of USD 59 million that enhance the performance level. Designed as a smart factory, the new plant offers a good range of Industry 4.0 operations and meets the best standards for sustainability.

  • In November 2020, H.B. Fuller launched Full-Care 5885 to fulfil the industry’s increasing demand for natural-based hygiene products. This adhesive will provide 100% cotton binding at very low cost.

Contact Adhesive Market Drivers

The rise of the development industry and its activities is the primary factor driving contact adhesive market growth. The standard joining adhesives like soldering, riveting, welding, and screwing are being replaced by modern and next-generation adhesive systems. The hybrid adhesives were developed depending on alternative raw materials. As compared to the standard PUR construction and assembly adhesives, which contain classified ingredients, the COSMO HD-Adhesives offer alternative systems for users with a reliable consciousness for environmental issues. The increase of renovation activities is predicted to accelerate the economy of the contact adhesive market. The expansion of rehabilitation centers, residential construction activities, and remodeling markets has boosted the expansion of contact sealants. The low VOC adhesives offer very less to the no off-gassing. This feature is predicted to pave the way for various opportunities within the market. The formulations are designed to limit the number of chemicals released into the air when used. The Pidilite Industries formulated the Fevicol Eco fresh, the primary water-based adhesive for HVAC applications. The expansion in emerging countries like the Asia Pacific is anticipated to furnish market growth.

Contact Adhesive Market Restraints

The use of steel and metal in place of contact adhesives are the restraint factors that will alter contact adhesive market growth. Epoxy adhesives, a segment of metal glues, are the high-performance sealants that are implemented in carpentry. The mixture of resin and hardener creates a durable, high-strength bond that dries in minutes and might be used for rebuilding all metal and concrete surfaces. The challenges faced are the volatility in staple prices and also the stringent regulations issued by the environmental organization.

Opportunities in the Contact Adhesive Market

The stringent regulations by the USEPA (the United States Environmental Protection Association), Europe’s Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restrictions of Chemicals (REACH), Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), and other regional regulatory authorities have compelled adhesive & sealant manufacturers to create eco-friendly products with no- or low-VOC levels. The shift towards sustainable products has provided the manufacturers with better growth opportunities. There's a growing demand for environmentally-friendly or green buildings, which provides a chance for the development of green and sustainable adhesive solutions. Green adhesive solutions are made up of renewable, recycled, remanufactured, or biodegradable materials; they're environmentally friendly and supply health benefits to the occupants.

Impact of COVID-19 pandemic on Contact Adhesive Market

COVID-19 pandemic has posed many challenges for the automotive sector. Germany, the USA, UK, Italy, South Korea, Spain, and Japan are among the adversely affected major industrialized economies. As per a study by Boston Consulting Group, despite encouraging reports on progress toward a vaccine, numerous risks remain. It's projected that the sales in Europe and also the US won't rebound to pre-COVID levels until 2023 at the earliest.

COVID-19 has posed many challenges within the construction sector. Social distancing measures, supply chain disruptions, and workforce dislocation have led to the suspension of construction activities in most countries because of the disruptions in supply chains and lack of raw materials and labor. Construction companies with high debts and lower cash reserves faced a credit crunch. However, the development of temporary hospitals and quarantine centers increased with this outbreak of coronavirus.
