Packaging Adhesives Market Value and Growth:

The worldwide market for packaging adhesive was valued at $ 11.6 billion in 2021 and is predicted to reach $ 15.16 billion in 2026, with a CAGR of 5.5%.

The global packaging adhesives market is expanding in the near future as a result there is high demand for packaging in almost every industry specifically in the food & beverages industry and pharmaceutical industry. The process of matching adhesive to end use in this highly regulated business has become vital, with applications ranging from over-the-counter medicines and nutraceuticals to blood bags and needles. Packaging has also become an important component of sales and marketing.

Packaging Adhesives Market Trends:

Due to the growing e-commerce industry, the packaging adhesives market has seen extraordinary growth in recent years. As more people buy online, the necessity for high-performing adhesives and hassle-free packaging is becoming increasingly important for retailers and manufacturers. The trend of internet purchasing, in particular, is paving the way for industry development. The growing necessity of food-safe adhesives is another factor driving packaging adhesives forward. Most packs, such as Glass Bottles, have no adhesive contact with the food item, but most packs, such as Liner cartons, Mono cartons, Flex packs, and so on, have indirect contact. As a result, demand for environmentally friendly adhesives is rising. Starbucks, McDonald's, and Hyatt have all stated that they will no longer use plastic straws and are actively looking for alternatives.

Recent Developments in the Packaging Adhesives Market:

  • In the Asia Pacific area, Bostik has introduced the HERBERTSTM 700 product range of high-performance, sustainable, flexible laminating adhesive solutions for food packaging, industrial, and medical industries. The HERBERTS LF794/H180 and LF728/H128, which are based on polyurethane, solvent-free technology, enable clients to easily meet high production demands and quality performance needs while helping the environment.

  • H.B. Fuller has launched two new compostable solutions for the flexible packaging market: Flextra™ Evolution SF1000CP/XR2000CP and Flextra™ Evolution WB1200CP/XR2200CP. In terms of environmental goals and manufacturing benefits, these solutions provide a number of distinct advantages. 

Packaging Adhesives Market Drivers:

The packaging adhesives industry is being driven by customer preference for packaged foods. Many individuals are adopting ready-to-eat meals as their eating habits change. Noodles, spaghetti, soup, bread, and cereal consumption have increased. The packaged food has a longer shelf life and is more resistant to environmental changes. In addition, the demand for beverages is quickly growing, necessitating packaging. As a result, packing adhesives are in great demand. Non-alcoholic drinks are generally offered in bottles, whereas alcoholic beverages are sold in cans. According to Statista, global consumption of packaged water was surpassed 450 billion litres in 2020, while global consumption of alcoholic drinks was exceeded 244 billion litres. As the need for adhesives in beverage packaging, particularly for labelling, grows, so does the demand for adhesives in beverage packaging. The growing need for flexible packaging is another factor driving the packaging adhesives market. Flexible packaging can readily alter the shape, which is why it is so popular nowadays. Bags, pouches, shrink films, tubes, sleeves, and carded packaging are all made with it. Flexible packaging adhesives for fill packing, horizontal flow packaging, laminating, and lidding have become the packaging market's smart option. Flexible packaging is becoming more popular in various sectors, which is driving up demand for packaging adhesives.

Packaging Adhesives Market Restraints:

Issues regarding product safety due to adhesives may impact the packaging adhesive market.

Opportunities in the Packaging Adhesives Market:

The packaging adhesive industry is projected to grow in the near future due to advancements in adhesive technology. Mechanical, thermal, and electrical characteristics adhesives will develop. Smart adhesives, such as switchable kinds that may bind and deboned in response to physical or chemical stimuli, are being developed, and some are currently commercially accessible.

Challenges in the Packaging Adhesives Market:

The implementation of strict regulations by Adhesive and Sealant Council, Inc. poses a challenge for the expansion of the packaging adhesives market.
