Global Adhesives and Sealants Market- Outlook, Regulatory Bodies & Regulations

Posted by anagha on July 31st, 2017

Adhesive is a material used to bind two surfaces together, while sealants are materials with adhesive properties that are used to seal, fill, waterproof, gaps, and joints between two surfaces. Moreover, due to high tensile and shear strength adhesive are classified into two categories such as structural adhesive and nonstructural adhesive. The chemicals formulation and technology involves in adhesive and sealants are similar. Water-based adhesive is expected to dominate the global adhesive market during the forecast period. Moreover, the silicon based sealants is also projected to be dominant segment in the market. Adhesives and sealants are expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period in the construction, packaging, and automobiles industries.

Adhesives and Sealants Market Outlook – Surging demand in Automobile and Construction Industry Augmenting Market Growth

Asia Pacific is expected to be one the major revenue contributor due to its emerging economy and supportive government policies in the region. For instance, Make in India initiative by Government of India aims to raise the country’s passenger vehicle manufacturing to 9.4 million by 2026. Moreover, due to rampant economic growth in Asia Pacific and rapid urbanization, especially in India and China, the demand for adhesive and sealants is expected to witness tremendous growth over the forecast period from various end-use industries that are witnessing burgeoning growth. Demand for modern buildings and commercial complex with glass exteriors and interiors is increasing and in turn is expected to drive growth of the global adhesive and sealants market during the forecast period.

Adhesives and Sealants Market Challenges – Environmental Impact

Carbon dioxide (CO2) and Volatile Organic Compound emission are major environmental issues. Adhesive and sealants such as silver epoxy-based Electronic Conductive Adhesive (ECA) release CO2. Moreover, due to stringent government regulation on release of VOC emission to the atmosphere, end-use industries are actively opting for alternative to organic solvents and dispersing media. For instance, SIKA AG introduced new-generation adhesive SikaBond AT-75 for wood floor bonding, meeting highest EHS regulation. This is expected to be one of the key challenges for adhesive and sealants market during the forecast period. Bio-based based products such as soybean-derived polyols, vegetable-based polyamides, epoxies, and polyisoprenes are increasingly replacing the synthetic materials and additionally reduce the carbon footprints. Water based formulation contribute to a major share in adhesive whereas silicone-based sealant capture major share in sealants market. Adhesives and sealants market is highly dependent on the raw materials such as synthetic fibers, resins, and crude oil. The prices of these raw materials are highly volatile and hamper the growth of the adhesives and sealants market.

Adhesives and Sealants Market – Regulatory Scenario:

  • United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), September, 2008, published Control Technique Guideline (CTG) for industrial adhesives with requirement on Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) content of adhesive application method at facility to have VOC emission of 15 lb/day or more.

  • United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), September 20, 2011, enforced regulation on use of adhesive and sealants which contains chloroform, ethylene dichloride, methylene chloride, perchloroethylene or trichloroethylene.

  • United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), January 01, 1993, banned on use of Adhesives, Sealants, Adhesive Bonding Primers, Adhesive Primers, Sealant Primers, or any other Primer which have a VOC content in excess of 250 g/L less water and less Exempt Compounds.

  • The Council of The European Communities on May 16, 1983, amending directive 77/728/EEC on the approximation of the laws, regulations and administrative provisions of the Member States relating to the classification, packaging and labelling of adhesives, paints, varnishes, printing inks and similar products (83/265/EEC).
