Non-woven Adhesives Market Growth Prospects to 2022 |

Posted by pooja on June 6th, 2019

Nonwoven adhesives market is expected to garner ,809 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 9.9% during the period 2016-2022. The ethylene vinyl acetate segment dominated the market in 2015, with around half of the market volume share.

Surge in demand for products that have powerful bonds delivery, excellent color stability, improved sustainability, and superior absorbent quality across various end user industries are the factors that drive the growth of the market. In addition, product innovation, low manufacturing cost, and waste minimization supplements the market growth. Traditional nonwoven adhesives are temperature sensitive, and thus soften at elevated temperatures. These adhesives cannot be applied on temperature-sensitive substrates at 375-450F, as they become susceptible to creep or joint movement at higher temperatures, which leads to bond failure and is the major restraint of the market. However, growth in usage of nonwoven adhesives in medical industry is expected to provide new opportunities.

Nonwoven adhesives play a significant role in product transformation in hygiene industry, as these adhesive solutions are compatible with all application techniques and adhere to a range of porous and nonporous substrates. Variety of raw materials are available for production of these adhesives such as ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), styrenic block copolymers (SBC), polyolefin (PO), polyamide, polyester, and polyurethane. These adhesive solutions provide ease of manufacturing, as they can be easily mixed, offer a broad temperature range for application, and set up fast. Their exposure to elevated temperatures results in bond failure, which can be prevented by cross-linking the polymer molecules after setting.

Styrenic block copolymers (SBC) holds one-fourth of the market share, in terms of revenue, in 2015, and estimated to grow at a high CAGR of 10.5% as compared to the other types. The major reason behind higher growth rate of SBC is growing usage in the market owing to low cost and faster bond strength development.
