The Europe Hot Melt Adhesives Market was valued at USD 1.25 billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD XX billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 5.55% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2020. Hot Melt Adhesives, also known as hot glue, is a solvent-free and thermoplastic material. These adhesives are melted and applied on the surface and then solidifies on cooling to give a strong adhesion. They are applied in the molten state at the temperatures ranging from 120 °C to 180 °C depending on the surfaces which are to be bonded. Hot Melt Adhesives consists of three main components namely, high molecular weight polymer (which provides adhesives the primary and mechanical properties), a tackifier or resin (which provides adhesion and wetting properties), and plasticizer such as wax and oil (to control the viscosity and which enables the adhesives to be easily handled by the small machinery).

Hot Melt Adhesives, owing to their long shelf life, reduced VOC emissions (because of the absence of solvent-borne solutions), and strong adhesion properties, is becoming an integral part of various commercial and industrial sectors. In the Europe Hot Melt Adhesives Market report, we have taken the following major applications into consideration: Packaging, Automotive, Footwear, Construction and Furniture, Bookbinding, Electronics and Electronic Assembly, Non-Woven Application, and Others.

This market is driven by a number of factors, such as increased usage in footwear industry, substitution of solvent-borne adhesives by hot melt adhesives, and growing packaging industry. However, this market faces certain drawbacks, such as high cost associated with switching to hot melt adhesives and volatility in the raw material prices. These factors may act as a roadblock to the growth of the market.

The Europe Hot Melt Adhesives Market, on the basis of type can be broadly segmented into Polyethylene, Polyolefins, Polyamide, Polyurethanes, Ethylene Vinyl Acetate, Styrenic Block copolymer, Others. The market has also been geographically segmented into the Germany, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain, and Rest of Europe. In terms of consumption in 2015, the Germany led the market with a share of XX.XX%. The growing packaging industry and recovering construction industry in the country, will boost the growth of the market.

Furthermore, the adoption of bio-based polyurethane hot melt adhesives, recovering construction industry in the region will offer numerous opportunities in the growth of the Europe Hot Melt Adhesives Market. Some of the major companies dominating this market for its products, services, and continuous product developments are 3M, Arkema Group (Bostik SA), Ashland Inc., Dow Chemicals, Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, and H.B. Fuller.
