Adhesives and sealants are often grouped together, as they both are applied to the surfaces of materials to adhere and seal them together. They are generally available in the liquid form, which is viscous in nature, with no or little flow characteristics. Adhesives are majorly chosen for their bonding and holding power and have high tensile and shear strength. Adhesives are of two varieties, namely structural adhesives (strength is vital for the success of the assembly) and non-structural adhesives (generally have low strength, are used to bond weak substrates and for temporary fastening). However, sealants are majorly selected for their ability to resist relative movement of the substrates, to fill gaps, and to contain or exclude another material. They have less strength compared to adhesives, but are more flexible in nature.
Adhesives and sealants, owing to their ability to bind different materials together by distributing stress more efficiently across the joint, are becoming an integral part of various commercial and industrial sectors. In the global adhesives and sealants market report, we have considered the following major end-user sectors, building and construction, paper, board, & packaging, transportation , woodworking and joinery, footwear & leather, healthcare, electrical & electronics and others.
The paper, board, and packaging segment accounted for XX% share of the global adhesives market, while building and construction segment accounted for XX% global sealants market in 2015.
This market is driven by a number of factors, such as the accelerating demand from the automotive industry, shifting focus towards composites, and a strong demand from the well-established construction industry in the region. However, this market faces certain drawbacks, such as stringent environmental regulations regarding VOC emissions, and volatility in raw material prices. These factors may act as a roadblock to the growth of the market.
The global adhesives market, based on technology, can be broadly segmented into water-borne adhesives, solvent-borne adhesives, reactive adhesives, hot melts adhesives, and others. These are again segmented according to the sub-segmentations of the technology. The global sealants market, based on product type, can be broadly segmented into silicone sealants, polyurethane sealants, acrylic sealants and polyvinyl acetate sealants. The Pressure Sensitive Adhesives segment has been further segmented on the basis of technology, application, resins and mode of application into corresponding sub-segments. The Middle-East and African countries considered in the study are Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, South Africa and Egypt.
The Adhesives and Sealants Market in Middle-East and Africa is expected to grow with a substantial pace owing to shifting consumer focus towards flexible packaging and huge infrastructural investments in Africa to boost the demand of adhesives & sealants in the region. These factors are expected to offer excellent opportunities for the growth of market in the forecast period. Some of the major companies dominating this market for its products, services, and continuous product development are 3M, Dow Chemicals, Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, H.B. Fuller and Huntsman Corp., to name a few.
