Rising Demand in Automotive Industry
The automotive industry is one of the flourishing end-user industries to increase the demand for adhesives in Thailand. A car-manufacturing unit uses about 40 kg of adhesives per vehicle, which opens a huge market for adhesives. The demand for automotive in Thailand has increased in the recent past and is expected to rise at a significant rate. PSA graphics and tapes play a vital role in the manufacturing of automobiles. They also aid in maintaining the performance and aesthetics. Moreover, the increasing R&D and increase in the number of sensors in cars are some factors that have increased the usage of adhesives in the industry.
The labor force and the productivity improvement, urbanization, and higher consumer market are the other reasons for the growth of the automotive industry in Thailand, which also drives the growth of the adhesive market.
Government regulations regarding VOC emissions might restrain the growing Thailand adhesive market.
Moreover, the adhesives demand in the country is increasing gradually, thus boosting the country to go for import of more raw materials, which has affected the country’s export basket negatively.
Acrylics Dominates the Waterborne Adhesives Market
Acrylics have the highest market share in Thailand’s waterborne adhesive market and it is expected to grow at a significant rate. Owing to their high strength, acrylic adhesives are commonly used for building and construction applications, and a specialized variation is widely used for bonding implant prostheses to bones. They find a wide range of applications in the health and medical fields, electronic parts production, and appliance and automotive manufacturing.
The rapidly expanding automotive industry in Thailand is resulting in the increasing consumption of acrylic-based water-borne adhesives. Additionally, increasing industrial investment, robust income growth, and high GDP growth are expected to drive the acrylic adhesives demand in Indonesia.
