Growing Demand from Automotive Industry
The major use of Epoxy adhesives used in automotive industry is reflected in the structural bonding component, which includes components that include long lasting bonding. Thus, the epoxy adhesives market is directly related to the automotive production. Developments in the recent times pertaining to the adhesives sector has resulted in the production of lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles. Furthermore, it has been observed that during new car assessment programs and crash tests, vehicles bonded with adhesives perform better, compared to welded vehicles, as they do not affect the substrate used in the automobile assembly. This is further increasing the use of epoxy adhesives in the automotive sector
In 2017, the Chinese automotive sector witnessed the increase in use of New Energy Vehicles. China topped the production of NEVs, with an increase of more than 25% in production in 2017, thus, making the country open to international automobile manufacturers. This factor can further propel the growth of epoxy adhesives in the region
Construction to Hold the Largest Share
The construction end-user accounts for approximately 30% of the total market in 2017. These adhesives are used for joining concrete, brickwork, masonry, elastomeric bearings, timber, ceramic tiles, aluminum, and steel. Moreover, with the increasing applications of plastics, wood and composites in building, the applications of epoxy adhesives in construction is also on rise. Pre-stressed concrete also make use of epoxy adhesives in conjunction with water borne technology. The no VOC emission policy of water borne technology will make sure that these adhesives will have their stronghold in the market during the forecast period
China is Set to Dominate the Region
The Chinese epoxy adhesives market is dominated by a large number of small and medium scale enterprises. Major epoxy adhesives company such as 3M have manufacturing plants in China. Therefore, the overall production of adhesives in the country is expected to increase in comparison to the previous years. The growth in its end-user industry is also expected to provide an increase to its market and is providing the required stimulus for the regional manufacturers in the country. Major end-users in the country include construction followed by automotive. Moreover, other countries in the region, such as India and Japan are also expected to witness steady growth.
