Contact Adhesives are usually based on solvent solutions of neoprene traditionally applied to both surfaces to be bonded, and two surfaces may be joined to form a strong bond with high resistance to shearing force. According to the publisher, the global Contact Adhesives market is expected to witness a significant growth rate during the forecasted period. Factors like the ability to bond themselves as dry adhesives films with high initial strength have increased the usage in the construction sector, thereby expected to drive the global contact Adhesives market. Further, the robust demand for Contact Adhesives across several end-use industrial verticals, growing applications scope such as automotive industry. Furthermore, volatility in raw material prices & stringent environmental regulations regarding VOCs is thus expected to drive the global Contact Adhesives market. Neoprene provides various resistant properties like a tear, abrasion, solvent, oil aging weather resistance. However, the rising usage of steel and metal in manufacturing furniture is significant to hinder the widening of the contact adhesives market in the forecasted period.

Contact adhesives are used extensively in the assembly of automotive parts, furniture, leather goods & decorative laminates. These are effective in the bonding of plastics.

The building & construction industry is the prime user of Contact Adhesive and is projected to drive the global Contact Adhesives market. The properties of Contact Adhesives comprise resistance from thermal expansion, quick resistance to corrosion, & weathering conditions, high cohesive strength, the elastic modulus of a substrate, & environmental resistance, especially from UV light, which makes it extensively useful for applications in building & construction industry. In building & construction, the Contact Adhesive is used for carpet laying, countertop lamination, drywall lamination, roofing, wall coverings, & resistant flooring, among others. They are mainly used in wooden flooring & artificial turf, owing to their property of strain crystallization, and the use of Contact Adhesive in the construction sector is considered to be steady. The increase in new construction activities and numerous advantages & features presented by Contact Adhesive, such as moisture resistance & temperature resistance, are also anticipated to act as a significant growth driver fueling the market's growth. Further, with such robust growth in construction activities, the demand and production in the furniture market are anticipated to increase at a substantial rate in the coming years.

Some market's key players are Henkel, H. B. Fuller, Arkema, 3M, Sika AG, Huntsman Corporation, and RPM International Inc.

The Asia-Pacific region dominated the global market shares. The robust demand from industries, such as automotive, construction, footwear, furniture, & packaging, is likely to drive the growth of Contact Adhesives in the region. The automotive & production capacity sales have constantly been increasing since the last decade as growing industrialization & globalization, particularly in developing economies. The automotive industry, an increase in expenditure by consumers, & a shifting trend towards a high standard & comfortable lifestyle have increased the need for vehicles and shifted from welding activities of engine parts assembly to Contact Adhesives. Ongoing efforts in the automotive industry to replace the metal component with composites to improve fuel - efficiency are projected to propel Contact Adhesives market growth during the forecast period. The rising environmental awareness among consumers and stringent ecological norms from developed & developing regions drive the demand for contact adhesive with low volatile organic compounds (VOC) emitting material like water-borne adhesives. Contact Adhesives can bond large areas of non-porous substrates due to their high initial strength, making them ideal for various laminating applications in auto-adhesion & packaging of paper boards.

In November 2019, Bostik launched Born2Bond, a new range of innovative engineering adhesives for various applications such as automotive, electronics, luxury packaging, and medical devices. The company has introduced this new creative product due to the environmental and health, and safety regulations and rising need for the more adaptable and faster-curing process from various industries.

In 2019, Chemique Adhesives announced the launch of its new polyurethane compound called Bondseal 1128, which is used for sealing and bonding applications in various industries, including commercial, transport, and construction.
