Key Market Trends

Automotive is the largest segment by End User Industry.

  • Epoxy adhesives are thermosetting resins that demonstrate high strength and low shrinkage during curing. These adhesives are tough and resistant to chemicals and environmental damage. Epoxy adhesives offer excellent adhesion to various substrates, superior resistance solvents, and good electrical insulation. In addition, epoxy adhesives offer high hardness to the bond, which is more than 80 shore.
  • The consumption of epoxy adhesives shrunk by 9.66% in 2020 compared to 2019, mainly due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in many countries, including China, India, Japan, and South Korea. Production stopped in most countries due to nationwide lockdowns, supply chain disruptions, and economic slowdowns, which resulted in a decline in the consumption of epoxy adhesives. In 2021, the economic recovery in the countries caused a rise in the production of epoxy adhesives, which registered a growth of 36.8 million in volume.
  • China is the major market for epoxy adhesives in the region, followed by Japan and India. China's demand for epoxy adhesives was nearly USD 1.2 billion in 2021. Automotive and construction are the major end-user industries that use epoxy adhesives for different applications.
  • Automotive is the region's largest consumer industry for epoxy adhesives, owing to the rising vehicle production in the country. Epoxy adhesive is mainly used in structural applications and offers the highest tensile strength, around 35-41 N/mm², among all other resin-based adhesives to bond metal, glass, and plastic. It is expected that vehicle production will reach 66 million units in the region in 2028 from 47.9 million units in 2021. Rising vehicle production is expected to drive the demand for epoxy adhesives over the coming years.

China is the largest segment by Country.

  • When evaluating the efficiency of an epoxy adhesive, it is beneficial to examine the general composition of the chemicals that comprise it. Polymerization of a mixture of two initial components, the resin and the hardener, produces epoxy. Curing begins when the resin is combined with a specific catalyst. Epoxy adhesives stick to a wide range of materials, and their qualities are determined by the system's chemistry and the type of cross-linking available. Exceptional chemical and heat resistance, great adhesion and water resistance, and satisfactory mechanical and electrical insulating qualities are among the most significant performance parameters.
  • Epoxy adhesives, the most generally used structural type adhesive, are commonly available as one-component or two-component systems. One-component epoxy adhesives are typically cured at temperatures ranging from 250 to 300°F, resulting in a product with great strength, strong adherence to metals, and exceptional environmental and harsh chemical resistance.
  • Across all the end-use sectors, automotive is the leading consumer of epoxy globally, holding a share of about 35.7%, followed by building and construction, healthcare, woodworking, and aerospace, with shares of approximately 19.4%, 6.3%, 4.7%, and 2.1%, respectively. The other end-use industries hold about 31.1%%. Across the automotive industry, the rising adoption of sustainability is expected to increase EV production across the Asia-Pacific region. Owing to this reason, emerging nations are moving toward limiting the consumption of conventional energy in the automotive industry. The factor tends to increase the demand for electronic components for vehicles and, thus, boost the consumption of epoxy adhesives across the region.
