The United States Construction Adhesives & Sealants Market size is estimated at USD 3.08 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 3.85 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 5.74% during the forecast period (2024-2028).

High demand for adhesives and sealants is expected in the coming years with new construction reaching 7.1 billion square feet by 2028

  • Resins impart the required physical and chemical properties such as UV resistance, heat resistance, and tensile strength in the adhesives that can be used in specific applications. New construction is expected to grow to 5.8 billion square feet in 2022 from 5.6 billion in 2021.
  • The construction adhesives and sealants recorded a sudden growth of 5.12% in volume in 2021 due to the economic recovery, regularization of raw materials supply, and reopening of production facilities in the United States, which the COVID-19 pandemic impacted in 2020. During the pandemic, lockdowns across the country caused the shutdown of production facilities and a decline in the consumption of adhesives.
  • These adhesives are segmented into different resins, of which polyurethane and acrylic resin-based adhesives are widely used in construction applications. These adhesives are known as structural adhesives, which offer high tensile strength in the range of 5 to 8 N/mm². They are used in construction to bond decorative floor coverings and ceramic tiles adhesives, seal metal parts into concrete, bond a door frame into masonry, and many other applications.
  • The United States accounts for the highest consumption of construction adhesives and sealants, accounting for nearly 70% of the North American market in 2021 because of the rising demand for residential and non-residential construction. The new building and constructions in the country are expected to reach 7.1 billion square feet by 2028 and, thus, drive the demand for construction adhesives and sealants over the forecast period.

United States Construction Adhesives & Sealants Market Trends

Government's' investments such as the Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) program of USD 7.25 billion for FY 2022-2026 to increase construction in the country

  • The United States is the largest country for construction activities in the North American region. The country had a GDP of USD 25,350 per capita, with an expected growth rate of 3.7% Y-o-Y in 2022. The construction industry contributes nearly 4.2% of the US GDP. The factors affecting the US construction industry are new investments, residential & non-residential constructions, government policies, and others.
  • Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, construction spending in the United States in 2020 was higher compared to 2019, amounting to USD 1469.1 billion in 2020 compared to USD 1391 billion in 2019. Spending grew further in 2021 and is forecast to increase in the future.
  • Public sector construction spending declined in 2021, recording USD 346.3 billion compared to USD 361.2 billion in 2020. However, the private sector construction spending increased in 2021 and was valued at USD 1,245.4 billion in 2021 compared to USD 1107.9 billion in 2020.
  • The residential house construction, including privately‐owned housing units authorized by building permits in January, was at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1,899,000. This was 0.7% above the revised December rate of 1,885,000 and 0.8% above the January 2021 rate of 1,883,000. ​​
  • In March 2022, the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) announced that the Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) program would distribute USD 7.25 billion for FY 2022-2026 to all states and regions to build multimodal freight and highway projects of national or regional significance. These factors are expected to boost construction activities in the United States over the forecast period.
