Global automotive industry is constantly evolving with new technological innovations to satisfy the highly demanding requirements of the consumers. This situation has induced the development of technically advanced adhesives and sealants used in automotive manufacturing. Adhesives in basic terms are fluidic substances used to join two components either temporarily or permanently. Sealants, on the other hand, can be both fluidic or solid and flexible materials that are used to seal or cover leakages. In search of best types of adhesives and sealants, manufacturers have come up with solutions offering higher thermal stability and durabiltiy. Demand for adhesives and sealants are constantly being created by advancing structural designing and stringent safety requirements. Adhesives and sealants fills the gaps between two components and keep them together, provisioning noise reduction and structural sturdiness to the automotives.

The current generation, especially youngesters, are attracted towards high performance vehicles such as superbikes and sports cars. These high speed vehicles create a lot of noise while operating. But, with usage of noise reduction solutions developed by automotive adhesives and sealants manufacturers, the demand for such vehicles is expected to increase. Thus, the demand of automotive adhesives and sealants is also expected to mirror the demand of such vehicles.

Key Market Driver -

Demand for high performance but silent vehicles creating demand for automotive adhesives and sealants.

Key Market Restraint -

High fluctuations in raw material pricing decelarating the market growth.

However, majority of the automotive adhesives and sealants are manufactured using petrochemicals and petroleum derivatives. The cost of these raw materials are subject to frequent fluctuations, which decreases the profit margin for the  adhesives and sealants manufacturers, thus limiting the market growth.
