Adhesives and Sealants Market to Depict 5.0% CAGR from 2022 to 2029; Sika Expands Adhesives and Sealants Portfolio in India to Meet Burgeoning Demand

June 22, 2022 | Chemicals & Materials

The global adhesives and sealants market size could surge from USD 65.38 billion in 2022 to USD 92.29 billion by 2029. Expanding application of adhesives and sealants in the construction sector has encouraged leading companies to boost their penetration. The emergence of high-performance formulations and polymers could provide impetus to the industry growth.

According to the latest research report by Fortune Business Insights™ titled, “Adhesives and Sealants Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Adhesive [Technology (Water-Based, Solvent-Based, Hot-Melt, Reactive, Others), End-use Industry (Paper & Packaging, Building & Construction, Woodworking, Consumer/DIY, Automotive & Transportation, Leather & Footwear, Others)], By Sealant [Resin (Silicone, Polyurethane, Emulsion, Polysulfide, Others), End-use Industry (Building & Construction, Automotive & Transportation, Consumer, Others), and Regional Forecasts, 2022-2029,” the market stood at USD 62.63 billion in 2021. It is anticipated to witness 5.0% CAGR during the forecast period.

Supply Chain Disruptions amidst COVID-19 Pandemic Dented Industry Growth

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic did not bode well for the industry growth as building and construction sectors witnessed major disruptions. Temporary shutdown of manufacturing plants and postponement of projects compelled manufacturers and suppliers to rethink their strategies. To illustrate, H. B. Fuller Co. observed an 11% dip in business in Q2 2020 as compared to the same period in the preceding year. Meanwhile, adhesives observed stellar demand in the healthcare sector and the paper & packaging industry.

Arkema Acquired Permoseal to Bolster Presence in South Africa

Prevailing trends suggest industry participants could further their investments in organic and inorganic strategies to tap into markets. To illustrate, in December 2021, Arkema announced the acquisition of Permoseal in South Africa. The company anticipates it will bolster its presence in South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa in construction, industrial, and DIY markets. The project will also help Bostik consolidate its position in the packaging adhesives portfolio. Besides, in July 2020, Arkema acquired Fixatti to propel the global offering of hot melt adhesive solutions in automotive, construction, textile, and other industries. The adhesives and sealants market share will gain traction from investment in strategic approaches.
