The global tile and marble adhesives market size was USD 3.95 billion in 2020. The market is projected to grow from USD 4.34 billion in 2021 to USD 8.00 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 9.1% during the 2021-2028 period. Asia Pacific dominated the tile and marble adhesives market with a market share of 49.11% in 2020. 

The global COVID-19 impact has been unprecedented and staggering, with product/service witnessing a negative demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of 0.76% in 2020. The sudden decline in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Due to increased demand from the residential sector, the worldwide market is likely to rise significantly. Cement-based or polymer-based tile and marble adhesives are used to adhere tiles and marbles for a variety of flooring applications in bathrooms, kitchens, residential areas, commercial spaces, and other areas.

COVID-19 Pandemic: Falling Revenue and Increasing Challenges to Hinder Market Growth

The COVID-19 epidemic has been particularly hard-hitting, causing widespread disruption and posing numerous challenges. The epidemic had a significant impact on the worldwide economy and disturbed people's lives in unforeseen ways. Due to the rapid increase in infection cases, company operations, financial markets, supply chains, capital projects, and a variety of other business activities came to a standstill. Government-imposed guidelines and rules forced a halt to production and commercial operations. Various projects in the building industry have come to a halt, putting project owners in a precarious financial situation.

In addition, the tile and marble adhesives industry's supply chain as well as production activities were harmed by worker migration and informal sector workers. Because of the cash flow uncertainties caused by the lockdown, potential buyers were hesitant to take out loans or pay higher EMIs for new residential and commercial spaces. Malls, offices, businesses, gyms, gaming zones, and movie theatres have all closed, resulting in a drop in demand for commercial infra spaces. According to official data issued by the National Statistical Office (NSO), India's construction and finance sectors experienced a 14.5 percent fall in growth from April 2020 to March 2021.

The tile and marble adhesives sector is projected to be revived if the World Health Organization (WHO) and government rules for avoiding infection and other remedial actions are followed.

Increasing R&D for Bio-based Adhesives to Bolster Market Growth

Bio-based resources are gaining popularity in a variety of industries due to their low environmental impact and long-term viability. Renewable materials created from biopolymers derived from sustainable resources are being investigated extensively in the field of tile and marble adhesives. However, their long-term viability is rarely enough to justify the commercialization of such adhesives, especially if the new materials cannot be used as a drop-in replacement for existing technologies. The advantages of feedstock vegetable oils such as hydrophobicity, lower human and ecological toxicity, and the performance of bio-based adhesives compared to petroleum-based adhesives are areas of research that are projected to be an emerging trend.


Swelling Reconstruction and Renovation Activities to Propel Market Growth

By the conclusion of the projection period, the market is expected to have grown significantly. In most cases, tile and marble adhesives are used in the installation of flooring. Increasing commercial and residential development and renovation activities around the world are predicted to boost demand for flooring, which would in turn boost demand for tile and stone adhesives. Various government initiatives to boost industrial expansion, tourism, and development will help the rapid growth. For example, the Indian government has committed to investing USD 1.4 trillion in the National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP) by 2030, with urban infrastructure accounting for 16% of the total.

In addition, the Las Vegas Convention Center people mover tram, a 1.5-mile-long subterranean tunnel, is one of the megaprojects in the United States that is predicted to boost demand for tile adhesives. Marble is also commonly used in kitchen and bathroom floors. One of the primary factors pushing residential construction is the growing population. The expansion of the worldwide tile & marble adhesives market is predicted to be boosted by the proliferation of new residential spaces and properties to address the housing special crisis for the expanding population.

Growing Popularity of Open-air Entertaining Spaces to Drive Market

Over the last decade, the popularity of open spaces such as outdoor hotels, cafes, play arenas, swimming pools, and lounges has skyrocketed. These areas are usually constructed to be attractive and pleasant to the eye. Ceramic tiles, stones, and marble flooring are all luxurious. In addition, the hotel and accommodation industry is booming due to the growing tourism sector. The market for tile and marble adhesives will be driven by the high demand for tiles and marble for the development of such areas.


Presence of Substitutes of Tiles in Market May Hamper Market Growth

Wood, vinyl flooring, composite flooring, cement flooring, and other flooring substitutes for tiles and marbles are available on the market. The adoption of these flooring solutions is likely to reduce demand for tiles and marble, putting a damper on the market for tile and marble adhesives.
