Worldwide Hot Melt Adhesive Industry to 2026 - Featuring Dow, Sika and Wacker Chemie Among Others


Dublin, Oct. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Hot Melt Adhesive Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global hot melt adhesive market reached a value of US$ 6.75 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, the analyst is continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Hot melt adhesives are normally solid formulations that are based on thermoplastic polymers. They are usually solids under normal temperature but get activated and turn into liquids when they are heated above their softening point. Upon solidification, they return to a physical state that possesses structural integrity and can act as an adhesive. These adhesives are manufactured by blending thermoplastics with waxes, plasticizers, fillers, resins, and antioxidants. Hot melt adhesives can be applied in several ways, including extrusion, screen printing, spiral spraying, melt blowing, slot die coating, etc. In comparison to other adhesives, hot melt adhesives bond instantly with plastics, ceramics, glass, paper, rubber, wood, metal, etc. As a result, they are widely adopted across the packaging, construction, electronics, textiles, and automotive industries.

The growing packaging sector is primarily driving the demand for hot melt adhesives for sealing, assembling, and labeling corrugated boxes and paperboard cartons. Moreover, hot melt adhesives are also used for assembling car seat covers and carpets, thereby experiencing high demand in the automobile industry. Additionally, the increasing demand for fully-assembled and laminated furniture is also augmenting the market for these products. Rising infrastructural development across various emerging economies, such as India, China, Vietnam, etc. is further propelling the use of hot melt adhesives for binding ceramics, wood panels, flooring materials, and reengineered plastics. Apart from this, the rising adoption of customized and flexible packaging in the food and beverage sector is also driving the demand of hot melt adhesives as they don't contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can result in foul odor and can also negatively impact the food quality. Moreover, the advent of the PUR technology has led to the introduction of advanced product variants providing high heat resistance, UV protection, and superior binding strength, creating a positive impact on the market growth.
