Increasingly, the construction industry uses non-metal substrates because they are lightweight and less expensive. Engineering adhesives have additional potential as a result of the constant engineering activity upgrades in key end-user industries like aerospace, road transportation, marine, rail, electronics and communication, and sports and leisure that aim to make components lighter and more affordable. The market for engineering adhesives is now estimated to be worth US$13 billion. The projected growth rate exceeds the market for adhesives and sealants' typical annual growth rate.


In the global market for adhesives, engineering adhesives account for about 30%. The market for adhesives is anticipated to increase at a rate that is much higher than the average for that sector. Technology formulations that offer high-value answers to certain client needs define the market. These adhesives are employed in a variety of sectors, including furniture, electronics, electric appliances, rail transportation, construction, telecom, marine and offshore operations, automotive, aerospace, and electronics and communication. The traditional joining methods like screws and welding are the main competitors of engineering adhesives.


In terms of revenue growth, Asia Pacific is anticipated to experience the highest CAGR of 8.8% during the projection period. This expansion is credited to China's enormous industrial sector, which includes the building, automobile, energy, and electronics industries. Additionally, according to China's 13th Energy Technology Innovation, Five Year Plan, the nation's wind energy capacity is anticipated to increase to 210 gigawatts by 2020.

In terms of volume, Europe maintained 23.5% in 2018. The country's market is anticipated to be driven by production in the transportation sector, which includes the automobile, aerospace, and marine industries. According to the Aerospace & Defense Industries Association in Europe, the aerospace & defense industry has a yearly revenue of over USD 247 billion. In this industry, there is a sizable demand for adhesive materials for the bonding of composites, metals, and plastics.

In 2018, North America had a 21.2% volume share. A key factor driving the market is rising usage in the packaging and automotive sectors. Given the need for structural bonding applications, the woodworking industry is expected to present a number of opportunities for vendors.
