Automotive Adhesive and Sealants - Penetrating its Application in Motor Vehicles

Adhesives and sealants being a crucial element of automotive manufacturing are being used in motor vehicles ranging from sports cars to heavy trucks. Beyond traditional applications, such as windshields, brake shoes and threadlockers, adhesives have penetrated into applications which otherwise would have performed only through thermal and mechanical joining methods, including the frame, body, dashboard, engine and weather stripping. As automobiles of present constitute more of plastic and composite parts, mechanical fasteners are not always practical for attaching them. Application of adhesives and sealants enables automakers to simplify their assembly processes. Parts that are bonded together don’t need holes to be drilled or punched, and assemblers don’t need to measure torque or double-check fastening operations. Thus, adhesive and solution not only maintain the integrity of surfaces in vehicle also increases the fuel economy and is considered as an integral part in vehicle manufacturing and offer pool of opportunity for the supplier side and OEMs as well.

Automotive Adhesive and Sealants Market - Regional Insight

North America region represent key market for the growth of automotive adhesive and sealants market. All major OEMs in the region, such as Ford Motor Company and General Motor Company are incorporating more untraditional substrates into their vehicles, hence, requiring more adhesives and sealants volume, driving its demand in the region. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market for automotive industry. The production volume for passenger car and LCV segment in Asia-Pacific accounted for more than half of the global production. The increasing production in the region is complimented by intensifying demand for passenger cars and LCV in the region. The increasing economy and improving standards of living in countries, such as China and India are the factors resulted in increased sale volumes of adhesive and sealants. Further, the increase in automotive production in Thailand and Indonesia would drive the usage of adhesives and sealants in the region. Europe automotive has gone through major changes owing to stringent emissive regulation prompting greater usage of materials light in weight to increase the fuel economy.
