Key Market Trends

Water-borne Technology to Witness the Highest Growth Rate

  • Water-based technology is expected to witness the highest growth rate among the technology types during the forecast period.
  • These adhesives are supplied to manufacturers and distributors as either a pre-mixed solution or as formulated dry powders that must be mixed with water, in order to activate its adhesive quality.
  • Water-based adhesives are generally applied as emulsion mixes that are converted to adhesive materials when their water content has evaporated. VOC norms has led to the phasing out of solvent-based adhesives.
  • Many countries, including many regions of the United States and Europe, have set a ban on the use of solvent-borne materials. Hot-melt adhesives are also gaining popularity, due to their fast set speed and excellent adhesive qualities.
  • Hence owing to the above-mentioned factors, water-borne adhesive technology to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific to Dominate the Market

  • Asia-Pacific accounts for the highest share of the global packaging adhesives market currently owing to the high demand from countries like China, Japan, India, etc.
