Key Growth Opportunities in the Global Adhesives Market to 2026: Hot Melts, Reactive Acrylics and UV Systems Growing in Popularity Due to Safety and Energy Efficiency

Dublin, June 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Adhesives Global Market Report 2022" report has been added to's offering.

The global adhesives market is expected to grow from $69.74 billion in 2021 to $76.77 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.1%. The market is expected to grow to $109.28 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 9.2%.

During the historic period, technological development was a key driver of the global economy. Industries such as the adhesives industry which involve technology benefited from this trend. Technologies such as hot melts, reactive acrylics, and UV systems became popular because of their safety and energy efficiency. Adhesives also replaced mechanical fastening systems due to better performance and overall lower costs. These factors drove the adhesives market during the historic period.

Rising geopolitical tensions had a negative impact on the adhesives market during the historic period. Repercussions of geopolitical tensions included sanctions on Russia, trade protectionism, and heightened military tensions in Middle East. Many countries placed trade restrictions, especially on imports, to boost local production. For instance, Brexit is likely to lead to more trade restrictions between the UK and other countries in Europe. The US is also implementing several trade restrictions, especially with China, to boost its local production.

Many adhesive companies are adopting IoT technologies to connect equipment and smart devices to obtain real-time insights and identify inefficiencies in the manufacturing process. The data obtained is processed, analyzed, and interpreted by plant managers and senior-level management to improve quality and achieve optimum production levels. For example, smart systems give information on the working condition and performance of chemical reactors with embedded software and analytics tools to notify plant operators and managers of possible machine breakdowns. For instance, some of the major companies adopting IoT include BASF SE, The Dow Chemical Company, and H.B. Fuller.
