Polyurethane Resin Leads Automotive Adhesives Market as Governments Push for Environmentally Friendly Vehicle Solutions

Dublin, Oct. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Automotive Adhesives Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global automotive adhesives market reached a size of $5.9 billion in 2022 and is poised for substantial growth in the coming years. Projections indicate that the market will reach $8.0 billion by 2028, exhibiting a robust compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5% during the period from 2023 to 2028.

Automotive adhesives are fluid substances utilized to bond composites, metals, plastics, and materials together in the automotive industry. These adhesives are available in various types, including solvent-based, water-based, and hot melt variants, some of which contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Key constituents used in manufacturing automotive adhesives include ethylene, amine-based resins, propylene, epoxides, acrylics, polyester resins, vinyl acetate monomer, and synthetic materials.

These adhesives find widespread application in bonding and sealing interior and exterior components of automobiles, such as door panels, light covers, armrests, dashboards, lenses, chassis, headliners, consoles, and door skins. They facilitate automation, ensure strong bonds, minimize drying time, enhance cohesive strength, and offer corrosion resistance. Additionally, automotive adhesives contribute to improved crash performance, noise vibration reduction, weight reduction in vehicles, and increased front and rear lateral body stiffness.
