The automotive sector has grown rapidly due to the rising demand for automobiles worldwide. Additionally, consumers prefer lightweight vehicles, enhancing the demand for light parts to construct automobiles. Consequently, this creates the demand for adhesives that combine different lightweight parts to build a single frame.

Wilmington, Delaware, United States, March 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Transparency Market Research Inc. - The global automotive adhesive market was valued at about US $ 7.2 billion in 2022. However, the market growth is estimated to take the valuation to US $ 11.1 billion by 2031 at a CAGR of 4.9%. This sluggish to moderate market advancement is subjected to the influence of various market forces.

 The demand for lightweight vehicles manufactured by reinforcing carbon fiber with plastics or aluminum alloys is increasing. This improves the quality of the frame used to manufacture an automobile. For this reinforcement, high-quality adhesives that can withstand extreme conditions are required. Due to this, a surge in the requirements for automotive adhesives is observed, which acts as one of the market drivers driving the subject market.

The automobile sector has grown rapidly worldwide due to the increased demand for innovative automobiles. The rise of EVs is another reason for the growth of the automotive market.
