Adhesives & Sealants

US demand to rise 2.2% annually through 2017

US demand for adhesives and sealants will grow 2.2 percent per annum to 9.8 billion pounds in 2017, valued at $11.8 billion. Gains will be driven by a better outlook for major adhesives and sealants markets such as paper packaging, motor vehicles, and building construction, following the recession-plagued 2007-2012 period. Demand will also benefit from trends toward increased usage of adhesive bonding compared to alternative joining technologies, such as mechanical fasteners, in product assembly applications. However, advances will be limited by trends toward high solids formulations and lower application weights, as well as market maturity and sluggish growth in a number of leading applications.

Reactive adhesives, sealants to exhibit fastest advances

Natural adhesives and sealants will remain the largest product type through 2017, accounting for nearly 40 percent of demand. However, natural products will also see the weakest gains going forward, as the bulk of demand consists of low value starch adhesives used in corrugated cardboard production, a highly mature and slow growing application. The most rapid advances are expected for reactive adhesives and sealants, fueled by the rebounding manufacturing market, as well as product substitution trends toward higher value materials. Hot melts will also see healthy gains, as their amenability to fast processing speeds will promote opportunities in the packaging market, in addition to their lack of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. Despite decades of losing share to alternative formulations, solvent-based adhesives and sealants will see above average gains in demand, bolstered by a turnaround in the construction sector and product reformulation efforts to lower VOC emissions.

Construction to be most rapidly growing market

Among adhesives and sealants markets, the fastest growth is forecast for construction, which will rebound strongly from the sharp declines of the 2007-2012 period. Construction is a particularly important outlet for sealants, which are widely used in both building and nonbuilding applications. The large packaging market, which accounted for nearly 60 percent of adhesives and sealants demand in 2012, will exhibit the slowest gains, hampered by weakness in the dominant paper packaging segment. In the manufacturing and assembly market, fastest growth is expected for tapes and labels, motor vehicles, and machinery, while nonwoven disposables, furniture, and smaller volume outlets such as bookbinding will rise at a subpar rate. Nearly all markets, however, will see an improvement in adhesives and sealants demand from the performance of the 2007-2012 period.
