Tackifiers are chemical compounds used in composing adhesives to boost the tack or stickiness of the adhesive. Tackifiers are usually resins, hydrogenated hydrocarbon resins and their mixtures and terpene-phenol resins. Tackifiers have characteristics like low molecular weight, glass transition and pliable temperature above room temperature which provides suitable viscoelastic properties.

The global Tackifiers market is projected to grow during the forecast period of 2017-2024. The growing consumption of tackifiers in the packaging industry for pressure sensitive adhesives and recent upgradations of hydrocarbon producing plants are some of the key factors expected to drive the growth of the Tackifiers market.

The Tackifiers market is segmented on the basis of geography, type, form, application and end-user. The segmentation of Tackifier market by product type is on the basis of Synthetic Tackifiers & Natural Tackifiers. The classification of the application is Pressure Sensitive Adhesives (PSA), Hot Melt Adhesives (HMA) and others. The Form of Tackifier is classified in three sections, Solid Tackifiers, Resin Dispersion Tackifiers and Liquid Tackifiers. The Tackifier market on the basis of Geography is segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe and the Rest of the world.
