Adhesives are substances applied to one surface or both surfaces of two separate items that binds them together and resists their separation. The term ‘adhesives’ is used interchangeably with glue, cement, mucilage, or paste. The adhesives industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing adhesives, glues and caulking compounds.

The global adhesives market is expected to reach around $105 billion in 2020. This can be attributed to the expected increase in the global adhesives mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

In 2016 many adhesives companies said they were willing to pursue acquisitions in the next 12 months. In addition, M&A interest is likely to be fueled by stronger corporate balance sheets, liquid debt markets, and continued favourable interest rates. For example, Royal Adhesives & Sealants LLC recently announced it has acquired Adhesive Systems Inc.

in 2016 . Increases in mergers and acquisitions have led to a stronger market presence in multiple regions for many adhesives companies.

The segments in the adhesives market were water-based, solvent-based, hot-melt-based and reactive & others.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the adhesives market in 2017, accounting for around 45% market share. North America was the second largest region accounting for around 22% market share. South America was lowest region accounting for around 3.5% market share.
