The major driver for the adhesives & sealants market is growth of building & construction industry.

Population growth and urbanization are key drivers propelling the residential construction sector in developing nations like China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Brazil, and Mexico. The rising demand for permanent housing in these regions is consequently boosting the need for adhesives and sealants. Within the construction industry, adhesives and sealants find diverse applications such as carpeting, tiling, wallpapers, and exterior insulation systems, as well as in securing curtain wall panels and insulating glass units.

According to Global Construction Perspectives and Oxford Economics, the global construction output is projected to increase by 85% to reach USD 15.5 trillion by 2030, with China, the US, and India contributing up to 57% of this growth. This upsurge is attributed to economic recovery in these major economies.

Factors such as globalization, urbanization, improving standards of living, rising purchasing power parity (PPP), infrastructural development, and the growing necessity to construct megacities in emerging economies are driving the construction industry worldwide. In developed countries, the construction industry accounts for approximately 5% of GDP, while in developing economies, it represents around 8%. There is a significant anticipated demand for infrastructure in emerging economies over the next two decades, with global infrastructure investment estimated to reach USD 3.7 trillion annually by 2040.

Water-based technology segment is expected to hold largest share of the adhesives technology & resin market during the forecasted period.

The expansion of the water-based adhesives market segment is fueled by increasing demand within the building and construction sector in North America, alongside the emergence of new infrastructure projects in India, Taiwan, and other developing nations globally. Water-based adhesives, renowned for their excellent adhesion properties across diverse substrates, are extensively utilized in a wide array of packaging applications. These include bookbinding, paper bags, cartons, labels, foils, films, paperboard decals, wood assembly, automobile upholstery, and leather binding.

Paper & packaging by adhesives application segment holds the largest segment in overall adhesives market during forecast period.

The packaging industry worldwide is witnessing expansion primarily driven by burgeoning markets in less developed regions, where urbanization is prompting shifts in consumer lifestyles, thus fueling the demand for packaged goods. Additionally, the e-commerce sector is contributing significantly to this growth trajectory. Economic advancement and demographic transitions are key catalysts propelling the packaging industry forward. With anticipated income growth, consumer expenditure on packaged goods is expected to rise. Moreover, the packaging industry is experiencing heightened demand for pharmaceutical products, particularly in developed markets such as Japan, driven by increasing life expectancy rates.

Silicone segment, by sealants resin type holds the largest segment in overall sealants market during forecast period.

Silicone is at the forefront of the overall sealants market, with polyurethane trailing closely behind. The market for silicone-modified polyether sealants has extended beyond its original Japanese production base to encompass larger markets in North America and Europe. The adoption of silicone sealants for a multitude of automobile bonding applications, such as sealing joints, gaps, and cracks, forming low-temperature gaskets, and replacing windscreens, as well as bonding headlamps, fog lamps, tail lamps, lamp covers, caps, and bulb mounting sockets, is driving the growth of this segment.

Building & construction application segment accounted largest share of the global sealant market during forecasted period.

The building and construction sector holds the largest portion of the sealants market. In various applications, sealants also serve as adhesives. For instance, in structural glazing for glass-walled buildings, sealants not only seal but also bond the glass to the building framework. While sealants may lack the high tensile strength typically associated with adhesives, they offer exceptional durability and reliability when exposed to conditions such as high humidity, chemical exposure, or electrical stress. Silicones, in particular, enable some movement between bonded parts, thus alleviating shearing stresses that may arise from differences in thermal expansion among different materials.

Asia Pacific region likely to account the largest share of the global adhesives & sealants market during forecasted period.

Asia Pacific has established itself as a prominent hub for the production and consumption of adhesives and sealants, driven by growing domestic demand, rising income levels, and abundant access to resources. The region leads in automobile production and the automotive and transportation industry stands out as a significant consumer of adhesives and sealants. Economic expansion in Asia Pacific, notably in emerging markets like India, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, is fueling the surge in infrastructure projects, thereby boosting the demand for adhesives and sealants in the building and construction sector.
