By Product Analysis

The silicones segment accounted for the largest share of over 30.0% in 2020, in terms of volume, in the global sealants market. The segment is projected to grow on the account of rising construction activities and investments in infrastructure space. 

Polyurethane adhesive products exhibit superior properties such as fast curing, good abrasion and chemical resistance, and excellent bond strength on various substrates such as metal, plastic, rubber, wood, and glass. These products are generally based on reactive technology and contain polymers, which have urethane linkages.

Epoxy-based products adhere to a wide variety of materials and their superior properties are dependent on the nature of cross-linking polymers. They provide high resistance to chemicals and environments and high-temperature resistance, along with high strength bonding on a variety of substrates. 

By Application Analysis

The paper and packaging segment was the largest segment in the adhesives industry and accounted for a revenue share of over 25.0% in 2020. Flexible packaging is projected to provide new avenues for market players over the coming years.

The building and construction segment is projected to provide numerous opportunities in the industry. This segment in the adhesives and sealants industry is witnessing rapid technological and architectural innovation.

Demand for products in the assembly of electrical and electronics components is projected to benefit the global market. China is among the leading countries for the production of various electrical and electronic components at the global level. 

By Regional Analysis

Asia Pacific dominated the market and accounted for over 35.0% share of the global volume in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic created a sizable impact on various industries such as textile and garments, construction, and automotive in 2020, wherein export trade was also largely impacted.

GCC is one of the key growth engines for the Middle East and Africa. Growing construction activities in the GCC region are likely to fuel the demand for adhesives and sealants over the forecast period. In the recent past, the housing sector in GCC countries did not perform well. This was mainly due to the decline in oil prices and economic slowdown.

Government initiatives for economic recovery are anticipated to fuel the infrastructural developments in Central and South America. The construction industry in countries such as Argentina, Colombia, and Peru is expected to witness growth over the forecast period.
