The report “Adhesives and Sealants to 2017” on the US market says 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.
