Adhesive, popularly identified as glue, mucilage, or paste, is any non-metallic substance applied to one or both surfaces of two separate items that binds them together and resists their separation. They polymerize in the presence of a weak base, such as surface moisture, and will bond well to a wide range of substrates. The recent publication of titled "Global Instant Adhesive Market Outlook, 2026" categorizes the market to forecast the revenues and analyze the trends in segments, based on curing process (Conventional & Light-Cured), Chemistry (Cyanoacrylate & Epoxy-based), Application (Industrial, Woodworking, Transportation, Consumer, Electronics). The report also aims at estimating the size and future growth potential of the instant adhesives market across 5 regions & 19 countries. Factors such as drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges influencing the growth of the instant adhesives market have also been studied in the report. The report portrays a clear picture of the market with the help of 29 figures & 87 tables.
The market for adhesives is less capital intensive in nature and is highly fragmented and competitive, due to the presence of numerous multinational and regional players. The global market in the year 2015 posed at USD 1.46 Billion, with automotive, construction, and food packaging being the major demand market drivers. COVID-19 has posed many challenges across all major sectors. Major economies across the world, such as the US, Germany, the UK, Italy, South Korea, Spain, and Japan, are among the severely affected countries by the pandemic. The global instant adhesive market witnessed a drop of USD 0.091 Billion between the period of 2019 and 2021. The growth of this market is largely driven by increased demand from the medical and transportation segments. Manufacturers are trying to cater to the increasing demand, which, in turn, is to aid the market to grow with an anticipated CAGR of 8.95%.
Curing is a chemical process in which the adhesives crystallize completely. The adhesive then attains its final properties and builds up its final strength. The characteristics of the adhesive also change through this process, literally forming 'a strong bond'. For conventional instant adhesives, the monomer of overflowed portion at the bonding vaporizes and reacts with moisture in the air, and becomes a polymer. The conventional adhesive market in the year 2015 was valued to USD 1.30 Billion, leading the market. Labels are being highly publicized in the food services sector. Hence, companies in the adhesives market are gaining efficacy in microsphere adhesive technology to tap value-grab opportunities with the help of label applications. Through the end of the forecasted period, the market is expected to witness a growth of 13.08% in the light-cured process segment.
Cyanoacrylate adhesives are one-part, room-temperature curing adhesives accessible in an extensive range of viscosities, which are also known for fast and reliable bonds with instant high-performance bonding of frequent materials, such as rubber, metals, wood, plastic, and polystyrene. Thus the cyanoacrylate adhesive segment visibly dominated the market with a value of USD 1.22 Billion in the year 2015 and growing to more than 81% of the market in 2020. Although epoxy glue is widely known as structural or engineering glue used in various industries, there are many other types of epoxy glues developed for a wide range of uses including applications on common articles at home. Through the forecasted period, the market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 11.78%. Epoxy resins are more expensive to produce than other types of resins. This is because the raw materials required for manufacture cost a lot more than other low-end resins and the process of the production is complicated with a low tolerance for errors.
Whether for smartphones or sports shoes, insulating glass windows, cars, airplanes or even repairs in the recycling industry: adhesive bonding technology is an innovative key technology in a wide variety of industries today - and its potential is still not fully utilized. The market is highly dominated by the electronic segment accounting for over 20% of the market share since 2015.
Globally, the Asia-Pacific dominated the market across the world, with robust demand from the end-user industries, such as packaging, transportation, electronics, construction, and furniture. The demand for cosmetics and food and beverage products is expected to grow due to the growing population and demand for quality products, urbanization, and consumers inclining toward technology, hence, fueling the demand for the packaging industry in the region. The European market contributes significantly due to the presence of some of the largest manufacturers and vendors in the region, such as Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, Bostik SA, KENT Europe, 3M, etc. The growing automotive industry is driving the market in North America with the second largest contributor in the global market. Hence, with such robust growth of the packaging industry across the world, the demand in the adhesives and sealants market is also expected to increase during the forecast period.
The increasing need for instant bonding for various applications and growing demand from the electronics industry are driving the market growth. Marketers have been successful in making the best use of the situation by catering to the varied requirements in the market. The top 3 players in the global market are Henkel AG & Company, 3M, and H.B Fuller, who together form 33% of the market. The key players mentioned in this report are 3M, Bostik SA, Delo Industrial Adhesives, H.B Fuller, Henkel AG & Company, Huntsman Corporation, Illinois Tool Works Incorporation, Lord Corporation, Loxeal Engineering Adhesives, Parson Adhesives, Premabond LLC., Pidilite Industries, RPM International Inc, Sika AG, Toagosei Co.
