Adhesives & Sealants Market Overview and Introduction
The global adhesives & sealants market was valued at over US$ 50.0 Bn in 2018 and is anticipated to grow at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period of 2019-2030.
Adhesive is a substance capable of holding two surfaces together, they have high shear and tensile strength. Sealant acts as a barrier by attaching two surfaces together, by filling the space between them. They are generally lower in strength when compare to adhesive, but have better flexibility. They are often considered the same industry; however, their properties are mainly dependent upon how they are applied.
Growing demand for light weight vehicles with high fuel efficiency is the major factor driving the adhesives & sealants Industry growth. Rising demand from construction sector is another factor propelling the market growth. However, due to stringent government guidelines and volatility in the prices of crude oil are two major barriers towards the market growth.
