The primary driver for the adhesives & sealants market is the greater integration of these products into the automotive and construction industries. In 2021, the market stood at $66,649.9 million and it is projected to touch $102,604.3 million by 2030. It will advance at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2021 to 2030, owing to the rising vehicle safety standards, accompanied by skyrocketing demand for these products in the packaging industry.
With the outbreak of COVID-19, several end-use sectors, including electrical & electronics, building & construction, and automotive, were impacted badly. Thus, the pandemic had a negative effect on the adhesives & sealants market, due to the disruption in the supply chain. For example, the automobile industry in China witnessed a 90% fall in the demand for new vehicles. Similarly, there was a drop of 23% in the sales of vehicles in Europe. Nonetheless, with the resumption of activities in these sectors, the business will recover prospectively in the future.
The improvements in bio-based sealants and adhesives will lead to the creation of lucrative opportunities for players in the adhesives & sealants market. This can be credited to the attempts made to substitute chemical-based products with bio-based products, due to the surging environmental concerns. Moreover, companies are adopting technologically advanced bio-based products to achieve the two-fold motifs of improving sustainability standards without settling on the current performance level. For instance, Nuplaviva, a string of products with bio-sourced content, was launched by Bostik SA in December 2021.
Increasing deployment of electric vehicles globally will spur the adhesives & sealants market growth. The registration of electric cars in 2020 touched a 3-million mark, as per the International Energy Agency. Furthermore, a 10-million mark was touched by the global electric car inventories in the same year, which increased by around 45% as compared to 2019 figures. Even though there is a lower use of sealants and adhesives in electric vehicles, the demand for these products will potentially grow with the rising pivot on emphasizing reducing overall vehicle weight.
