Middle East & South Africa Adhesives & Sealants Market Outlook, 2027
UAE is emerging as the innovative construction engineering of the world. It is on the spur of constructing cutting edge technology buildings one after the other. The world renowned Burj Khalifa is one such wonder of the technology. It is constructing world’s smartest buildings to reduce operating costs and improve working environment. These buildings are sensor driven that aim to provide efficiency, comfort and productivity. The solutions are focused on energy efficiency, such as smart power systems, systems to track energy wastage, and track building occupancy to reduce power consumptions in facilities which are unoccupied. Coupled with cloud technologies Building Information Modelling (BIM) is enabling companies to streamline their process and become more efficient. The other tools like robotics, drones, 4D & 5D simulation, pre fab construction, and GPS enabled devices are also used in construction of these smart buildings. All this drives the demand for adhesives & sealants in construction industry and also, interdependent industries, where assembling of the devices is done through he application of these adhesives & sealants.
