Global Adhesives & Sealants Market Report: 2015 Edition

Global Adhesives & Sealants Market Report: 2015 Edition

Adhesive is a broad term as it incorporates various materials like cement, glue, mucilage, and paste among others. Adhesives majorly comprise of polymers, which harden either in a physical manner or as a result of a chemical reaction, and are generally classified on the basis of their curing, or bonding, mechanism. On the other hand, sealant is a soft, pliable material that changes state to become solid after application, and is chiefly employed for the prevention of air, noise, dust, fire, smoke, and liquid penetration, where structural strength is not required. Sealants fall between the higher-strength adhesives and extremely low-strength putties and caulks. Adhesives and sealants are categorized on the basis of whether the bonding involves a physical or chemical mechanism. The key factors driving growth of the global adhesives and sealants industry include expanding construction industry, growing transportation sector, growing global GDP, increasing focus towards environmental friendly adhesives and growing miniaturization trends in electronics. The global adhesives and sealants market is likely to be driven by the ameliorating Asia Pacific market, skewed trends in the US transportation sector and increasing demand for more environment friendly products. In addition, the growing application of adhesives in the medical applications is expected to bring new opportunities to the market. However, the growth of global adhesives and sealants industry is hindered by the fluctuating raw material prices and shortage in the supply of raw materials. Adhesives and sealants are utilized in several industries including packaging, automotive, electronics, footwear, construction repair and remodeling, textiles, consumer goods, and shipbuilding. Among all the applications, packing, construction industry, durable assembly and transportation sector account for a major part of adhesives and sealants consumption. The present report offers a comprehensive analysis of the global adhesives and sealants market along with a detailed study of the regional markets including North America, Japan, Asia and Europe. The competition in the respective market is intense with few large players viz. Henkel, H.B. Fuller, Sika and 3M. The competitive landscape along with the company profiles of the leading players in the market is discussed in detail. By combining SPSS Inc.’s data integration and analysis capabilities with our relevant findings, we have predicted the future growth of the industry. We employed various significant variables that have an impact on this industry and created regression models with SPSS Base to determine the future direction of the industry. Before deploying the regression model, the relationship between several independent or predictor variables and the dependent variable was analyzed using standard SPSS output, including charts, tables and tests.
