Global Automotive Adhesives and Sealants Market - Segmented by Resin Type, End-user Industry, Technology, Function and Geography – Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2017 - 2022)

The market, expected to value at USD XX million in 2017, is likely to reach USD XX million by 2022, registering a CAGR of XX%, during 2017-2022 (the forecast period). Automotive adhesives are applied to the materials’ surfaces to adhere and seal them together. They are generally available in the liquid form that is viscous in nature, with no or little flow characteristics. Adhesives are characterized based on their bonding and holding power and have high tensile and shear strength. Adhesives are of two varieties, namely, structural adhesives (high strength; vital for the success of the assembly) and non-structural adhesives (low strength; used to bond weak substrates and for temporary fastening).However, sealants are selected, based on their ability to resist relative movement of the substrates, to fill gaps and to contain or exclude other material. They have less strength as compared to adhesives but are more flexible in nature.Market DynamicsThis market is driven by factors, such as the increasing automotive production, in Europe, and increasing demand for lightweight vehicles, across the globe. However, the decreasing automotive production in Latin America acts as one of the roadblocks to the market growth.Market SegmentationThe global automotive adhesives and sealants market, based on technology, can be broadly segmented into adhesives and sealants. The adhesives segment is further sub-segmented into water-borne adhesives, solvent-borne adhesives, reactive adhesives, hot melts adhesives and others. The market is further segmented, based on the function, into structural and non-structural and by resin type into acrylic, epoxy, polyurethane, silicone and others. Moreover, based on the end user, the market is segmented into automotive OEM and automotive aftermarket which is shown below: The market, based on the geographic area, is segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and the Middle East & Africa.
