Market Overview

The bio-based adhesives and sealants market is expected to register a CAGR of above 4.5%, during the forecast period of 2019-2024. Major factors driving the market studied are increasing demand from the packaging sector and stringent regulations for conventional adhesives in the United States. On the flip side, low shelf life, lower water-resistance, and performance-related concerns related to bio-based adhesives and sealants are expected to hinder the growth of the market studied.

  • The soy segment dominated the market in 2018. It is expected to grow further, during the forecast period, owing to its increasing demand as an alternative for urea formaldehyde and phenol-based adhesives.
  • Growing residential construction in Asia-Pacific and an increasing number of modular construction activities are likely to provide opportunities for the studied market, during the forecast period.
  • Europe dominated the global market, with the largest consumption from countries, such as Germany, France, and Italy.

Key Market Trends

Paper, Board, and Packaging Segment to Dominate the Demand

  • An extremely high proportion of all industrial products are sold in packaging, either due to stability requirements for storage and transport or for aesthetic reasons.
  • Most of the packaging materials that are currently being used are made from the combination of different materials, laminated together with the help of adhesives.
  • Applications of bio-based adhesives range from corrugated box construction and lamination of printed sheets to packaging materials used for all types of consumer products.
  • The improvement in living standards and higher purchasing incomes, especially in eastern European countries and North American countries, have increased the demand for a broad range of products, all of which require packaging. Therefore, the demand for packaging has, in turn, increased the consumption of bio-based adhesives.
  • The paper, board, and packaging segment has been the biggest market for bio-based adhesives in the global scenario. The packaging segment is the fastest growing end-user segment.
  • Europe is the second-largest market for packaging in the world, after Asia-Pacific.
