Surging growth in building and construction activities worldwide will be a prominent growth factor for this market, states Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Adhesives and Sealants Market Size, Share &COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Adhesive Technology (Water-Based, Solvent-Based, Hot-Melt, Reactive), By Adhesive Application (Paper & Packaging, Building & Construction, Woodworking, Consumer/DIY, Automotive & Transportation, Leather & Footwear), By Resin (Silicone, Polyurethane, Plastisol, Emulsion, Polysulfide, Butyl), By Sealant Application,and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027”. A collaborative study released by Oxford Economics and Global Construction Perspectives predicts that by 2030, global volume of construction output will skyrocket by 85% and reach USD 15.5 trillion in value. The main countries contributing to this prolific rise will be China, US, and India, according to the study. Adhesives and sealants are some of the most essential materials in the construction industry as they are the agents that bind dissimilar components, playing a key role in giving different parts of a building the desired shape. More importantly, these materials are critical in maintaining the structural strength of any building and thus, escalating demand for infrastructures, especially in developing nations, is likely to propel the growth of this market in the coming years.

Market Restraint

Sizeable Dip in Revenue Earnings of Key Players amid COVID-19 to Hit Growth

The momentum gained by the adhesives and sealants market growth in the past year is likely to hit a major roadblock as the coronavirus pandemic has led to a sharp drop in the revenues of key market players. For example, in July 2020, the US-based conglomerate 3M reported a 12% fall in revenue in the current quarter, with net sales sliding to USD 7.2 billion from USD 8.2 billion owing to the economic downturn caused by COVID-19. In Europe, BASF, the German chemicals leader, suffered heavy losses in the second quarter, driven primarily by shrinking demand from the auto sector. Revenue shortfalls will inevitably lead to lower investments, which in turn will have negative implications for the demand for adhesives and sealants. Furthermore, lockdowns and social distancing measures have forced companies to limit the number of workers working in factories and plants, thus contracting production activities in the process.

Regional Insights

Promising Economic Growth in Asia Pacific to Accelerate Market Expansion

Economic growth and development in Asia Pacific, mainly witnessed in India and China, has been reflected in commensurate growth in core sectors such as building & construction, energy & power, and manufacturing. Moreover, rising investments in industries have further boosted the demand for bonding materials in the region. Together, these factors are ensuring that Asia Pacific, where the market size stood at USD 21.03 billion in 2019, dominates the adhesives and sealants market share during the forecast period. 

In North America, the market is anticipated to grow at an unvarying pace owing to increasing demand in the region for flexible packaging. In Europe, on the other hand, presence of well-established chemicals industry and growing demand for green adhesives will brighten market prospects in the near future.
