Adhesives and sealants are multifaceted products that are mostly utilized in industrial sectors from malleable packaging & textile to structural applications due to its superior bonding strength. A sealant is semi solid in nature which is predominantly used to mitigate leakage failure and adhesives are chemical mixtures majorly used for bonding two surfaces.

Adhesives offers persuading characteristics including high tensile and sheer strength which makes them favorable for holding and bonding. Whereas, sealants offer elongation, compressibility, modulus of elasticity and fatigue & tear resistance which makes them favorable to reduce substrates movement and fill gaps. The numerous advantages of these products are likely to boost adhesives and sealants market demand.   

Shifting consumer preferences towards biobased adhesives & sealants due to rising environmental concerns along with reduction in fossil fuel usage for product manufacturing may impel the industry share. These products are predominantly manufactured from bio-based materials including starch, proteins, vegetable oils, natural resins and lignin.

Bio based adhesives & sealants offer similar properties to that of conventional ones by providing additional feature known as “Biodegradability”, thus promoting adhesives and sealants market growth.

Stringent government norms implementation for this industry have resulted in superior product quality manufacturing which is providing positive environmental impact. Regulations including EN 16785-1 & EN 13432 by the EU commission that evaluate biobased content and biodegradability of biobased adhesives and sealants are also contributing toward maintaining environmental safety.

Through these regulations, manufacturers will be able to produce quality products that strictly abide to norms & reduce compliance cost leading to increased company profitability, thereby fostering the adhesives and sealants market share.

Companies are investing in technological advancements and launching new biobased products to wider customer base. For instance, Jowat SE announced launch of its latest product range named Jowatherm GROW biobased hot melt adhesives. This product is made from renewable raw materials that provide superior efficiency and cleanliness.
