Renovation & remodeling projects in residential & commercial buildings require adhesives for bonding & installation purposes. These projects involve the substitution or installation of various building components such as flooring, cabinetry, countertops, and fixtures, further fueling the demand for adhesives.

The raw materials used in construction adhesive production include resins, solvents, and additives. The costs of these materials can vary significantly, leading to increased production costs and a surge in final product prices. Furthermore, construction adhesives are subject to various environmental regulations & standards including restrictions on the use of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and hazardous substances. Manufacturers may find it difficult to comply with evolving regulations, especially if they require significant adjustments to products. Additionally, the presence of alternate fastening methods, such as mechanical fasteners, welding, and brazing, can also impact the adoption of construction adhesives. Creating awareness about the benefits of adhesive bonding over traditional fastening methods is needed to ensure product acceptance.

COVID-19 Impact

Lockdown measures and border restrictions imposed during the pandemic affected the availability and transportation of raw materials used in construction adhesive production. Reduced manufacturing capacities and supply chain disruptions hampered the production and distribution of construction adhesives. Construction activities & infrastructure development projects experienced delays, cancellations, and reduced investments, adversely affecting the demand for construction adhesives. This reduced the demand for construction adhesives used in home renovations. Eventually, the number of COVID-19 cases declined, and restrictions were removed, leading to a gradual recovery in industrial operations and market demand.

Construction Adhesives Market Trends

The growing focus on sustainability and environmental-friendly practices in the construction industry is increasing the demand for construction adhesives that are low in Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), free from hazardous chemicals, and have a marginal environmental impact. Manufacturers are creating eco-friendly adhesives that adhere to strict environmental standards and certifications. The market is witnessing a increasing trend toward the use of hybrid adhesives that combine adhesive technologies such as the bonding properties of structural adhesives with the flexibility of sealants. Hybrid adhesives are versatile, making them ideal for a wide range of construction applications. Multi-purpose adhesives are also becoming common owing to their convenience, efficiency, and the ability to bond with different substrates such as metal, wood, plastics, and concrete. Thus, the growing application scope of construction adhesives is expected to accelerate market growth in the future.
