The market has been classified into UV-cured, hot melt, solvent-based, and water-based technologies. Water-based technology will have the highest market share in the pressure sensitive adhesives market in 2018. It can be attributed to their exceptional characteristics such as cohesive strengths, wide-ranging peel, exceptional clarity in dry films, excellent levelling & flow, and low temperature adhesion.

Water-based PSAs are used in removable protective films, for paper labels & film and over laminate films. Major European countries have stopped using solvent-based adhesives and are substituting with water-based adhesives, which will augment the growth of pressure sensitive adhesives market in the coming years.

Acrylic product type will dominate the market

Different product types include rubber-based, acrylic-based, silicone-based, and other minor segments including ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), polyurethanes (PU), etc. Acrylic segment will hold the largest share in pressure sensitive adhesives market and is likely to grow at a CAGR of over 4.5% throughout the forecast timeframe.

These PSAs possess outstanding UV-light & chemical resistance, high shear strength & hydrolysis resistance, colour stability, high resistance against varying temperatures and excellent aging properties.

Acrylics are optimal for durable and long-term applications. They have higher temperature stability as compared to rubber-based PSAs. The prevailing trend of using lightweight and low-cost engineered plastic in electronics, automotive, construction, aerospace, and other industries will augment the demand for acrylic PSAs in the coming years.

Tapes will be the popular application segment

Different PSA applications include tapes, labels, films & laminates, graphics, and other segments such as automotive trims, dental adhesives, etc. Tapes is the most popular application segment in pressure sensitive adhesives market. Pressure sensitive tapes offer various advantages such as reduced product weight, improved product durability, enhanced product aesthetics lower production costs, and increased productivity.

These tapes have extensive application in healthcare, food & beverage, automotive, logistics, & transportation industries. Development in these industries will augment the product demand for tapes application segment in the coming years.
