2K Epoxy Adhesives Market size is anticipated to reach over USD 14 billion by 2030, as per a new study published by Global Market Insights Inc.
Robust residential and non-residential construction activities across developed economies, such as the U.S. and Canada, will be a major factor driving the demand for 2K epoxy adhesives. In recent years, these countries have demonstrated a significant rise in disposable income and a dramatic shift in consumer preference for self-owned houses. For instance, the per capita disposable income in the U.S. has surpassed USD 47 thousand by 2020. This represents a strong potential for consumer spending across the construction, automotive, electronics, and healthcare sectors.
Due to weather-resistant capabilities, 2K epoxy adhesives are extensively used in the construction sector, which is currently witnessing continuous developments and constant public investments for new infrastructure. These adhesives are mainly used to bind different raw materials such as metals, wood, cement, and plastics used in construction activities. They are also suitable for outdoor construction activities, floorwork, and repairing tiles.
Increasing transportation activities to boost 2K epoxy adhesives market demand
In terms of volume, the 2k epoxy adhesives industry share from transportation applications is expected to exceed 20 kilo tons by 2030, says the study. The demand for 2K epoxy adhesives has increased in the transport sector owing to properties like improved toughness, flexibility, and ease of use. Compared to other welding joints and fixtures, these adhesives are lighter in weight and are used in roof bonding, panel bonding, frame assembly, and interior components assembly for commercial & public buses, trucks, railways, and heavy-duty trucks.
Given these characteristics, 2K epoxy adhesives manufacturers have witnessed greater demand in the transportation sector for the past few years. With an increase in public spending, the demand for railways and public buses has surged at a notable pace. For instance, the European Union has put considerable focus on strengthening its railways sector, to help achieve the regional 2050 emission reduction goals. In June 2022, the EU confirmed that it will spend more than USD 5 billion toward 135 transport infrastructure projects, which will also include some railway development projects.
