The global Curing adhesives market growth is projected to be valued at USD 10,795.8 million by the end of 2028, registering a CAGR of 7.76% during the forecast period.

Curing is a chemical process in which the adhesive completely crystallizes. The adhesive attains its final properties, which helps it build final strength. They provide high strength, flexible to rigid bond lines that resist temperature, humidity, and many chemicals.

Covid Impact Analysis

The global pandemic of the novel coronavirus has led to a tight supply of the products primarily due to the reduced operating capacities and closed production plants globally. The restrictions on logistics, travel, and one-on-one meetings across the borders, along with lockdown and curfews within the states or country to limit the spread of the coronavirus, have negatively impacted curing adhesives market growth production due to the disruption in the supply chain across the globe. Moreover, the producers are facing issues due to the disruptions in raw material supply and fluctuations inits prices. Moreover, the companies are working aggressively towards safeguarding their employees' well-being and health and supporting government goals of up holding critical business activities such as food production, power generation, and healthcare. ss

Although the manufacturers have seen a decline in their revenue, some companies have reached new growth rates. For instance, in April 2021, Sika AG acquired Hamatite, the adhesives business of The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd. in Japan, which offers adhesives and sealants to the automotive and construction industries. The acquisition will significantly strengthen Sika’s market position in Japan, increase market access to all major Japanese OEMs. The companies are also developing and providing the market with new products. For instance, in February 2021, WACKER has launched the ELASTOSIL eco brand in Europe. Likewise, in April 2021, H.B. Fuller has introduced two compostable adhesive solutions for the flexible packaging market.

Furthermore, with the ease of lockdowns in various regions, manufacturers are now coping up and are managing to fulfill customers’ requirements at a similar level as the pre-COVID era.

Segment Analysis

The global curing adhesives market growth has been segmented on the basis of type, application, end use, and region.

Based on resin, the global curing adhesives market growth has been segmented into epoxy, polyurethane, acrylate, silicone, and others. The acrylate resin segment was valued at over USD 2,000 million in 2020 owing to its widespread use in p production of pressure sensitive tapes. Acrylate adhesives comprise acrylic or methylacrylic polymers. These adhesives are highly preferred in outdoor application settings owing to their ability to withstand various environmental factors such as ultraviolet (UV) radiation, ozone, and moisture, among others. The growing use of pressure sensitive tapes in the automotive, solar energy, furniture making, and electrical & electronics industries is expected to drive the segment growth over the forecast period.

Based on product type, the global curing adhesives market growth has been segmented into UV cure, moisture cure, and heat/ thermal cure. The moisture cure segment is expected to dominate the market and register a CAGR of around 7.5% during the review period owing to their wide-ranging use in the building & construction industry. Moisture cure adhesives react with moisture in the air or the underlying substrate to cure. They are generally used for difficult-to-bond surfaces metals, wood materials, and a wide range of plastics that do not contain polyethylene or polypropylene. The construction industry has emerged as one of the leading users of moisture cure adhesives.

Based on application, the global curing adhesives market growth has been bifurcated into electronics & electricals, and others. Curing adhesives play an important role in the electronics & electrical industry. They played a key role in reducing the overall weight and miniaturization of various electronics. Curing adhesives have successfully replaced traditional soldiering systems and fasteners in producing various electronics goods such as mobile phones, computers, and consumer durables. The electronics & electrical segment is further segmented into consumer electronics, automotive electronics, industrial electronics, and others. The consumer electronics segment was valued at over USD 800 million in 2020 due to the wide-ranging adoption of curable adhesives in producing various consumer electronics items such as smartphones, tablets, personal laptops, smartwatches, and earphones, among others. The automotive electronics segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 8.0%, owing to the growing adoption of curable adhesives to replace traditional fastening systems.
