Thermoset Polyurethane Adhesives To hold dominance in the Polyurethane Adhesives Market

Thermoset Polyurethane Adhesives are developed to meet the requirements of customers from a variety of industries. In particular, the needs of the automotive, marine and construction markets have led to the development of new formulations with unique properties. Temperature resistance is one example. Wheels on cars are now being fitted with larger brake disks that have higher operating temperatures, made possible by an adhesive with improved thermal stability. A similar requirement has been identified in machinery for shipyards, where large blades need to be fixed together at elevated temperatures so as not to move relative to one another during transport or storage.

Growing Demand for Polyurethane Adhesives in Automotive Industry to Drive growth of the Polyurethanes Adhesives Market

The increasing demand for vehicles and the rise in vehicle production is one of the major factors fueling growth for this market. Two-wheeler and passenger car production has been growing at a steady rate, especially in emerging markets such as China, India, Russia and Brazil. Government initiatives to promote eco-friendly vehicles by replacing conventional fossil fuel engines with electric powertrains could be another factor that will favor market growth during the forecast period. Most of these initiatives are supported by funding from governments or financial institutions concerned with environmental impact mitigation. Additionally, the global automotive adhesives market is driven by various regional environmental concerns. The European Union has imposed a ban on the use of asbestos from 2019, thus increasing demand for replacement materials. This will have positive repercussions on the global automotive adhesives market as well.

In addition to this, stringent regulations and standards for new vehicle production are expected to favor the growth of the automotive adhesives market during the forecast period. In 2017, new light-duty passenger cars that meet or exceed fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emission levels required by Euro 6 were introduced in Europe.

Asia Pacific to Continue Leading the Polyurethane Adhesives Market

Asia Pacific is anticipated to lead the global polyurethane adhesive market over the forecast period, both in terms of value and volume. Changing lifestyles owing to rapidly evolving technologies are leading to greater adoption of smart homes. With increasing consumer spending on comfort living, appliances within these homes are becoming increasingly energy efficient along with being durable. This augurs well for manufacturers developing appliances using Polyurethane Adhesives, in terms of sales and profitability. This factor would also encourage customers to look forward to high performance features in Polyurethane Adhesives.

The regional market is driven by favorable government initiatives such as tax exemptions and subsidies on exports coupled with growing construction activities across developing nations like China and India. Polyurethanes' characteristics such as chemical resistance, flame retardant properties and low smoke emission levels are driving the demand for these products across Asia Pacific markets.
