Dublin, Oct 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The report “Hot Melt Adhesives Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunities, and Forecast 2021-2026” has been added to offer.

The global hot melt adhesives market reached a value of US $ 6.75 billion in 2020. Going forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% during 2021-2026. Bearing in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, the analyst continuously monitors and assesses the direct and indirect influence of the pandemic on different end-use industries. This information is included in the report as a major contributor to the market.

Hot melt adhesives are normally solid formulations based on thermoplastic polymers. They are generally solid at normal temperature, but activate and turn into liquids when heated above their softening point. Upon solidification, they revert to a physical state which has structural integrity and can act as an adhesive. These adhesives are made by mixing thermoplastics with waxes, plasticizers, fillers, resins and antioxidants. Hot melt adhesives can be applied in many ways including extrusion, screen printing, spiral spraying, melt blowing, slot coating, etc. Compared to other adhesives, hot melt adhesives bond instantly to plastics, ceramics, glass, paper, rubber, wood, metal, etc. As a result, they are widely adopted in the packaging, construction, electronics, textile and automotive industries.

The growing packaging industry is primarily driving the demand for hot melt adhesives to seal, assemble and label corrugated boxes and cartons. In addition, hot melt adhesives are also used for the assembly of car seat covers and carpets, thus experiencing high demand in the automotive industry. In addition, the growing demand for fully assembled and laminated furniture is also increasing the market for these products. The increasing development of infrastructure in various emerging economies, such as India, China, Vietnam, etc. further propels the use of hot melt adhesives to bond ceramics, wood panels, flooring and remodeled plastics. Apart from this, the growing adoption of customized and flexible packaging in the food and beverage industry is also driving the demand for hot melt adhesives as they do not contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which can lead to odor. foul-smelling and can also affect the quality of food. In addition, the advent of PUR technology has led to the introduction of advanced product variants offering high heat resistance, UV protection and superior bond strength, creating a positive impact on the growth of the market. .
