DUBLIN, Aug. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Structural Adhesives Market by Technology (Solvent-Based, Water-Based), Resin (Epoxy, Polyurethane, Acrylic, MMA, Cyanoacrylate), Application (Building & Construction, Automotive, Wind Energy, Aerospace), and Region - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The structural adhesives market was valued to be USD 14.0 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 19.4 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period.

Structural adhesives provide excellent mechanical performance while enabling weight reduction. They offer high strength, load-bearing capability, durability, and resistance against impact, heat, fatigue, and solvents. They also offer advantages such as cleaner lines with no protruding nails, rivets, or weld marks in the body of automotive, including cars, buses, and trucks. All structural adhesives provide at least 1,000 psi of overlap shear strength to the substrate. These adhesives can be used to bond a wide variety of substrates such as steel, aluminum, copper, plastics, rubber, glass, wood, and masonry.

The growth of the structural adhesives market is primarily driven by the increasing use of modified epoxies and polyurethane adhesives, along with increasing penetration of methyl methacrylate adhesives, in the wind energy, marine, building & construction, and automotive applications. Increasing penetration of composites, increasing demand for non-hazardous, green, and sustainable structural adhesives, and demand for lightweight and low carbon-emitting vehicles and aircraft are expected to increase the demand for structural adhesives in the next five years.

The key players in the structural adhesives market include Henkel (Germany), Sika (Switzerland), 3M (US), Huntsman (US), and ITW (US). H.B. Fuller opened its new Automotive Competency Center in Mannheim, Germany.

This center expanded H.B. Fuller's capability to develop and manufacture hot melt, water-based, solvent-based, reactive and film adhesive technologies for use in various automotive trim, structural parts, lighting, electronics, and battery applications. Sika launched Sikaflex-268 PowerCure, an accelerated one-component polyurethane adhesive, and sealant, for vehicle glass and assembly applications in the transportation sector.
