In addition, the region, witnessed accelerating growth in the packaging industry owing to rising demand for packed foods. The above all factors hence contribute prominently in the market growth in the Asia Pacific region.

Growth Factors

Significant growth in the automobile sector along with rising demand from packaging industries are some of the prominent factors that drives the market for industrial adhesives. Its increasing application in automotive industry is mainly because of its favorable properties that includes flexibility, lower costs, solvent-free, high fatigue & thermal shock tolerance, less vibration, reduced waste, and high productivity. Industrial adhesives are an excellent replacement for conventional bonding materials such as hoods, fasteners used indoors, deck lid flanges, dashboards, roof panels, and other automotive components.

In addition, advanced bonding technologies help o reduce time as well as cost of the overall manufacturing process that increases the profit margin in an industry. This advantage is mainly gasped by the automotive manufacturers in order to gain maximum rate of profit in less time. Further, the new bonding technology also reduces the overall weight of a vehicle that ultimately enhances its fuel efficiency. This is a major trend accepted worldwide by several automotive manufacturers particularly in the electric vehicles and autonomous vehicles manufacturing process. Increasing government regulation for reducing carbon emission further complement the growing adoption of industrial adhesives in automotive sector.
