Automotive Adhesive Market Overview
The global automotive adhesive market is expected to cross a valuation of US$ 7 billion by 2030. The COVID-19 pandemic has been projected to impact the industry, owing to restrictions on automotive production, and reduced sales on a global scale. Also, automotive manufacturers are facing challenges in terms of component supplies, which, in turn, is also affecting the expansion of the automotive adhesive market size.
With increased focus by automotive OEMs on weight reduction, reduced carbon emissions, and compliance with fuel emission regulations, automotive adhesives have become an increasingly popular solution. Also, greater focus on environmental-friendliness of product offerings has generated lucrative opportunities for product development in the automotive adhesive market space.
Automotive Adhesive Market Insights by Adhesive Type
Automotive adhesives are used regularly in sealing, holding and structural applications for automotive production and aftermarket uses. In addition, growing demand for characteristics such as corrosion resistance and weight reduction is creating increased scope of applications in different automobile formats.
Structural adhesives, in particular, are anticipated to account for significant share in the automotive adhesive market, surpassing alternatives such as tapes & films and liquid gaskets, which can be attributed to extensive use in holding and sealing vehicle panels for interior and exterior settings. Also, water-based and hot melt variants of automotive adhesives are anticipated to reflect faster growth rates from 2020 to 2030, on the back of longer durability and eco-friendly characteristics, respectively.
Automotive Adhesive Market Insights by End Use
Automotive adhesives find use in body in white, glazing, powertrain, paint shop, and upholstery applications, among others. BIW is a fairly prominent use of automotive adhesives. This can be attributed to the transition towards automotive adhesives from conventional welding, which, in turn, provides benefits of reduced structural fatigue.
On the other hand, powertrain and upholstery end uses are projected to reflect faster growth in the automotive adhesive market over the coming years. Increasing popularity and integration of electric and hybrid variants is expected to boost the use of automotive adhesives. Further, growing adoption of premium cars, demand for aesthetic improvements and passenger comfort, coupled with value addition such as interior sound reduction features are expected to prove beneficial to the automotive adhesive market.
Regional Outlook of Automotive Adhesive Market
Asia Pacific is expected to account for a leading automotive adhesive market share, led by China, owing to large-scale vehicle production for international markets in the region. Other countries, including those under ASEAN and India, are also expected to witness fast growth on account of reduced labor and materials costs, and the consequent cost benefits to potential vehicle owners. Also, countries in the Asia Pacific region are benefiting from efforts by market players towards regional and capacity expansion.
Developed regions in North America and Europe are also prominent markets for automotive adhesives, and are projected to reflect steady growth throughout the assessment period. The transition towards electric vehicles is likely to revive consumption of automotive adhesives in these matured markets.
