Moreover, the FDA has also granted clearance to low VOC adhesives for packaging, which is a key factor positively impacting the growth of the global low VOC adhesives market.
Volatile Raw Material Prices to Deter Market Growth
Growing demand for ecofriendly compounds is increasing the cost of raw materials. As government regulations are favoring ecofriendly compounds, cost of manufacturing is witnessing a rise. Thus, the market is expected to experience the impact of changing prices of raw materials, which is anticipated to act as a restraint for the global low VOC adhesives over the coming years.
Regional Outlook on Low VOC Adhesives Market
The Asia Pacific region is projected to be the most lucrative low VOC adhesives market over the forecast period. This is due to rising demand from countries such as India, China, and Japan. The North America low-VOC adhesives market is expected to witness sustainable growth along with Europe over the forecast period 2020-2030. Growth in the North American region can be attributed to augmentation and modernization of paper & packaging and transportation industries in the region.
Low VOC Adhesives Market Insights by Composition
The low VOC adhesives market has been segregated into epoxy, polyurethane, polyvinyl acetate (PVA), ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), polyacrylic ester (PAE), vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE), and others, on the basis of composition.
Among these, polyvinyl acetate (PVA) is projected to be the leading segment over the forecast period. PVA is widely used in adhesives as a synthetic resin. Apart from being ecofriendly, PVA also has superior properties such as waterborne nature, low content of VOCs, and excellent adhesion to different substrates. It also finds a wide range of application in bookbinding, paper bags, cartons, labels, foils, films, paperboard decals, wood assembly, automobile upholstery, and leather binding.
Low VOC Adhesives Market Insights by End User
The low VOC adhesives market is segmented based on end user as building & construction, automotive & transportation, consumer goods, woodworking, packaging, and others.
The paper & packaging industry is expected to dominate the end-user industry segment over the forecast period. This is because low VOC adhesives offer excellent adhesion to many substrates such as cases & cartons, corrugated boxes, and food & beverage and flexible packaging.
Low VOC Adhesives Market Insights by Technology
The global low VOC adhesives market is segmented based on technology as water-based, hot-melt, and reactive. Among these, the water-based adhesives segment is anticipated to dominate the market over the forecast period. This is due to their flexibility, low content of VOCs, and better efficiency as compared to other adhesives. Moreover, water-based adhesives are made from natural or synthetic polymers that are soluble and are absorbed by the substrate.
Also, these are easy to handle, which makes them the most favoured one among other types.
Low VOC Adhesives Market: Competitive Landscape
The global low VOC adhesives market is partially consolidated in nature. The market has a presence of a few major players dominating a significant portion of the market, along with regional manufacturers. Players are focusing on many organic and inorganic strategies to gain an edge over the competition. Companies are investing in research & development in order to come up with innovative applications.
For instance, 3M group’s product called 3M Hi-Strength 94 ET Spray Adhesive bonds on laminates, woods, metals and particleboard, soft foams, lighter weight materials, and substrates with more porous surfaces. The spray pattern for this adhesive is designed to prevent telegraphing through thin veneers and glossy laminates. In addition, it has a very high solid content, which correlates to more coverage per pound of adhesive.
