Glass Bonding Adhesives Market Revenue Analysis 2015-2021 vs. Future Outlook 2022-2032

According to a recent Fact.MR analysis, the worldwide glass bonding adhesives market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 7.8% from 2022 to 2032. UV curable type glass bonding adhesives are likely to take the lead, boosting market growth. With an exponential expansion of the building and construction industry, demand for glass bonding adhesives is quickly expanding, owing mostly to rapid urbanization and highly developed industrial units in North America, which are fueling the rise of the building and construction industry.

According to the United Nations, the worldwide urban population is anticipated to grow by 70% by 2050. A booming commercial construction industry in the Asia Pacific area is catering to the market's expansion. Furthermore, government investments in this region are acting as an economic stimulus. For example, the government of Indonesia devotes more than 6% of its entire budget to the growth of the building and construction sector each year.

The building and construction sector is developing further in countries such as Latin America, Europe, and others, with an increasing number of production units and well-developed infrastructure. According to the European Commission (EC), the building industry accounts for around 9% of Europe's GDP. Glass bonding adhesives are highly chosen by a wide range of end users because to their unique features of creating strong, long-lasting joining procedures between numerous dissimilar materials such as glass, metal, plastic, and others.

As the need for glass bonding adhesives continues to rise, prominent market players have begun to produce wide categories of goods of various sorts, including polyurethane, silicone, epoxy, and others. Epoxy, for example, has introduced its new A:B 1:1 Resin Glue Epoxy Adhesive, which may be used as an adhesive on glass, metal, wood, plastic, and other surfaces.

Prominent Glass Bonding Adhesives Industry Growth Drivers

Building and Construction Industry Expansion is Boosting Growth

Glass bonding adhesives offer unique properties such as non-yellowing, moisture resistance, rigidity, chemical inertness, and others that are highly demanded in connecting procedures of various components made of diverse materials such as steel, glass, wood, fabrics, plastic, and others.

Glass bonding adhesives are made from solvent-free ingredients, making them increasingly popular in the building and construction sector. The building and construction sector is rapidly developing as a result of increased population and industrialization, which is assisting the expansion of the glass bonding adhesives market. While population growth in Asia Pacific was 1.07% in 2019, it is anticipated to be 1.2% by 2050.

According to the European Commission (EC), Germany generates the most income for the automobile sector in Europe - US$ 254 billion by Volkswagen, US$ 150.8 billion by Daimler, and others. According to Fact.MR, the rise in industrial output in North America from 2015 to 2019 is 3.62% which is another driver for the glass bonding adhesives market in this area.

An Expanding Automotive Industry is assisting in the Surge in Demand

Glass bonding adhesives are extremely effective in creating electrically/thermally conductive or insulating junctions, making them ideal for use in the automobile sector. With an increase in demand for passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, battery vehicles, and electric automobiles, the automotive industry's need for glass bonding adhesives is increasing.

India's automotive sector grew at a rate of 4.9% between 2015 and 2020. China boasts the world's largest automobile sector, with a five-year production high of 97,302,534 vehicles. According to the EC, EU automotive investments climbed by 6.1 percent in 2018 to reach 60.9 billion euros. In 2018, the automobile industry generated more than 2.5% of the gross domestic product in the United States, a figure that is gradually rising as the industry advances.

Glass bonding adhesives offer a quick and cost-effective connecting method that eliminates galvanic corrosion. Glass bonding adhesives also offer great vibration dampening qualities. They can also transfer mechanical stress equally over a joint. Because these features are significantly required in joining different parts in the automobile sector such as distributors, spark plugs, interior harnesses, fuses, and others, demand from the automotive industry is driving the growth of the glass bonding adhesives market.
