Market Dynamics Overview

“Surging Aerospace Industry to Bolster Film Adhesives Market Growth”

The growing aerospace industry is set to drive the film adhesive market during the forecast period. For instance, Airbus and Boeing delivered 565 and 411 aircraft till November 2022, compared to 518 and 302, respectively, in the first 11 months of 2021. Airbus and Boeing delivered 68 and 48 commercial jets in November 2022, in comparison to 58 and 34 aircraft deliveries, respectively, in the same month last year.

The aerospace industry highly depends upon film adhesives to ensure wear and tear resistance of the aircraft. Film adhesives are used for the exterior, interior, and engine compartments of aircraft. It is used to permanently bond various things. Film adhesives are also used as a processing aid to instantly bond parts, that are glued with slower-curing adhesives. It is also used to quickly fix damaged interior trim.

“Factors Affecting Film Adhesives Market Growth”

Factors such as fluctuating crude oil prices and the energy crisis hamper film adhesives production. For instance, the energy crisis arising due to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war is likely to push certain economies to halt the operations of manufacturing units, as numerous European countries are highly dependent on Russia or Ukraine for their energy needs.

This lead to a halt in the production of film adhesives, especially during winter to meet basic energy requirements. Also, the disrupted supply chains are crucial factors restraining the film adhesion market growth.

Predominating economies such as Italy, Saudi Arabia, China, and Russia in terms of oil and gas production are witnessing certain crises which led to a hike in oil and gas prices at the global level.

For instance, Italy and Russia are witnessing numerous sanctions and trade crises imposed by the U.S. coupled with Saudi Arabia's initiatives to reduce per-day oil production, and China is still emerging from the COVID-19 crisis, such factors are responsible for skyrocketing fuel prices, affecting film adhesives market growth as crude oil is used in the manufacturing of adhesives.
