INTRODUCTION

Adhesives are substances capable of holding materials together in a useful manner by surface attachment. The principal attribute of adhesives is their ability to form strong bonds with the surfaces of a wide range of materials and to retain bond strength under expected use conditions. Most adhesives do not have excellent bulk properties; therefore, it is important to keep adhesive films thin. Some materials, such as epoxies, have bulk properties that qualify them as engineering materials and thus can be used in multifunctional applications. Adhesive is a general term and includes among others cement, glue, mucilage and paste. All of these terms are loosely used interchangeably.
The principal advantages of adhesives are as follows:
• Bond similar to dissimilar materials of different thicknesses.
• Enable the fabrication of complex shapes not feasible by other fastening means.
• Smooth external joint surfaces.
• Permit economic and rapid assembly.
• Distribute stresses uniformly cover-joined interfaces.
• Provide weight reduction in critical structures via the elimination of fasteners.
• Dampen vibrations.
• Prevent or reduce galvanic corrosion.
• Provide thermal and electrical insulation.

The limitations of adhesives depend on the specific adhesive and application and may include the necessity of surface preparation, long curing times, service temperature limitations, loss of properties during service, toxicity of flammability during assembly or use, and the tendency of many adhesives to creep under sustained load.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

This report studies the global as well as regional markets for adhesives, with the purpose of locating newer markets and expanding the present market position for various types of adhesives. A realistic forecast has been made for the future market for various types of adhesives.
