Chapter 1: Introduction
An adhesive is any substance applied to the surfaces of materials that binds them together and resists separation. Its principal attribute is its ability to form strong bonds with the surfaces of a wide range of materials and to retain bond strength under expected use conditions. The use of adhesives offers many advantages over binding techniques such as sewing, mechanical fastening and thermal bonding. These include the ability to bind different materials together, the ability to distribute stress more efficiently across a joint, cost effectiveness of an easily mechanized process, an improvement in aesthetic design and increased design flexibility. Most adhesives do not have excellent bulk properties, so it is important that adhesive films are kept thin. Materials such as epoxies have bulk properties that qualify them as engineering materials, and they thus can be used in multifunctional applications. Adhesive is a general term that includes among cement, glue, mucilage and paste. All of these terms are loosely used interchangeably.

The principal advantages of adhesives include the ability to:

• 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. These 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 and regional markets for adhesives with the purpose of locating newer markets and expanding the present market position for various adhesive types. A realistic forecast has been made for the future market for various adhesives. The various technologies involved in the manufacturing of different adhesive types are studied, including the value of such products produced and utilized globally and in different regions during the last three years, as well as the forecast for the next five years. The application for each adhesive type is discussed in detail, with a view to establish the global and regional usage of different types in various applications. A future forecast has been made for such applications.

A broad look is taken into the increasing utilization of adhesives in place of various fasteners types and different methods of joining in an ever-increasing number of applications, along with the impact of such newer methods on the economy as a whole. The environmental impact of utilization of various
adhesives is also studied. The report studies the raw material requirements for global and regional adhesive production and the effect of raw material supply over the production, pricing and distribution of these products. Various new raw materials being used with increasing newer applications have also been studied. Various manufacturers of different raw materials needed for adhesive production and the market shares of such manufacturers and suppliers are also discussed.

The report also studies the product lifestyle and technology lifestyle (TLC) of various adhesives and the methods employed by manufacturers and users in maintaining ecological balance. Recently developed adhesives such as nanoglues, which are becoming more popular in various applications, are also studied.
Finally, the report profiles major adhesive manufacturers and suppliers. Mergers and acquisitions in this field have also been studied
