Analysis of the North American and European Construction Adhesives and Sealants Market : Emphasis on Light Weighting in Building Components to Drive Growth

This study analyses the European and North American construction adhesives and sealants market. The products covered are construction adhesive materials (epoxy, acrylate, Polyurethane (PU), synthetic rubber based, Polyvinyl Acetate (PVA), and others) and sealant materials (silicone, PU, polysulphide, butyl, and acrylic). Major industry drivers, restraints, regulatory trends, and end-industry trends affecting the market for adhesives and sealants in the construction industry are also discussed. Unit shipment and revenue forecasts have been provided by chemistry and application for each segment. At the segment level, the analysis focuses on the dynamics in North America and Europe. The base year is 2015 and the forecast period ends in 2022.

Key Findings

The construction adhesives and sealants market is at the forefront in terms of product development and technological advancements. Adhesive manufacturers are more focused on improving the initial and final strength of the different adhesive systems, whereas sealant manufacturers have centered their product development on addressing issues related to mechanical strength, chemical resistance, and weatherability within a comprehensive solution.

In the non-structural construction application market, there has been a significant volume shift from solvent-based technology to water-based owing to the sustainable benefits of the latter, along with easier application and a simplified cleaning process.

Despite historic dominance of two-component sealants due to their superior properties, the market is currently focused on one-component systems. This is mainly due to the ease of use and flexibility in initial formulation.

Acrylics have emerged as the most dominant chemistry in both adhesives and sealants for structural as well as non-structural applications due to their optimum price performance value compared to other competing chemistries.

North America is expected to grow at a much faster pace than Europe. This is mainly due to the rapidly growing single- and multi-family housing, along with a significant number of renovation projects, in order to comply with stringent energy-efficiency legislations
