Economic Growth Leading to Rising Consumption of Hot melt Adhesives

by Vijay K. Web Marketing
With the increasing disposable income around the world, industrialization activities are picking up. This is eventually leading to the growth of the packaging industry, as anything that leaves a factory needs to be packaged, to protect it from the elements till it reaches the end customer. An important raw material required for packaging, both rigid and flexible, is the adhesive. Presently hot melt adhesives, which are available as solid, cylindrical sticks, to be applied by being heated up inside a gun, are becoming popular.

Hence, as per P&S Intelligence, the booming packaging industry will take the hot melt adhesives market value from $7,717.0 million in 2019 to $12,761.3 million by 2030, at a 6.1% CAGR between 2020 and 2030. Within the packaging sector, the usage of such materials for food and beverage packaging is burgeoning. With the increasing purchasing power of people, especially in developing countries, the consumption of packaged food and beverage products, such as potato chips, cold drinks, bakery and confectionery products, ready-to-eat food, biscuits and cookies, and other snacks, is increasing.

Due to this, efforts are being taken to shift to electric vehicles and improve the fuel economy of conventional ones. One of the best ways of doing the latter is to reduce the weight of the vehicle, which is why the traditional iron and steel are being replaced by aluminum, carbon fiber, and other lightweight materials. Similarly, hot melt adhesives are being increasingly used to bond the auto parts and components together instead of the conventional fasteners, including bolts and nuts, which make the automobile heavy.

All these types of adhesives are consumed in the highest volumes in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region because it is home to a huge manufacturing industry. India, South Korea, China, and Japan are some of the largest producers of automobiles, consumer electronics, and textiles in the world. Moreover, with the government support to the manufacturing sector, the demand for various raw materials, including hot melt adhesives, is expected to continue to increase in the region in the years to come.

Moreover, the APAC region will also be the fastest-growing region in the hot melt adhesives market during the forecast period. Owing to the booming population in the region, the demand for packaged food, clothing, automobiles, and consumer electronics is rising. Further, raw materials and labor are available at cost-effective prices in regional countries, which is why manufacturers from North America and Europe are setting up their factories here. As a result, the region is also the largest producer of chemicals, including hot melt adhesives, thereby resulting in their ready availability at low rates.

Hence, with the growth of the automotive, packaging, and other sectors, the demand for hot melt adhesives is rising.
