Polyurethane Adhesives Market

Polyurethane Adhesives Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2016 - 2026

Market Overview

Polyurethane Adhesives Market – Overview

Polyurethane is a polymer composed of units of organic chains, formed by the reaction of isocyanate and a polyol. Polyurethane is sticky in nature and used as an adhesive due to its property of sealant and high -quality bedding materials. The polyurethane adhesive is considered as strongest adhesive and sealant due to its moisture curing and multiple component system with different elongation under loads and thermal coefficient of expansion. The polyurethane adhesives can be customized as per the requirement of the industry. The increasing demand of the polyurethane adhesive for market specific applications such as sealing, roofing, tiling, aerospace laminating, flexible packaging and automotive production lead to the significant growth of the global polyurethane adhesive market over the forecast period. 

Polyurethane Adhesives Market – Drivers and Restraints

The global polyurethane adhesive market is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period. The demand of polyurethane adhesive is increasing due to its use in building and construction as the adhesives bond many types of substrates such as glass, plastic, wood, concrete etc. Moreover, the customization and availability of polyurethane adhesive in the multiple component system along with the optical clarity, durability, elongation, high/low temperature serviceability, electric insulation and rapid fixturing leads to its  use in various industries such as automotive, footwear, packaging, electrical and furniture, resulting in the growth of the global polyurethane adhesive market.

However, the price of the polyurethane adhesive as compared to other adhesives is the major concern which may restrain the growth of the global polyurethane adhesive market.
