Fuel efficiency to be an important factor driving the demand for adhesives.

Increasing Demand from Industrial Segments Behind Growth of Adhesives Market

The main factor that is driving the global adhesive market is the growing requirement of adhesives from a number of industrial segments. Currently, while manufacturing aircrafts and vehicles, adhesives are widely taken into use. And the main reason behind this is the property of adhesives to minimise fuel usage along with minimising the weight of vehicles. Also, since orthodox methods like welding are no longer used widely, even this is predicted to boost the requirements of adhesives. The reason behind the curb in welding activities is because welding of engine parts makes it heavy, and because of this manufacturers are know interested in using adhesives. This research states that the requirement of adhesives will be on the higher side continuously since minimising fuel consumption as well as low weight of the vehicles is very important.

Strict Government Regulations to Minimize Air Pollution Creating a Favourable Environment for Market

While buying a new vehicle, most customers consider fuel efficiency to be the deciding factor before making a purchase, and less weight of the vehicle helps in improving fuel consumption. Also, the government of the United States has taken stern measures that requires the automakers to better the fuel consumption by up to 23.17 km per litre and failing to do so will result in a fine. The strict government rules and regulations to minimise air pollution is further predicted to increase the sales of vehicles that consume less fuel, which is ultimately predicted to boost the global adhesives market.
