Pressure sensitive adhesives refer to chemical/polymer formulations that bond surfaces together or bond with a surface when pressure is applied. A variety of pressure sensitive adhesives, such as medical tapes, supplies and wound care products, automotive and industrial tapes, and labels for consumer goods, are commonly used in a variety of settings on a regular basis. Common use of these products can be seen across sectors such as automotive, electronics, packaging, footwear, construction, furniture, and several other consumer goods. Typically, pressure sensitive adhesives are obtained from substances such as natural rubber, acrylic, silicon, EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate), and butyl.

The report states that the market will be driven mainly by the rising demand for economical adhesives in the fields of labeling and packaging. However, the constant fluctuations in prices of oil-based feedstock and certain regulations limiting the use of products with a high proportion of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) will limit the overall growth of the market to a certain extent.

The report presents qualitative and quantitative data related to all key market elements. The market has been segmented on the basis of three criteria: product type, application, and geography.

On the basis of product type, the market has been segmented into water-based, hot melt, solvent-based, and radiation-cured pressure sensitive adhesives. Of these, the water-based pressure sensitive adhesives segment accounted for the dominant share in the market, followed by the segment of solvent-based pressure sensitive adhesives, in 2012.

On the basis of application, the market has been segmented into tapes, specialty products, graphics, labels, dental adhesives, automotive trims, and notepads. Of these, the segment of tapes dominated the market in 2012, accounting for a share of 40% in the global market. The segment of labels is expected to expand at a 5.1% CAGR over the report’s forecast period. The high demand for labels will result from the rising adoption of RFID labels in the field of consumer goods.
