Global Wood adhesives and Binders Market: Snapshot

Owing to the vast number of uses that wood adhesives and binders provide with regard to adhesives, the wood adhesives and binders market is anticipated to have major growth rates in the years to come. Because of the rising trend of using wooden furniture that adds class to the standard of living, wood adhesives and bindings are likely to grow rapidly. Where wood adhesives bond or adhere to surfaces made of wood, binders draws or holds the materials together forming a cohesive whole.

A number of industrial applications like doors, flooring, cabinets, windows and furniture, widely use binders for various purposes. The excellent and long lasting bond that both binders and wood adhesives offers along with temperature resistance and chemical durability may be among the key factors to increase the demand for wood adhesives and binders market in the forecast period.

Wood adhesives are available in both synthetic and natural varieties. Manufacturers are putting more focus on the production of new product varieties with low content of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The production of VOCs have increased considerably in order to promote environment protection by the use of less harmful chemicals. The regulatory authorities have also laid down stringent rules against the use of harmful chemicals. This in turn has increased the overall demand for wood adhesives and binders in the global market.

The global wood adhesive and binders market is presumed to be worth US$17.77 bn by 2020 with an impressive CAGR.

Furniture Construction Contributing More Revenue Generation Owing to Population Rise
