Global Polyurethane Adhesives Market Highlights over 2022 – 2030

The global polyurethane adhesives market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of ~6% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2030. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing application of synthetic adhesive amongst various end-user industries, such as, construction, automotive, furniture, and others. Polyurethane adhesives contain replicas of organic urethane chains, making it strong and resistant to degradation. The multi-purpose applications of polyurethane adhesives, waterproof properties, and strong bond, are estimated to boost the market growth. Moreover, these adhesives absorb heat energy, which causes a chemical reaction, resulting in the formation of bond between two surfaces. The increasing demand for automotive parts, and use of polyurethane adhesives in the automotive industry, is anticipated to boost the market growth. In 2020, more than 75 million automobiles were manufactured, and around 65 million vehicles were sold worldwide. The growing application of synthetic adhesives for making furniture is further expected to boost the market growth.

Polyurethane Adhesives Market

The market is bifurcated by type into thermoset and thermoplastics, out of which, the thermoplastics segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the global polyurethane adhesives market over the forecast period owing to the ability to melt the adhesive in order to form a bond, which increases the range of application of the adhesive. Moreover, thermoplastic polyurethane adhesives or TPU acts as a bridge between rubber and plastics, as it is smooth, flexible, and durable. Such beneficial features of TPU are estimated to boost the segment growth. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth


The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favourable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labour as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
