Elastic Adhesives Market Segment Analysis – By Adhesive Type
Polyurethane segment held the largest share of more than 40% in the Elastic Adhesives Market in 2020. Polyurethane-based adhesives are made of urethane polymers with chemical-based isocyanate groups. Due to the extraordinary elasticity and elongation before the rupture up to 600% they are mostly used for manufacturing elastic adhesives. Moreover, the Polyurethane-based Adhesives are cured by polyaddition reactions, by taking on moderately reticulated structure with qualities of an elastomer material. Whereas, rigid polyurethane adhesives are also cured by polyaddition but they also acquire a high crosslink structure of thermoset material. Polyurethane-based adhesives are mainly used in bonding windscreens, side & rear windows of passenger cars, trucks, and tractors, and also offer better adhesion and painting properties. Due to these properties, there is an increasing demand of polyurethane in Elastic Adhesives Market during the forecast period.
Elastic Adhesives Market Segment Analysis – By Type
Double Sided segment held the largest share of more than 45% in the Elastic Adhesives Market in 2020. In double-sided, the elastic adhesives are coated on both sides of a substrate in order to provide high initial bond strength, for elevated surfaces, or bonding of heavy materials. The surging uses of these double-sided adhesives in the construction industry to bond the tiles with the wall or surface further drive the growth of this market. Moreover, the growing demand for smartphones and tablets also contributes to the growth of this segment owing to the superior bonding properties. Therefore, increasing construction or electronic industry is also driving the demand for silane Modified Polymers, polyurethane segment, and flexible linear macromolecular elastic adhesives due to their superior properties. For Instance, as per Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) report in 2020, the Indian consumer electronics market is valued to be $10.93 billion in 2019 and Electronics manufacturing is expected to be $163.14 billion in 2025.

Elastic Adhesives Market Segment Analysis – By End Use Industry
Building & Construction segment is projected to witness a significant growth of 4.5% in the Elastic Adhesives Market during the forecast period. The main benefits of elastic adhesive over mechanical fixings are their speed and economy of use, without sacrificing durability and no need for drilling, resulting in no damage or weakening of the substrate. Moreover, elastic adhesives are used in flooring, sub-floor preparation, and tilling in the building & construction industry. The growing need for buildings to sustain the huge population and growing middle-class income is driving the Elastic Adhesives Market growth. As per the Oxford Economic report in 2018, the global construction industry is expected to be valued at $8 trillion by 2030. Therefore, an increase in the construction industry will fuel the demand for the Elastic Adhesives Market.
Elastic Adhesives Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
Asia-Pacific segment is projected to witness the highest CARG of 7.5% in the Elastic Adhesives Market during the forecast period. China, Japan, South Korea, and India are the major countries driving the growth of this market in APAC. Furthermore, the growing consumer electronics and e-commerce sector are also driving the market growth in this region. For instance, as per the Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) report in 2020, the Indian appliance and consumer electronics (ACE) market was RS 76,400 crore (around US$ 10.93 billion) in 2019 and is expected to reach Rs 1.48 lakh crore (around US$ 21.18 billion) by 2025, which will provide a significant boost to the Elastic Adhesives Market in APAC region during the forecasted period. Elastic Adhesives based on Silane Modified Polymers and polyurethane segments have very good processing characteristics, high-temperature stability, flexible linear macromolecular substance, and low water absorption as compared to epoxies and bismaleimides. Elastic adhesives can be used as composites for encapsulants for microelectronics and printed circuit boards. Additionally, it also offers excellent strength and better electrical properties.
Elastic Adhesives Market Drivers
Surging Uses of Window Panel as a better Infrastructure Design
Glazing is a process where the glass is installed in windows, doors, or any other fixed openings in the building. The window panel in many skyscrapers is not screwed but is bonded together with adhesives, which offers excellent bonding, and increases the longevity of the panel. Bonding window panels with elastic adhesives offer excellent vibration suppression, provides a clean-looking finish quality, and speeds up the assembly time. Elastic adhesives based on Silane Modified Polymers and polyurethane segment also provide design flexibility to the contractors, as the window frames or panels used in assembling the glass are factory-made and come in standard shape and sizes.
