Rapid Adoption of High-performance Products Drives Global Automotive Adhesives and Sealant Market Toward $12 million by 2024

London, UK – 1 August, 2018 – Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis of the Global Automotive Adhesives and Sealants Market reveals that increased adoption of high-performance products such as crash safety adhesives, liquid applied sound deadeners (LASD), advanced high-temperature-resistant silicones, and water-borne acrylics are expected to drive new growth opportunities and revenues. Frost & Sullivan anticipates the global automotive adhesives and sealants market to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% until 2024 and reach $12,209.9 million.

“Rapid adoption of aluminium, magnesium, plastics and composites in the body in white (BIW) and assembly segments—prompted by the growing need to bond dissimilar substrates, increased safety concerns, and OEMs’ focus on enhancing aesthetic appearance—boosts the demand for adhesives and sealants,” said Dr Leonidas Dokos, Business Unit Leader, Chemicals and Materials, EIA at Frost & Sullivan.

Market consolidation is expected as larger companies are constantly exploring opportunities to acquire regional or application-specific participants to expand their product portfolios. To gain a competitive advantage, Dr. Dokos recommends sealant and adhesive players emulate Henkel and Sika and offer end-to-end solution capabilities across all chemistries and applications. They should also focus on adopting robust research and development capabilities and establish strong relationships with automotive OEMs to understand the OEM’s new product development activities and futuristic needs.

Five key trends creating growth opportunities in the market include:

  1. Increased adoption of water-based, eco-friendly acrylic emulsions in the paint shop and BIW segments, along with adhesive technologies that help in bonding different substrates without primer treatment in seam and gap fillers, underbody and various bonding applications;
  2. Surge in electric vehicles driving higher adoption of adhesives and sealants owing to greater part consolidations in the under-the-hatch and powertrain segments and the use of lightweight materials in the BIW segment to compensate for the weight gain caused by the addition of battery packs;
  3. Global automotive OEM adoption of common vehicle platforms across regions;
  4. Increased demand for SUVs in China, hatchbacks and sedans in India, and promising automotive production in the Middle East and Africa in the Rest of World (ROW) region; and
  5. Regulatory norms for GHG emissions and fuel economy standards, resulting in adoption of lightweight materials.

“Performance of adhesives and sealants is a key concern in applications that operate in high-temperature environments. Similarly, the adhesion capacity is less with oily substrates, which restrains adoption in applications where the components are exposed to fuel, lubricants, and greases,” noted Dr. Dokos. “It is therefore increasingly important for manufacturers to develop advanced adhesives and sealants that offer superior performance over currently used silicone materials in engine and transmission components, and with oily substrates.”

Ben vowed from that day on to get his hands on as many tech products as possible. Ben’s approach to a review is to make it informative for the technofile while still making it understandable to everyone. Ben is a new voice in the tech industry and is looking to make a mark wherever he goes. When not reviewing products, Ben is also a 911 Telecommunicator just outside of Pittsburgh PA.
