The global bio-based adhesive & sealant market size is projected to expand in a steadfast manner as chemical companies come up with exciting innovations based on eco-friendly materials, shares Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Bio-Based Adhesive & Sealant Market, 2022-2029”. The demand for biodegradable materials has been growing considerably over the past few years owing to the rising awareness about the toxic environmental effects of synthetic chemical formulations. To meet this trend, chemical industry bigwigs have been investing heavily in R&D to innovate bio-based adhesive & sealant products.

For example, in August 2019, Follmann and its subsidiary, Sealock, launched a sustainable adhesive created from renewable raw materials, such as sugarcane and corn. Similarly, the German chemical company, Jowat, introduced GROW, its bio-based hot-melt adhesives that feature a rich content of renewable materials ideal for packaging applications. Another example is TerraCycle, an adhesive recycling program initiated by Henkel in 2019 to bring sustainability in adhesive manufacturing. The introduction of such environment-friendly solutions is, therefore, bolstering the growth prospects of this market.

COVID-19 Impact

The eruption of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020 brought the world to a standstill, causing unprecedented disruptions in global supply chains, production activities, and business processes. One of the most severely hit industries is construction, where, according to the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), productivity fell by 12% and a quarter of the construction projects around the globe had been halted in the second quarter of 2020. The adoption of adhesives and sealants, which are critical for the construction, has thus suffered a major setback. However, the strong demand for packaging and agriculture has stabilized the market to a limited extent.

Driving Factor

Phenomenal Growth Projections for the Construction Industry to Fuel the Market

The bio-based adhesive & sealant market growth is set to get boosted by the incredible growth projections for the construction industry released by expert bodies. A recent report by Oxford Economics and Global Construction Perspectives, for instance, forecasts that the value of construction output worldwide will increase by 85% and reach USD 15.5 trillion by 2030. The principal drivers for this growth will be the soaring demand for housing and construction in India, China, and the US, which will account for 57% of this increase. Bio-based adhesive & sealant products are being increasingly preferred by builders and buyers owing to their cost- and energy-efficiency, along with several environmental benefits. Moreover, with health consciousness gaining a new level of significance amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for biodegradable construction materials has heightened and is likely to remain dominant over the next few decades.
