Industry Outlook and Trend Analysis

The Structural Adhesives Market was worth USD 9.16 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach approximately USD 17.02 billion by 2023, while registering itself at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.13% during the forecast period. A structural adhesive is one that can be utilized to create a load-bearing joint. Nonetheless, the term is regularly associated with those adhesives that are used for engineering applications where joints will commonly have lap shear strengths of more prominent than 1MPa and ordinarily, more than 10MPa. Adhesives that don't commonly provide such structural function are called sealants. Frequently however, the difference between a sealant and a structural adhesive is obscured as it relies upon the loading of the joint and the end use.
