Global methyl methacrylate adhesives market was valued at approximately $ 10.6 billion in 2018 and is projected to cross $ 13.5 billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of 4.3%. Growing demand from the transportation and automotive industry in the emerging countries as well as rising inclination towards low carbon-emitting vehicles is leading to growing consumption of methyl methacrylate adhesives (MMA) adhesives. However, volatility in the prices of raw materials is hindering the growth of the market.
Global MMA market is categorized into derivatives, substrate and region. Among derivatives, Poly (methyl methacrylate) is the leading segment as MMA is mainly used as a raw material for poly (methyl methacrylate), which is in huge demand in the automotive, construction, and electronics industries. PMMA is mostly used as an alternative to glass in the automotive and construction industries. The use of MMA adhesives in the automotive industry is growing rapidly as they minimize the weight of vehicles and provide superior performance characteristics. These adhesives are used in the automotive components as well as in the exteriors and interiors of automobiles. Further, MMA finds wide variety of applications in surface coatings & adhesives, PVC modifiers, emulsion polymers, etc.
Additionally, on basis of substrates, the market is categorized into metal, plastic, and composites. Of all, metal is the largest segment which is anticipated to dominate the market in the coming years as well. However, composite sub-segment is expected to be the fastest-growing substrate in global methyl methacrylate adhesives market on account of rising demand for MMA adhesives for bonding composite components which include bumpers, deflectors, roofs, blades, composite tanks, car seats, interior body panel structures and instrument panels of tanks, buses, etc.
Regionally, Asia-Pacific (APAC) is the leading segment in global MMA adhesives market. The region is also the major producer of MMA adhesives. Due to the economic shrinkage and saturation in both European and North American markets, the demand is shifting to Asia-Pacific. The region has emerged as one of the leading producers as well as consumers of MMA adhesives owing to the rising income levels, increasing domestic demand as well as easy access to resources.
