According to The Business Research Company’s research report on the automotive adhesives market, the rise in demand for eco-friendly automotive adhesives to meet the highest possible standards of environmental regulations and safety is a key trend in the automotive adhesives market.

Companies are mainly focusing on replacing solvents with environmentally compatible solutions.

Unlike mechanical fasteners, green adhesives are rust-free and they also decrease the likelihood of water and snow penetration, making a stronger and long-lasting bond for vehicles. For example, in September 2019, Ingevity, a US-based provider of adhesives, launched its environmentally friendly, Altatac™ ECO 100 resin at the FEICA European Adhesive and Sealant Conference.

Altatac ECO 100 is a high-performance tackifier designed for enhanced stability in thermoplastic hot melt adhesives. It helps formulators and brand owners improve their environmental footprint, differentiate product offerings, and address consumer demand for more sustainable offerings. Similarly, Sika AG, a Swiss multinational specialty chemical company, launched SikaPower® adhesives which include all types of steel, aluminum and carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP), and combinations of these substrates, in mixed material bonding for reducing CO2 emissions from vehicles.

The global automotive adhesives market size is expected to grow from $4.82 billion in 2021 to $5.11 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.06%.

Automotive adhesives market growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges.

The market is expected to reach $6.51 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 6.24%.

Favorable government initiatives towards the automotive industry are contributing to the growth of the automotive adhesives market in the forecast period. For example, in September 2021, the Indian government issued a notification regarding a Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme for automobiles and auto components worth INR 25,938 crore (US $3.49 billion). This scheme is expected to bring investments of over INR 42,500 (US $5.74 billion) by 2026.

India’s Automotive Mission Plan FAME-II, started in 2019, emphasizes providing government support to the country’s growing automotive and components manufacturing industry. Such government initiatives will contribute to the growth of the market in the forecast period.
