Bio-based Adhesives & Sealants Market Size Forecast to Reach $11.6 Billion by 2026

(, January 08, 2022 ) Bio-based adhesives & sealants market size is forecast to reach US$11.6 billion by 2026, after growing at a CAGR of 13.2% during 2021-2026. Adhesives and sealants (AS) are materials that have excellent properties, flexibility, and easy curing mechanisms, and are commonly used in a range of industries, from building to medicine. Due to the fast-growing demand for petroleum-based goods (fossil based materials) and the consequent negative environmental effect (the carbon footprint), there is an increasing need to establish novel and more sustainable sources to procure raw materials. This is particularly driving the demand for biopolymer based adhesives & sealants in various end-use industries. Furthermore, the rising crude oil prices and stringent government regulations are also projected to be a major driver for the bio-based adhesives & sealants industry during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact

As the coronavirus epidemic spreads and its humanitarian effect increases, businesses that help meet basic needs, such as getting food and other critical goods to customers safely, are being increasingly impacted. The packaging industry is on the front lines, with food packaging being the main area of operation. The coronavirus epidemic would have a mixed effect on the packaging industry. Packaging for groceries, healthcare goods, and e-commerce transportation would see a major increase in demand. Demand for industrial, luxury, and some B2B-transport packaging can fall at the same time. The coronavirus epidemic has already resulted in some of the sharpest drops in demand for certain forms of packaging in recent memory while accelerating growth for others—such as packaging for e-commerce shipments, which are rapidly becoming lifelines in this new world. The market for biopolymer based adhesives and sealant is also fluctuating as a result of the fluctuating packaging demand. As a result, such changes are posing a range of challenges for bio-based adhesives and sealants manufacturers.

The packaging segment held the largest share of more than 30% in the bio-based adhesives & sealants market in 2020 and is growing at a CAGR of 15.8% during 2021-2026. The majority of today's packaging products are made up of a variety of materials that have been laminated together using adhesives. In the packaging industry, bio-based adhesives are increasingly being used in PET container packaging, flexible packaging, corrugated boards, carton side seams, and film-foil laminates. Flexible packaging is the second-largest packaging application category in the overall packaging industry, owing to numerous benefits such as requiring 91 percent less content and 96 percent less space than rigid packaging. Flexible packaging is widely used in the food industry because of its moisture absorption properties, product freshness, and temperature regulation while preserving the product's shelf life. Demand for lightweight and innovative packaging solutions from the food industry is majorly driving the consumption of bio-based adhesives and sealants during the forecast period.

Bio-based Adhesives & Sealants Market Segment Analysis - By Geography

Europe region held the largest share in the bio-acetic acid market in 2020 more than 30% and is growing at a CAGR of 16.4% during 2021-2026, owing to spiraling demand for bio-based packaging in European countries from the food and beverage industry to lower carbon footprint. The usage of bio-based adhesives & sealants is increasing in packaging materials to improve the productivity of the economy and reduce its reliance on fossil fuels. Online grocery shopping is rapidly growing. Italy’s food retail sales reached US$145 billion in 2019, 1 percent more than in 2018. According to the International Trade Administration (ITA), globally, Russia has the eighth largest market for packaged food products with 27.5 million tons of trade volume, as well as beverages (alcoholic and soft) with a trading volume of 26 billion liters. In 2018, food production in Russia increased by 4.7%, while drink production increased by 3%. In 2018, Spanish food retail sales reached US$112.4 billion. Additionally, Spain continues to host record numbers of tourists, which also boosts food demand. With the increasing demand for food and beverages, the demand for packaging materials is also substantially rising. Therefore, owing to this the demand for bio-based adhesives & sealants is anticipated to increase, which will then drive the market growth in the European region during the forecast period.

Bio-based Adhesives & Sealants Market Drivers

Demand for Lightweight and Innovative Packaging Solutions

Bio-based adhesives are primarily driven by the food industry's demand for lightweight and advanced packaging solutions. Corrugated boxes are one of the most common types of packaging. Food and beverage, automobile, FMCG, pharmacy, household goods, and tobacco are only a few of the sectors that prefer these boxes. Corrugated boxes are in high demand due to the growth of e-commerce and the use of recycled paper. Furthermore, increasing industrial activity, especially in the manufacturing and retail industries, is a major driver of corrugated box demand, as these boxes are used to secure and transport goods. In addition, a lot of research is being done to sort out newer bio-based adhesives for use as tapes in packaging applications. Engineers at the University of Delaware, for example, created a method for producing packaging tapes from lignin in June 2018.

Flourishing Construction Industry Accelerating the Demand for Paints & Coatings

In the building industry, bio-based adhesives and sealants are used to prevent fluids and other substances from moving through material surfaces, joints, or openings. Bio-based adhesives & sealants are typically used to close openings between spaces that are too small for other materials such as concrete, timber or mortar to be used. They are also used to prevent the passage of air, sound, dust, insects, and so on, as well as acting as a fire-stopping component. Governments are heavily investing in expanding the construction sector. For instance, in Birmingham, £165 million (approximately US$194.8 million) has been announced to unlock up to 5,100 homes and to provide the infrastructure to support these new homes. Furthermore, the government has launched a new National Productivity Investment Fund (NPIF) with an allocation of GBP 23 billion (EUR 26.8 billion) (approximately US$31.6 billion), in which GBP 7.2 billion (EUR 8.4 billion) (approximately US$9.9 billion) is to support the construction of new homes. The residential construction in countries, such as Germany, India, and United States has been increasing, and the trend is likely to continue due to the increasing demand for residential dwellings. With this, the demand for bio-based adhesives & sealants is also expected to increase, which will then drive the market growth.
