Surging Production and Sales of Chemical Goods

The surging sells and production of chemical goods is expected to increase the demand for water-based adhesive and drive the market growth rate during the forecast period. Huntsman Corporation was purchased by Indian adhesives manufacturer Pidilite Industries for $ 28.55 billion in November 2020. With this acquisition, Araldite will strengthen Pidilite Industries' existing robust portfolio of adhesives and sealants and add to its line of retail products. American company Huntsman Corporation produces and sells chemical goods to both industrial and retail clients.


Increasing adoption of internet of Things (IoT) technology

In order to get real-time data and locate gaps in the manufacturing process, many adhesive firms are implementing Internet of Things (IoT) technology to connect machinery and smart devices. Plant managers and senior management process, analyse, and interpret the data to improve quality and reach ideal production levels.

For instance, smart systems provide data on the operation and performance of chemical reactors with embedded analytics capabilities to alert plant managers and operators of potential machine failures. Examples of significant businesses implementing IoT include The Dow Chemical Company, BASF SE and H.B. Fuller. Therefore, increasing adoption of internet of Things (IoT) technology is expected to create numerous opportunities for the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Restraints/ Challenge

Slower drying nature of water-based adhesives

The main problems with water-based adhesives are their slower drying tendency at low temperatures. The drying process requires a lot of time and could cause a delay in the work process because water is so volatile. For instance, Henkel and other businesses produce Technomelt adhesives, which are hot melt adhesives utilized in the furniture and automobile industries because they dry quickly. As a result of this, the development of water-based adhesives is being constrained by their shorter drying period.
