Liquid Adhesives Industry Estimated to Cross US$ 44.6 Billion by 2025

The liquid adhesives market is projected to grow from USD 35.8 billion in 2020 to USD 44.6 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 4.5%, between 2020 and 2025. Liquid adhesives are the adhesives that are in fluid form or state and have low viscosity. The wetting properties of these adhesives enable us to hold the substrate so that molecular contact between the substrate and adhesive is activated. The demand for liquid adhesives is increasing in the paper, packaging & related products, building & construction, medical, assembly, etc. Liquid adhesives form an integral part of many fabricated products. They can be successfully used as a cost-effective means to replace mechanical fastening methods such as welding, brazing, or riveting. Liquid adhesives are used in motor vehicles, aircraft, appliances, electrical & electronic components, houses, bonded wood, furniture, carpets, shoes, medical, and many other applications. These adhesives for bonding non-porous substrates such as plastic, metal, rubber, and glass can create growth opportunities for its market in the coming years.
