The Global Hot Melt Adhesives (HMA) Market is expected to witness significant growth over forecast year. The hot melt glue is thermoplastic adhesive. This adhesive can flow & melt when they are given heat and become stiff on cooling for offering the strapping adhesion to the given surface. They are usually called as hot glue. Usually, available in solid cylindrical fixtures having numerous diameters. They are deliberated to be melted by an electric hot adhesive gun. The main driving factor for hot melt adhesives & glue market around the globe is little price and likely to be utilized as an alternative for the other type of adhesives. The hot adhesives gun has a loading section where the HMA (hot melt adhesive) is heated to its melting point. The molten plastic glues are then distributed by a heated plunger by using the mechanical activator mechanism of the hot glue gun. The HMA (hot melt adhesive) hardens within minutes or seconds depending upon its concentration. The HMA (hot melt adhesives) in contrast to solvent based adhesives, do not drop their density or thickness after solidifying and offers strong adhesion.
The market is fuelled by growing requirement from end-user companies such as labeling, packaging, building & construction, woodworking, bookbinding, automotive, non-woven, transportation & footwear markets. In addition, the general trend of shifting away from solvent based glues owing to damaging consequences of unstable organic compounds given out from these adhesives or glues is expected to propel market growth over the forecast period. Continuous pressure given by regulatory working authorities such as EPA (Environment Protection Agency) & REACH is expected to reduce the utilization of solvent based adhesives in an effort to decrease unfavourable effects on the environment, thereby affecting the hot melt adhesives market. Furthermore, the strong bond without the demand to cure the glue after it is being utilized is a supplemented advantage for budding and cheaper end-use procedures.
The increasing market demand and persistent push for environment pleasant adhesives resulted in an expansion of strategic industry initiatives by an active player. Active players are penetrating novel markets through agreements, partnerships, joint ventures & collaborations globally to make use of untapped industry opportunities and take the advantage of the benefits sourced through by combining synergies. Volatile raw material costs are the main restraining factor that is expected to obstruct market expansion. HMA (Hot melt adhesives) are made from petroleum based feedstock, cost of which fluctuates by the commodity industry. This put thrust on the margins of active market players, in the particular, medium sized and small sized players who are by now providing aggressive prices for increasing market share. Growing requirement from high-speed manufacturing enterprises is propelling the global hot melt adhesive market over the forecast period. In addition to this, the varying trend of the packaging industry is expected to augment the worldwide requirement for hot melt adhesive products.
Hot melt adhesives industries have been segregated by application, type and geography exclusively. On the basis of types hot melt adhesives are commercially available, the hot melt adhesives market is sectioned into polyurethanes, polyolefin, ethylene vinyl acetate, polyamides and others. Each type fluctuates greatly and the concentration is different with altered technical specifications. On the basis of the main user segments, the hot melt adhesives market can be segregated into the construction industry, automobile industry, food & beverage industry, electronic industry, packaging industry, industrial assembly, woodworking industry, textile industry and others.
On the basis of the geographical region, the hot melt adhesives market can be segregated into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is expected to capture the largest revenue over the forecast period owing to the expansion of manufacture capacity coupled with highly competitive production cost. Another reason fuelling the growth of Asia Pacific hot melt adhesives market over the forecast period is increasing investments in construction projects & infrastructure development in countries like China & India. North America is expected to capture second largest revenue over the forecast period, which is expected to follow by North America.
The growth of the worldwide hot melt adhesives market is being fuelled by numerous altering trends, comprising the relentlessly growing demand for soaring-performance solutions for a varied range of functions. Adhesives formulators & brand owners are faced with the multifaceted challenge of end-user demands for food safety & security while guaranteeing the layer appeal, cost competence and sustainability of their offerings. And changing consumer demographics, particularly as the population ages, are some of the factors that are increasing the demand for hot melt adhesives in end-user industries over the forecast period.
