About This Report


Since the first synthetic glue was developed in the early 20th century, the Glue and Adhesives Manufacturing industry has grown rapidly. The past few decades has seen industries' reliance on glues and adhesives increase. There is now an enormous range of specialised adhesive formulas. In the past few years, manufacturers have moved away from traditional joining processes like welding or riveting towards structural adhesive bonding, which has helped the industry. Its adhesive solutions are being used more often in relatively new fields such as medicine and advanced technologies.

This industry comprises companies that manufacture glue and prepared adhesives. In total, there are about 30,000 different adhesives, which are used in a vast array of different areas, from automotive engineering to footwear. Adhesives are an increasingly essential raw material input for a host of downstream industries.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
