Any substance, which is applied on the surface of materials, in order to bind them together is called adhesives. Polyester adhesives are synthetic adhesives that are based on unsaturated or saturated polyesters. The components required for polyester adhesives are hardening initiators (e.g. hydroperoxides), solvents (acetone or alcohol), and extenders (silica or cement). These components are mixed together before the use. If the extenders are not used, polyesters are either somewhat colored or colorless liquid compositions with only able to work for several minutes to several hours. Polyester adhesives find applications in various industries, owing to their high adhesion strength to various materials such as plastics, wood, rubber, organic glass, and silica. These adhesive bonds are water-resistant, gasoline resistant, and also resistant to salt solutions and weak acids.
Global polyester adhesives market size is expected to expand significantly during the forecast period (2019-2027), owing to growing use of polyester adhesives in various applications. Rising use of polyesters adhesives in industries such as furniture and construction is expected to increase its demand and eventually support the market growth. The construction industry is growing exponentially around the world, which is expected to increase the demand for polyester adhesives and subsequently support growth of the market. Furthermore, global furniture demand is expected to increase significantly in the near future, which in turn is expected to boost the market growth. Polyester adhesives are predominantly used in the furniture industry, due to its efficiency and its environment-friendly nature. This is expected to support the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, growing applications of polyester adhesives in various industries including footwear, automobile, textile, product assembly is expected to boost its demand and hence support the market growth.
However, fluctuating raw materials prices is one of the major restraining factors in growth of global polyester adhesives market. Polyester adhesives are derivatives of petroleum-based feedstock, which may negatively impact the market.
