Market Overview

Europe acrylic adhesives market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 3% during the forecast period. The demand for acrylic adhesives is widely driven by the recovery of construction activities in the region and high demand from packaging industry due to high dependency on processed and packaged food products. However, stringent VOC emission regulations related to acrylic adhesives disposal and/or substitution from different feedstock may hinder the growth of the studied market.

  • The water-based acrylic adhesives segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment, owing to the increasing consumer awareness about the ill-effects of solvent-based adhesives on environment and human health.
  • Replacement of solvent-borne adhesives in construction industry and shifting focus towards the bio-based adhesives are likely to offer opportunities for the acrylic adhesives market in the region.
  • Germany stands to be the largest market for acrylic adhesives in the region, with consumption being majorly driven by the growth in construction, electronics, and packaging industries.
