Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand from the Packaging Industry

  • The demand for adhesives in the packaging industry is increasing with the growing number of end-user applications. The packaging applications that use adhesives and sealants include flexible packaging, specialty packaging, composite containers, and frozen food packaging.
  • In 2018, the per capita packaging consumption of India was significantly low at 8.7 kg, compared to countries, such as Taiwan and Germany, where it was 19 kg and 42 kg respectively. Thereby, presenting the packaging industry with significant opportunity to grow, in-turn, boosting the adhesives and sealants market growth rate in the packaging sector.
  • India is the second-largest producer of food in the world and one of the major consumers of packaged foods and beverages. As per the Packaging Industry Association of India (PIAI), the Indian packaging industry is currently the fifth-largest sector of India’s economy and has a growth rate of 22-25% per year.
  • Due to the various packaging requirements, such as light weighing products, different sizes, shelf life, and ease of recycling, the demand for packaging, especially flexible packaging, has been increasing in India. Flexible packaging has been the most suitable option for addressing these concerns and is being widely adopted for several products across different industries.

Acrylics to Dominate the Water-borne Adhesives Segment

  • Water-borne acrylic adhesives are considered as an environmentally friendly and economically feasible substitute to solvent-based adhesives. The major advantage of water-borne adhesives is the absence of volatile organic compounds.
  • The properties of the acrylics include durability, color retention, quick-drying, environmentally friendly, impact-resistant, etc. Acrylics are majorly used on exterior and interior surfaces, such as on frames, doors, wall surfaces, trim, etc.
  • Acrylics can be applied to areas, such as primed metals, direct to metal applications, wood, and masonry surfaces. Acrylics are also used directly to metal or as a topcoat for many colors and gloss levels.
  • The application of the acrylics includes bonding wood, paper, wall panel bonding, sealing (grouts), textiles bonding, paper stamps, leather tile envelopes, labels, etc. Acrylics are used by various end-user industries, such as buildings and construction, woodworking and joinery, paper, board, packaging, etc.
  • Furthermore, acrylics are majorly used by paper, board, and packaging industries. Packaging industry dominates the demand for acrylic adhesives with numerous applications in products, such as tapes, labels, cases, and cartons.
  • Factors, such as e-commerce, online food deliveries, and innovation and development in the packaging industry has been driving the growth of the packaging industry in the region.
