Key Market Trends

Building and Construction Industry to Drive the Market Demand

  • Contact adhesives’ properties such as good cohesion, adhesion and elasticity, high cohesive strength, flexibility, high elastic modulus of substrate, resistance from thermal expansion, environmental resistance from UV light, corrosion, salt water, rain, and other weathering conditions, makes it extensively useful for application in construction industry.
  • They are mainly used in wooden flooring and artificial turf, owing to their property of strain crystallization.
  • In North America, countries, such as United States, Canada, and Mexico have numerous construction projects in either planning or development phase. For instance, United States have numerous airports, stadiums, and entertainment city projects under planning or construction phases.
  • Similarly in Canada, Quebec government has planned to investment on renovation and refurbishment projects over the next one decade. 
  • Hence, all such trends in construction industry which is likely to propel the consumption of contact adhesives in the region.
