  • Based on the resin type wood adhesives are segmented into natural and synthetic types. Natural glues are obtained either from plant or animal bodies which have low binding capacity compared to synthetic adhesives.
  • The growing construction activity is increasing the application of wood creating scope for wood adhesives.
  • In Japan, more than 58.9% of houses are built in wood making it the world’s largest country in the construction of wooden houses increasing the application of wood adhesives.
  • In glue-laminated beams (Glulam), the beams are structurally engineered and bonded together with moisture resistant adhesives. These are used as straight beams, columns which include lintels, purlins, ridge beams, and floor beams, tied rafters, trusses in construction of buildings where the application of wood adhesives in very high.
