Hot-melt Adhesives Market Drivers

Increasing Demand for Hot-Melt Adhesives (HMAs) in Various DIY Applications

HMAs can bind to a wide range of materials and surfaces that make them ideal for DIY applications, such as ceramic, cloth, paper, cardboard, metal, and plastics. While in developed economies such as North America and Europe, DIY is common, it is a relatively new notion. The DIY apps include art, woodworking, packaging of general products, and others. Because of its ease of use and the availability of HMA weapons, the stick type of HMA is commonly used in these applications. In contrast to emerging markets, the DIY approach is very popular in the United States and European countries, where labor and installation costs are high. In terms of floor space and labor requirements, hot-melt systems are cost-effective. This is most likely due to the expense of running large drying and curing ovens and emissions control equipment being removed. Solvent recovery and incineration devices are often removed from hot melt systems, which are inevitable for solvent-based systems. Moreover, this decreases the expense of installation and maintenance of these systems and thus increases their demand for DIY applications.

Rising Demand for Hot-melt Adhesives in Construction Industry

In the construction industry, hot-melt adhesives offer several advantages over other solvent-based adhesives. Hot-melt adhesives eliminate or reduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and eliminate the drying or curing step, thus due to which it is increasing being used in the construction industry. Rising demand for hot-melt adhesives in flooring and carpets, doors, garage doors, windows, tile insulation, and other applications, has further raised the demand for hot melt adhesives in the construction industry.
