Dynamics of Packaging Adhesives Market
The shifting of consumer preference toward more sustainable adhesives is the latest trend observed in the market. The increasing adoption for biodegradable and recyclable packaging products has led to high demand for adhesives. Adhesives had specific recycling issues in the past, which include a high production time. With the evolvement of new innovations and product development, water-based adhesives have been developed with lesser weight and biodegradability.
Adhesives are widely required in the food & beverage packaging sector. With the rising consumer awareness on health, there has been a significant increase in the demand to maintain the freshness or shelf life of packaged food products. In 2017, All4Pack Paris estimated the demand for food packaging at $273.9 billion and is projected to reach $356.7 billion by 2023. In addition, the increasing urban population, improved awareness on health and nutrition, along with increase in travel activities, and busier lifestyles have resulted in the increasing demand for packaged healthy food, which, in turn, drives the growth of the market.
With the adoption of low-tack adhesives (LTAs) for reclosable applications the market holds a high growth potential for the forecast period. LTA, with high-adhesion ability in reclosable applications, offers better usability for consumers and provides a cost-competitive option to product manufacturers for packaging applications. In addition, products with LTAs do not require precise alignment to reclose a package, unlike zipper seals.
