Technology Insights

Reactive & other technology segment dominated the market with a revenue share of more than 45% in 2022. This growth is attributed to the market for adhesives technology which is anticipated to be driven by rising environmental awareness and strict restrictions in several nations.

Products based on reactive technology are advantageous in many ways, which is why they are a major driver of the segment's expansion. Benefits associated with these products include rapid manufacturing because of increased heat resistance, rapid setting time, and good adhesion to a variety of substrates.In the few years, the usage of polyester hot melt adhesives has become more commonplace in the textile and apparel sector. Over the past few years, the product's application has expanded in the cotton, wool, and textiles sector. It does this by significantly increasing both the fabric's elastic recovery rate and its anti-pilling performance for cotton-woven materials.

Hot melt adhesive products are becoming more and more common in automotive dashboards all over the world. These materials are used in dashboards where they provide improved sound insulation while also reducing vibrations. During the forecast period, the product's penetration in the automobile industry is projected to be pushed by the rising focus on providing soundproof rides.
