The global ceramic adhesives market is expected to witness considerable growth over the forecast period due to their augmented usage in various applications. Moreover, factors such as high thermal, electrical, and shock resistance, fast-setting time, and compatibility with numerous substrates including ceramic, glass, quartz, graphite, composites, textiles, and metals are anticipated to augment the product demand in the forecast period. Ceramic adhesives, also known as inorganic adhesives, are environmental friendly and non-inflammable in nature, and contain no VOC compounds.
They are available in one or two components systems and are highly suitable for high temperature, high vacuum, and cryo applications. They are widely used in heaters, lamps, and furnaces. Most commonly used fillers in them include alumina, aluminum nitride, alumina-silica, graphite, magnesium oxide, silica, and zirconia. Low raw material cost and ease of use are the key driving factors in the market.
In addition, rising demand from the construction sector, increasing demand for new apartments, and growing trend of single family housing are likely to fuel the growth in future. Increasing construction activities in various sectors including transportation, schools, healthcare, water supply, offices, shopping malls, hotels, and manufacturing factories are also expected to have a positive impact on the market.
Hotels, offices, housing, and recreational construction are estimated to witness significant growth over the coming years. In addition, growing population in developed as well as developing economies is expected to propel residential construction activities. However, brittleness and high moisture sensitivity are projected to restrain the market growth over the forecast period.
On the basis of chemistry, the market can be segregated as cement-based, acrylic, silicone, epoxy, and cyanoacrylate. Cement based adhesives accounts for a prominent share in the market on account of their low cost and high bonding ability. They are used in ceramic tiles and mosaics and double and single-fired tiles for floors, walls, and ceilings. Epoxy is expected to exhibit a robust growth over the coming years owing to its superior strength than other products.
Building and construction and dental are the key applications of ceramic adhesives. Building and construction is estimated to emerge highly lucrative owing to rising concerns pertaining to utilization of environmental-friendly construction materials. In dental application, adhesives are used to treat fractured tooth, bond orthodontic brackets, correct position, dimension, and shape of tooth.
The ceramic adhesives market can be segmented based on geography as North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Central and South America. Asia Pacific is expected to lead the market over the forecast period due to implementation of government initiatives to promote eco-friendly materials. In addition, booming construction industry in China, India, and South East Asia is expected to propel the growth.
Key players in the ceramic adhesives market include The 3M Company, Bostik, Sika, Henkel, H.B. Fuller, BASF SE, Mapei S.p.a., Ardex, Terraco, Sain-Gobain Weber, and Fosroc. Other players include Construction Chemicals, Flextile, Norcros Adhesives, Dural Industries, and Dap Products. In October 2018, Bostik announced acquisition of Afinitica, a Spanish manufacturer of instant adhesives, in order to expand its product portfolio for niche applications in electronics, automotive, optical, and medical industries.
