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 environmentally friendly and non-inflammable 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. The 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 ceramic adhesives market.
Also, rising demand from the construction sector, increasing demand for new apartments, and the growing trend of single-family housing are likely to fuel the growth in the 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. Also, the 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 market growth over the forecast period.
Based on chemistry, the ceramic adhesives market can be segregated as cement-based, acrylic, silicone, epoxy, and cyanoacrylate. Cement-based adhesives account 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 are estimated to emerge highly lucrative owing to rising concerns about the utilization of environmental-friendly construction materials. In dental application, adhesives are used to treat the fractured tooth, bond orthodontic brackets, correct position, dimension, and shape of the 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. The Asia Pacific is expected to lead the market over the forecast period due to the implementation of government initiatives to promote eco-friendly materials. Also, the booming construction industry in China, India, and Southeast 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 the acquisition of Afinitica, a Spanish manufacturer of instant adhesives, to expand its product portfolio for niche applications in electronics, automotive, optical, and medical industries.

The mining industry accounts for a vital share of the global economy and is responsible for supplying key raw materials for several applications and end-use industries, thus being a key sector of focus amidst the ongoing pandemic outbreak. Mining industries in China are expected to return to normal operations by Q3 of 2020 as enterprises indicated towards the returning of their workers soon. Moreover, Iron ore producers are known to be the least impacted. Major players such as BHP and Vale reported experiencing no major influence on their operations due to the COVID-19 virus. The iron ore prices reached above USD 90 per ton amidst the pandemic situation which may negatively impact the end-use industries. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
