Industry Insights

The global MS polymer hybrid adhesives and sealants market size was valued at USD 7.46 billion in 2018 and is estimated to witness a CAGR of 8.1% from 2019 to 2025. The market is majorly driven by the increasing popularity of hybrid adhesives & sealants in the construction and automotive industries. Modified-silane (MS) polymers are large, chained molecules terminating with a silyl group. The polymers are formed from high molecular weight polypropylene oxide. Due to their adhesion towards a wide range of substrates along with good resistance to extreme temperature and ultraviolet rays, they are used in various applications.

MS polymer hybrid sealants are increasingly being utilized for wall coverings, waterproofing, window & door frames, flooring, and insulation in the construction industry. Therefore, the expansion of the construction industry is a key contributor to the consumption of these products. Bonding ability with different substrates, compatibility with paints & coatings, and low VOC content further boosts their demand.

Germany MS polymer hybrid adhesives & sealants market

The increasing production of automotive vehicles coupled with the growing demand for lightweight and Electric Vehicles (EVs) is expected to augment the demand for MS polymer hybrid adhesives. These products find application in floor, component, body, chassis, external, and internal sealing. Moreover, the products are also used for general assembly, windscreen, side window, sunroof, windscreen, side panel, and trailer bonding.

However, volatility in raw material prices may hinder market growth. Polyurethane and silicone are key raw materials, which have been witnessing inflation over the last few years. For example, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of the U.S., the producer price index of plastic materials and resin manufacturing increased by 62.1% from 2008 to 2018.

Application Insights

Building & construction segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2018. The segment is driven by growing demand for the products in sealing and waterproofing applications. These products are also used for renovation purposes, which further aids in their demand. Transportation is another significant application as adhesives and sealants are used in railways, marine, automotive, and aviation industries.

With the growing production of EVs, the demand for advanced adhesives is increasing. The products are also used in boat, yacht, and shipbuilding applications as they offer elasticity, strength, durability, and UV resistance and are capable of bonding various materials, such as aluminum, glass fiber reinforced polyester, stainless steel, and woods that are used in the construction of boats, ships, and yachts.

The market growth is also driven by other applications, such as industry assembly and heavy equipment. The products offer an instant cure in presence of moisture that enhances productivity. Their properties make adhesion strong minimizing the need for mechanical fasteners.

Product Insights

The demand for adhesives is prominent in the automotive industry and industrial assembly. These products help in enhancing product efficiency along with reducing the cost of production. The requirement of adhesives is significant in automotive production; for instance, around 15 kilograms of adhesives are required in assembling, bonding, and laminating the interior parts of a vehicle. Also, the growing demand for lightweight vehicles further augments their demand as they eliminate the need for mechanical fasteners and provide enhanced strength and durability.

Sealants segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast years. These products are utilized in the construction industry in both the exterior and interior of buildings, such as furniture, doors, windows, facades and cracks in the wall. The growing emphasis on using eco-friendly products is anticipated to compel builders to use MS polymer hybrid sealants. The product segment is further segregated into colored and transparent.

Global MS polymer hybrid adhesives & sealants market

Consumer preference for transparent sealants has gained momentum over the past years. One of the major challenges associated with colored sealants is the availability of the exact shade, which can match the paint color applied to the structure. Transparent sealants help resolve this issue as they can be painted with the same color as the building structure.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific held the largest revenue share in 2018, accounting for 46.4% of the global market. Development in the construction industry, manufacturing sector, and increasing foreign investments in the emerging economies of the region are propelling the demand for MS polymer adhesives & sealants in the region. The growing infrastructural developments along with increasing automotive production in the region is anticipated to augment the market growth. According to the OICA, Asia Pacific was the largest producer of motor vehicles as of 2018.

Europe held the second-largest revenue share in 2018. The strong output from the construction industry, owing to increasing consumer spending for both residential and non-residential infrastructure is propelling the product demand. The shift in the trend toward the deployment of environmental-friendly adhesives & sealants in the construction industry is a key reason for the adaption of MS polymer hybrid adhesives & sealants.

North America witnessed considerable growth in the construction sector in 2018. Increasing repair and refurbishment projects along with commercial projects have aided the consumption of MS polymer hybrid sealants in the region. Significant investments in the upgrading of infrastructure, especially in the wider New York metro area, is expected to trigger the growth of the U.S. construction output, eventually contributing towards market growth.

MS Polymer Hybrid Adhesives & Sealants Market Share Insights
