June 01, 2020

As per the report titled ‘Pressure Sensitive Adhesives Market Size By Technology, By Product, By Application, By Sector, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Growth Potential, Price Trends, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2019 - 2026’, available with Market Study Report LLC, worldwide pressure sensitive adhesives market is estimated to accrue USD 10.5 billion by the year 2026.

Innovations in packaging sector, escalating demand for tapes & labels from an array of industry verticals, advancements in PSA technologies and increasing R&D investments are driving the growth of global pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) market. The product is extensively used as an alternative to mechanical fasteners and liquid & spray adhesives.

Based on the technology scope, solvent-based segment is slated to exhibit a CAGR of 5% through 2026. Better peel and sheer strength than water-based adhesives along with favorable properties like superior moisture resistance and film protection, which finds usage in tapes and films are stimulating the segment growth. However, strict environmental regulations will impede the product demand as it contains acrylic solvents which are harmful.
