September 29, 2021 | Packaging

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Packaging Adhesives Market Report by Type (Water-based Adhesives, Solvent-based Adhesives, Hot-melt Adhesives, and Others), Substrate Material Type (Acrylics, Polyurethane, Polyvinyl Chloride, Polypropylene, and Others), Packaging Type (Flexible Packaging, Folding Cartons, Boxes & Cases, Labeling, and Others), End-Use Industry (Food & Beverages, Cosmetics, Healthcare, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” finds that the global packaging adhesives market reached a value of US$ 13.1 Billion in 2023. Packaging adhesives refer to materials that are used for binding two or more surfaces together. Adhesives are manufactured from polymeric materials that are naturally or synthetically obtained from polychloroprene, polyurethane, polyvinyl acetate, cellulose, or polyvinyl pyrrolidone. They are available in solvent-based, water-based, and hot-melt adhesive variants, which can be used for porous, non-porous substrates and plastic applications. As a result, packaging adhesives find applications in case and carton closures, flexible packaging, folding cartons and envelopes, and corrugated converting.

Global Packaging Adhesives Market Trends: 

The global packaging adhesives market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for packaged food products. The flourishing food and beverage industry utilizes packaging adhesives in rigid food boxes, paper cartons, and cases to store food products. The growing consumer awareness regarding food safety has also increased the preference for sustainable adhesives that can be used with recyclable products. In the pharmaceutical sector, packaging adhesives are used to protect the medicines from contaminants, microorganisms, and bacteria and maintain the sterility of the products. Besides this, with the expanding e-commerce industry, there has been increasing utilization of pressure-sensitive adhesives and tapes, such as hot-melt packaging tapes, with advanced adhesive formulations. They provide box-sealing tape solutions to deliver heavier, bulkier and more valuable packages safely to the doorsteps of consumers. Furthermore, the development of water-based packaging adhesives is proving a positive outlook to the market. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% during 2024-2032.
