Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wf9b7n/global_adhesives) has announced the addition of the “Global Adhesives & Sealants Market Report: 2015 Edition” report to their offering.

Adhesive is a broad term as it incorporates various materials like cement, glue, mucilage, and paste among others. Adhesives majorly comprise of polymers, which harden either in a physical manner or as a result of a chemical reaction, and are generally classified on the basis of their curing, or bonding, mechanism. On the other hand, sealant is a soft, pliable material that changes state to become solid after application, and is chiefly employed for the prevention of air, noise, dust, fire, smoke, and liquid penetration, where structural strength is not required. Sealants fall between the higher-strength adhesives and extremely low-strength putties and caulks. Adhesives and sealants are categorized on the basis of whether the bonding involves a physical or chemical mechanism.

The key factors driving growth of the global adhesives and sealants industry include expanding construction industry, growing transportation sector, growing global GDP, increasing focus towards environmental friendly adhesives and growing miniaturization trends in electronics. The global adhesives and sealants market is likely to be driven by the ameliorating Asia Pacific market, skewed trends in the US transportation sector and increasing demand for more environment friendly products.
