Competitive vendor landscape

Advances in polyurethane-based hot melt adhesives such as switching of the production from other hot melts to reactive polyurethane hot melt adhesives has enabled vendors to compete in terms of quality products for emerging applications. Also, less stringent regulations about the emission of greenhouse gases and VOCs in countries such as China and India are providing opportunities for the vendors to expand their portfolio and to sell them at competitive prices in these markets. Prominent vendors are concentrating on R&D to transform their products to comply with the regulations imposed by REACH and EPA. These vendors are establishing their market presence by expanding their product portfolios into many geographies.

According to Chandrakumar Badala Jaganathan, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on additives, adhesives, and sealants, “A majority of the players have shifted their manufacturing facilities to the developing regions to reduce the overhead costs of production. In addition, these vendors are entering into strategic collaborations and agreements for sales and distribution to maintain their market dominance.”
