Global water based adhesive market is projected to grow from $ 15 billion in 2018 to $ 20 billion by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period. Growth of various applications including packaging, woodwork, and tapes & labels is fueling the demand for water based adhesives. However, lack of extended storage, owing to the short shelf life of water based adhesives is expected to hinder market growth.

Global water based adhesive market has been categorized into resin type, application and region. Based on resin type, the market has been segmented into polyvinyl acetate (PVA) emulsion, vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE) emulsion, styrene butadiene (SB) latex, and others. Acrylic polymer emulsion (PAE) segment is anticipated to account for a major market share during the forecast period. Acrylic polymer emulsion is an eco-friendly adhesive, which offers adequate balance between tack, shear and peel strength of the bond. It is extensively preferred in numerous packaging applications, such as bookbinding, paper bags, cartons, labels, films, foils, paperboard decals, wood assembly, leather binding and automobile upholstery. Based on application, the market has been segmented into tapes & labels, automotive & transportation, building & construction and woodwork. Among these, tapes & labels segment is anticipated to emerge as the fastest-growing application of water based adhesives during the forecast period, owing to its use in medium and heavy-duty carton sealing, decoration, general purpose repair, strapping & bundling and stationery. Tapes & labels are predominantly used in the packaging of electrical & electronic devices, medical packaging, drug delivery system packaging and construction materials packaging during transit, in addition to automotive and logistics related packaging and packaging of industrial and consumer goods.

APAC water based adhesive market is anticipated to register highest CAGR during the forecast period. The water based adhesive market in the APAC region has been segmented into Japan, India, China, South Korea, Indonesia, Taiwan, Thailand and rest of APAC. Owing to the fastest-growing markets of China, India and other APAC countries, industries including paper & packaging, woodwork, building & construction, and automotive & transportation are anticipated to flourish over the next decade. Since water based adhesives have extensive applications in these industries, its market in the region is anticipated to register strong growth in coming years.
