Pressure sensitive adhesive form bonds under applied pressure. Water or heat is not required to apply the adhesive. PSA occupy the largest market share in the adhesives business. They are either permanent or removable and can match with a variety of substrates. The key raw materials used in manufacturing of pressure sensitive adhesive are acrylics, silicone, and rubber. Other formulations include polyurethane, vinyl acetate, epoxy, SBS, etc.

Recently the demand for water-based adhesives has increased substantially. Petroleum-based adhesives are 15%-20% costlier than petroleum-free adhesives. Therefore, they are witnessed to see a slow growth in the future due to rising environmental concerns and companies focusing on sustainable solutions; that is, adhesives made from bio-based materials are going to be the key drivers for the pressure sensitive adhesive market.

With the increasing capabilities of pressure sensitive adhesives in tapes and labels, high demand in automotive sector and growing health concerns, strict laws on energy efficiency, growing environmental concerns on Green House Emissions. The RFID labels that are one of the largest applications of PSA are catering to different applications due to its ability to assist in inventory and security tracking at locations such as airports, companies, sea ports, and shopping malls. The graphics used for decorating automobile as a style statement are made from PSA graphics.

The major players in the pressure sensitive adhesives market discussed in the report are 3M, Avery Dennison, H.B. Fuller, Bostik, Franklin Adhesives, Sika, Scapa, and other top players in the market.


Key factors driving market growth include the increase in the number of working women, the rise in dual income nuclear families, increasing disposable income, and higher per capita spends on lifestyle products. In addition, social and cultural factors also influence demand in the market.

Also, increasing adoption of low cost flexible packaging aids drives the pressure sensitive adhesive market in the packaging sector.


Raw materials for adhesives are polymeric materials may be naturally occurring and synthetic where natural polymers like starch, gelatin, asphalt, bitumen natural rubber, and resin and synthetic polymers like vinyl & acrylics have witnessed a volatility in raw material costs during this period especially affected demand for adhesives and sealants during 2013 and 2014. Growing volatility in the prices of raw materials has increased pressure on margins of adhesives and sealants manufacturers.
