Published:  Mar 2022 Report Code: KSI061612050 Pages: 113

The global laminating adhesives market is evaluated at US$984.413 million for the year 2020, growing at a CAGR of 5.46%, to reach a market size of US$1,428.340 million by the year 2027.

Lamination is the process of making a composite material in the form of multiple layers so that the resultant material formed acquires better durability, strength, stability, insulation, and even appearance. It involves the joining of two or more flexible packaging substrates like paper, films, and aluminium foil with the help of a bonding agent or adhesive. The market is majorly driven by rising flexible packaging demand in the growing retail sector in the form of pouches, bags, or tubes. Different consumer commodities worldwide like gels, toothpaste, chips, glues, creams, and so forth demand flexible packaging to provide protection and enhance the shelf life of the end products. Also, because of the rising construction activities and population, the demand for lamination used for furniture and walls in the interior decor domain is anticipated to rise during the forecast period.

The recent outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease had a negative impact on the lamination adhesive market because of the worldwide lockdown and halting in the commercial and industrial operations leading to the temporal cessation in flexible packaging material requirements and due to lesser decoration applications in homes and offices. However, the healthcare segment adopted the application of laminations for medical purposes, hence mildly increasing the market size of the laminate adhesive market.

Rising flexible packaging growth in retail

Growing awareness, easier accessibility, and factors like increased disposable income across the globe have resulted in higher retail product consumption and demand, which has propelled the demand for flexible packaging composite materials and hence, the laminate adhesive market. Flexible packaging, in addition to packing, protects from external factors like temperature, humidity, or sunlight and thereby helps in increasing the shelf life of the products packed via this means. Laminated tubes are another product of flexible packaging which are being increasingly adopted for commercial packaging, especially in the pharmaceutical industry. Food and beverage, cosmetics, and personal care product markets are observing a rapid increase in demand, and hence, the use of flexible packaging material has increased on a global scale. As per the May 2021 article published by United Nations, the global e-commerce retail sales reached USD 26.7 trillion, from 16 percent in 2020 to 19 percent in 2021. Also, with increasing disposable income in developing countries, the consumption and sales of food, cosmetics, and other retail products are projected to increase, leading to the demand for flexible packaging and, eventually, the growth of the laminate adhesive market in the forecast period and beyond.

Growing worldwide construction and population

The rise in the adoption of laminates for furniture or wall decoration due to rising construction endeavours is another prominent driver in boosting the growth of the laminate adhesives market. With growing environmental awareness, the rise in demand for sustainable agriculture, and protective lamination for home walls and floors is anticipated to increase laminate application, further driving the growth of the laminate adhesive market in the coming years. As per the article published by the Global Construction Review (GCR), the global construction output is expected to be 35% higher in the decade to 2030, as compared to the ten years to 2020, with US$15.2 trillion by 2030 amounting to 13.5% of global GDP. The increasing construction worldwide is expected to be followed by robust interior design growth, with floor, wall, and wood laminates being an integral part, thus driving the demand and growth for the laminate adhesives market. Rapid advancements and a growing population are other major drivers to propel the growth of the laminate adhesive market during the forecast period and beyond.

The Asia Pacific to show a significant market growth

Geographically, the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to show robust growth in the laminate adhesives market. With the growing population, rising standards of living, increasing disposable income, and rapid consumption and use of packaged food, cosmetics, and other commodities, the Asia Pacific region is expected to rise rapidly in terms of the global laminate adhesive market. As per the article published in June 2021 by, the market for manufacturing laminated tubes has reached more than 47% of the market share. Also, the same article stated that the Asia Pacific is expected to cover the higher share of the market for laminated tubes with an observation of 6.9% in 10 years. Also, as per the article by Welmica Laminates Pvt Ltd, the USD 2.8 billion Indian laminate market will expand at a CAGR of 6.4% between 2020-2027, and the organized furniture market is estimated for a 35% CAGR shortly. With dominant populations in countries like China and India, the demand for packaged utilities and construction projects is expected to drive the laminated adhesives market on a positive scale during the forecast period and beyond.
