Market Insight

Polyurethane adhesives are a type of elastic glue that has an extraordinary elasticity and high fracture resistance. They deliver strong impact-resistant joints and have better low-temperature strength as compared to other adhesives. Polyurethane adhesives are cured fast and are often used with primers. One and two-component polyurethane adhesives are available commercially. Polyurethane adhesives are ideal for structural bonding of various porous and non-porous materials such as metal, glass, and plastics. They are used for materials that require high strength, impact resistance, and high peel strength. They are used in several end-use applications such as electronics & appliances, automotive, building & construction, footwear, and packaging.


The spread of COVID-19 has severely affected the polyurethane adhesives market across the globe. COVID-19 pandemic hampered the production and demand, disrupting the supply chain of polyurethane adhesives, and affected the market by its impact on firms and the financial markets. The demand for polyurethane adhesives has decreased from the end-users. The COVID19 pandemic has severely affected the revenue of end-user industries. Several end-users have stopped their production or closed their production unit. The shortage of raw materials is another major challenge faced by the industry during the pandemic. Furthermore, the lower production of polyurethane adhesives in countries including China, Taiwan, India, and Japan has created a shortage in the global market. Other countries dependent on the import are facing a severe shortage of polyurethane adhesives during the pandemic. The lower production and shortage of polyurethane adhesives in the market are estimated to hamper the market growth over a shorter period.


Polyurethane adhesives offer a high range of applications in numerous industries. The growth in end-use industries such as electronics, automotive, and construction industry primarily drives the growth of the polyurethane adhesives market. The increasing production of lightweight vehicles as improving fuel-efficiency and controlling emissions remains a top priority within the automotive and commercial vehicle industries is anticipated to boost the PU adhesives market. In addition, polyurethane adhesives are finding increasing uses within the building & construction industry due to their ability to bond with non-porous materials such as metal to wood, or mirrors to walls and have the ability to set in high moisture condition. Furthermore, the increasing demand for hot melt PU adhesives driven by the rapidly growing demand from the woodworking and automotive industries also drives the growth of the polyurethane adhesives market. However, the availability of substitutes such as Polyvinyl Acetate (PVA), epoxy, Ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), acrylic adhesives, and silicone adhesives hinders the growth of the PU adhesives market. Moreover, the use of PU adhesives in emerging applications such as in medical devices manufacturing and marine applications creates beneficial opportunities for the growth of the PU adhesives market.


Among the regions, Asia-Pacific holds the dominant share in the polyurethane adhesives market and is expected to lead the market over the forecast period to 2026. The Asia-pacific region offers a substantial potential for market growth owing to rapid growth in markets such as China, India, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand. Growing investments in residential and green building projects in India are projected to further support the growth of the polyurethane adhesives market throughout the forecast period. Additionally, the presence of a large number of furniture, packaging, footwear, electrical & electronics manufacturers is likely to further surge the usage of PU adhesives in the coming years in India. North America holds the second-largest share in the global PU adhesives market. The growing influence of urbanization and continuous investment in the construction sector, automobile, and computer technology is augmenting the demand for polyurethane adhesive in North America.
