Global Instant Adhesives Market - 2020-2027
The instant adhesive strongly bonds two adherends that react with moisture on the surface of adherends and quickly cure & polymerizes. Moreover, instant adhesives are one-part adhesives that cure fast at room temperature, which is solvent-free and has an excellent bonding strength. In addition, it is referred to as cyanoacrylate adhesives that are now widely used in various industries and even at homes because of their unique properties.
Furthermore, the chemical reaction that takes place when the adhesive is curing is called anion polymerization. Moreover, the chemical reaction progresses very fast, thus result in instant bonding within seconds. There are two types of products currently available in the market, methyl cyanoacrylates and ethyl cyanoacrylates. In addition, ethyl cyanoacrylates comprise 90% of the instant adhesive population. In addition, instant adhesive offers significant features such as cures quickly at room temperature, high adhesive strength, excellent transparency after curing, high chemical resistance, one-part nonsolvent and bonds with a wide variety of materials. These benefits are expected to drive the instant adhesive market during the forecast period.

According to industry analysis, the electronics industry's revenue is expected to reach USD 487,190 million from the recorded value of USD 415,895 million with a CAGR of 4.02% during the forecast period. Moreover, the features such as instant bonding, high bonding strength, cured at room temperature and resistance to chemical bonding in the electronic industry are expected to boost the instant adhesive market growth during the forecast period.
Furthermore, the increasing demand for the automotive industry is expected to boost instant adhesive market growth during the forecast period. The automotive industry uses these adhesives to improve durability, enhanced strength and reduced vehicle weight. Moreover, automotive engineers use adhesives to bond dissimilar materials, such as aluminum and carbon fiber or plastic, which would be impossible to accomplish with traditional welding. In addition, the increasing demand for such features is expected to increase the market size of instant adhesive. According to industry analysis, the global automotive market is expected to reach USD 3,790 billion by 2030, from the recorded value of USD 2,680 billion with a CAGR of 2.7% during the forecast period.
However, some limitation such as low elasticity, low heat resistance, low impact resistance, small clearance applications, not ideal for bonding large surfaces, the odor is irritation, blooms, sticks to the skin (must be used with extra care) and must be careful in storage and handling. This limitation is expected to hinder the market growth during the forecast period.
By type, the market is segmented into standard, high resistance to moisture & heat, high peeling/impact resistance, fast-curing, UV curing capability and others. By adherends type, the market is segmented into acrylic resin, polyacetal, polystyrene, polycarbonate, ABS, rigid polyvinyl chloride and polyamide. By substrate, the market is segmented into metal, plastic, wood, glass and others. By application, the market is segmented into iron pushbutton, plug code cover, piano key, Hume pipe packing rubber, disposable medical device and others. By end-user, the market is segmented into automotive, electrical machinery & equipment, musical instruments, aerospace, precision machinery & equipment, medical, industrial and others.
Instant adhesives are gaining demand from woodworking, medical devices, cosmetic packages, toys, lighting fixtures, motors, generators, compressors, and filters, as well as from household appliances. Moreover, instant adhesives can withstand temperatures up to 120 °C, and they have high bonding strength and chemical resistance, as well as high electrical insulation capacity.
Furthermore, cyanoacrylate glue is the technical name for what is commonly known as instant adhesives. The term cyanoacrylate glue generally describes quick-bonding superglues used to combine metal to plastic and even human skin. Moreover, cyanoacrylate glue differs from traditional glue due to its unique bonding conditions. This is because cyanoacrylate glue can only bond with a surface if there is moisture present. This means if the cyanoacrylate glue is placed on a perfectly dry surface, it will not adhere to the surface or form a bond. In contrast, when any moisture volume is present, the cyanoacrylate glue molecules will react with the moisture to form tight chains in between the two surfaces in contact. This reaction generates heat and occurs instantly, which differs from traditional glue bonding by evaporation of the base fluid.
Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the market size during the forecast period due to highly developed automation, electronics and musical instrument sectors. In addition, the continuous investments done in the region to advance the automobile sector are expected to drive market growth. Moreover, China holds the most significant market shares due to the increasing demand for electronic and musical instrumentation. It is expected that the musical instrument will reach USD 7,245 million in 2021 and is expected to grow with a CAGR of 6.90% during the forecast period. In addition, the growing investments by major market players for the R&D activities and expansion of their production capabilities and product portfolios are expected to increase the market growth.
North America is the fastest-growing market due to the increasing demand for the medical and electronic industry. It is expected that the electronic industry will grow by 7% from the previous year, 2019. Moreover, Europe and other countries are expected to contribute the significant growth for the instant adhesive market during the forecast period due to the increasing demand of the automotive industry. In addition, the government regulation in these regions is expected to drive market growth.
The instant adhesives market is fragmented with the presence of regional and global players. The competitive contour lies with the increase in the regional company and growing investment in upstream application. Henkel AG, ThreeBond Holdings Co., Ltd., H.B. Fuller, Huntsman Corporation, 3M Company, Bostik SA, Pidilite Industries, Arkema Group, Master Bond, Sika AG are the major player in the adhesive market.

3M™ Scotch-Weld™ plastic & rubber instant adhesive PR100 is a low viscosity instant adhesive. In addition, PR100 instant adhesive is formulated to give exceptional performance on difficult-to-bond substrates, such as nylon, EPDM, polyethylene and polypropylene, using a suitable primer. Once applied, the glue has fast cures and handling time to keep jobs moving quickly. This cyanoacrylate adhesive is assigned from a flexible container and recommended for applications gasket attachment small joint assembly jewelry assembly orthopedics, and footwear creates a strong, durable, long-lasting bond once applied. Moreover, cyanoacrylate adhesives are applied thinly, with pressure put on the bond for a few seconds, to ensure that the reaction proceeds rapidly. 3M instant adhesives use right from the container and rapidly reach handling strength at room temperature, commonly referred to as super glue to bond many metals, plastics, rubbers, wood, and more.
