Bioadhesives Market Outlook - 2021–2028

The global bioadhesives market size was valued at $3.7 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $5.2 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 4.4% from 2021 to 2028.

Bioadhesives are naturally occurring polymeric materials with adhesive properties and the ability to bind to biological surfaces. Biological intermediates, such as starch, cellulose, or gelatin, are used to make this substance. Bioadhesives are becoming more common due to their environment-friendly nature, and are now favored over synthetic adhesives. These adhesives are used in a variety of end-use industries, including wood, packaging & paper, manufacturing, and medicine.

Impact Of Covid-19 On The Global Bioadhesives Market

  • COVID-19 has spread to almost 213 countries around the globe with the World Health Organization declaring it a public health emergency on March 11th, 2020.  
  • Some of the major economies suffering the COVID-19 crises include Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the UK, and Norway. 
  • Bioadhesive is primarily used in paper & packaging, construction, woodworking, personal care, and medical sectors. Furthermore, due to the impact of national lockdown, these sectors were experiencing slight decline in the growth rate.
  • In many countries, the economy has dropped due to the halt of several industries, especially transport and supply chain. Demand for the product has been hindered as there is no development due to the lockdown. 
  • The demand–supply gap, disruptions in raw material procurement, and price volatility are expected to hamper the growth of the chemical industry during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • According to economists, the Chinese economy is anticipated to be hit further by reduced global demand for its products due to the effect of the pandemic. As the coronavirus pandemic escalates, the growth rate falls sharply against the backdrop of volatile markets and growing credit stress.
  • The economy of China has been hit far harder than projected, although a tentative stabilization has begun. In European countries and the U.S., increasing restrictions on travel & transportation and prolonged lockdown have reduced the product demand during the first quarter of 2020. However, the market is expected to recover by the end of 2021.

Analyst Review

The global bioadhesives market is moving toward the growth stabilization phase in its industry life cycle. The factors driving the growth of the bioadhesives market are surge in demand from paper & packaging, construction, woodworking, personal care, and medical sectors. During the forecast period, the plant-based segment is expected to account for the largest share of the bioadhesives market. Natural adhesives derived from organic sources, such as soy protein, starch (dextrin), and lignin, are known as plant-based adhesives. Green, renewable, natural, environment-friendly, and bio-based adhesives are the other terms used for them. Bioadhesives are used in a variety of industries, including woodworking, packaging, and construction. 

During the forecast period, the medical segment is expected to be the fastest-growing application industry in the bioadhesives sector. Attributed to the growing population and increased understanding of the benefits of bio-based products, the demand for healthcare products and services has skyrocketed. These adhesives, for example, are used in healthcare product formulations for use in drug delivery systems, which enable drugs to be absorbed into biological elements such as body tissues. Bioadhesives may be used in biomedical applications that require skin or other body tissue. Therefore, the increasing use of bioadhesives in the medical segment is expected to drive the market growth over the next five years. 

China, India, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, and the rest of Asia-Pacific are the countries that are in Asia-Pacific. The bioadhesives market in China is expanding rapidly as a result of increased exports of biodegradable products to North America, Europe, and other developed countries where consumer knowledge of sustainability is high and bioadhesives are in high demand. In addition, major regional companies have ramped up their production capacities of biodegradable adhesives, which is fueling the growth of bioadhesives manufacturing in China.
