A pressure sensitive adhesive is defined as a material, which adhere two different or identical surfaces together solely through surface contact, and is achieved by applying initial external pressure. Pressure sensitive adhesives are available in the market in removable, permanent, or repositionable form. These adhesives assist automotive manufacturers to produce end products with long term reliability, lighter overall weight, and slimmer profiles. Growth in flexible packaging industry, miniaturization of electron devices, increase in demand of labels across various end-user industries, and product innovation are the major factors that drive the market growth globally. Pressure sensitive adhesives are increasingly replacing mechanical fasteners in automotive and transportation applications, as they provide improved corrosion resistance.

In 2016, water-based pressure sensitive adhesives accounted for more than one-third of the market, in terms of revenue. Water-based adhesives deliver same level of performance as solvent-based acrylics and are generally preferred when safety & lesser cost are preferred, since these adhesives requires lesser steps, which are necessary for manufacturing solvent-based adhesives. In addition, water-based adhesives are eco-friendly in nature.

Surge in demand for labels from various end-use industries including medical and packaging & electronics and continuous advancements in label technologies have made labels the highest growing application in pressure sensitive adhesives industry.

Packaging holds the maximum share by end user, in terms of revenue, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.7% during the forecast period. Pressure sensitive adhesives display high adhesion values and is expected to support several kilograms of weight per centimeter square of the contact area, even at high temperatures.
