Flooring Adhesives Market, By Resin Type (Polyurethane, Epoxy, Acrylic, Vinyl, Others), By Technolog

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1945653


The Flooring Adhesives Market is expected to witness high growth driven by government regulations leading to the development of bio-based adhesives in recent years. Increasing demand from applications including wood, tile & stone, laminate, carpet, others, is expected to drive the growth of the market.

Floor coverings come in a variety of materials and cover many different sub-straights. In today’s market, you can find luxury vinyl plank and tile flooring designed that mimic the appearance of porcelain tile and hardwood floors as well as carpet and other floor coverings to meet the latest trends and durability requirements. These materials need to adhere to a substrate with an adhesive that will last the lifetime of the flooring surface, stand up to various performance requirements, and provide quick and easy installation.

Segment Insights

Based on technology, the global floor adhesives market has been segmented into water-based, solvent-based, hot-melt based, wood-based, and others. In terms of demand, the water-based technology segment is expected to dominate the market. This can be attributed to the rising demand for eco-friendly and zero VOC emission floor adhesives. Also, the wood-based segment is expected to have a prominent share in the market due to its quick curing, solvent-less system, and user-friendly properties.

Based on the resin type, the epoxy resin segment is expected to be the largest segment of the market during the forecast period. The major reason for the increasing adoption of epoxy adhesives in the flooring industry is their capacity to provide a good balance of handling characteristics and superior physical properties. These adhesives adhere well to a wide variety of substrates. Also, polyurethane floorings are widely used in commercial and industrial sectors, due to their high resistance to chemicals, temperature, and abrasion and are expected to have a significant demand during the forecast period.

Based on the application, the tile & stone segment is expected to have the highest demand during the forecast period. Adhesives are extensively used in flooring applications for pasting the tile and stone floors. Most of the regions prefer the tile and stone flooring which is the trend in many countries followed by wood.

The floor adhesive market in Asia-Pacific is anticipated to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period due to the increase in investments in infrastructural development. Fast-growing economies such as China, South Korea, India, and other countries in South-east Asia are attracting several global market players to invest in the Asia Pacific region. These manufacturers are competing to reach an extensive customer base in countries such as China and India to cater to the increasing demand for adhesives in residential and industrial sectors. The Middle East is expected to exhibit a considerable growth rate for bio-based floor adhesives, due to the rising demand for reducing carbon footprints and also due to the increasing infrastructural development to boost tourism in the region.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Stringent government regulations leading to the development of bio-based adhesives
  • Rapid industrialization and urbanization in the Asia Pacific
  • Growth of the tourism industry in the Middle East

Key Developments:
