The global MS polymer hybrid adhesives & sealants market size was valued at USD 9.44 billion in 2021, and it is anticipated to reach USD 19.24 billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 8.23%.
MS Polymer Adhesive is a synthetic bonding solution made of polymers that may adhere things together. A polymer is constructed from a succession of units that are linked together. These adhesives have a stronger strength, bond, and resistance when compared to other adhesives that are currently available on the market. They are activated by a catalyst, which is most commonly water and can cling to various surfaces. They are finding increased application in many industries, including aviation, construction, home renovation, and the automobile industry, amongst many others. There are many different types; some examples are urethanes, epoxies, resins, cyanoacrylates, and methacrylate. Because each type possesses a unique set of features, they can be put to work in various contexts. These hybrid adhesives and sealants are resistant to water, do not include any volatile organic compounds (VOCs), do not deteriorate when exposed to ultraviolet light, and contain no isocyanate, solvent, silicone, or PVC.
The fact that hybrid adhesives and sealants are less harmful to the environment contributes to the rise in demand for these products in the construction and automotive industries. In addition, the application of hybrid adhesives and sealants is impacted by temperature and the load-bearing capability of adhesion. As a result, they cannot be utilized in applications that include temperatures that are either too high or too low.

A steadily increasing demand for hybrid resins in the production of adhesives and sealants
Next-generation adhesives and sealants are being developed to offer a diverse selection of solutions, each of which can be customized to some extent to serve individual customers' requirements better. The producers are investing significant money into research and development to combine the various adhesive bonding technologies. The hybrid adhesives formed by combining these two substances will have the characteristics of the resins employed in their production. For instance, epoxies provide resistance and mechanical strength, polyurethanes (PU) provide flexibility, and methacrylates (MMA) make it possible to assemble things quickly. Henkel has only just introduced an adhesive based on cyanoacrylate and epoxy technologies. This adhesive combines the essential characteristics of structural, instant, and epoxy adhesives, including binding strength, speed, and durability. Because of this, creating hybrid resins for producing high-performance hybrid adhesives and hybrid sealants is a crucial factor in the market's growth.
Rising demand for fuel-efficient vehicles
The use of MS polymer hybrid adhesives and sealants helps reduce the overall weight of a vehicle, improving its fuel efficiency and lowering its emissions of hazardous gases. The presence of stringent emission standards, pressure from governments, growing environmental concerns, and the consequent growing need for fuel-efficient vehicles all contribute to an increase in the demand for electric vehicles and the production of electric vehicles around the world.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates that 10 million electric automobiles will be operating on the world's highways by the end of 2020. Despite the global decline in vehicle sales caused by the pandemic, the number of electric car registrations climbed by 43 per cent in 2020 compared to 2019. In the year 2020, over three million electric cars will be sold all over the world. In addition, there was a growth in the number of electric buses and trucks registered in the most important markets. These figures suggest that the need for adhesives should rise in tandem with the expansion of the electric car market.
There is a growing need for strong adhesives and sealants that are non-toxic and eco-friendly
Manufacturers have been forced to create eco-friendly adhesives with low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) levels by regulations imposed by REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals), the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA), LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), and other regional regulatory agencies. A growing trend in many industries to utilize eco-friendly or green products is driving demand for green adhesives or those with low VOC levels.
The industry presents a substantial growth opportunity as it shifts to a more sustainable product line. In the global construction industry, green buildings are gaining popularity. It seems to hold promise for developing long-lasting, ecologically friendly adhesives. Green adhesive solutions are made from renewable, recycled, remanufactured, or biodegradable resources. Using such environmentally friendly items is also suitable for people's health.
The use of banned or dangerous compounds, such as organotin, mercury, monomeric isocyanates, pyrrolidone, phthalates, and nonylphenols, is increasingly being avoided in the production of adhesives and sealants. It promotes the expansion of the MS polymer adhesives market. It is anticipated to accelerate the use of environmentally friendly products and promote the company's reputation for supporting environmentally friendly products, leading to a rise in trust.
Dissatisfaction among customers
End users typically only accept MS polymer adhesives to a limited extent. This decreased acceptance rate can be caused by a lack of knowledge about the availability of hybrid adhesives or a preference for conventional adhesives. The end-users are happy with the outcomes produced by conventional adhesives. It is common practice to overlook the advantages of employing hybrid adhesives, including improved flexibility and elongation, impact and thermal cycling resistance, peel strength, and long-term durability. Therefore, during the forecast period, the market's expansion is anticipated to be constrained by end-user discontent with hybrid adhesives.
The global MS polymer hybrid adhesives & sealants market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific dominates the market.
The Asia-Pacific region is the most crucial player in the global MS polymer hybrid adhesives and sealants market. The critical element responsible for the considerable penetration of MS polymer hybrid adhesives & sealants in the APAC market is investors' growing interest in developing countries like China, India, and Japan. It is one of the factors that drive the industry. Hybrid adhesives and sealants are expected to be in high demand throughout the projected period due to the rise of the automotive industry and infrastructural development in APAC.
When measured by total consumption, North America's MS polymer hybrid adhesives and sealants market is the second-largest market. During the forecast period, an increase in demand is expected. Repair and maintenance work is becoming more common in older buildings across North America. Demand for MS polymer hybrid adhesives and sealants is expected to increase in Europe due to the region's stringent industrial usage rules. Throughout the projection period, the Middle East and Latin America will continue to have strong demand and expected steady growth.
The global MS polymer hybrid adhesives & sealants market is segmented into three parts based on type, end-use, and region. Further, based on type, the market is bifurcated into Adhesives and Sealants.
Based on end-use, the market is divided into Building & Construction, Automotive & Transportation, and Industrial Assembly. The construction of skyscrapers and multi-story buildings has raised the need for adhesives in the building & construction end-use sector. Adhesives are used to join the panels of these new high-rise structures rather than screws. These buildings benefit from the use of adhesive since it cuts down on panel assembly time, produces excellent finish quality, and does away with the necessity for cold-conducting metal frames in panes and panels. Strengthening occurs due to more uniform load distribution and less joint tension. Due to their environmentally benign qualities, MS polymer adhesives are replacing traditional adhesives & sealants in many businesses.
