The composite adhesives market was adversely impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Supply chain disruption, idling of factories, and raw material procurement are the key issues faced by the market during the pandemic. Accordingly, market players modified their work patterns to maintain a standard operation of their products and services, still incurred huge losses. For instance, US-based TPI Composites which deals with composite adhesives faced a net loss of US$ 9 million in the first quarter of 2020. The composite adhesives market gained decent demand towards the end of 2020. Going forward, the market is projected to witness robust growth owing to rising demand for composite adhesives in the aerospace and automobile sector.
Composite Adhesives Market – By Material Type
Epoxy dominated the material segment in the composite adhesives market in 2021. This type of material is used for bonding a wide range of composite materials owing to its robust properties. Epoxy comes with excellent mechanical shock resistance, high-temperature resistance, low shrinkage, high strength, and low cost, making it a superior material for use in automotive, aerospace, and construction. Lately, steps are being taken to expand the epoxy adhesives portfolio by developing environment-friendly epoxy adhesives. For instance, as per the October 2020 journal by Taylor & Francis Group, environmentally friendly epoxy composite adhesive was developed implementing commercially available materials, exhibiting a 12% rise in green carbon content and a 22% rise in shear strength. The journal also states that a 30% increase in shear strength was observed when the eco-friendly epoxy composite adhesive was applied on each edge of the mixed modulus mode instead of a fossil-based epoxy adhesive. Such developments in the epoxy composite adhesive segment will increase its demand in the forecast period. Polyurethane and cyanoacrylate will witness significant demand in the forecast period.

Composite Adhesives Market – By Component
Two-component adhesives dominated the composite adhesives market in 2021. These products are also known as reactive adhesives. Two-component adhesives are suitable for applications in which very high strengths are expected from adhesive joints. Such adhesives are majorly utilized to attach high-strength materials such as painted, coated, bare, and composite materials such as carbon fibre-reinforced plastics (aramid, carbon, CFC) or glass-reinforced plastics (GRP + SMC) to either similar or different types of composite material. Owing to such robust qualities, research organizations and market players are focusing on the expanding two-component adhesive portfolio through new developments. For instance, as per the September 2021 news report by the Adhesive and Sealant Council, US-based composite adhesive manufacturer Master Bond Inc. launched a new two-component adhesive (EP21TDC-210) for bonding application of aerospace components. Such developments in the two-component adhesive will increase its demand in the composite adhesives market during the forecast period.
Composite Adhesives Market – By End Use Industry
The automotive sector held the largest market share in the composite adhesives market in 2021 and is growing at a CAGR of 8.4% in the forecast period. The demand for weight reduction in automobiles and enhanced fuel efficiency is increasing globally and to achieve this, manufacturers focus on the higher uses of composite materials made of epoxy, cyanoacrylate, and polyurethane. The higher uses of composite materials in automobiles will increase the implementation of composite adhesives and in turn, this will drive the growth of the market in the forecast period. For instance, in August 2020, Toyota Motors collaborated with BASF to reduce the mass of the third-row seat of the new 2021 Toyota Sienna with the help of glass-reinforced composite material. Similarly, in August 2021, Australia-based Carbon Revolution which deals with composite technology, supplied carbon fiber composite wheels to Ford Motors for the 2022 Ford GT Heritage Edition. Such growing use of composites in automobiles will increase the higher usage of composite adhesives to join composite parts and this will drive the growth of the market in the forecast period. The aerospace sector will drive the growth of the market significantly in the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for lightweight aircraft components.
Composite Adhesives Market – By Geography
The North American region held the largest market share in the composite adhesives market in 2021 with a market share of up to 34%. The presence of several market players and the high investment is increasing the demand for composite adhesives in this region. For instance, in August 2021, Panacol USA developed a new biocompatible adhesive named Vitralit UV 7030 for medical device assembly applications. Similarly, in April 2020, California-based carbon fiber composite manufacturer Arris Composites secured $48.5 million Series B funding for expanding its proprietary composite production capabilities and open facilities in the U.S. and Taiwan.

Composite Adhesives Market Challenges
Strict environmental regulations might hamper the market’s growth
Composite adhesives are an integral part of the joining and assembly process in several industries. However, these materials are always monitored by various government regulations regarding the use of any harmful chemicals during the manufacturing process. For instance, as per the December 2020 journal by Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute about the adhesives and surface treatments for structural applications, the European Union regulation Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) is constantly evolving regarding the appropriate implementation of its rules and regulations regarding requalification of new composite adhesive versions. If adequate measures are not duly implemented by adhesive manufacturers, REACH tags the manufacturing process as obsolescence and stops the production line. For example, the use of bicomponent polyurethane in the adhesive formulation was considered harmful by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), an agency associated with REACH regulation. Such continuous monitoring and implementation of strict regulations might hamper the growth of the composite adhesives market in the forecast period.
