Using adhesive as a bonding agent for glass to glass or glass to other material is widespread. Various industries practice adhesive for bonding glasses especially, furniture, electronic, automotive, and medical. There is varied range of glass bonding adhesives available in the market including UV curable adhesives, hybrid adhesives, epoxy adhesives, and acrylic structural adhesive. Depending upon nature of the application and the kind of substrate to bond, type of glass bonding adhesive considered. There are several factors to determine which type of glass bonding adhesive will best suit the application. Factors include nature of substrate, temperature, stress while bonding, etc. Among glass bonding adhesive mentioned above, UV curable adhesive is mostly used in a variety of applications as they are ideal for both, high-speed production or any manual application.
Glass Bonding Adhesive Market: Drivers & Restraints
In developing countries, massive investment is made to establish automotive, aerospace, infrastructure development and rail projects. This growth demands high quality, high-performance adhesive. Glass bonding adhesive adhere proven record of providing exceptional performance at low cost while taking least assembly time. Therefore it conquered market of conventional adhesive and became the must for discrete manufacturing and assembling industries. UV curable epoxy and silicone type is projected to be the fastest-growing adhesives among other glass bonding adhesives. These glass bonding adhesives are sustainable non-hazardous adhesive; they are more technology advanced than traditional conventional adhesives.
Glass bonding adhesive is comparatively expensive than conventional adhesive, and this factor is restraining the glass bonding adhesive market. Many advancements are happening in conventional adhesive technology, this progression in the conventional adhesive is negatively affecting the glass bonding adhesive market and bringing challenges especially to UV cured glass bonding adhesive.
