Wood Adhesives Market Dynamics

Growing Construction Industry 

The scope for wood adhesives is expanding as a result of the expanding developing industry. Any non-metallic material that is applied to one or both sides of two objects and holds them together while preventing their separation is an adhesive, often known as glue, mucilage, or paste. Wooden materials can only be joined together with wood adhesives. The fast increase in China's residential and commercial construction sector is a major driver of its growth. According to the global bank, china is promoting and sustaining a continual urbanization process, with a projected rate of 70% by 2030.

Furthermore, according to China's National Bureau of Statistics, the nation's building production reached a peak in 2021, totaling nearly USD 4.3 trillion. Thus, the demand for wood adhesive tends to rise as a result of these circumstances.

In addition, a survey from the Indian Real Estate Industry estimates that over the next seven years, India would invest over USD 1.3 trillion in housing. There will likely be 60 million new dwellings built. In 2024, there will likely be a 70% increase in the supply of affordable housing. The market for wood adhesives is therefore anticipated to be driven by rising worldwide building activity during the forecast period.

An Increase in Consumer Spending on Furniture and Decorations for the Home

The significant rise in consumer spending on furniture and decoration items is anticipated to fuel the future expansion of the wood adhesives industry. Most wood joinery tasks include the use of wood adhesives, which are a good option for home décor and wooden furniture construction. Luxury furniture and home goods retailer Restoration Hardware company are hopeful that strong consumer spending will continue despite significant supply chain issues. The company is working to shift its focus from curating and selling products to creating and marketing environments. 

For instance, Restoration Hardware's net revenue in the second quarter of 2021 was U.S. 39% from the same period in 2019. Based on the company's stability, RH presently projects that its full-year sales in 2021 would increase by 31% to 33%, up from earlier projections of 25% to 30%. As a result, the market for wood adhesives is growing as a result of customers' increased expenditure on home decor and high-end furniture.

Government Regulations Related to the Production of Adhesives

Globally, governments and regulatory organizations have put in place strict regulations to reduce adhesives' negative environmental effects, especially those brought on by the emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). During the application and curing processes, many wood adhesives contain solvents and reactive compounds that might emit VOCs.

Additionally, Governments have set strict restrictions on VOC emissions from adhesives and created regulatory standards that adhesive producers must adhere to to solve this issue. These rules seek to protect public health, reduce air pollution and lessen the harm that adhesive production and use do to the environment. As a cross-linking agent in adhesives, the chemical compound formaldehyde is categorized as a hazardous air pollutant and a proven human carcinogen.

Furthermore, various locations and nations have varied environmental and emission restrictions. For instance, the European Union has passed laws like the European Union Timber Legislation (EUTR) and the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) legislation to ensure the safe use of chemicals and support environmentally friendly sourcing methods.

Wood Adhesives Market Segment Analysis

The global wood adhesives market is segmented based on product, substrate, resin, technology, application and region.

Rising Urea-Formaldehyde (UF) Because of its Beneficial Attributes

The urea-formaldehyde(UF) has seen significant growth covering nearly 28.2% globally. The segmental growth is due to its advantageous qualities, including its flammability, inexpensive cost, light color and very quick cure rate. The product's poor water resistance, however, is probably going to limit its use in the upcoming years. In external applications that are more vulnerable to moisture, melamine urea-formaldehyde (MUF) resins, which have greater water resistance qualities, are being employed increasingly.

In addition to their low production costs, negligible emissions and bio-based origin, soy-based adhesives have grown in popularity. Soy-based adhesive demand is on the rise as a result of strict rules regarding the formaldehyde emissions that are released during the manufacturing of wood goods made with UF resin. The demand is expected to increase as a result of strategies that cut prices without compromising performance, such as the addition of hydrolyzed soy proteins to phenol-formaldehyde resins.

Global Wood Adhesives Market Geographical Share

Asia-Pacific Growing Household Income and a Rapidly Expanding Middile Class Population

Construction in this sector is predicted to rise substantially, particularly in developing economies such as China, India, Indonesia and Vietnam which covers nearly 60.4% of the region. This is projected to increase demand for engineered panels, which will contribute to seeing the wood adhesives market develop.

The main countries that contribute to the growth of the market in this area are those with rising infrastructure development, such as China, India and Southeast Asian nations. For instance, the construction industry in India boosted its contribution to the GDP of the nation from USD 35.1857 billion in the fourth quarter of 2022 to USD 47.44 billion in the first quarter of 2023.

According to the International Monetary Fund's World Economic Outlook, China and Japan will be the world's second and third-largest economies in the Asia-Pacific in 2021. According to the population reference bureau, China, India and other APAC nations had a combined population of more than 4.3 billion people (as of 2020). Over the following two decades, it is anticipated that these nations will play a larger role in driving global consumption due to rapidly rising household incomes and a rapidly expanding middle-class population.

In Japan more than 58.9% of its houses are built of wood, making it the world's largest country for the construction of wooden dwellings, leading to a growth in the use of wood adhesives. In addition, in India, the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana-Urban (PMAY-U) has approved 114.06 lakh dwellings through November 2021. 89.36 lakh dwellings have been approved for construction, with 52.55 lakhs finished by November 2021.

COVID-19 Impact on Wood Adhesives Market

The global COVID-19 pandemic has contributed to a sudden halt in global industrial operations, affecting adhesives demand as well as their research and processing, resulting in a delay in the wood adhesives market in 2020-2021. The worldwide economic downturn caused by the epidemic has resulted in a decline in disposable income among consumers all around the world. As a result, demand for wooden furniture and other high-end products has decreased significantly, as has demand for wood adhesives.

Russia- Ukraine War Impact

The war could result in volatility in the markets that will impair demand for wood goods and, by extension, wood adhesives. Construction projects, furniture production and other businesses that largely rely on wood adhesives may be impacted by economic instability and security concerns. The total market size and expansion potential may be impacted by decreased demand in the affected regions.

Economic regulations, export limitations and tariffs might alter as a result of geopolitical conflicts. This may affect the export and import of wood adhesives between Russia, Ukraine and other nations. Trade restrictions may force manufacturers to restructure their supply chains, look for alternate sourcing choices, or deal with higher prices.
