The most remarkable thing about the adhesives and sealants industry is its ability to constantly grow at a rate higher than the U.S. GDP over past 30-40 years, due to the industry’s ability to innovate. The introduction of new applications have consistently captured market share from other industries, such as fasteners and signage, but the costs of raw materials have begun to affect market growth. To counter this increase in costs, adhesives and sealants manufacturers took steps to increase production efficiency, shorten customer contracts, and increase production in countries such as India and China where manufacturing costs are low. Sealants and Adhesives in the U.S., a new report from SBI, includes the overall market size estimation, forecast through 2010, top marketers, latest marketing trends, marketing dynamics and end-user analysis.
Scope and Methodology
This SBI report focuses on the market for adhesives and sealants in the U.S., defined as comprising natural adhesives, synthetic adhesives, structural sealants, and nonstructural caulking compounds and sealants.
The market size is determined by the amount of adhesives and sealants supplied to the market in a particular period. The U.S. market size for adhesives and sealants was arrived at by adding imports and subtracting exports from Department of Commerce statistics on adhesives and sealants domestic plant shipments. In mathematical terms, Market size = Shipments + Imports - Exports. The imports refer to the CIF (Cost + Insurance + Freight) value while the exports refer to the FAS (Free Alongside Ship) value.
Shipment statistics are derived from the U.S. Census of Manufacturers and Annual Survey of Manufacturers and estimated and forecasted by SBI. Import and Export data was obtained from the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission. Price trends were tracked from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Producer Price Index.
SBI designates the overall adhesives and sealants business as the market; the four main product groupings (natural base glues and adhesives, synthetic resin and rubber adhesives, structural sealants, and nonstructural caulking compounds and sealants) as categories; and the various products within those categories as segments or even sub segments.
