The global market is valued at nearly $22 billion in 2011, up from $19.5 billion in 2006. Sealants (both structural and non-structural) comprise the fastest growth sectors of the industry. The five-year compounded annual growth rates (CAGR) since 2006 of structural and non-structural sealants are 3.7% and 3.1%, respectively. Synthetic resin and rubber adhesives represent the largest market value of more than $10.1 billion in 2011 while natural base glues and adhesives growth has been flat since 2006 hovering at the $1.3 billion mark.
Contributing to the increased demand is the continuing economic recovery in rapidly growing emerging markets in Southeast Asia.
