Electric Vehicle Adhesives Market


COVID-19 Impact

How has the demand for Electric Vehicle Adhesive been affected by COVID-19?

Vehicle production had been hampered in major countries in early 2020 due to supply shortages, lockdowns, and production suspensions. Due to lockdowns and restrictions imposed to prevent the virus, demand for new vehicles was low in pandemic-affected countries.

The market for electric vehicle adhesives is rapidly approaching pre-COVID levels, and a healthy growth rate is expected over the forecast period, fueled by economic recovery in most developing countries.

Segment-Wise Analysis

Why is the Polyurethane resin type accounted to have the largest market share?

Adhesives made from various resins have different properties and are chosen based on the application.

Urethane polymers are used to make polyurethane adhesives. They have exceptional elasticity and elongation up to 500.0% before fracture. Polyurethane electric vehicle adhesives have good adhesion to smooth and porous surfaces.

Urethane systems have other notable properties such as high flexibility, abrasion resistance, superior physical strength, and gap-filling capabilities. These adhesives are also inexpensive. Because of their elastic bonding, they are preferred in applications such as automotive and construction.

Polyurethane adhesives are classified into three types: two-component polyurethane, one-component rigid polyurethane adhesives, and two-component elastic polyurethane adhesives. Polyurethane adhesive bonds form in two stages: first, the adhesive cools back down to achieve the holding strength, and then the adhesive uses the moisture to continue curing for hours to days to complete the final structural strength.

Which vehicle type will create opportunities for a rise in demand for Electric Vehicle Adhesives?

During the forecast period, the growth of electric cars and buses is expected to drive the growth of Electric Vehicle adhesives.

Critical policy changes implemented by leading countries in electric mobility are driving the growth of Electric Vehicles. These countries have implemented stricter emission standards and incentives for electric cars. They are encouraging investments in the Electric Vehicle industry value chain to achieve price parity between Electric Vehicles and ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) vehicles. Adhesive technology, used in various applications in an Electric Vehicle, is critical in making Electric Vehicles lightweight.

The Electric Vehicle market has experienced rapid growth, as evidenced by brisk sales in recent years. Due to a decade of rapid growth, over 10.2 million electric cars will be worldwide by the end of 2021.

Which region is consolidating its Electric Vehicle Adhesives Market dominance in the world?

Over the forecast period 2021-2030, Asia Pacific will account for the largest market revenue share with 60.0% in 2021 in the global electric vehicle adhesives market. Factors such as rapid industrialization in developing countries, increased demand for such adhesives in the automotive industry, growth in the automotive sector, increasing sales and production of electric vehicles, and so on all contribute to the region holding the largest market share in the forecast years.

China holds a significant share of the Asia pacific electric vehicle adhesives market. The country’s market is expected to expand at a rapid pace soon. Demand for electric vehicle adhesives has increased in India and China as infrastructure and construction sectors in these countries have grown significantly. India is expected to invest significantly in infrastructure development shortly.
