Sealants Market Size Analysis

According to a research survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, in 2022, the Global Sealants Market was worth US$ 11,798.0 Mn and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% over the forecast period. The market is expected to hit US$ 20,344.5 Mn by 2032 end. From 2017–2021, when the market’s CAGR was 4.9%, the market underwent significant growth.

Sealants are primarily used to fill gaps and resist static displacements of substrates. Sealants are formulated with similar chemicals and technologies. They are used in many sectors, such as paper packaging, woodworking, footwear manufacturing, building & construction, and electrical & electronics.

Market Dynamic


The demand for sealants is driven by the increasing population and urbanization in emerging nations such as China, India, and Indonesia. There is a growing desire for permanent housing in these nations, fuelling the demand for sealants. The increasing necessity for electronic devices such as electronics components, laptops, and smartphones is projected to boost the European electronic industry’s market expansion


The application of sealants emits an immense quantity of chemicals considered harmful and dangerous when inhaled. As regulations are becoming stricter, the industry is creating a new ecosystem. According to Emerald Performance Materials’ Vice President, “The regulatory landscape is creating significant trials for the industry. Environment protection agencies such as the U.S Environmental Protection Agency are placing more hurdles and restrictions on manufacturers.”


The building and construction industry has the most significant market share, with market demand rising as the sector grows. In response to the increasing demand for sealants and other concrete-related materials, the market area is expected to expand over the upcoming ten years. Adhesives are used in many applications, including flooring, glazing, walls, ceilings, and windows. This growth will support demand for adhesives across five key markets: sealant systems, adhesion promoters; construction resins; fireproofing agents; and formulation additives.

Segment-Wise Analysis

Why are Building & Construction projected to have the highest market share in the Sealants market?

A major share in the sealants market is taken by the building & construction segment, which comprises the majority of sealing applications. In several applications, sealants also function as adhesives. For example, in structural glazing on glass-walled buildings. Sealants do not have high tensile strength like adhesives but have superior durability and dependability when subjected to conditions of chemical attack, high humidity, or electrical stress.

Why is the Silicon Sealant segment most frequently used in various applications?

The global silicone sealants market is assessed based on type and application and further categorized into silicone, modified silane polymer (MS), polyurethane (PU), polyvinyl acetate (PVA), epoxy, acrylic, and others such as cyanoacrylate, styrenic block, and others. Silicone sealants are widely used sealant that is used to protect electrical equipment against moisture, dust, dirt, and other contaminants. The industry is estimated to register a massive growth rate during the forecasted period primarily due to the growing demand for electrical and electronic products in both mature and developing countries.

Region-Wise Analysis

The regions analyzed for the market include North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.

  • The Asia-Pacific region dominated the global market share by more than 39.9%. With a CAGR Of 6.3%. The increasing demand from industries such as construction, packaging, and electronics in the countries such as China, India, and Japan will continue to drive the need for adhesives in packaging applications.
