Growth of major end-use industries such as construction and automotive mainly in the emerging economies of Brazil and Argentina is expected to boost the market for adhesives and sealants over the next six years. However, the volatility in raw material prices coupled with environmental concerns regarding the use of synthetic (petroleum-based) adhesives and sealants is expected to hinder market growth over the forecast period. In order to reduce reliance on synthetic adhesives and sealants, major manufacturers such as The Dow Chemical Company, Henkel and Danimer Scientific LLC among others have been shifting their focus towards developing bio-based adhesives and sealants.

Acrylic and polyvinyl acetate (PVA) based adhesives together accounted for over 50% of the total market demand in 2012. Key adhesives application industries include electronics, automobiles, construction and packaging among others. Owing to their fast setting properties Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (EVA) based adhesives are expected to be the fastest growing product segment at an estimated CAGR of 5.6% from 2013 to 2019. Sealants market was dominated by silicone based sealants, accounting for over 30% of the total regional demand in 2012. Growing automotive industry in Brazil is expected to fuel the demand for sealants in the region over the forecast period.

Pressure sensitive applications (PSA) emerged as the largest consumer of adhesives with 27% of the Latin America market in 2012. The furniture industry is expected to be the fastest growing market for adhesives at an estimated CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period, owing to growing disposable income in the region. On the other hand, automotive industry is expected to be the fastest growing market for sealants, with demand estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2013 to 2019 in Latin America.
