Adhesives are non-metallic materials which are able to join two substrates using adhesion mechanisms. Bio-adhesives are natural polymeric materials. They are derived from the natural substances and exploit strong adhesion and cohesion capabilities. Primarily bio-adhesives are constructed either from plants or animal source. These adhesives consist of starch and gelatin which are derived from the source. It has a broad application set including personal care, furniture, healthcare, paper and pulp and amongst others.
The global bio-adhesives market is primarily driven by rapidly growing demand for bio-adhesives across the globe due to increasing awareness about bio-based products. Additionally, surging demand for bio-adhesives from healthcare and personal care industries is expected to bolster the demand in near future. Utilization of bio-adhesives in wood and furniture industry is also projected to have a positive impact on the environmental issues. Moreover, the stringent rules and regulations imposed by regulatory bodies and governments are expected to offers novel opportunities in the coming years.
