Global Laminating Adhesives Market: Overview
Laminating adhesives keep intact the substrates together after the lamination process. Several notable benefits provided by laminating adhesives include increased or decreased gas permeability, flame resistance, electrical insulation, heat resistance, thermoforming capability, chemical resistance, and optical clarity. Laminating adhesives are used in a wide range of end-use applications such as pharmaceutical, food pouches, frozen food cartons, medical, agricultural containers, industrial, papers & graphics, instant photograph, and mold label.
Global Laminating Adhesives Market: Growth factors
Laminating adhesives for flexible packaging are one of the promising adhesive solutions extensively utilized in food packaging sector. The laminating adhesives are anticipated to witness high demand in the coming years, mainly owing to factors such as lower wastage, lesser treatment time, lesser emission, and higher bond strength. Also, rising demand for package foods in healthcare and personal care goods have augmented market growth. On the other hand, the government programs and increasing consumer awareness towards the practice of ecological adhesives have restricted the growth of the laminating adhesives, further hampering the growth of the global laminating adhesives market.
