According to the latest market report published by Future Market Insights (FMI) titled “Hot Melt Adhesives Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2015-2025”, the hot melt adhesives market is expected to be valued at US$ 5.4 Bn in 2015 and expand at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2015 to 2025, accounting for US$ 8.9 Bn by 2025.

A hot melt adhesive is a thermoplastic glue that is thermally melted on application and attains adhesion strength upon cooling. Hot melt adhesives consist of one or more polymers as well as additives such as stabilizers, pigments and resins, which are carefully blended to exhibit different characteristics from base polymers. Hot melt adhesives are named after polymer bases. Various types of hot melt adhesives include ethylene vinyl acetate, polyolefin, polyamide, styrenic block copolymers, polyester, etc. Hot melt adhesives are used in several industries including packaging, non-woven, automotive, product assembly, textiles, tapes and labels, woodworking, paper bonding, electronics and many more.
