Posted on 8/4/2015 9:02:59 AM By ASC

In 2014, adhesive and sealant formulators shipped 30.3 billion pounds of product (13.8 metric tons).

The Americas represented 31% of these shipments.

The packaging segment was the largest segment, globally – representing 35% of production shipments.

In North America, 8.2 million pounds of product was shipped in 2014. 

The North American market will grow by an annual growth rate of 3.1% through 2017.

Packaging represents 57% of the adhesives market in North America.

Sealants will grow at an annual growth rate of 3.3% through 2017. 

The Asia Pacific market is poised to have the strongest growth in the world, with a projected 5.3% annual growth rate for both adhesives and sealants.

The market stands at 10 billion pounds of product shipped in 2014, with China being the largest consumer at 5.6 billion pounds of products shipped.

I could go on and on with data and figures….in fact, I could produce 99 pages of facts and figures for Asia Pacific and 131 pages of facts and figures for North America.

That is one of the primary value drivers of the Adhesive and Sealant Council.
