Posted on 2/6/2017 11:51:12 AM By Steve Duren

The ASC 2015-2019 Water Based Adhesives Report will be the eighth market report that ASC has published over the past 40 months. This report is being written by ChemQuest, an ASC Affiliate Member. The RFP was guided by the ASC Global Resources Committee. All eight of the ASC market reports can be purchased online at the ASC Store.

The new approach to ASC market reports is to have a combination of quantitative and qualitative information with more of an emphasis on downstream qualitative interviews. This approach is a balanced method that provides members top level quantitative views across select key segments and sub-segments and technologies and chemistry types that are further supplemented with qualitative interviews across manufactures of adhesives and downstream end users. This approach is part of the 2013 ASC long range plan under the Community Knowledge Integration objective.

The newest addition to the ASC library of market intelligence is the 2015-2019 Water Based Adhesives in North America Market Report. This report provides purchasers a snapshot of unmet needs from end users, unmet needs, policy and regulation change as well as competing technologies and key decisions that are driving material selection for end users. The report is based on 90+ interviews and provides overall Water Based Adhesive market size for North America and provides four-year growth rates and will address the following technologies: Acrylic, Bio-based natural, Epoxy, PUD- polyurethane dispersion, PVA-poly vinyl acetate, SBR – carboxylated styrene butadiene, VAA- vinyl acetate acrylic, VAE- vinyl acetate ethylene.
