Global Hot Melt Packaging Adhesives Market By Product (EVA, Polyurethane, Rubber, Polyolefin and Others); By Application (Flexible Packaging, Folding Cartons, Boxes and Cases, Labeling and Others) and Region -Analysis of Market Size, Share and Trends for 2014 - 2019 and Forecasts to 2030
Hot melt adhesive popularly referred to as hot glue is a thermoplastic adhesive that is widely sold in a varied diameter, solid cylindrical shape. Hot melt adhesives are designed to melt in electric hot glue pistons. Hot melt adhesives have a special quick processing advantage over other adhesives. Hot melt adhesives require no drying after application, unlike water-based and solvent-based adhesives. Hot melt adhesives start bonding immediately after being applied to the material, as it instantly cools down to its solidification stage. Such fast solidification feature of hot melt adhesives is ideal for industrial applications requiring high-speed production line, bonding flexibility, wide gap filling, rapid green strength, and minimal shrinkage.
Global Hot Melt Packaging Adhesives Market size was registered at USD XX billion in 2019 and is estimated to reach USD XX billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2020 to 2030. Packaging brings a distinctive appeal to every product and helps clients to differentiate between a specific product and other related products. Flexible packaging such as containers, pouches, and films can be used to package foods, drinks, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and personal care items. Hot melt adhesive use is gaining popularity because of its low processing costs and superior durability. The emergence of hi-tech machinery & equipment has enabled manufacturers to improve market innovations for hot melt adhesives and incorporate high-quality, environmentally friendly thermoplastics without the addition of solvents.

By product, the market can be segmented into EVA, Polyurethane, Rubber, Polyolefin, and Others. Replacement of conventional solvent-based adhesives due to the higher carbon footprint has made it possible to use hot melt adhesives products in various industrial formulations. Due to its economic viability and high performance, EVA resin is used as the primary raw material in hot melt processing. EVA provides superior heat and UV resistance, durability at low temperatures, and high resilience used in packaging, clothing, and electronics. The segment of ethylene-vinyl acetate is due to the product's growing penetration in a wide range of industries along with supporting government regulations regarding the use of low VOC adhesives. EVA imparts plastic-like properties that ensure that wax effectively suits strength to polymeric coatings. Thus the product category is expected to dominate the segment.
The application segment can be classified into Flexible packaging, Folding cartons, boxes and cases, Labeling, and Others. The segment of flexible packaging is expected to record the highest volume CAGR over the forecast period. Adhesives used in flexible packaging are effective in a variety of processes including heat & cold seal, lidding, lamination, blister packaging, horizontal flow packaging, and fill packaging. The demand for flexible packaging can be attributed to the increasing demand from the food & beverage industry. Labeling is expected to record the fastest growth rate over the forecast period, in terms of revenue. Water-based adhesives, due to their environmentally friendly nature, are gaining prominence in the labeling segment. These are formulated for labeling and bonding applications using natural and soluble synthetic polymers. Clear labels have been replacing inks in the packaging industry when tagging containers. The growing demand for labels is expected to drive demand for the product in the coming years.
