The Global Bioadhesives Market exceeded 750 kilo tons in 2015. The capacity is estimated to increase from 2 million tons in 2023 to almost 2.5 million tons by 2024. Demand for bio-based eco-friendly products is anticipated to drive the market during the forecast period (2016-2024). Greater awareness about the adverse effects of synthetic materials can propel market growth. Additionally, bio-based origin and low manufacturing costs should execute a primary role in industry growth.
The use of bioadhesives in flexible packaging could boost demand for the product. Moreover, robust demand from chemical and healthcare applications may impel market growth. Most governments worldwide are regulating chemical industries in an attempt to reduce the use of fossil fuels. This could substantially increase the demand for bioadhesives. Environmental regulations that promote the use of biodegradable products could positively impact the market.

The global bioadhesives market is fragmented into sources, applications, and regions. Sources are split into animal base and plant base. Starches and gelatin are the key ingredients that are used in these bonding agents. In 2014, plant based adhesives dominated with more than 85% of the total market volumes. Availability of raw materials, like soy, corn, and starch at low prices is projected to increase the production of these glues during the forecast period.
Animal based adhesives could expand at a CAGR of over 13% till 2024. These glues are derived from animal bones, hides & hooves and are commonly used in wood work. However, the low shelf-life of such adhesives can hinder the growth of the bioadhesives industry.
