Adhesives and Sealants Market in South Africa: Decline

Dublin, July 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The report “The Manufacture of Adhesives and Sealants in South Africa 2021” has been added to offer.

Bonding and sealing agents have many applications and are used in all sectors of the economy. Demand for adhesives and sealants has been mixed since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. While home containment and the increase in online shopping have led to an increase in demand for packaging adhesives and DIY products, remote working and online learning have contributed to a decline in the application for office and school stickers.

Concerns about the toxicity of chemicals present in various adhesives and sealants are leading to the development of new products that meet the growing demand for adhesives and sealants that are not harmful to the environment and health. . The demand for adhesives and sealants depends on the level of activity of the sectors it supplies, such as building and construction, paper and packaging, and the automotive industry. The sector is affected by the weak economy, the influx of cheap imports, rising production costs, power outages and the coronavirus crisis.

The increase in e-commerce has led to an increase in demand for adhesives for packaging and labeling. Other areas of growth include high performance adhesives and sealants used in the healthcare market and DIY products. A resumption of building renovation and construction activity bodes well for the sector. Innovation is a key growth engine and industry players are developing new products and improving the performance, safety and environmental impact of their products.
