Global Foam and Adhesives Market Opportunities 2022

Published: 24 November 2020

The highly interconnected global technical foam and adhesives markets are amongst the fastest growing on the planet, with a combined projected future market size of more than $80 bn. The demand for technical foam solutions, and bonding technologies, is expected to increase across the worldwide automotive, aerospace, construction, appliance, furniture, medical, and electronics sectors year-on-year.

The global technical foam market is projected to be worth $9.1 bn in 2020, and forecast to expand to $15.7 bn by 2025*, and the global adhesives and sealants market size was valued at $47.28 bn in 2019 and is projected to reach $66.44bn by 2027**.

To best serve these markets and associated global supply chains, the Foam Expo / Adhesives & Bonding Expo portfolio is today announcing major plans to enhance its European offering with the launch of Adhesives & Bonding Expo Europe (located alongside Foam Expo Europe), plus the launch of Foam Expo China, to help connect the worldwide foam sector with Asian-Pacific’s key manufacturing hub in Shanghai China.

Smarter Shows Tarsus Ltd’s Joint Managing Director Mindy Emsley said ‘as the world builds back from the impact and consequences of Covid-19, we felt it was important to enhance the scale and scope of our successful Foam Expo / Adhesives & Bonding Expo portfolio, to ensure the highly interconnected technical foam and adhesives industries can interact - face-to-face - share the latest ideas and technologies, forge relationships, and conduct business. Once we can meet and gather in a safe environment, we very much look forward to bringing the industries that we proudly serve back together, whether that’s in North America’s automotive hub (Novi MI), Europe’s key manufacturing center (Stuttgart Germany) or Asia-Pacific’s manufacturing heartland (Shanghai China)’.
