Certain resin types include epoxy (EP), acrylic/polyacrylate, polyurethane (PU/PUR), silicon, and others.  They are used in applications ranging from design and production to repair, maintenance, and field service. The rising demands for UV adhesives for their characteristic properties such as fast curing rates, high bond strength, and releasing no volatile organic compounds (VOC), and flexible packaging applications are expected to drive the market through the forecast period especially in the highly populated countries in Asia-Pacific region such as India, China, Japan, and South Korea.

COVID-19 Impact

The outbreak of a novel coronavirus is not only a threat to public health, but also for economic and business growth Worldwide. The global UV cured adhesives market has slowed down owing to a contraction in demand from most of the industries such as electronics, optics, packaging, and others, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. However, it is expected that there will be an increasing focus on hygiene and sanitation for a better and safer lifestyle. Acceleration in demand from medical and consumer electronics is also likely to drive the UV curing system market gradually from 2021 to 2025. High machinery cost compared to other adhesives and unfavorable conditions arising due to the COVID-19 outbreak is expected to hinder the growth of the UV adhesives market.

For instance, Adhesive’s market player Techsil has introduced an orange, fluorescing UV curing product which is a transparent acrylic adhesive designed for bonding plastics. And on the other hand, Panacol has developed a range of new one-component epoxy adhesives that cure at very low temperatures, especially for electronics applications. The new initiatives and development by the adhesives industry likely to have a positive impact on the UV-Curable Adhesives Market.

UV-Curable Adhesives Market Segment Analysis - By Substrate

Glass dominates the UV-Curable Adhesives Market growing at a CAGR of 7.3%. Glass laminates have been readily obtained by photocuring at an ambient temperature of an acrylic adhesive consisting either of a liquid resin or a solid thermoplastic polymer. The light induced polymerization process was followed by real time infrared spectroscopy. Close to 100% conversion was reached within a few seconds of exposure. Light-curing acrylates, such as the glass metal adhesive offer a multitude of possibilities in the making of glass furniture or the production of state-of-the-art glass partition systems. Due to its extraordinary long-term stability and humidity resistance, the glass-metal adhesive is particularly suitable for use in sanitary facilities. Glass industry, for instance, is a massive global industry with 1200 companies and producing a staggering 209 million tons of glass annually.

UV-Curable Adhesives Market Drivers

UV-Curable Adhesives for Construction and Industrial

UV-curing adhesives are materials that are polymerized and cured in a short time by the energy radiated from ultraviolet irradiation devices. These are especially used as industrial materials for sealing, bonding, and coating. The demands for UV adhesives in the construction sector are escalation owing to their special properties like high strength, excellent stability, high cure speeds, on-demand curing, high viscosity, high transparency, and high precision. The ongoing government projects, for instance, Abu Dhabi Airport Expansion in the United Arab Emirates, 4,320 MW-Dasu Hydropower Project in Pakistan, Guided missiles in the United States and others are the development that certainly has a positive impact on the UV-Curable Adhesives market.

Benefits of UV-Curable Adhesives to Agriculture

UV-Curable Adhesives, at an appropriate frequency and dose, can intensify the production of active substances in medicinal and traditional plants and it can also benefit to conserve the healthy growing environment. With the outburst happening in indoor and urban farming, not only are the energy savings of LEDs fascinating, but the progressions made in UV LEDs are building is likely to bring the additional benefits of ultraviolet light, particularly wavelength UV-A and UV-B, to indoor agriculture. UV LEDs have made considerable progress in recent years, not only due to advances in the manufacturing of solid-state UV devices but also as a consequence of augmented pressure to discover more environmentally friendly and energy-friendly options of producing UV light. Moreover, NASA determined that LED lights are the best single source lights for growing plants on Earth as well as in space. Such initiatives and benefits are enhancing the growth rate of the UV-Curable Adhesives market. 

UV-Curable Adhesives Market Challenges

UV-Curable Adhesives tends to Shrink

UV curing adhesives can have rather a high shrinkage during curing, mainly acrylate-based formulations. This can lead to lower adhesion as well as higher stress. Post-cure may be necessary. Some epoxy-based UV adhesives can require post-curing with heat to attain their final properties. Such setbacks can have a negative impact on the growth of the UV-Curable Adhesives market. 

UV-Curable Adhesive installation issue and produces a sticky layer

A major obstacle of UV curable adhesives is that a minimum of one mating part has to be transparent and not UV light blocked. And it can resist only a limited number of sterilization cycles. Therefore, currently, these adhesives are mostly used in-dispensable devices that are sterilized fewer times. Another challenge is that oxygen inhibition produces a sticky layer on the top of the surface which fallouts in incomplete curing. Atmospheric and dissolved oxygen in the resin reacts with free radicals forming less reactive peroxy radicals. This not only reduces the rate of polymerization but also can result in an incomplete cure which produces a tacky surface. Such obstacle might hinder the growth of UV-Curable Adhesives Market.
