Packaging represents a major end-use market for hot melt adhesives. Hot melt adhesives market share from the packaging application is expected to exceed USD 3 billion by 2024 and attain a CAGR of 5.5% over 2016-2024. The hot glues based with styrene block copolymer and amorphous poly-alpha olefins are widely used in hygiene products including adult incontinence, baby diapers, and female hygiene products. Hot melt adhesives industry size from disposable applications is projected to surpass a valuation of USD 1.6 million by 2024.  Apart from this, HMA also finds usage in footwear, furniture, textiles, automobiles, and pressure sensitive products.

APAC represents​ one of the fastest growing market for HMA. India and China are the prominent growth avenues in Asia Pacific, supported by robust infrastructure development and aggressive investments in the manufacturing sector. China hot melt adhesives industry share has witnessed a substantial raise, owing to strong demand from the furniture and the construction industry. This wide application scope has also stimulated the polyamide, EVA, and PUR based products. The EVA hot melt adhesives market is projected to generate revenue over USD 3.5 billion by 2024. Amorphous poly-alpha-olefin and EVA are two main product segments which are mainly used in automobile, paper industry, and woodworking applications. Amorphous poly-alpha-olefin hot melt adhesives industry is estimated to record a CAGR of 5% over 2016-2024. APAOs are used for repairing motorcycles, marine crafts, trucks, and cars on account of high resistance to moisture, chemical inertness, and UV protection.

Europe, led by Germany hot melt adhesives market, is expected to record highest gains at an annual growth rate of 4.5% over 2016-2024. Escalating automotive industry, packaging, electronics, and textile industries in the region has provided a positive outlook for regional hot melt adhesives industry to flourish. Moreover, stringent regulation by EPA and REACH pertaining  to the use of bio-based products has fueled HMA market growth.

Globally, hot melt adhesives industry is quite consolidated in nature with companies such as Dow Chemical, 3M Company, Avery Dennison, Henkel, Sika AG, and H.B. Fuller accumulating significant industry share.
