The latest report from examines the ‘Global Hot Melt Adhesives’ market for the forecast period 2015-2025. The primary objective of the report is to identify opportunities in the market and present updates and insights, pertaining to various segments of the global hot melt adhesives market.

Hot melt adhesive are thermoplastic glues that are thermally melted on application and attain adhesion strength on cooling. Hot melt adhesives consist of one or more polymers, as well as additives such as stabilisers, pigments and resins, which are carefully blended to exhibit different characteristics from base polymers. Hot melt adhesives are named after polymer bases. Various types of hot melt adhesives are ethylene vinyl acetate, polyolefin, polyamide, polyurethane, polyester, etc. They are used in industries, such as packaging, non-woven, automotive, product assembly, textiles, tapes and labels, woodworking, paper bonding, electronics and many more.
