U.S. adhesives consumption continued to grow in 2015, a positive trend that began after the culmination of the global recession seven years ago. Compared to 2014, the market has increased by 3% in value terms to $11.3 billion, and by 18% when compared with 2008.
If you own a company that participates in the global adhesives and sealants industry, you’ve likely enjoyed several years of sustained growth bolstered by the performance of major end use sectors such as packaging, construction, and automotive.
