According to a new report by Reports and Data, the global instant adhesive market is expected to reach $3.52 billion by 2028 from a market size of $2.2 billion in 2020. This growth is associated with manufacturers increasingly substituting plastic components in place of metal or glass to design lighter weight, lower cost, and more durable products. Plastics are highly corrosion-resistant and do not require surface treatment to withstand exposure to corrosive materials.

Instant adhesives, mostly comprised of various esters of cyanoacrylic acid, are strong and fast-acting, with medical, industrial, and household applications. The acryl groups in the resin, in presence of water, rapidly polymerizes, forming long and strong chains.

Cyanoacrylates (CAs) are rapid curing and have high bonding strengths on plastic and rubber materials. The versatility of these adhesives makes them highly useful in many industries including electronics, for printed circuit board components and wires, and in medical technology for disposable plastic devices.

Light curing cyanoacrylates are one of the newest and fastest growing adhesive technologies in the market. Light cure CAs perform similarly to traditional instant adhesives but with the advantage of instant, tack-free cure when exposed to UV or visible light, since they do not require the use of solvent-borne accelerators to speed the cure process.
