Europe is experiencing an increase in the demand for bone glues in the form of adhesives, according to a recent report from Research and Markets. The demand for such adhesives is particularly high for use in binding book covers and book spines.
Many drivers are reportedly contributing to the growth of the bone glues market in Europe, the most important of which is an increase in the demand for bone glues for woodworking applications. This is mainly due to the various benefits that bone glues offer, such as high strength, high initial tack, and a superior gap-filling ability. In addition, there has been a growing preference for bone glues in woodworking applications compared to synthetic glues, thereby contributing to the growth of the market.
The report states that the rising cost of raw materials, due to tight supply of bovine bones, is a major challenge in the market.
