Welcome to the 2022 ASI Top 20! To develop our annual listing of the leading worldwide manufacturers of adhesives, sealants, and related products (e.g., tapes, labels, films), we reached out to manufacturers and requested details such as sales figures pertaining specifically to their adhesives and sealants-related businesses. We also pored over secondary sources such as annual reports and press releases to collect relevant supplementary information.

A very special thanks goes out to the companies that supplied their details in support of this effort. We couldn’t do this without you! Your input helps to ensure the accuracy of the ranking and solidify the ASI Top 20 as a go-to resource for the entire industry. 

In cases where manufacturers chose not to provide industry-specific information and we weren’t able to gather enough data from additional, public sources in order to make reasonable estimates, those companies unfortunately had to be left out of the ranking. If you would like your company to be considered for inclusion in next year’s ASI Top 20, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

For our new Voices from the Top supplement, I reached out to key leaders at some of the top companies in the industry to get their insights on a number of issues. Find out what execs at Henkel, 3M, H.B. Fuller, Bostik, and Jowat are thinking about subjects such as their companies’ strategies for success, supply chain issues and other challenges, and what opportunities they see in the industry’s future.
