Our annual ASI Top 20 list of leading global adhesive and sealant manufacturers emphasizes sales figures and other details for finished adhesives and sealants, as well as related products such as tapes and labels.
June 27, 2022
Every year, we study the leading worldwide manufacturers of adhesives and sealants to compile the ASI Top 20. In considering the rankings, we focus on sales figures (and other details) for finished adhesives and sealants, as well as related products such as tapes and labels.
Contaminated printed circuit board assemblies can lead to poor performance. Oils and flux residue can prevent proper adhesion of conformal coatings, while marking inks, adhesives, and other materials can cause PCB delamination, blistering, shorting, dendrite growth, and electrochemical migration. It is therefore critical to remove all leftover manufacturing contaminants and to do it in an environmentally sustainable way.
Generally speaking, the hand dispensing of resins in prototypes is not a complicated process. Optimizing several factors will aid in the development of a transparent commercialization process, with straightforward resin dispensing and industrial dispensing equipment selection, all completed in an expedited timeframe.
A supplier of packaging technologies for adhesive and sealant manufacturers is integrating sustainability into its product development process.

Companies are becoming more aware of the environmental impact of their purchasing decisions. As a result, manufacturers of adhesives and sealants are increasingly demanding sustainable products, a trend that is driving change in the packaging sector.
Headlights for cars and commercial vehicles need to be continuously and consistently well bonded.

Dispensing technologies for the automotive industry play a central role beyond the production of engines, transmissions, and airbags. Even in the production of headlights for cars, commercial vehicles, and heavy-duty transport systems, nothing works without the precise dispensing of 1- or 2-component adhesives and sealants.
Thanks so much to the executives at Henkel, 3M, H.B. Fuller, Bostik, and Jowat who participated in this year’s Voices from the Top series. Here you can discover what they are thinking about subjects such as their companies’ strategies for success, supply chain issues and other challenges, and what opportunities they anticipate for the adhesives and sealants industry.
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.
