Footwear Adhesive Market: Drivers and Restraints
Attributing to convenience in use, footwear adhesives are expected to witness noteworthy growth in the global footwear industry. Recent developments have introduced water-based footwear adhesives in the market; they are formulated as environment-friendly substitutes for traditional footwear adhesives.
Manufacturers are expected to replace solvent-based footwear adhesives with water-based ones, owing to growing health concerns among consumers. Further, water-based footwear adhesives offer vital improvement in terms of economy and efficacy to industries.
Increase in the demand for various international brands, along with ever changing fashion trends in regions, such as the U.S. and Europe has proven to be a prominent driver for the footwear adhesives market.
Rising demand for high performance footwear, such as sportswear, and protective shoes, among others is expected to gain significant prospects for the footwear adhesives market in the coming future.
However, high cost of raw material in the manufacturing of footwear adhesives could impede growth of the market. Addition of new polymer materials in producing uppers and soles for footwear has led to bond failure, due to the introduction of plasticizers in adhesives films.
Attributing to rising environmental concerns, several governments are taking measures in their respected countries to curb diseases, such as shoemaker’s paralysis, which is caused due to exposure to harmful gases released in the manufacturing process of footwear adhesives. Such measures may affect growth of the market over the forecast period.
